The state political watchdog agency moved Thursday to post online financial disclosure forms submitted by state judges. Judges had asked that the commission allow them to omit entirely the information they want redacted for online posting, but FPPC Chairwoman Ann Ravel said the commission felt it was important to obtain and post online a form that indicates the presence of reported interests.

"The public, when they’re looking to see whether or not a particular individual, and a judge as well, has an economic interest in a matter that’s before them, has a right to know that there’s an issue and that the person does have an economic interest," Ravel said.
