Electronic Availability and Redaction of Transcripts of Court Proceedings
On December 1, 2007, the amendments to the Federal Rules of Appellate, Bankruptcy, Civil, and Criminal Procedure that implement the E-Government Act of 2002 became effective. These amendments were further revised by the Judicial Conference at its March 2008 session. The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Iowa has now fully implemented the revised Judicial Conference policy governing public access to transcripts of court proceedings. See the Letter from the Clerk for complete details on this new policy/procedure.
