The judicially noticed documents include some documents which are redacted in part and other documents which are unredacted. Proponents' motion to seal The would seal unredacted copies of the redacted documents. redactions are premised on claims from the non-party No on 8 groups that the redacted portions contain privileged information. The court has reviewed the redacted documents and the unredacted counterparts and does not agree that each redaction is necessary to protect the nonparties' privileged information. Nevertheless, in light of the procedural posture from which the motion arises, the motion to seal, Doc #673, is GRANTED. IT IS SO ORDERED. VAUGHN R WALKER United States District Chief Judge 2
