Redaction preferred to sealing says court

15 Jan

The Federal Court of Appeal issued an illustrative order on January 6th in which it rejected a consent motion to seal documents that included the appellant’s SIN number. Instead, it ordered the respondent to redact and re-file. For some reason the Attorney-General filed the documents with SIN numbers for a second time on appeal after the appellant sought protection of the same information in the lower court hearing.
