    New Court Rules Effective July 1, 2016


    New Court Rules Effective July 1, 2016

    Attorneys and litigants must be aware of new filing rules and new mandatory eFiling rules

    (Waukesha-WI) The 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.

    Retzer Nature Center Remodel to Begin This Fall


    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Date: Tuesday June 28, 2016

    Contact: Rebecca Mattano

    Phone: 262-896-8014

    (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 about the project visit www.waukeshacounty.gov/recycling or call 262-896-8300.
