Claudia Wilken 2, 4th Floor June 9, 2014 Defendants. 26 27 28 NCAA'S ADMIN. MOT. TO FILE UNDER SEAL CASE NO. 09-CV-3329-CW 1 Pursuant to Civil Local Rules 7-11 and 79-5, the National Collegiate Athletic Association 2 (“NCAA”) respectfully submits this Administrative Motion to File Under Seal Deposition 3 Testimony Designated as Confidential. In particular, the NCAA moves to seal excerpts of the 4 deposition testimony of Plaintiff William (“Bill”) Russell, submitted as Exhibit V of Defendant 5 NCAA’s Deposition Designations. In determining whether compelling reasons exist to seal, the 6 Court shall consider “all relevant factors,” including the “‘public interest in understanding the 7 judicial process and whether disclosure of the material could result in improper use of the material 8 for scandalous or libelous purposes or infringement upon trade secrets.’” Hagestad v. Tragesser, 9 49 F.3d 1430, 1434 (9th Cir. 1995) (quoting EEOC v. Erection Co., 900 F.2d 168, 170 (9th Cir. 10 1990)). 11 Plaintiffs contend that the redacted portions of Mr. Russell’s deposition transcript contain 12 confidential financial terms that would undermine Mr. Russell’s ability to negotiate future licenses 13 for the use of his name, image, and likeness. The Court has previously held that the specific dollar 14 amounts mentioned on pages 66 and 68-71 of Mr. Russell’s deposition transcript should remain 15 under seal. See Dkt. No. 989 at 14:23-25. The NCAA has also redacted similar dollar amounts 16 mentioned on pages 84, 88, 93, 95, 96, and 106 of the deposition transcript in an abundance of 17 caution. 18 19 DATED: June 23, 2014 Respectfully submitted, 20 MUNGER, TOLLES & OLSON LLP 21 22 23 24 25 By: /s/ Jeslyn A.
