DOJ now relies on paper for its most sensitive court documents, official says

Hickey said the takeaway for the court system is that sometimes the old-fashioned way of doing things is safer. He added that the paper-only system applies only to the most sensitive sealed documents as opposed to all of them.

“It’s a lesson, a fairly familiar adage, that going online is not always the best thing,” Hickey added. “Convenience is great, but security in any internet connected system is going to be different from what it would be on paper.”
