Suppressing Court Records Of Eviction Proceedings

Concerning suppressing court records of eviction proceedings.
2020 Regular Session
Courts & Judicial
Bill Summary

Court records related to an eviction proceeding or an action for termination of a mobile home park tenancy are suppressed court records that are not publicly available. If an order granting the plaintiff possession of the premises is entered in the action, the court records are no longer suppressed and the court must make the records available to the public, unless the parties agree that the records should remain suppressed.

The names of the parties included in a court record that is suppressed may be used by a court for administrative purposes, but the court shall not, for any reason, publish the names of the parties online.

A summons in an eviction proceeding must include a notice concerning suppression of court records related to the action.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
