The recent court decision in All of Us or None v. Hamrick, 64 Cal. App. 5th 751 (2021), made the routine background check process more difficult by prohibiting searches of criminal court records with the use of a person’s birth date or driver’s license number. The plaintiffs in the case challenged the Riverside County Superior Court’s Public Access system on the grounds that it violated Rule 2.507 of the California Rules of Court. In February, a bill was introduced that would reinstate more streamlined searches of court records, requiring that publicly accessible electronic indexes of court records in criminal cases be searchable by driver’s license, date of birth, or both.
