By order of the court, there is no Internet access to sealed records. Parties to the action (plaintiff or defendant) and counsel of record may access sealed cases by submitting a request in person to the Clerk of the Court located at the division of District Court where the case was filed. Photo identification is required. Access to adoption cases requires a court order in addition to photo identification.
Sealing case records originates with a requirement to protect confidential information from public access. Specific reasons for sealing a case may vary. Certain case types such as adoption, paternity and juvenile abuse or neglect matters are automatically sealed by statute. In addition, the court may order the sealing of individual civil, domestic, temporary protective order, probate, guardianship or involuntary civil commitment cases. Criminal records may be ordered sealed upon meeting certain statutory requirements. An order to seal includes all records, papers and exhibits in the custody of court. Other records relating to the case, in the custody of such other agencies and officials as are named in the order, must also be ordered sealed. All proceedings recounted in the record are deemed never to have occurred. In some circumstances, the court may seal only certain documents in a case, without sealing the entire file. If a criminal case is ordered sealed as to one defendant, the entire case will be sealed from Internet access.
