It observed that “mudslinging happens all the time in custody disputes” and that if it closed the record every time it heard arguments along those lines then courts “wouldn't have any open proceedings.” The Supreme Court found that trial court considered the mandated factors and did not consider any improper factors, and held that the trial court did not abuse its discretion by electing not to close the hearings in question.A request to limit access may be made by any person affected by the release of the information or on the court’s own motion. In an unpublished opinion in , 1998 WL 34347957 (February 25, 1998), the Alaska Supreme Court addressed questions about sealing portions of the record to protect a juvenile in a civil lawsuit seeking damages for sexual abuse in which the minor was not a party.The Court reviewed various statutes and rules that the parties argued embodied a public policy in favor of sealing records where a minor's interest in non-disclosure is at risk. Any request by any person to allow access must be made in writing to the court and served on all parties to the case unless otherwise ordered.

The court may, by order, allow access to non-public information in a case or administrative record if the court finds that the requester’s interest in disclosure outweighs the potential harm to the person or interests being protected, including but not limited to: (1) risk of injury to individuals, (2) individual privacy rights and interests, (3) proprietary business information, (4) the deliberative process, or (5) public safety. The court shall also require service on other individuals or entities that could be affected by disclosure of the information.

The formation of public policy or the conduct of business by vote shall not be conducted in closed meeting.In 1993 the Legislature created a private right of action allowing prevailing citizens to collect court costs, damages, and attorneys' fees but deleted the fines and imprisonment penalties.The 1993 overhaul was significant, establishing procedures similar to those of the Federal Freedom of Information Act, and a presumption that all records are public.An amendment to the Open Meeting Act in 2009 provides that “all meetings of any committee or policy-making body of the legislature held for the purpose of discussing public business or taking any action within the authority…of the body are declared to be public meetings open to the public at all times…” § 10-15-2(A).The New Mexico Attorney General's office has published the Eighth Edition of the Open Meeting Act Compliance Guide.
