Executive Summaries Added to CCAP

A press release from the Wisconsin Courts outlines some of the recent changes to the CCAP case management system. The changes are in response to criticism that the information contained on CCAP could be misinterpreted.
The changes include:

  • Executive summaries that help viewers to interpret case information. (Available for criminal, traffic, forfeiture or civil cases filed with a restraining order.)
  • A glossary of legal terms
  • A change in the length of time that certain records remain accessible on the site. (Will follow the minimum records retention rule developed by the Supreme Court)
