AOPC Considering Amendments to Case Record Public Access Policy
- Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts
The Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts is considering recommending to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania the adoption of amendments to the Case Record Public Access Policy of the Unified Judicial System that create a single, uniform method of filing confidential information throughout the courts of the Commonwealth as well as a few clarifying amendments .
Under consideration are proposed amendments to Sections 7.0(A) and (C) of the policy which would require litigants and attorneys to safeguard confidential information by using the Confidential Information Form. This would be a change for filers in the appellate courts and trial courts in seven counties which require the submission of filings with confidential information in two versions, a "Redacted Version" and "Unredacted Version."
All interested persons are invited to submit suggestions, comments, or objections. In particular, comments regarding any impact upon affected constituencies and whether an implementation period of six months is sufficient are sought. All communications in reference to this proposal should be submitted no later than August 28, 2019 to:
