When do I file my Motion to Impound?

Produced by Massachusetts Law Reform Institute
Reviewed May 2021

The court has a rule for impounding information. The rule says you must file your motion to impound before you give the court any of the information you need to keep private.

If you need the court to impound any information in your complaint, like your address, phone number and email, file the Motion to Impound with your complaint.
