(Docket No. 59.) The parties request that the pre-litigation record be filed under seal because the records consist of, among other things, documents that contain protected health information and other confidential information. Local Rule 79-5(a) specifies that a sealing order may issue only upon a request that establishes that the document, or portions thereof, is privileged or protectable. The request must be narrowly tailored to seek sealing only of sealable material, and must conform with Civil L.R. 795(b) or (c). A review of the pre-ligation records shows that the parties' joint motion is narrowly tailored and complies with L.R. 79-5(b). Accordingly, the parties' Joint Motion to Seal Pre-Litigation Record is GRANTED.
