Three years later and one task force later it is starting to look as if the "public" really means lawyers.
You - as consumers of "justice" have an opportunity to tell the states judiciary what you think about equal access to justice.
As a Pro se litigant will you have the same access as lawyers? What if you want to research how many GALs make certain recommendations for certain parents? How many times has that lawyer from Camden or Portland "won" their divorce for their client? These and many other questions could be answered - or - they can remain hidden until someone who has the time can go and look through the cardboard boxes these files reside in.
You be the judge.
We encourage you to email the Judicial Branch at - firstname.lastname@example.org your letter must be in pdf format and received by December 15, 2017. Any comments left here will be forwarded unless you ask not too.
