The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts provided notice yesterday afternoon of a national breach of the CM/ECF system and called upon courts to implement new security procedures to protect highly sensitive documents (HSDs). We do not know if the breach impacted WVND specifically. The court will post new procedures as quickly as possible for the limited types of sealed documents that meet the definition of Highly Sensitive Documents on this website. Most Highly Sensitive Documents are filed under seal as preliminary documents in criminal cases.
