The bill requires a court to suppress court records related to an
eviction proceeding or an action for termination of a mobile home park
tenancy so that the records are not publicly available. If an order granting
the plaintiff possession of the premises is entered in the action, the court
must lift the suppression order unless the parties agree that the records
should remain suppressed.

The names of the parties included in a court record that is
suppressed may be used by a court for administrative purposes, but the
court shall not, for any reason, publish the names of the parties online.
A summons in an eviction proceeding must include a notice
concerning suppression of court records related to the action.
