This web-based service is used to advise the media that an application has been made to a Nova Scotia Court for a publication ban or other similar court order.
There are four steps to this process; 1. you must fill out the form below; 2. you must verify that the information is correct; 3. you must confirm your identity; 4. the notice is sent out automatically to the media.
If you would like to subscribe to receive notices of Publication Ban or Sealing Order applications, e-mail the Judiciary's DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS >>
For security purposes, this form will first send you an e-mail version of the completed form.
Please make sure the e-mail address you put into the "Applicant's E-mail Address" box below is one that you can access from this computer.
The e-mail will ask you to confirm your identity before sending the notice to the media.
Please read the top of the e-mail carefully and follow the instructions.
This form is only a way of notifying the media. It is not a substitute for the usual Rules involved in Interlocutory Applications.
Unless otherwise directed by the Court, a Notice of Application, Supporting Affidavit, and Draft order must be filed with the Court.
