Court Case Confidential Information Rules (2.420)
As Clerks of Court, our offices protect the public by reviewing and redacting confidential personal information included in court documents, and we take this responsibility very seriously. It’s critical for the public to know, the Florida Supreme Court has amended Florida Rules of General Practice and Judicial Administration 2.420 regarding the review and redaction of personal information contained in certain court documents.
Starting July 1, 2021, filers will be solely responsible for ensuring any confidential information contained in court records filed with the Clerk is appropriately identified for redaction in these cases. A filer is anyone who submits official court documents with the Clerk in order to start or support a legal action.
