Before a financial disclosure report can be released, a Form AO 10A, Request for Examination of Report Filed by Judicial Officer or Judicial Employee, must be completed. Each judge or employee whose report you request must be listed by name on the form.
The Form AO 10A may be obtained from the judiciary's website at www.uscourts.gov or from the Financial Disclosure Office.

Please note that section 105(b)(2)(A) of the Act requires that you provide your name, occupation, and address on the Form AO 10A. Section 105(b)(2)(B) requires that if you are obtaining a report at the request of, or on behalf of, another individual or an organization, you must specifically list that individual or organization in the appropriate block on the form. Section 105(b)(3)(C) requires you to sign the request form indicating that you are aware of the prohibitions on wrongful use as delineated on the form and in section 105(c)(1) of the Act. Failure to comply with these statutory requirements is cause to deny your request. It is helpful to provide a phone number and email address where you can be reached in case there is a question relating to your request.
