    Comments sought:
     
    The Judicial Council’s Rules and Projects Committee has approved the circulation for comment of a proposal entitled “Judicial Administration: Public Disclosure of Settlement Agreements.” This proposal would amend California Rules of Court, rule 10.500 on public administrative records to clarify that settlement agreements must be disclosed in response to public records requests and that the names of judicial officers may not be redacted from settlement agreements produced in response to these requests.
     
    The proposal to amend rule 10.500 is available for viewing on the internet at:  http://www.courts.ca.gov/policyadmin-invitationstocomment.htm. The proposal is being circulated on a special expedited cycle so that it can be presented to the Judicial Council at its May 24, 2018 meeting.
     
    The deadline for receiving comments is Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.

     
    All comments will be reviewed by the Rule 10.500 Working Group, which will make recommendations to the Judicial Council's Rules and Projects Committee and then to the full council. Comments received will become part of the public record of the council's action.
     
    When submitting comments, please indicate whether you agree with the proposal, would agree with the proposal if it is modified, or do not agree with the proposal.
     
    We encourage your comments and appreciate your participation in this effort.
