What must I tell the judge at the hearing on my Motion to Impound?

Produced by Mass Law Reform Institute
Reviewed May 2021

After you file your motion there will be a hearing. You must tell a judge the reasons you need to impound:

  • information that would let the other side find you,
  • sensitive information,
  • or both.

If the judge allows your motion to impound your contact information:

  • They will ask for your contact information.
  • The court will keep this impounded information private.
