Legislation and Compliance Update: North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts Proceeds with Proposed Data Changes

The North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) has proceeded with their plans announced last December to change the manner in which data is returned to third-party providers such as backgroundchecks.com. This change reduces instant results for criminal records to basic elements (name, DOB, case number, etc) without an indication of the charges or disposition. While a court case is pending to return the results to their previous standard, an injunction has been denied, allowing North Carolina to provide the significantly limited data pending the lawsuit’s final judgment.
