Under NY False Claims Act, whistleblowers can bring "qui tam" actions for tax, and other types of fraud on the government. These whistleblower cases often proceed under the caption Anon. v. Anon. and under seal. However, applicable rules require the Supreme Court to order the sealing: unlike the Federal system, the pleadings are not sealed automatically.
This is a form of affidavit supporting the sealing order and Anon v. Anon caption acceptable in NY County. Please also see the corresponding draft order
Note the application for the sealing order for the whistleblower action is on application, not on motion though effected through the "ex parte" clerk's office in NY County at 300 Center Street.
