Allstate Fire and Casualty Insurance Company v. Matteson et al
ORDER granting 14 Motion to File Under Seal with exception. Signed by Magistrate Judge Timothy J. Cavan on 3/29/2017. (SEE ORDER FOR EXCEPTION) (JDR)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF MONTANA
ALLSTATE FIRE AND CASUALTY
KRISTIE MATTESON, et al.,
Before the Court is Plaintiff/Counter-defendant Allstate Fire and Casualty
Insurance Company’s (“Allstate”) Unopposed Motion to Seal Pages 1 and 2 of
Complaint for Interpleader. (Doc. 14.) Allstate indicates that the purpose of the
motion is to ensure that the Complaint for Interpleader (Doc. 9), originally filed in
Montana state court, complies with Fed. R. Civ. P. 5.2(a).
The Court agrees that the document is not in compliance with Rule 5.2(a).
However, the Clerk of Court has no procedure in place for filing only a portion of a
document under seal, as requested by the parties here. Accordingly,
IT IS ORDERED that Allstate’s motion is GRANTED with the exception
that the Clerk of Court shall seal the Complaint for Interpleader (Doc. 9) in its
entirety rather than merely pages 1 and 2. Allstate shall submit to the Court within
fourteen (14) days of the date of this order a redacted version of its Complaint for
Interpleader, removing the information that does not comply with Rule 5.2(a).
DATED this 29th day of March, 2017.
TIMOTHY J. CAVAN
United States Magistrate Judge
