I am an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of California and in the Northern District of California. I am an associate in the law firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, counsel of record for Plaintiffs Kristin M. Perry, Sandra B. Stier, Paul T. Katami, and Jeffrey J. Zarrillo in the above-captioned matter. I make this declaration in support of Plaintiffs' Administrative Motion to Seal Documents Pursuant to Civil Local Rules 7-11 and 79-5(d). The information below is stated on personal knowledge and if called as a witness, I could and would testify competently thereto. 2. Plaintiffs will submit to the Clerk of the Court, in sealed envelopes, two copies of (1) Plaintiffs' Motion to Reopen Deposition of Ronald Prentice and (2) Ms. Justice Lazarus' Declaration in Support of Plaintiffs' Motion to Reopen Deposition of Ronald Prentice and supporting exhibits. 3. Plaintiffs have filed on the electronic docket a redacted copy of Plaintiffs' Motion to Reopen Deposition of Ronald Prentice. The redacted portion of these documents include references or descriptions of documents designated by Defendant-Intervenors as "Highly Confidential Attorneys' Eyes Only." 4. Plaintiffs have filed on the electronic docket a copy of Ms. Justice Lazarus' Declaration in Support of Plaintiffs' Motion to Reopen Deposition of Ronald Prentice which does not include supporting exhibits that were designated by Defendant-Intervenors as "Highly Confidential Attorneys' Eyes Only." 5. Exhibits C, D, F, and H were produced by Proponents between January 10 and 17, 2010, pursuant to the Court's order requiring the further production of documents, see Doc #372 at 5. 6. A stipulation could not be obtained in this matter because Civil Local Rule 79-5(a) prohibits the sealing of documents or information by agreement of the parties, and therefore the parties are unable to enter into such a stipulation. // // // // // 2 09-CV-2292 VRW DECLARATION OF REBECCA JUSTICE LAZARUS IN SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS' ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO SEAL DOCUMENTS PURSUANT TO CIVIL LOCAL RULES 7-11 AND 79-5(D) Case3:09-cv-02292-VRW Document483 Filed01/19/10 Page3 of 4 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP I declare, under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States, that these facts are true and correct and that this Declaration is executed this 19th day of January, 2010, at San Francisco, California. /s/ Rebecca Justice Lazarus Rebecca Justice Lazarus 3 09-CV-2292 VRW DECLARATION OF REBECCA JUSTICE LAZARUS IN SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS' ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO SEAL DOCUMENTS PURSUANT TO CIVIL LOCAL RULES 7-11 AND 79-5(D) Case3:09-cv-02292-VRW Document483 Filed01/19/10 Page4 of 4 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP ATTESTATION PURSUANT TO GENERAL ORDER NO. 45 Pursuant to General Order No. 45 of the Northern District of California, I attest that concurrence in the filing of the document has been obtained from each of the other signatories to this document. /s/ Ethan Dettmer Ethan Dettmer 4 09-CV-2292 VRW DECLARATION OF REBECCA JUSTICE LAZARUS IN SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS' ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO SEAL DOCUMENTS PURSUANT TO CIVIL LOCAL RULES 7-11 AND 79-5(D)
