Nevada’s Supreme Court, underscoring “the court’s belief in open government and our commitment to preserve the public nature of the business of the judicial branch” unanimously approved a new rule that provides civil court records remain open unless a compelling case can be made for sealing. It alows anyone, whether a party to a case of not, to request the unsealing of a court record and prohibits super-sealing – the closing of an entire file. (1/2/08)
