du Feu and Lambert: Publishing Legal Information in a Small Jurisdiction: Privacy versus Open Justice

Sue du Feu and James Lambert have published Impacts and Effects of Publishing Legal Information in a Small Jurisdiction: Privacy v Open Justice, Legal Information Management, 14, 284-289 (2014).

Here is the abstract:

This paper […] outlines the challenges faced by the Jersey Legal Information Board (JLIB) in providing free access to legal information. The power of modern internet search engines has implications for a small island jurisdiction wishing to make its case law available on-line (see: http://www.jerseylaw.je ). Having established protocols and policies to ensure a balance between open justice and privacy, several years later, JLIB is faced with concerns from individuals who feel that continuing public access to their earlier misdemeanours is an unfair burden. The paper will explain how the JLIB addressed the challenge of publishing court judgments online while safeguarding the interests of the individual.
