Curry v. Settlemires et al
ORDER denying 19 Motion to File Exhibits Under Seal or in the Alternative Submit Exhibits G through I to Petitioners Response to Motion to Dismiss directly to Judges Chambers. Signed by Magistrate Judge Jane M. Virden on 11/17/20. (bfg)
Case: 3:19-cv-00251-SA-JMV Doc #: 20 Filed: 11/17/20 1 of 1 PageID #: 1250
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
WILLIE EARL CURRY
CIVIL ACTION NO. 3:19-cv-00251-SA-JMV
ROGER SETTLEMIRES et al.
This matter is before the court on the motion of the claimant, Willie Earl Curry, to file
under seal certain exhibits to his response to the respondents’ motion to dismiss. Doc. #19. Having
considered the motion and reviewed the docket in this case, the court finds that the motion is not
well taken and should be denied as, among other reasons, it seeks to seal proposed exhibits (or
submit them in camera) when they are already on the public docket as a result of prior filings in
this case, and no motion to seal or redact those filings has been made.
Consequently, sealing the documents, even if the motion otherwise justified doing so in
accordance with applicable law, would be futile.
Therefore, the motion to seal is hereby denied without prejudice.
SO ORDERED, this November 17, 2020.
