Sealed Documents

Currently the Second Circuit does not accept electronic filing of sealed documents. Parties must file paper copies with the Court. The case manager will make the appropriate docket entries but will not attach any sealed documents to the corresponding docketing event.


Parties will receive Notices of Docketing Activity by email for sealed documents filed in public cases.


Unless a case was sealed in the court or agency below, the Court will not seal any document in a case unless it grants a party's motion to do so. A motion to seal a case must be filed electronically in accordance with the procedures set forth in Filing a motion.


If the Court has permitted a case or document to be sealed, do not file the sealed documents through ECF.
