Are Settlement Agreements Public Record

Under North Carolina`s Public Records Act, government records are subject to public access, unless an exception specifies that this is not the case. The broad definition of the “public records” act, as interpreted by the courts, covers all records, regardless of the format that is established or obtained during the transaction of public transactions. GS 132-1. Therefore, when a government agency receives a request for a dataset relating to the government operations transaction and there is no exception that applies, the agency must provide access (inspection and/or copy) in accordance with GS 132-6. Over the years, the legislator has amended the Public Registrations Act, in particular to create new exceptions. In 1989, the legislature added a new law on settlements. GS 132-1.3 provides that billing statements for certain types of shares are public records. It also limits parties to the proceedings and judges to seal transactions in such appeals, except in certain circumstances described in the Statute.

It is by no means clear that information that may relate to a student in a transaction agreement is likely to be considered a “student data set” under these provisions. It is more likely that a court will consider whether the information in question could unduly prejudice a student`s data protection interests, either on the basis of the waiver set forth in Section 6255(a) below, or under California`s constitutional right to privacy. In Shane Group, Inc.

v. Blue Cross Blue Shield, 825 F.3d 299 (6th Cir. 2016), the court held that “[c] members cannot meaningfully participate in the process under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23(e) unless they can verify the basis of the proposed transaction and other documents in the court minutes.” Id. at 309. Therefore, an inaccurate party to the class action should have access to court records on which a settlement proposal is based, because without such access,”[d]he opposition proceedings under Rule 23(s) seriously functioned … The protection of a minor`s data protection interests and medical information was considered to be a sufficient interest to go beyond the public`s right of access to court-authorised comparisons. . . .
