1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 7 AVAGO TECHNOLOGIES GENERAL IP 8 (SINGAPORE) PTE LTD.,, Plaintiff, 9 10 11 12 For the Northern District of California United States District Court Case No. 15-cv-04525-EMC v. ASUSTEK COMPUTER, INC., et al., ORDER GRANTING IN PART AND DEFERRING IN PART DEFENDANTS’ ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO FILE DOCUMENTS UNDER SEAL Docket No. 256 Defendants. 13 14 ASUS has moved to file under seal certain documents it has submitted in support of its 15 motion for partial summary judgment. The Court has reviewed the supporting declarations 16 submitted from ASUS (Docket No. 256-1), Avago (Docket No. 268), and third parties (Docket 17 Nos. 265, 266-1, and 266-3). 18 Based on those declarations, the Court hereby GRANTS the motion to file under seal as to 19 all documents (or portions thereof) identified in ASUS’s proposed order (Docket No. 256-2), 20 except for Exhibits 12 and 18. 21 As to Exhibit 18, it appears that the third party is not claiming confidentiality, but it is not 22 entirely clear. As to Exhibit 12, no declaration has been received from the third party, and it is not 23 even clear whether any claim of confidentiality is being made in the first place (e.g., nothing 24 appears to have been redacted). 25 Out of an abundance of caution, the Court DEFERS ruling on the motion to seal Exhibits 26 12 and 18. As to these exhibits, the Court orders ASUS to immediately contact those third parties 27 and inform those third parties that the exhibits shall be publicly filed unless, within a week of the 28 date of this order, the third parties submit declarations justifying a filing under seal. ASUS shall 1 immediately file a declaration certifying that it has given the notice required herein. 2 3 IT IS SO ORDERED. 4 5 6 7 Dated: October 18, 2016 ______________________________________ EDWARD M.
