UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA OAKLAND DIVISION
April 15, 2010
ISLAND VIEW RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT CENTER, ANNA L., THOMAS L., AND ANDREW L., PLAINTIFFS,
KAISER PERMANENTE, AND KAISER PERMANENTE TRADITIONAL PLAN FOR SMALL BUSINESS, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Saundra Brown Armstrong United States District Judge
ORDER TO SEAL PRE-LITIGATION [Docket No. 59] RECORD
Presently before the Court is the parties' Joint Motion to Seal Pre-Litigation Record.
(Docket No. 59.) The parties request that the pre-litigation record be filed under seal because the records consist of, among other things, documents that contain protected health information and other confidential information.
Local Rule 79-5(a) specifies that a sealing order may issue only upon a request that establishes that the document, or portions thereof, is privileged or protectable. The request must be narrowly tailored to seek sealing only of sealable material, and must conform with Civil L.R. 79-5(b) or (c). A review of the pre-ligation records shows that the parties' joint motion is narrowly tailored and complies with L.R. 79-5(b).
Accordingly, the parties' Joint Motion to Seal Pre-Litigation Record is GRANTED.
