Access to and Sealing of District Court Records

The District Court has issued a revised version of A Guide to Public Access, Sealing & Expungement of District Court Records. This is a publication we have long loved in the law libraries for its clarity in explaining which court records are available to the public and which are not. Unfortunately, it does not explain the process of access or what information the researcher needs to provide in order to access records. The sections on sealing and expungement are also clearly written, well annotated, and include forms.
