Protecting confidential information in court filings has always been a belt and suspenders system, according to attorney Paul Regensdorf.

The belt was the requirement in Rule of General Practice and Judicial Administration 2.420 that lawyers include a notice when their electronic court filings include information in one of 23 automatically protected categories. The suspenders were an automatic redaction review conducted by clerks to ensure lawyers didn’t miss anything.
