UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 17-cv-04600-JCS
SEVEN NETWORKS, LLC,
ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO FILE
Re: Dkt. No. 3
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Plaintiff Google Inc. moves to seal portions of its complaint on the basis that Google
―understands Defendant SEVEN Networks LLC (―SEVEN‖) may consider [the information at
issue] confidential.‖ Admin. Mot. (dkt. 3). Google does not itself ―maintain a claim of
confidentiality over any portion of the Complaint.‖ Id.
Although not directly applicable by its terms, the Court finds that Civil Local Rule 79-5(e)
—which governs sealing motions related to documents designated as confidential under a
protective order—provides an appropriate general framework to resolve the present motion.
Accordingly, Google is ordered to serve a copy of this order on SEVEN by any means reasonably
calculated to provide actual notice no later than August 23, 2017, and to file proof of service.
SEVEN is ordered to file a declaration no later than September 6, 2017 setting forth ―compelling
reasons‖ why some or all of the material at issue should be filed under seal. See Kamakana v. City
& County of Honolulu, 447 F.3d 1172, 1178–79 (9th Cir. 2008); Civ. L.R. 79-5(d)(1)(A).
Alternatively, SEVEN may file notice that it does not oppose filing the material at issue in the
IT IS SO ORDERED.
