1156. Nondisclosure of address in criminal and civil proceedings.

No person shall be compelled to disclose a program participant’s actual address during the discovery phase of or during a proceeding before a court of competent jurisdiction or administrative tribunal unless the court or administrative tribunal finds, based upon a preponderance of the evidence, that the disclosure is required in the interests of justice. A court or administrative tribunal may seal that portion of any record that contains a program participant’s actual address. Nothing in this subchapter shall prevent the state, in its discretion, from using a program participant’s actual address in any document or record filed with a court or administrative tribunal if, at the time of filing, the document or record is not a public record.
