[APG Public List] East Baton Rouge marriage licenses

I have recently heard that the East Baton Rouge Parish Clerk of Court has locked up the cabinet with the marriage license microfilm and is not allowing the public to access them.  They are claiming that a federal law prohibits the publication of social security numbers and addresses on the Internet.  They plan to scan the microfilm and block the prohibited information.  In the meantime, the public cannot access any of the marriage records, even though the SS# only started appearing on the form in the 1970s.  Their marriage records date back to 1840.

Is any other jurisdiction doing this?
