I am starting work on a new open records project for the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. Texas already has many individual defense lawyers doing some great open records work. However, these records are not easily shared with other defense attorneys. Ergo, the benefits of these records are not reaching the maximum number of attorneys/defendants.
A central database of open records PDF files seems long overdue. I am going to the December TCDLA executive committee meeting in Denton to pitch this project.
I want to start with Intoxiylzer records. I am seeking maintenance, failure, repair records for all counties in Texas. I’m also seeking TCLEOSE records, training manuals etc.
Are you a criminal defense attorney with open records experience? Are you a law student interested in criminal defense or open government? Do you have a closet full of records to share? Please contact me via email.
