The American Bar Association's Commission on Effective Criminal Sanctions has withdrawn proposed resolutions which sought to limit public access to criminal justice system records, according to a press release issued by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. "We appreciate that the commission heard our concerns and took a second look at the dire effect these recommendations would have had on transparency in government," Reporters Committee executive director Lucy Dalglish says.
