Tex. R. Sup. Ct. 4

As amended through February 20, 2024
Rule 4 - Redaction of information in e-filed document
(a) Unless the Court orders otherwise, an e-filed document must not contain a social security number; a birth date; a home address; the name of any person who was a minor when the underlying suit was filed; a driver's license number, passport number, tax identification number, or similar government-issued personal identification number; or a bank account number, credit card number, or other financial account number. The e-filer must redact all of this information in accordance with the redaction guidelines posted by the Court's Clerk on the Court's website; however, the e-filed document may contain a reference to this information as long as the reference does not include any part of the actual information (e.g., "passport number"). For good cause, the Court may order redaction of additional information.
(b) The e-filing of a document constitutes a certification by all attorneys of record for the party filing the document that the document complies with paragraph (a) of this rule.
(c) If an e-filer believes any information described in paragraph (a) of this rule is essential to an e-filed document or that the e-filed document would be confusing without the information, the e-filer may submit the information to the Court in a reference list that is in paper form and under seal. The reference list must specify an appropriate identifier that corresponds uniquely to each item listed. Any reference in the e-filed document to a listed identifier will be construed to refer to the corresponding item of information. If the e-filer provides a reference list pursuant to this rule, the front page of the e-filed document must indicate that the reference list has been, or will be, provided.
(d) On its own initiative, the Court may order a sealed reference list in any case. The Court may also order that a document be filed under seal in paper form, without redaction. The Court may later unseal the document or order the filer to provide a redacted version of the document for the public record.
