On August 30, 2013, the Washington County Circuit Clerk’s office removed from the Internet all pre-2009 court documents that could contain sensitive personal data in accordance with The Arkansas Supreme Court’s Administrative Order 19. Administrative Order 19 imposed a responsibility on document-management system vendors to limit exposure to court documents available via Internet search engines (e-search) that may contain non-redacted sensitive personal information. That meant that Order 19 required our office to undertake a costly and detailed historical redaction project which we deemed important to our constituents.
We are proud to announce the completion of this historical redaction project. All pre-2009 court documents, close to 1,000,000 images, have been reviewed and redacted to meet the Arkansas State Supreme Court requirements. Upon completion, February 21, 2014, we returned the images to their previous viewing availability. This means all court documents pre-2009 that the Washington County Circuit Clerk has posted since we began posting court documents in 1998 are now stricken of sensitive personal data as defined by Administrative Order 19 and are once again available through e-search to view and to print.
We thank you for your patience and if you have any questions please feel free to call the office during regular business hours.
