2C:52-19.  Order of superior court permitting inspection of records or release of information;  limitations
    Inspection of the files and records, or release of the information contained  therein, which are the subject of an order of expungement, or sealing under  prior law, may be permitted by the Superior Court upon motion for good cause  shown and compelling need based on specific facts. The motion or any order  granted pursuant thereto shall specify the person or persons to whom the  records and information are to be shown and the purpose for which they are to  be utilized.  Leave to inspect shall be granted by the court only in those  instances where the subject matter of the records of arrest or conviction is  the object of litigation or judicial proceedings.  Such records may not be  inspected or utilized in any subsequent civil or criminal proceeding for the  purposes of impeachment or otherwise but may be used for purposes of sentencing  on a subsequent offense after guilt has been established.
