1 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 2 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 3 4 5 6 RICHTEK TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION, Plaintiff, 7 8 9 ORDER RE MOTION TO FILE UNDER SEAL v. UPI SEMICONDUCTOR CORPORATION, et al., Defendants. / 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 12 No. C 09-05659 WHA Richtek seeks permission to file sixteen items under seal, including full deposition 13 transcripts (Dkt. No. 293). The motion cannot be granted at this time. First, Richtek did not 14 submit a proposed order as required by Civil Local Rule 79-5(b)(2). Second, the request is not 15 narrowly drawn to include only sealable material (see Dkt. No. 118). Additionally, Richtek’s 16 motion described the items in question without identifying them by exhibit number, leaving the 17 Court to guess where in Richtek’s voluminous submissions they might be found. 18 Richtek may attempt to cure these defects by NOON ON APRIL 28, 2011. Because counsel 19 dispute which party is responsible for narrowing overbroad sealing requests, counsel are 20 reminded that the party designating material as confidential must do so narrowly. That party must 21 either withdraw its confidentiality designation or submit a supporting affidavit when such 22 material becomes the subject of a motion to file under seal. Over-designation will result in 23 wholesale denial of sealing requests. Counsel must cooperate, as this will be their only 24 opportunity to cure the defects of Richtek’s motion. 25 IT IS SO ORDERED. 26 27 28 Dated: April 25, 2011. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
