Case Law Dissemination on the Internet and Identity Protection; The NOME Anonymization Assistant

The 5 November 2004, by Frédéric Pelletier,

Head of Policy Making, LexUM, CRDP, University of Montréal, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

In Canada, Internet publication of case law does not require a systematic anonymization of parties named in decisions. However, there are statutory requirements that identities of certain participants in the judicial system be protected. Given the supplementary costs entailed by anonymization, free access to these decisions has become somewhat scarce in Canada. In order to contribute to lowering the costs of anonymization, we are developing a software application designed to automate some of the repetitive chores associated with the anonymization of judgments. The current version of this application, called NOME, is an MS Word macro. NOME allows for automating the replacement of names mentioned in a document by their initials or by any other characters.
