Can a court hide information which is not prohibited from public access?

Yes. YThe rules of what is shown via electronic access are up to each local court.

  1. The Supreme Court's electronic access policy is the key. Section 4.3 para. (c) of that policy (on p. 5) lays out the local court's right to make privacy restrictions beyond those specifically spelled out by the policy:
    • Information not covered in subsections (a) and (b) may be excluded from public access in electronic form by local rule.
