Jamali v. Marin, et al
ORDER denying 53 Motion to Seal, Expunge or Destroy all Records Related to this Case. Signed by Judge Frederick J Martone on 1/29/13. (MAP)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA
JD Marin, et al.,
The court has before it plaintiff’s motion to seal, expunge or destroy all records related
to this case (doc. 53). He explains only that he wishes to put the contents of this case behind
him and out of the public record. Plaintiff’s request to seal the case records has already been
rejected by this court (doc. 51).
There is “a strong presumption in favor of access” to information filed with a court.
Kamakana v. City & County of Honolulu, 447 F.3d 1172, 1178 (9th Cir. 2006) (citing Nixon
v. Warner Commc’ns, Inc., 435 U.S. 589, 597 & n.7 (1978)). To overcome this presumption,
a party seeking to seal a judicial record must demonstrate “compelling reasons.” Id. Plaintiff
has failed to satisfy this heavy burden.
IT IS ORDERED DENYING plaintiff’s motion to seal, expunge or destroy all
records related to this case (doc. 53).
DATED this 29th day of January, 2013.
