ORDER DENYING MOTION TO SEAL 9 10 BANK OF AMERICA, N.A., et al., Defendants. United States District Court Northern District of California 11 12 13 The Court DENIES the plaintiffs' Administrative Motion to File Under Seal (Docket No. 14 106) without prejudice. Pursuant to Local Rule 79-5(e), the plaintiffs seek to file under seal 15 documents designated as confidential by the defendants, in connection with their opposition to the 16 defendants' motion to dismiss. However, the defendants have not filed a responsive declaration 17 establishing that all of the designated material is sealable, as required by the local rules. 18 Accordingly, the Court finds that the parties have not presented "compelling reasons supported by 19 specific factual findings" to justify filing the materials at issue under seal. Kamakana v. City and 20 Cnty. of Honolulu, 447 F.3d 1172, 1178-80 (9th Cir. 2006) (internal quotations and citations 21 omitted). 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 The motions are denied without prejudice. If the parties wish to refile, they must do so on or before May 30, 2014. IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: May 23, 2014 ______________________________________ VINCE CHHABRIA United States District Judge
