On November 20, 2020, Governor Murphy signed Daniel's Law (P.L. 2020, c.125) into law. Daniel’s Law was enacted in response to the tragic death of Daniel Anderl, the son of Judge Esther Salas and Mark Anderl. The law prohibits disclosure of the residential addresses of certain persons covered by the law (“Covered Persons”) on websites controlled by state, county, and local government agencies. The community of Covered Persons includes former, active, and retired judicial officers, prosecutors, and members of law enforcement and their immediate family members residing in the same household.
Individuals covered under the law may register through the Daniel's Law Portal, (click on the blue side) which was recently established by the Office of Information Privacy, an agency created within the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs to carry out the mandate of Daniel’s Law.
With respect to Internet postings other than those on New Jersey state, county, and municipal government websites, an authorized person, as defined by law, seeking to prohibit the disclosure of the home address or unpublished home telephone number of any covered person shall provide written notice to the entity or person advising that they are an authorized person and that they are requesting that the entity or person cease the disclosure of the information and remove the protected information from the Internet or where it is otherwise made available. See, N.J.S.A. 2C:20-31.1(c) and N.J.S.A. 56:8-166.1(a)(2).
