Some prison records can be sealed
    BOISE, Idaho (AP)— The Idaho Department of Correction and attorneys representing inmates at the Idaho State Correctional Institution have quietly reached an agreement that could permanently hide from public view nearly every record connected to the medical care provided at the prison.
    The protective order was approved by U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill on Friday in a 32-year-old lawsuit over substandard care and other civil rights violations at ISCI.  The order allows the state or the inmates’ attorneys to designate any record confidential if they think it’s needed to protect trade secrets, medical privacy, or for security reasons. They may even designate a document as confidential if they think the public release would be “unduly detrimental” to the interests of third parties.
    IDOC Director Brent Reinke was not immediately available for comment.
