Massachusetts Uniform Rules on Impoundment Procedure Rule 9: Clerk's Duties
Upon entry of an order of impoundment, the clerk shall make a notation in the civil docket indicating what material has been impounded. All impounded material shall be kept separate from other papers in the case and shall not be available for public inspection. Such impounded material shall be available to the court, the attorneys of record, the parties to the case, and the clerk, unless otherwise ordered by the court.
Upon expiration or other termination of the order of impoundment, the material shall be returned to the file, unless other arrangements have been made, and the docket marked accordingly.
