For requesting redaction/electronic restriction of personal information in documents or pleadings
filed in our Court:
- If the case is closed, there is no need to reopen the case solely to file a motion to redact.
Effective December 1, 2014, use the CM/ECF new event: Motions/Applications > Redact (25.00 Fee Per Case) and pay the $25 filing fee.
Attach and upload our local form Order Granting Restriction of Electronic Access, available onour website.
The Order lays out the procedure for restricting access to personal information, as well as the filing of a redacted version of the document once the order is granted. If you have not already, please begin using this form Order.
This type of motion can be granted ex parte. Upload as an ex parte order type and do not include objection language.
- The recommended docket event to file the redacted document is Other > ~Document and type "Redacted" in the docket free text before the document description. This will prevent the setting of new case deadlines and/or filing fees, as well as help identify the purpose of the filing. You may link the redacted filing to the original document.
Thank you for your attention.
