Overview

 

A Motion to Redact Personal Identifiers (FEE) is filed by a debtor, debtor’s counsel or any other party in interest, to request that the court restrict access to a previously filed document containing personal identifiers. The motion should identify the information that was improperly included in the original filing with the court. The filing party will also need to file a complete redacted document as a separate attachment to the motion when it is filed.

IF the motion seeks to redact any information outside of Rule 9037(a), the filing party should immediately prepare an e-order for submission to chambers (see Single Order Upload) after filing the motion.

IF the motion seeks to redact any information outlined in Rule 9037(a), the filing party SHOULD NOT upload an e-order.

The motion may be filed in a closed case so long as it is to redact one of the four personal identifiers listed in FRBP 9037(a). A motion to reopen would not be required in this instance.
