A judge has ordered that the court file be sealed in a case brought by a part-time elementary school teacher and actress who contended that her reputation and career could be ruined if her identity is revealed as the model in a sexy jewelry ad that appeared, to her dismay, online in 2007.

While there is a presumption against sealing court records “except upon a finding of good cause” under 22 NYCRR 216.1(a), Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Shirley Werner Kornreich (See Profile) ruled in Jane Doe v.
