Protective Order Entered in Hepatitis C Cases

U.S. Magistrate Judge Joel B. Rosen has entered a protective order in a group of lawsuits challenging the New Jersey Department of Corrections’ (NJDOC) policies regarding the screening and treatment of Hepatitis C.

The protective order was entered with the consent of the parties and is designed to protect from disclosure the personal medical information of the plaintiffs and other NJDOC prisoners. Protected material, per the order, must be denominated as such, filed under seal and returned to the disclosing party at the conclusion of the litigation. See: Bennett v. Correctional Medical Services, USDC, D. N.J., No. 1:02-cv-04993-NLH-KMW (11/15/05). The order is available in PLN’s brief bank.
