Original Note: judyrecords was recently mentioned in this press release (2/26), which was found after this article was published. After seeing this, CA State Bar disciplinary records have already been removed from the index, including those intended to have been published as well. These records were all (confidential & non-confidential) previously publicly available at https://discipline.calbar.ca.gov (now offline). Additionally, I reached out directly to the email in the press release to address the issue and offered to help as appropriate. After checking, I have neither been attempted to be contacted directly or indirectly about this matter yet, although issue was mentioned as being discovered on the 24th. It's possible efforts to contact have been made, but I haven't seen any yet. Update (2/26 11:50PM CT): I also contacted web host to inform them of the issue and ask about if/what time they have received any communication about this issue. Update (2/27 1:22AM CT): Web host responded that after verification, no such issues have been reported. Update (2/27 11:30AM CT): CA State Bar updated their press release to indicate the removal of the records as noted above. Update (2/27 4:45PM CT): CA State Bar has reached out in writing to discuss the issue. Update (2/27 11:05PM CT): Accepted an invite to discuss the issue. Tentatively, the number of affected cases is less than 1,000. Update (2/28 8:40PM CT): CA State Bar has published an update here (2/28 update). Update (3/1 12:30PM CT): Out of an abundance of caution, the search function is disabled while any possible case access issues are resolved. Additionally, direct access to cases of the affected case management system have been disabled. Update (3/2 10:00PM CT): CA State Bar has published a noteworthy update here (3/2 update). Update (3/3 11:45PM CT): No updates for today. Update (3/4 6:15PM CT): Expect to have an update Monday. Update (3/7 3:20PM CT): Expect to have an update tomorrow now (Tues) but a lot of positive movement happening. Update (3/8 4:10PM CT): Continued positive movement. Expect to have an update later tonight or tomorrow (Wed) now. Update (3/9 5:00PM CT): There have been significant steps in collaboration with Tyler Technologies and the State Bar of California over the last week. I believe that Cal Bar will be releasing more detailed information soon, but anticipate that the number of affected cases will be relatively close to my original estimate of < 1,000. In working with Tyler Technologies, we have identified a subset of portals that may be similarly impacted, and judyrecords has saved case identifiers that will allow cross-referencing between systems. Together, we have tentatively identified a process that will allow answering questions about which non-public records may have been exposed. The way in which non-public case data had been downloaded by judyrecords has been shared fully, openly, and discussed with Tyler for about a week (since last Thursday). At this point, I have let them know that I am asking them to take a public position on whether they believe, don't believe, or are undecided about whether non-public cases were accessed inadvertently / unintentionally by the end of the day tomorrow, and I have also let them know I intend to collaborate fully as we have discussed/agreed regardless of the position they take. It is important to me that if there is any belief or any question whatsoever as to whether the non-public case data was accessed intentionally, that I make my position known openly and clearly that the access to non-public cases was inadvertent and not intentional in any way. Update (3/10 6:48PM CT): I am working to get the site back online for general access, minus affected data sources, as well as a separate page for this issue. Update (3/11 2:50PM CT): Tyler Technologies has put up a page for this issue here. Update (3/11 4:30PM CT): CA State Bar has published an update here (3/10 update). Related here here, and here. Also, in the interest of transparency and clarity, the article leading me to disable search and certain case access on 3/1 here. I'll be addressing the issues raised soon and provide updates. Related here. Update (3/14 11:30AM CT): General access will be restored this week, minus affected data sources. A page will be available by the end of the week here. Update (3/14 7:25PM CT): CA State Bar has published an update here (3/14 update). Update (3/16 8:15AM CT): CA State Bar has published an update here (3/15 update). They have re-enabled their attorney discipline portal. Update (3/18 3:02PM CT): What Happened With Tyler Technologies is now available here. I'm going to push out restoring general access to at least next week. Update (3/20 10:15AM CT): Updated What Happened With Tyler Technologies to add Q&A here.
