The court policy states that the redaction responsibilities for filed documents rest with the filer. The courts' official response to Senator Lieberman's letter outlined the complexity of the privacy issue in court records, and restated the courts' committment to educating lawyers about the need for privacy redactions. The notice in CM/ECF is designed to remind filers of their responsibilities.
I have concerns that not enough has been done to protect personal information contained in publicly available court filings, potentially violating another provision of the E-Government Act. A recent investigation by Carl Malamud of the non-profit Public.Resource.org found numerous examples of personal data not being redacted in these records.
