Second Court of Appeals

Redaction/Posting of Documents 

ATTENTION ALL FILERS: Please review and follow Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure 9.8 (Protection of Minor's Identity in Parental-Rights Termination Cases and Juvenile Court Cases), 9.9 (Privacy Protection for Documents Filed in Civil Cases), and 9.10 (Privacy Protection for Documents Filed in Criminal Cases).

Beginning with most appeals filed on or after September 25, 2014, the court will post briefs and other documents filed by parties, except for docketing statements, to its website. Certain other exceptions will apply. A party may file a motion requesting that, for good cause, the court decline to post briefs and documents in a particular case, or that the court post briefs and documents in a case. Although it is a party's responsibility to redact sensitive data from all briefs and other filings, the court will require a brief or other filing to be amended and resubmitted if it discovers unredacted sensitive data or other information that is protected by law.
