Idaho Rules for Electronic Filing and Service


Rule 16: Privacy Protection in Orders, Judgments, and Decrees

(a)   Protection of unredacted court orders, judgments and decrees. If possible, the court must refrain from including in a court order, judgment, or decree, the personal data identifiers set forth in Rule 15(b). If unredacted personal data identifiers are required by statute or court rule, or are material to the proceedings and must be included in an order, judgment, or decree that is open to the public then the unredacted document will be protected from public access. Copies of the unredacted document must be served on the parties and must be available to the parties and other government agencies without court order for purposes of the business of those agencies. A redacted copy of the order, judgment or decree must be available to the public; however, no redacted copy must be prepared until there is a specific request for the document, in which case the document should be redacted in the manner specified in Rule 15(b).

(b)   Exception. The court may include unredacted personal data identifiers in documents that are exempt from public disclosure pursuant to Idaho Court Administrative Rule 32.
