Mot., Dkt. No. 16. The 15 Court found Plaintiff “fail[ed] to show any specific harm or prejudice will result if the 1993 16 Agreement is filed publicly.” Order at 3, Dkt. No. 20; see Civ. L.R. 79-5(d) (“Reference to a 17 stipulation or protective order that allows a party to designate certain documents as confidential is 18 not sufficient to establish that a document, or portions thereof, are sealable.”). The Court allowed 19 Plaintiff to “file an additional declaration to conform with Civil Local Rule 79-5.” Id. at 4. 20 Rather than filing a declaration identifying the specific harm that would result from the 21 public disclosure of the 1993 Settlement Agreement, Plaintiff filed an unredacted version of the 22 Agreement in the public docket. See Dkt. No. 22. Accordingly, the Court FINDS AS MOOT the 23 Motion to Seal. 24 25 26 27 28 IT IS SO ORDERED.
