SECTION 50-D
Personnel records of court officers
Civil Rights (CVR) CHAPTER 6, ARTICLE 5
§ 50-d. Personnel records of court officers. 1. As used in this
section, "personnel records of court officers" means all personnel
records of court officers as defined in paragraph a of subdivision
twenty-one of section 2.10 of the criminal procedure law, used to
evaluate performance toward continued employment or promotion, and under
the control of the office of court administration.

2. Personnel records of court officers shall be disclosed in a court
action pursuant to the relevant provisions of the criminal procedure
law, the civil practice law and rules, or any other provision of law
governing such disclosure only after the court has notified the subject
of such record that such record may be disclosed in a court action and
the court has given the subject of such record an opportunity to be
heard on the question of whether the records sought are relevant and
material in the action before the court. If, after such hearing, the
court determines that only a portion of such records are relevant and
material in the action before it, it shall make those parts of the
record found to be relevant and material available to the persons so
requesting.

3. The provisions of this section shall not apply to any grand jury or
any agency of government which requires the records described in
subdivision one of this section in the furtherance of their official
duties.
