Notice re: Review of Level 2 Sealed Cases

In accordance with the announcement made by Chief Justice Chase T. Rogers on May 4, 2007, the Judicial Branch is reviewing family and civil cases that were sealed prior to July 1, 2003, the effective date of the rule changes regarding the sealing of a file. The Honorable Barbara M. Quinn, deputy chief court administrator and a former member of the Judicial Branch’s Public Access Task Force, is overseeing this process.

The plan calls for a review to determine: (1) whether the cases were properly designated as sealed; (2) whether the docket sheets, which set forth the chronology of the case, may be displayed on the Judicial Branch website; and (3) whether the motions and orders to seal the file may be made publicly available. At this point, there are approximately 500 of these cases statewide. Certain cases that have unique issues, including files that are unavailable pursuant to Practice Book Section 7-10, are not included in this phase of the review process, but those files will be addressed in a subsequent phase.
