See Docket No. 81 (motion); Docket No. 88 (order). The Court deferred ruling 15 with respect to Exhibits B and I attached to the Weil reply declaration, as well as Exhibit 1 to the 16 Pixley reply declaration. AllCells has submitted a declaration from Mr. Tong to support its claim 17 of confidentiality with respect to these exhibits. See Docket No. 97 (Tong declaration). 18 The Court grants the motion to seal Exhibit I. 19 As for Exhibits B and 1, while the Court is skeptical that the documents contain 20 confidential information in need of sealing, the Court shall, out of an abundance of caution, grant 21 the motion to file under seal without prejudice. 22 23 As with its prior orders, the Court notes that, in granting the motion to file under seal, it is not making any ruling as to whether any information is a trade secret. 24 This order disposes of Docket No. 81. 25 IT IS SO ORDERED. 26 27 28 Dated: March 28, 2017 ______________________________________ EDWARD M. CHEN United States District Judge
