It is the responsibility of the filing party and counsel to remove personal and private information from a document filed with the Clerk of Court's Office.  The responsibility of the filing party and counsel to remove personal and private information extends to and includes exhibits or addenda attached to filing, such as preliminary and final judicial reports which itemized state tax liens that use Social Security numbers as case numbers or medical records.  

The Clerk of Courts and deputy clerks shall have no responsibility for the removal of any personal and private information filed in a public document in the Meigs County Clerk of Court's Office.  

Personal and private information must be submitted in a separate filing which will be deemed by the Court as a non-public record.  The information will be kept in a separate envelope within the case file marked as follows:  Notice of Personal Identifiers sealed and only to be opened by the Court or Clerk's Office with permission of the Court.  

Journal entries that necessarily include personal and private information must be submitted to the Clerk of Court's Office as follows:  a copy that includes the personal and private information for placement in the non-public envelope and a copy with personal and private information redacted for placement in the public file.  The copy not containing the personal and private information (for the public file) will have the notation "redacted" at all places in the document where such information was removed.  The Court will sign both journal entries.  

The Clerk of Courts will not remove any personal and private information from a stamp-filed document, including records or transcripts transmitted to this court from another court, without a court order to do so.  The Clerk of Courts may refuse to accept for filing any document that contains personal and private information that has not been redacted or submitted in accordance with this order.  

Any personal and private information in documents filed prior to the implementation of this rule is considered public.  Any personal and private information in records or transcripts transmitted to this court form another court is considered public.  A party or an attorney in a case, or any other person whose personal and private information is contained in a public record of this Court, may petition the Court for removal of the personal and private information, and if the request is granted, the personal and private information will be removed from from a stamp-filed document and placed in a separate envelope and deemed a non-public record.  The petition shall contain the caption of the particular case.
