United States District Court, N.D. California

September 25, 2019

v.
Facebook, Inc., et al., Defendant,

          ORDER RE: PENDING ADMINISTRATIVE MOTIONS TO FILE UNDER SEAL AND MOTION TO UNLOCK THE DECLARATION OF SHANE O’REILLY DKT. NOS. 127, 130, 132, 151, 154, 159, 161, 166, 175, 180, 184, 187, 190, 194, 198, 209, 213

          YVONNE GONZALEZ ROGERS UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT JUDGE.

         Currently pending before the Court are administrative motions to seal various documents filed in connection with the parties’ papers in support of and in opposition to Facebook’s Motion to Dismiss and Motion for Summary Judgment and the parties’ Daubert motions. (Dkt. Nos. 127, 130, 132, 151, 154, 159, 161, 175, 180, 184, 187, 190, 194, 198, 209, 213.) In addition, Facebook filed an Administrative Motion to Unlock Declaration of Shayne O'Reilly. (Dkt. No. 166.) The Court has reviewed the filings in connection with the pending motions thoroughly, and Orders as follows:

         1. With respect to the motions to seal at Docket Nos. 127, 130, and 132, submitted in connection with Facebook’s Motion to Dismiss on standing grounds, that motion to dismiss was withdrawn at the request of Facebook in favor of incorporating its arguments into the motion for summary judgment. (Dkt. No. 149.) Thus, the motion to seal is Denied As Moot and the documents filed provisionally under seal in connection with those motions are Stricken.

         2. The filings at Docket Nos. 209 and 213 are Joint Administrative Motions to Seal which narrowed the scope of the sealing sought in the motions filed in connection with the summary judgment and Daubert motions and withdrew the original motions. In light of this, the motions filed at Docket Nos. 151, 154, 159, 161, 175, 180, 184, 187, 190, 194, and 198 are Denied As Moot.

a. In light of the parties’ withdrawal of certain prior sealing requests in connection summary judgment, replacement versions of the following documents were filed at Docket No. 211:
• Facebook’s Motion for Summary Judgment;
• Exhibits 1, 2, 3, 8, 10, 18, 19 and 20 to the Declaration of Phillip E. Morton in Support of Facebook’s Motion for Summary Judgment;
• Exhibits A, B, M, N, O, S, V, AA, BB, CC, DD, EE and GG to the Declaration of Warren J. McCarty, III in Support of Windy City’s Opposition to Facebook’s Motion for Summary Judgment;
• Facebook’s Reply in Support of Motion for Summary Judgment; and
• Exhibit 24 to the Declaration of Phillip E. Morton in Support of Facebook’s Reply in Support of Motion for Summary Judgment.
b. In light of the parties’ withdrawal of certain prior sealing requests in connection the Daubert motions, replacement versions of the following documents were filed at Docket No. 212:
• Exhibit 13 to the Declaration of Phillip E. Morton in support of Facebook’s opening brief re: Facebook’s Daubert;
• Windy City’s Daubert, opening brief (Facebook’s opposing brief and Windy City’s reply brief were filed publicly);
• Exhibit B to the Declaration of Warren J. McCarty, III in support of Windy City’s opening brief re: Windy City’s Daubert;
• Exhibit C to the Declaration of Warren J. McCarty, III in support of Windy City’s opening brief re: Windy City’s Daubert; and
• Exhibit J to the Declaration of Warren J. McCarty, III in support of Windy City’s opening brief re: Windy City’s Daubert.

         3. With respect to the motion to unlock the declaration of Shane O’Reilly (Dkt. No. 166), the motion indicates that the declaration at Dkt. No. 159 was filed inadvertently in connection with Facebook’s motion for summary judgment but was intended to support Facebook’s motion to seal at Dkt. No. 159. Facebook requested that the documents be unlocked, removed from the summary judgment papers and filed with the administrative motion to seal. As the motion to seal has been withdrawn, the motion to unlock is Denied As Moot.

         4. The Joint Administrative Motion to File Under Seal Summary Judgment Briefing and Associated Documents (Dkt. No. 209) is Granted. The Court finds that the parties have offered compelling reasons to seal the documents or portions of documents set forth below:
