MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
FORT MYERS DIVISION
DONELL L. TILLMAN, individually
and on behalf of all others similarly
Case No: 2:16-cv-313-FtM-99CM
ALLY FINANCIAL INC.,
This matter comes before the Court upon review of Defendant’s Unopposed
Motion to Seal Portions of Ally Financial Inc.’s Response to Plaintiff’s Motion for
Summary Judgment (Doc. 180) filed on December 4, 2017. Defendant seeks to file
under seal its response to Plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment because the
response refers to and discusses other documents filed under seal.
Plaintiff does not oppose the requested relief.
Doc. 180 at 3.
Id. at 7.
Pursuant to Local Rule 1.09(a),
[u]nless filing under seal is authorized by statute, rule, or order, a party
seeking to file under seal any paper or other matter in any civil case
shall file and serve a motion, the title of which includes the words
“Motion to Seal” and which includes (i) an identification and description
of each proposed for sealing; (ii) the reason that filing each item is
necessary; (iii) the reason that sealing each item is necessary; (iv) the
reason that a means other than sealing is unavailable or unsatisfactory
to preserve the interest advanced by the movant in support of the seal;
(v) a statement of the proposed duration of the seal; and (vi) a
memorandum of legal authority supporting the seal. The movant shall
not file or otherwise tender to the Clerk any item proposed for sealing
unless the Court has granted the motion required by this section.
M.D. Fla. Rule 1.09(a).
Upon review, the Court finds that Defendant has sufficiently identified and
described the document proposed for sealing and sufficiently explained that filing the
document under seal is necessary.
ACCORDINGLY, it is hereby
Defendant’s Unopposed Motion to Seal Portions of Ally Financial Inc.’s
Response to Plaintiff’s Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. 180) is GRANTED.
Defendant shall have up to and including December 11, 2017 to file under seal its
response to Plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment.
