Can I Really Be Sanctioned or Disciplined for My Filing

CLE - VIDEO ENCORE: Can I Really Be Sanctioned...

Learn how the new Public Access Policy requires lawyers to change how and what they file in every Pennsylvania court.

Imagine being sanctioned because your motion included your client’s date of birth? It can happen starting January 8, 2018 when Pennsylvania's Public Access Policy goes into effect. The policy applies to all civil, family and criminal cases in the appellate and trial courts, and requires filing parties to redact confidential information. If a party violates the policy, a court can impose sanctions.

In this video encore CLE program, panelists offer guidance regarding the stipulations of the new policy. The following details of the policy of will be highlighted:

  • Specific types of information that must be safeguarded from public view
  • Requirement of lawyers to redact confidential and sensitive information in all court-filed documents
  • Requirement of lawyers to separate the documents they file so that certain documents cannot be viewed by the public
  • Requirement of lawyers to certify that every filing complies with the policy
  • Ability of a court to impose sanctions on its own motion or in response to a motion by any party

This video program will address the practical effects of the new policy and provide tips regarding how attorneys can prepare their offices to comply with the new Rules.
