Starting Feb. 1, the state Court of Appeals will begin to make the briefs, records and motion papers for all its cases available online free of charge, the court announced yesterday. Electronic access will be through a new searchable database called the Public Access and Search System, or Court-PASS. The court said the only restriction on access will be in cases where papers are sealed under law, such as appeals of Family Court rulings. Officials said sensitive information, such as Social Security numbers, phone numbers and the names of parties’ children, will be excised from otherwise open documents. Documents for cases pending on Jan. 1, 2013, or those filed with the court afterward will be accessible through the new system.
