IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 10, 2010
IRWIN DOUGLAS, PLAINTIFF,
SACRAMENTO COUNTY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
This case is before the undersigned pursuant to Eastern District of California Local Rule 302(c)(21). See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). On July 30, 2010, defendants filed a "Notice of Request to Seal Documents" pursuant to Local Rule 141, seeking to file under seal a motion for summary judgment or, in the alternative, summary adjudication, and the documents in support thereof. Dckt. No. 38. However, because defendants' request to seal did not indicate why a redacted version of the motion could not be filed, on August 5, 2010, the undersigned issued an order directing defendants to file a redacted version of their motion for summary judgment on the publicly available docket not later than August 12, 2010. Dckt. No. 39. Defendants filed a redacted motion for summary judgment on August 6, 2010. Dckt. No. 40. Plaintiff has not filed any opposition to defendants' request to seal, as authorized by Local Rule 141(c).
Upon review of both the redacted and unredacted versions of defendants' motion for summary judgment, the undersigned finds that the unredacted version should be filed under seal because it contains personal, private information relating to plaintiff, including information pertaining to the criminal records that were previously sealed by the Superior Court for the County of Sacramento. Accordingly, defendants' request to seal, Dckt. No. 38, is granted, and the Clerk of Court is directed to file under seal the unredacted version of defendants' summary judgment motion and all documents in support thereof (including defendants' statement of undisputed material facts; the declaration of Terry Wilson, along with Exhibits A through F; the declaration of John R. Whitefleet, along with Exhibits G through J; the declaration of Robert Falk; the declaration of Robert Williams; and the declaration of Michael Ziegler). The documents shall remain sealed until otherwise ordered.
