SPECIAL MASTER'S RECOMMENDATION THAT DISTRICT JUDGE WILKEN ISSUE AN ORDER WITHDRAWING SPECIAL MASTER'S IMPROVIDENTLY FILED "ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR RELIEF FROM SECTION 11 OF PROTECTIVE ORDER" (DOCKET #1521), AND ORDER
HON. CLAUDIA WILKEN JUDGE
On December 22, 2014, the Special Master submitted for filing and served on the parties his "Order Denying Motion for Relief from Section 11 of Protective Order, " docketed as Number 1521.
The Special Master submitted this Order for filing improvidently by failing to seek the parties' input, in advance, about whether any matter disclosed in the Order was entitled to be sealed. Because the Special Master now understands that some of the information in the Order might well be entitled to protection from public disclosure, he hereby RECOMMENDS that District Judge Wilken issue an ORDER WITHDRAWING SPECIAL MASTER'S IMPROVIDENTLY FILED "ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR RELIEF FROM SECTION 11 OF PROTECTIVE ORDER." (Dkt #1521).
If District Judge Wilken issues the recommended order, the Special Master will offer counsel an opportunity to identify (and justify) any portions of the improvidently issued earlier order that are entitled to be sealed. If appropriate showings are made, the Special Master will issue two versions of his earlier order, one for filing in the public record with appropriate redactions, and one for filing under seal (without redactions).
IT IS SO RECOMMENDED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
