NO. 2:16-0414 WBS AC ORDER RE: REQUEST TO SEAL Plaintiffs, 14 15 16 17 18 v. ST. ANTON BUILDING, LP; ST. ANTON MULTIFAMILY MANAGEMENT, INC.; and DOES 1 through 25, inclusive; Defendants. 19 20 21 ----oo0oo---Defendants St. Anton Building, LP and St. Anton 22 Multifamily Management, Inc. request that the court seal their 23 disclosure of expert witnesses (Docket No. 48), noting that page 24 38 of that document states plaintiff John Kerr’s full date of 25 birth, which Local Rule 140(a)(iv) required them to redact. 26 It would be inappropriate to seal the entire 48 pages 27 of materials in perpetuity simply because plaintiff’s birthdate 28 is contained on one line of one of those pages. 1 Since defendant 1 was obviously aware that plaintiff’s birthdate was contained in 2 the document, it was defendant’s obligation to redact that line 3 before filing the medical record containing plaintiff’s 4 birthdate. 5 in order to remedy the problem created thereby, the clerk of 6 court is ordered to redact plaintiff Kerr’s date of birth from 7 page 38 of defendants’ disclosure of expert witnesses (Docket No. 8 48). Defendants’ request to seal is otherwise denied. 9 10 Because defendant failed in its obligation to do so, IT IS SO ORDERED.
