Menendez re-introduces legislation to keep information on judges away from the serfs


“Legislation was reintroduced Wednesday to protect members of the federal judiciary by keeping their personal information secret, seven months after the first effort to pass the bill was blocked on the Senate floor. … U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez, the bill’s chief sponsor, sought to pass the legislation on the Senate floor in December, but U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., blocked its consideration, demanding that any such legislation include similar protections for members of Congress. … The measure would block government agencies from publicly posting information that could identify judges, and provides funding to states and localities to redact judges’ personal information from property, motor vehicle and other public records. In addition, companies could not buy or sell personal information about judges.” (07/15/21)
