UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
SEAN L. GILBERT, et al.,
Case No. 13-cv-01171-VC
ORDER DENYING MOTION TO SEAL
BANK OF AMERICA, N.A., et al.,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
The Court DENIES the plaintiffs' Administrative Motion to File Under Seal (Docket No.
106) without prejudice. Pursuant to Local Rule 79-5(e), the plaintiffs seek to file under seal
documents designated as confidential by the defendants, in connection with their opposition to the
defendants' motion to dismiss. However, the defendants have not filed a responsive declaration
establishing that all of the designated material is sealable, as required by the local rules.
Accordingly, the Court finds that the parties have not presented "compelling reasons supported by
specific factual findings" to justify filing the materials at issue under seal. Kamakana v. City and
Cnty. of Honolulu, 447 F.3d 1172, 1178-80 (9th Cir. 2006) (internal quotations and citations
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
