Effective November 6, 2017, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware will start making audio recordings of certain proceedings available to the public through PACER, as well as the standard ECF notifications received by counsel. The recordings themselves will be an attachment to a PDF document, and will be in MP3 format.
Initially it will only be for proceedings before Judge Kevin J. Carey, although it may expand to other Judges in the future. Click here for the notification posted by the Clerk’s Office, and click here for instructions on accessing the audio files through ECF notification or PACER.
Included with the notification are details regarding confidential, sealed or personal information that may come up during a hearing and how that is being handled. Short answer, counsel will have to move to seal the entire recording, as partial redactions are not possible.
