CLERK OF COURT & COMPTROLLER

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FLORIDA

Redaction Picture

Redaction Issue

The Clerk’s Office is experiencing an unusually large backlog of public records requests for court documents because of issues involving a software vendor. As a result, some requests for court records will take longer than usual to fulfill. 

 The issues are related to a global malware incident that affected the software vendor along with companies and organizations worldwide. No court documents have been affected. The Clerk’s Office uses software to assist a team of employees in redacting court documents before they are released publicly. The Florida Supreme Court requires certain confidential information to be redacted from court documents before they are released. We apologize for any delay and we are working with our vendor to resolve the issues.
