How Do I Remove Information from Court Case Records?

Florida law contains provisions that protect the display of certain information in court case records on publicly available Internet websites. In accordance with Florida Statute and Florida Rules of Judicial Administration, the following information may be eligible for redaction:


  • Social Security numbers
  • Bank account numbers
  • Credit, debit or charge card numbers
  • Victim information
  • Birth or Death Certificates
  • Minor Name when a victim in specific criminal charges
  • Clinical, medical and health records
  • Other

The Broward Clerk of Court uses refined electronic and manual processes to protect confidential and exempt information. If such information is inadvertently released, it should be reported so that the images of these documents can be redacted on the website.

To request removal of one of these exemptions from the Clerk of Courts public website, choose the Request Information Removal task bar button when viewing the document. The request must specify the case number, document name and date, document page number and type of confidential information contained in the document to be reviewed. There is no fee for this service.
