Paul Ceglia v. Mark Zuckerberg et al.
Civil Action No.: 1:10-CV-00569-RJA
Dear Judge Foschio,
After reviewing the Court's August 12, 2011 Order (Doc No. 107) (Order), it
appears that the Court may have misunderstood the nature of Items 2 and 4 in ruling on
the propriety of designating them as confidential. Specifically, the Order states,
First, Items 1-4 related to a signed agreement between Plaintiff and
Defendant Zuckerberg for software development and in connection with a
As the document was allegedly executed by
Zuckerberg, Plaintiff could not entertain a reasonable belief that it was a
confidential private document, particularly in light of the fact that a copy
of the executed agreement was attached by Plaintiff to the Complaint in
(Order at 5-6 (emphasis added).) Based on this language, it appears that Court may
have understood Items 2 and 4 to be the exact same as what “was attached by Plaintiff to
the Complaint in this action.” (Id.) However, Items 2 and 4 are different from what
Plaintiff attached to the Complaint.

Given the above, Plaintiff respectfully requests that the Court amend the Order as
it pertains to Items 2 and 4 so that the parties are required to continue to consider those
items confidential until Plaintiff has had an opportunity to be heard at the August 17, 2011
hearing. In the event the Court should deny this request, Plaintiff hereby gives notice that
it will move for a protective order as to Items 2 and 4 on grounds other than those already
covered by the Joint Stipulated Protective Order (Doc. No. 86.)
