INTRODUCTION Plaintiffs Oracle USA, Inc., Oracle International Corporation, Oracle Systems Corporation, Oracle EMEA Limited, and J.D. Edwards Europe Limited ("Oracle" or "Plaintiffs"), together with Defendants SAP AG, SAP America, Inc., and TomorrowNow, Inc. ("Defendants"), respectfully request an Order sealing (1) portions of the Oracle's Opposition to Defendants' FRCP 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6) Motion to Dismiss ("Oracle's Opposition"), (2) portions of the Declaration of Kevin Mandia in support of Oracle's Opposition to Defendants' FRCP 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6) Motion to Dismiss ("Mandia Declaration"), and (3) Exhibits D through T to the Declaration of Chad Russell in support of Oracle's Opposition to Defendants' FRCP 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6) Motion to Dismiss ("Russell Declaration"), which were lodged with the Court on October 29, 2008. This request is made pursuant to Civil Local Rules 7-11 and 795 and the Protective Order signed by Judge Martin Jenkins on June 6, 2007. This request is supported by the Parties' Stipulation Regarding Plaintiffs' Administrative Motion to Seal, filed concurrently with this motion. II. ARGUMENT Oracle requests that the documents listed in detail in the attached Declaration of Zachary J. Alinder ("Alinder Declaration") be filed under seal. Good cause exists for filing the referenced documents under seal, because they were designated by Defendants as either "Highly Confidential Information - Attorneys' Eyes Only," or "Confidential Information," pursuant to the parties' Protective Order. Pursuant to Civil Local Rule 79-5(d) and Paragraph 14 of the Protective Order, Oracle is obligated to lodge these documents with the Court with a request to file it under seal. Oracle's request is narrowly tailored, as required by Local Rule 79-5(a), and seeks to protect only those documents that contain Defendants' allegedly confidential information, until such time as Defendants may submit a declaration in accordance with Civil Local Rule 75-9(d) and the Court makes a final ruling as to the confidentiality of the relevant subject matter. Therefore, good cause supports this request and the documents referenced herein should 1 PLAINTIFFS' ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO FILE DOCUMENTS UNDER SEAL; DECLARATION IN SUPPORT THEREOF 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 appropriately be filed under seal. III. CONCLUSION For the foregoing reasons, Oracle respectfully requests that the Court order the filing of the documents listed in detail in the attached Alinder Declaration under seal. A Proposed Order is submitted with this motion. DATED: October 29, 2008 BINGHAM MCCUTCHEN LLP By: /s/ Zachary J. Alinder Zachary J.
