Confidentiality

Because much of the work of the Juvenile Court involves children, the Court has a legal duty to protect the confidentiality of many of its hearings.

There are certain limited exceptions, mostly relating to allegations of serious delinquent acts by juveniles, where the Juvenile Court can release information to the public.
