Please note that all court records are a matter of “public record.”  However, there are certain items within court files that are not allowed to be released.  Such as:

  • Pre-Sentence Reports
  • Judge’s Notes
  • Sealed records pursuant to CPL 160.50 and Article 720
  • Victim identity if alleged offense is of a sexual nature
  • RAP Sheets
  • Motorist abstracts

Otherwise all records are considered “public record” and are not subject to FOIL request rules.
