New Fee and Procedure - Motions to Redact

Effective Monday, December 1, 2014, there is a new fee on the Bankruptcy Miscellaneous Fee Schedule for a Motion to Redact. It is a $25.00 fee. This type of motion is filed when a party files a document that includes personal and/or private information.  To correct the issue, the party will first file a Motion to Redact, using the new CMECF Event - Motion to Redact.  In the motion the party will state why the document should be redacted.  As an attachment to the motion, the party must attach the new, redacted document. 

Once the motion and separate certificate of service are filed, the filer must e-mail a proposed order to the court with the redacted document as an attachment as well.  Once the order has been signed, the court will handle restricting all access to the original document and will attach the new, redacted document.  If you have any questions regarding the new fee or procedure, please contact the court, 225-346-3333.
