Records destruction

Proposed record destruction policy would enable the State Bar to destroy, after a set period of time has expired, closed files that did not lead to formal disciplinary proceedings. Any records and files related to formal disciplinary proceedings, files having historic or institutional significance or files related to litigation in which the bar is a party would not be affected
