New Legislation on Sealing Records

This is more of my continuing series on new legislation in Nevada.

Assembly Bill 519 dated March 23, 2007 prohibits the district court from sealing a public record unless certain circumstances are met. For example, sealing the records may not have the purpose of concealing a public hazard and may not create a state of imminent danger to the public.

Before sealing a public record, the court also must hold a hearing, provide notice of such hearing to the parties and the public, and allow the parties to present evidence and briefs at the hearing.
