Sealed Civil Motion Docket Entries Will Appear on the Docket
The Civil Sealed Motion has been changed from a sealed ENTRY to a sealed DOCUMENT. This means that a Notice of Electronic Filing (NEF) will go out to all counsel, but the document itself will only be available to limited court staff. Since the Sealed Motion docket entry will appear on the docket, attorneys will now be able to e-file related documents (memorandums in opposition, replies, etc) and link them to the sealed motion. This was not possible previously.
The Criminal Sealed Motion will remain as a sealed ENTRY. No NEF goes out and it does not appear on the public docket.
