Raig Chaquico v. David Freiberg et al
ORDER by Judge Maria-Elena James finding as moot 16 Administrative Motion to File Under Seal. (mejlc2S, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 8/8/2017)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
ORDER RE: ADMINISTRATIVE
MOTION TO FILE UNDER SEAL
Re: Dkt. No. 16
DAVID FREIBERG, et al.,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Case No. 17-cv-02423-MEJ
Plaintiff Craig Chaquico filed a Motion to Seal a 1993 Settlement Agreement under seal on
the ground that it had been designated confidential by the signing parties. Mot., Dkt. No. 16. The
Court found Plaintiff “fail[ed] to show any specific harm or prejudice will result if the 1993
Agreement is filed publicly.” Order at 3, Dkt. No. 20; see Civ. L.R. 79-5(d) (“Reference to a
stipulation or protective order that allows a party to designate certain documents as confidential is
not sufficient to establish that a document, or portions thereof, are sealable.”). The Court allowed
Plaintiff to “file an additional declaration to conform with Civil Local Rule 79-5.” Id. at 4.
Rather than filing a declaration identifying the specific harm that would result from the
public disclosure of the 1993 Settlement Agreement, Plaintiff filed an unredacted version of the
Agreement in the public docket. See Dkt. No. 22. Accordingly, the Court FINDS AS MOOT the
Motion to Seal.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: August 8, 2017
