New Court Rules Effective July 1, 2016
Attorneys and litigants must be aware of new filing rules and new
mandatory eFiling rules
Wisconsin Supreme Court has adopted two new petitions creating new laws that
take effect today, July 1, 2016. The first new law is designed to protect
information in circuit court records. The
second new law pertains to mandatory eFiling in the circuit courts.
The protected information law is intended to lessen the
potential of identity theft. Documents filed on or after July 1, 2016 may not
contain the following information: 1)
Social Security numbers, 2) Driver license numbers, 3) Financial account
numbers, 4) Tax Identification numbers, and 5) Passport numbers.
If these numbers are not needed for court proceedings,
filers may simply leave them out or redact them (black them out) from the
documents filed. If this information is
needed for court proceedings, it must be filed on a Confidential Disclosure of
Protected Information form.
The protected information law applies to all court cases,
including confidential cases such as juvenile and guardianship matters. If a filer fails to redact protected
information, the court may order the filer to submit new documents and pay any
costs incurred by other parties. Visit http://www.wicourts.gov/services/attorney/redact.htm
to find the new statute, forms, frequently asked questions, and more.
Many new rules regarding the new eFiling law will take
effect on July 1st. eFiling will become mandatory on a
county-by-county and case type-by-case type basis with statewide implementation
targeted to be completed by 2019. It is
anticipated that Waukesha County will introduce mandatory eFiling for Civil,
Small Claims, Family and Paternity cases in November 2016.
Voluntary eFiling is currently available in Waukesha County
Circuit Courts and all filers are encouraged to begin using the eFiling system
now rather than waiting for it to become mandatory. Visit www.wicourts.gov/efile
for more in-depth information about what eFiling rule changes become effective
July 1st and to learn more
about training opportunities available to court users.

(WAUKESHA, WI) – A new capital project is underway
to remodel the existing Retzer Environmental Learning Center to
incorporate classroom and exhibit space for recycling and resource
conservation education. In addition to
more interactive public exhibits, there will be many recycling and water
programs offered for schools, scouts, public groups and adults that can be
paired with existing Retzer Nature Center programs.
This project will integrate Departmental environmental
education programming to include recycling, waste reduction, water conservation
and ecology. Integration of programming
strengthens education and offers comprehensive and dynamic learning experiences,
which may provide a model for other centers. This comprehensive approach to
environmental education is critical to enhance the future of resource recovery
and conservation in Waukesha County.
The Retzer Environmental Learning Center remodeling project
is scheduled to be completed in late spring of 2017. Retzer will remain
open for programming and events during the project. Retzer Nature Center is a part of the Waukesha
County Park System, which is a natural resource based park system that
demonstrates stewardship while providing recreational and educational
opportunities. For more information
