SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS CO., LTD., A Korean business entity; SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS AMERICA, INC., a New York corporation; SAMSUNG TELECOMMUNICATIONS AMERICA, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company., Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK APPLE’S UNOPPOSED ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO FILE DOCUMENTS UNDER SEAL Defendants. 25 26 27 28 APPLE’S UNOPPOSED ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO FILE DOCUMENTS UNDER SEAL CASE NO. 11-CV-01846-LHK sf-3063579 1 2 In accordance with Civil L.R. 7-11 and 79-5, and General Order No. 62, Apple Inc. (“Apple”) moves this Court for an order to seal the following documents: 3 1. Apple’s Motion for a Protective Order (“Motion”); 4 2. Declaration of Michael A. Jacobs in Support of Apple’s Motion for a Protective 5 Order and Motion to Shorten Time (“Jacobs Declaration”) and its exhibits; 6 3. Apple’s [Proposed] Order Granting Its Motion for a Protective Order; 7 4. Apple’s Motion to Shorten Time for Briefing and Hearing on Apple’s Motion for a 8 9 10 11 Protective Order; and 5. Apple’s [Proposed] Order Granting Apple’s Motion to Shorten Time for Briefing and Hearing on Apple’s Motion for a Protective Order. Apple has established good cause to permit the sealing of these materials. First, the above 12 Items 1-5 all discuss or contain references to matters both parties agree are unrelated to the 13 parties’ substantive disputes in this case and are matters of private concern about the manner in 14 which discovery is and will be conducted. These matters are described in the Motion and Jacobs 15 Declaration, above. Further, Items 1 and 2 contain discussions or references to Apple 16 confidential information. As described in the Declaration of Erica Tierney in Support of Apple’s 17 Administrative Motion to File Documents Under Seal (the “Sealing Declaration”), filed herewith, 18 the above Apple confidential information relates to, among other things, Apple’s confidential 19 design trade secrets, product development, and business practices. (Sealing Declaration ¶¶ 4-8.) 20 It is Apple’s policy and practice not to disclose such information because it is confidential to 21 Apple. (Id. ¶ 9.) This information is indicative of the way in which Apple manages its business 22 affairs and conducts product development, and thus the information can be used by competitors to 23 Apple’s disadvantage. (Id.) The requested relief is necessary and narrowly tailored to protect the 24 confidentiality of the information contained in the above materials. 25 26 27 28 APPLE’S UNOPPOSED ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO FILE DOCUMENTS UNDER SEAL CASE NO. 11-CV-01846-LHK sf-3063579 1 1 Samsung has indicated that it does not oppose this motion.
