TERRY PASKAL, PLAINTIFFS,
INDALEX, INC.; ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Howard R. Lloyd United States Magistrate Judge
** E-filed June 6, 2012 **
NOT FOR CITATION
ORDER RE: PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO FILE UNDER SEAL [Re: Docket No. 20]
Plaintiff Terry Paskal moves to file under seal and/or expunge from the record certain 17 previously filed exhibits that contain sensitive personal information. Dkt. No. 20. While plaintiff 18 styles his request as one to seal the relevant documents, he requests that they be removed from the 19 record entirely, i.e., expunged. Having considered plaintiff's motion to file under seal, and good 20 cause appearing, IT IS ORDERED THAT the Clerk shall expunge the following documents or 21 portions of documents from the public docket: (1) Exhibit B (Part 2) to the Kearnaghan Declaration 22 in support of Defendants' Opposition to Motion to Remand (Dkt. No. 12, Exh. 5); and (2) the 23 Kennedy Declaration in support of the Notice of Removal and Exhibits 4 and 5 thereto (Dkt. No, 1, 24 pp. 6-7; Dkt. No. 1, Exh. 1, pp. 18-42). 25
Plaintiff also moves to seal the administrative motion to seal all documents filed in support 26 of that motion ("Motion to seal the motion to seal"). Plaintiff also seeks to file the motion to seal the 27 motion to seal under seal, and requests that the court seal a letter plaintiff's counsel recently mailed 28 to the court, which was filed on the docket as Dkt. No. 19. The court concludes that most of these documents do not warrant a sealing order, but that two of them do. Accordingly, the following 2 documents shall be filed under seal: (1) the Declaration of David Imai in support of Administrative 3 Motion to Seal, and Exhibits A-E thereto; and (2) the Declaration of David Imai in support of the 4 Administrative Motion to File Administrative Motion to Seal Under Seal. 5
Plaintiff shall e-file unsealed, unredacted versions of the remaining papers, including both 6 motions to seal, within seven calendar days from the date of this order. 7
IT IS SO ORDERED.
