The Court has issued a general order regarding revised transcript procedures to provide increased privacy protections. The order requires the court reporter to file the original unredacted transcript under temporary seal to determine if redactions are required. When an original unredacted transcript is filed, each party must review it to determine if the transcript must be redacted. To request redactions for personal identifiers, the party must follow the procedures and deadlines set forth in Local Rule 5.5. To request redactions for confidential information, other than personal identifiers, the party must file a motion with the court within 7 days after the transcript is filed. If a party determines that no redactions are necessary, the party must file a Notice that No Redaction is Required within 7 days after the transcript is filed.

If no redactions are requested or ordered, the unredacted transcript will be unsealed. If redactions are requested or ordered, the unredacted transcript will be permanently sealed. This order will take effect on Monday, October 14, 2019. Please see the order for more information.
