The Administrative Board of the Courts has approved the adoption of a

new rule – section 202.5(e) of the Uniform Rules of the Supreme and

County Courts (22 NYCRR 202.5(e)) – requiring attorneys to omit or

redact certain confidential personal information from court filings in

Supreme and County Court.   This rule became effective on January 1,

2015; compliance is voluntary through February 28, 2015, and mandatory

thereafter. The new rule is included here. It covers both e-filed and

paper-filed cases.  …  Matrimonial actions, proceedings in Surrogate’s Court or

proceedings pursuant to Article 81 of the Mental Hygiene Law are

excepted from Rule 202.5(e). The Unified Court System recommends a new

form “Redaction Cover Page” … for use by persons filing

paper-filed court papers regarding confidential personal information

subject to the rule. 

The form the court recommends accompany those papers that are to be redacted. can be found at the link below:
