The Administrative Office of the Pennsylvania Courts has published some technical and mechanical amendments to the Case Record Public Access Policy of the Unified Judicial System that it is considering recommending to the Supreme Court.
The most significant proposal is that the option of allowing the filing of two different versions of the same pleading, one redacted and one unredacted, would be eliminated, so that all counties would require the use of the Confidential Information Form. (Seven counties currently require the filing of two versions in lieu of the Confidential Information Form. See “Public Access Policy Compliance for Orphans’ Court Filings” for additional information.)
Comments are requested by August 28, 2019.
