Bell v. Management & Training Corporation et al
ORDER granting 38 Motion to Seal. Signed by Honorable David C. Bramlette, III on October 11, 2017. (lda)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI
CIVIL ACTION NO. 5:16-cv-39-DCB-MTP
MANAGEMENT & TRAINING CORPORATION
and JOHN AND JANE DOES 1-100
PROPOSED ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO SEAL EXHIBITS
This matter comes before the Court on plaintiff Jonsha Bell’s Motion to Seal . In the
motion, Bell requests that the Court permit him to file under seal exhibits 1-2 of his response to
defendant Management & Training Corporation’s (“MTC”) motion for summary judgment. Bell
represents that MTC does not oppose this request.
Local Uniform Civil Rule 79(b) states that “[a]ny order sealing a document must include
particularized findings demonstrating that sealing is supported by clear and compelling reasons
and is narrowly tailored to serve those reasons.” L. U. Civ. R. 79(b). This Court has previously
held that “[t]o determine whether to allow the sealing of a requested document, ‘the court must
balance the public’s common law right of access against the interests favoring nondisclosure.’”
Taking this into consideration, the Court finds that the sensitive nature of these
documents results in the interest of nondisclosure outweighing the public’s right of access.
Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that Bell’s Motion to Seal  is GRANTED.
These documents shall be filed and remain under seal until further order of the Court.
SO ORDERED, the 11th day of October
