Weston 11 in Support of Class Certification, contain copies and discussions of a number of documents 12 designated as “Confidential” by Defendant and/or third parties. 13 Under the Protective Order, the parties have agreed to file such information under seal. 14 See Protective Order, ¶ 12.Accordingly, Plaintiffs move to file these documents under seal 15 pursuant to the Protective Order and Local Rule 79.2. Because of the sensitive nature of this 16 information, good cause exists to approve Plaintiffs’ application to file under seal. See, e.g., 17 Kamakana v.
