March 27, 2012
SHARED MEMORY GRAPHICS LLC, PLAINTIFF.
APPLE INC., ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Jacqueline Scott Corley United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER GRANTING F&B LLP'S MOTION TO RECONSIDER (Dkt. No. 478)
United States District Court Northern District of California Now pending before the Court is F&B LLP‟s motion to reconsider (Dkt. No. 478) the Order permitting Plaintiff to file an administrative motion under seal. (Dkt. No. 473.) The 20 Court issued an order (Dkt. No. 479) directing Plaintiff to show cause as to why Plaintiff‟s 21 motions and corresponding declarations (Dkt. Nos. 470, 474, 475, 476, 477) should remain 22 filed under seal given F&B LLP‟s objection. See Foltz v. State Farm Mut. Auto Ins. Co., 331 23 F.3d 1122, 1134 (9th Cir. 2003) (quoting Nixon v. Warner Communications, 435 U.S. 589, 24 597 (1978)) (stating that there is "a federal common law right "to inspect and copy public 25 records and documents‟" filed with the Court). Under Civil Local Rule 79-5(a), material may 26 be sealed "only upon a request that establishes that the document, or portions thereof, is 27 privileged or protectable as a trade secret or otherwise entitled to protection under the law." 28
Having reviewed Plaintiff‟s response and proposed redactions (Dkt. No. 80), the Court concludes that Plaintiff has not met this standard. The Court therefore GRANTS F&B LLP‟s 2 motion for reconsideration and orders that Dkt. Nos. 470, 474, 475, 476, 477 shall be publicly 3 filed in their entirety. 4 5
IT IS SO ORDERED.
