(Applicable to all counties)
Impoundment in the Superior Court shall be governed by Trial Court Rule VIII (Uniform Rules on Impoundment Procedure (“URIP”)), as supplemented by paragraph 2(b), below.
Paragraph 2(b) of this Rule makes exceptions to the notice requirement of URIP Rule 13(b), which ordinarily requires that when a person files impounded material, he or she also must file a notice alerting the clerk to that material.
Because the following materials are impounded by law, and the clerks' offices impound them in the normal course, no Rule 13(b) notice is necessary when filing any of them:
The clerk shall maintain the impounded material described above in accordance with the clerk’s duties prescribed in URIP Rule 9.
3. Redaction and treatment of personal identifying information shall be governed by Supreme Judicial Court Rule 1:24, as supplemented by paragraph 4 below.
4. Pursuant to Section 5(c) of Supreme Judicial Court 1:24, personal identifying information contained in administrative records filed by agencies shall be treated as may be provided in Standing Order 1-96, as amended from time to time.
