Tarlton v. Saxbe, 507 F.2d 1116 (D.C. Cir. 1974).

The use and dissemination of criminal records for routine suspect checks, sentencing and parole hearing has been the subject of much recent discussion. Much of the controversy revolves around the increased access to criminal history files through the FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC) which serves as a clearing house for law enforcement agencies throughout the nation. Due to conflicting court decisions and varying state statutes, the rights, requirements and limitations for expunging these records are presently in a state of confusion.
