Can information about my HIV status be kept confidential if I go to court?

If your HIV status is revealed in court, the information you disclose will be made part of the court record, which is a public document. But you may have your attorney ask the judge to “seal” the information in the case that would identify you as HIV-positive, and thus keep your HIV status private from the record. This applies in civil and criminal cases.
