Administrative Order 2010-092 to be Vacated
The Superior Court in Maricopa County has, pursuant to Administrative Order 2010-092, limited
access to all pleadings in family court cases for the first 45 days after the initial filing of the case. This was
adopted in response to concerns regarding cases involving domestic violence. Since the adoption of this practice, the
Court has heard concerns from various persons and organizations, including the domestic violence community, about
the limitation of access of court records and the negative effect of such limitation.
The Court is committed to providing open access to the court and is therefore planning to vacate the administrative
order (2010-092) effective April 1, 2011. The Court encourages anyone who has a concern or comment relating to
Administrative Order 2010-092 to send their comments by March 11, 2011 to:
Honorable Carey Hyatt
Old Court House - 002
125 W. Washington
