Judicial Processing - Processing A Case - Recording Dismissals, Sealed Cases, and Waiving Sealing

1. The judge should place on the record the section of law under which a dismissal occurs on the record in order to document whether the dismissal is eligible for sealing. The section of law should be included whenever reporting such dismissals to another agency.

2. If sealing is waived in the interest of justice, it should be noted in the record and reported as such.
