(“GSI”) has indicated that it wishes to seal portions of the 18 19 June 27, 2013 hearing transcript under Section 5.2(b) of the Protective Order.1 The court reporter 20 has already sent the transcript to the parties, but has not filed the transcript on the public docket. 21 Within seven days of this order, GSI shall send its proposed redactions to the court for review and 22 approval. If GSI fails to narrowly tailor its request according to Civil Local Rule 79-5, the court 23 may reject the request to seal in its entirety and order the transcript published in its unredacted 24 25 form.

Accordingly, going forward, the parties 5 shall expressly indicate at any hearing if they wish to seal any of the information presented. They 6 shall identify all protected testimony at the time of the hearing so that the court reporter may note 7 8 9 those designations concurrently.
