Judges’ Technology Advisory Committee
Use of Personal Information in Judgments and Recommended Protocol
The JTAC Open Courts and E-Access to Court Records and Privacy Subcommittee was asked in February, 2004 to consider developing and implementing a standardized national protocol to de-identify family judgments which would allow all of them to be posted on court websites.
The subcommittee drafted a recommended protocol that was endorsed by JTAC on February 4, 2005. It should be noted that this protocol extends to all judgments in which sensitive personal information or information subject to publication bans may be contained as it is clear that these issues are not limited to family cases.
