1 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 2 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 3 4 5 DELPHINE ALLEN, et al., 6 Plaintiffs, 7 8 MASTER CASE FILE NO. C00-4599 TEH ORDER OF REFERRAL RE: PLAINTIFFS’ MOTION TO FILE UNDER SEAL v. CITY OF OAKLAND, et al., 9 Defendants. 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 On October 4, 2012, Plaintiffs filed a motion to file under seal portions of their motion 12 to appoint a receiver and supporting exhibits. It appears from the Court’s comparison of the 13 redacted and unredacted versions of Plaintiffs’ motion to appoint a receiver1 that Plaintiffs’ 14 request to file documents under seal does not meet the narrow requirements of Civil Local 15 Rule 79-5(a). The parties are reminded that documents identified by a party as “confidential” 16 and produced pursuant to a protective order are not necessarily entitled to sealing from the 17 public. 18 Plaintiffs’ motion to file under seal (Docket No. 751) is HEREBY REFERRED to 19 Magistrate Judge Nathanael M. Cousins for resolution. Plaintiffs need not provide additional 20 chambers copies of the documents in question; this Court will make its chambers copies of 21 the redacted and unredacted filings available to Judge Cousins. 22 23 IT IS SO ORDERED. 24 25 Dated: 10/11/12 THELTON E. HENDERSON, JUDGE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 26 27 28 1 This comparison was necessary because Plaintiffs’ motion to file under seal failed to identify proposed redactions with specificity.
