Transcripts -- Request to Redact

 Rev. 05/06/19




Under Rule 9037, and subject to certain exceptions set forth at 9037(b), any filings with the court (electronic or paper) that contains an individual's social-security number, taxpayer-identification number, or birth date, the name of an individual, other than the debtor, known to be and identified as a minor, or a financial-account number, may include only: (1) the last four digits of the social-security number and taxpayer-identification number; (2) the year of the individual's birth; (3) the minor's initials; and (4) the last four digits of the financial-account number.

It is the sole responsibility of the person making the filing with the court to ensure compliance with Rule 9037.

If redactions are necessary, parties must file a Request for Redaction form with the Court and make service on the Court Reporter or Transcriber within 21 days from the filing of the transcript. The request must indicate where the personal identifiers that are to be redacted appear in the transcript by page and line number. Once a request for redaction is filed, the Court Reporter or Transcriber has 31 calendar days from the date of the filing of the transcript, to file a redacted version of the transcript.
