42 U.S.C. § 5106a(b)(3)

The federal Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) allows, but does not require, a state to refuse to disclose identifying information concerning an individual who makes a report or complaint alleging suspected child abuse or neglect, except when a court orders disclosure after the court reviews the record in camera and finds reason to believe that the reporter knowingly made a false report.
