Guidelines on Personal Identifying Data in Court Records

The Supreme Judicial Court is soliciting comments on Proposed Interim Guidelines for the Protection of Personal Identifying Data in Publicly Accessible Court Documents through September 19, 2008. "The proposed Interim Guidelines are intended to prevent the unnecessary inclusion of certain personal identifying data elements in publicly-accessible documents filed with or issued by the courts, in order to minimize the opportunity to use such documents for identity theft or other improper purposes."
