Open Record Law and Legal Definition
An open record is an allotted time period which is granted by a judge. During an allotted time period, evidence and/or written arguments or responses can be submitted by one or more hearing parties or evidence can be received from subpoenas duces tecum recipients.
A judge has the right to either leave a record open while conducting a hearing or reopen a record after a hearing. Records generally remain open for 30 days. Records shall be held open for less or more than 30 days. Judges can either shorten or extend open records. An open record is not a time waiver. A judge may grant an open record though time is not waived. A claimant may waive more or less days than the number of days the record is open.
