H.W., MINOR, BY AND THROUGH GUARDIAN AD LITEM HEIDI NELSON; AND M.K., MINOR, BY AND THROUGH GUARDIAN AD LITEM ROBERT KOELLING, PLAINTIFFS,
EASTERN SIERRA UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
This court has considered the Parties' Proposed Order Sealing Plaintiffs' motion for default judgment against defendant Carlisle and attached exhibits. The motion and all exhibits except Exhibit 4 concern allegations of sexual molestations by defendant Carlisle against two plaintiffs who are currently minors. The motion indicates that defendant Carlisle has been convicted criminally of sexual violations involving the minors. The parties have therefore shown compelling reasons for sealing all documents except Exhibit 4 which is a declaration by attorney Singleton regarding attorneys' fees and costs. See Pintos v. Pacific Creditors Ass'n., 605 F.3d 665, 678 (9th Cir. 2010) and Phillips v. General Motors Corp., 307 F.3d 1206, 1210 (9th Cir. 2002).
GOOD CAUSE APPEARING, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The parties' stipulated request to seal documents is GRANTED as modified herein.
2. Plaintiffs' motion for entry of default judgment, including Exhibits 1, 2, and 3 only, are permanently sealed from public view, available only to court personnel, plaintiffs and their attorneys, and appearing defendants Eastern Sierra Unified School District, Reed, and Clark, and their attorneys.
