Don’t Forget: Changes Coming to Redaction of Confidential Information

Update from Palm Beach Clerk of Court

Beginning July 1, all filers of circuit civil, county civil and small claims court documents will be solely responsible for ensuring that confidential information is redacted or is identified for redaction.

In Opinion 20-1765, the Florida Supreme Court amended Rule 2.420 requiring the filer to be solely responsible for identifying confidential information in small claims, county civil and most circuit civil court documents.
Anyone filing documents in these types of cases must either:
  • Redact the information themselves before filing the document; or,
These changes do not apply to juvenile, family, guardianship, probate or criminal cases.
