A public body, or officer, employee or agent of a public body, may enter into a settlement or compromise that requires the terms or conditions to be confidential if federal law requires terms or conditions of that settlement or compromise to be confidential. Only terms and conditions that are required to be confidential under federal law may be confidential in the settlement or compromise.
A court may order that the terms or conditions of a settlement or compromise that reveal the identity of a person be confidential if:
The person whose identity is revealed is a victim of sexual abuse or is under 18 years of age; and
The court determines, by written findings, that the specific privacy interests of the person outweigh the public’s interest in the terms or conditions.
