What personal information cannot be included in eFiled documents?

The Supreme Court created new rules of civil procedure that include language prohibiting the filing of documents that contain un-redacted, sensitive data. If the sensitive data is redacted, the attorney must retain an original un-redacted document. Sensitive data includes social security numbers, taxpayer ID numbers, bank account and credit card numbers, and government ID numbers. The rules also designates as sensitive information the name, address, or birthday of a person who is a minor at the time of the filing of the suit. Sensitive data should not be included unless it is required by law, court rule, or administrative regulation. The court may strike any document that contains un-redacted data in violation of the rule.
