A bill passed by the Virginia House and Senate, H.B. 2426, “relating to posting certain information on the Internet; prohibitions” stipulates that “Beginning January 1, 2004, no court clerk shall post on a court-controlled website any document that contains the following information: (i) an actual signature; (ii) a social security number; (iii) a date of birth identified with a particular person; (iv) the maiden name of a person’s parent so as to be identified with a particular person; (v) any financial account number or numbers; or (vi) the name and age of any minor child.” The legislative summary of the bill is available here. The bill awaits the signature of Governor Mark Warner.
