Abstract:     
Open justice is the belief that accountability and legitimacy within the legal process can be achieved through making accessible information about court procedures, court records, laws and judicial decisions. This paper examines several recent high-profile instances where criminal evidence was released to the public, using open justice mechanisms, and argues for a more robust assessment of the sensitivities of this material before it is disclosed.
