Teresa Duncan v. the Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Company

January 29, 2013

TERESA DUNCAN,
PLAINTIFF,
v.
THE HARTFORD LIFE AND ACCIDENT INSURANCE COMPANY, A CORPORATION; LORILLARD TOBACCO COMPANY,
DEFENDANTS



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. Senior United States District Judge

ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S REQUEST TO SEAL DOCUMENTS AND RELATED COUNTERCLAIM

On January 28, 2013, Plaintiff submitted a Second Request to Seal Documents, in which she seeks to file under seal "Plaintiff's Exhibit 3[,]" which consists of "excerpts from Defendant Lorillard Tobacco Company's employee benefit plan SPDs." (Pl.'s Notice of Req. to Seal, 1:22-24, ECF No. 109.)

Plaintiff's sealing request is premised upon the incorrect legal standard and is therefore denied. See Pintos v. Pac. Creditors Ass'n, 605 F.3d 665, 677 (9th Cir. 2010) ("Two standards generally govern motions to seal documents[.]"); Kamakana v. City & Cnty. of Honolulu, 447 F.3d 1172, 1180 (9th Cir. 2006) ("[J]udicial records attached to dispositive motions [are treated] differently from records attached to non-dispositive motions. Those who seek to maintain the secrecy of documents attached to dispositive motions must meet the high threshold of showing that "compelling reasons" support secrecy.)
