Helping CRAs solve for the most challenging jurisdictions

PII Redaction Challenge in U.S. County Courts

Some U.S. state and county courts have made a decision over recent years to remove access to date of birth and other personally identifiable information (PII) from public court records over growing concerns for protection of consumer data.

This has taken effect in counties of California, as well as in counties of Michigan, creating significant obstacles to completing timely and reliable background checks. Negative impacts of this decision on court research providers, background screeners and employers include longer turnaround times, less reliable background checks and delays in hiring decisions.

Key Benefits for CRAs

CourtSmart helps streamline the background check process:
  • Information from court records is compared against TotalVerify’s proprietary additional non-reportable data to provide "data on data" giving CRAs additional context regarding court record information, which provides a clearer picture of the linkages to retrieved court information
  • Additional non-reportable data points increase confidence in the review of records to help minimize potential disputes 
  • Supplements third ID processes when dealing with common name workflows
  • Potentially reduces costs related to on-site runner and case copy services for cases that may otherwise appear as a match.
