Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Iris Martinez has walked back a campaign pledge to give the public more access to records from her office under the state’s Freedom of Information Act.
The clerk is the official record keeper for the Circuit Court and is responsible for collecting and distributing tens of millions of dollars in court fines and fees.

That exclusion means the public has largely been kept in the dark about the operations and funding of one of the largest unified court systems in the country.Liquid syntax error: Error in tag 'subpage' - No such page slug injusticewatch
