Crist v. Fareri et al
ORDER granting 56 defendants' Motion for Protective Order. See attached order. Signed by Judge Donna F. Martinez on 9/19/11. (Constantine, A.)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF CONNECTICUT
ARIS G. CRIS, AIA,
JOHN J. FARERI, et al.,
CASE NO. 3:10CV1926(RNC)
The defendants' motion for protective order (doc. #56) is
granted absent objection or response of any kind with the following
In order to have any part(s) of a document filed
under seal, a party must (1) file a public version of the document
that does not contain the part(s) in question and (2) make a motion
in accordance with District of Connecticut Local Civil Rule 5(e)
that specifies the part(s) to be kept under seal and, with respect
to each part, makes a particularized showing of good cause for
Hartford Courant Co. v. Pellegrino, 380 F.3d 83, 95-96 (2d Cir.
2004) (judicial records may be sealed only when and to the extent
necessary to preserve higher values).
This requires a careful
review of each part of a document a party wishes to file under seal
to ensure that the requested sealing order is no broader than
See United States v. Amodeo, 71 F.3d 1044, 1050-51 (2d
Agreement of the parties to a proposed sealing order
is not a sufficient basis for granting such an order.
Moreover, the court's assent to the parties' request for a
protective order to govern the disclosure and use of assertedly
confidential information does not mean that courtroom proceedings
will be closed to members of the public. Courtroom proceedings are
presumptively open to the public, and no closure order will be
entered in this case except on a specific written request of a
party supported by a showing of sufficient cause.
Dated at Hartford, Connecticut this 19th day of September,
Donna F. Martinez
United States Magistrate Judge
