Guerrero v. Wharton
ORDER granting 74 Motion to Seal; ORDER granting 77 Motion to Seal; Signed by Magistrate Judge Nancy J. Koppe on 4/12/2018. (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - JM)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Case No.: 2:16-cv-01667-GMN-NJK
VINCENT NEIL WHARTON,
[Docket Nos. 74, 77]
Pending before the Court are two motions to seal exhibits filed with respect to a discovery
17 dispute. Docket Nos. 74, 77; see also Docket Nos. 58, 68 (sealed documents). A response was
18 not filed to either motion. Proposed redactions were filed with the motions. Docket Nos. 74-1,
19 74-2, 74-3, 74-5, 77-1, 77-2, 77-3. The Court may seal information filed in relation to a non20 dispositive motion upon a particularized showing of good cause. See, e.g., Kamakana v. City &
21 County of Honolulu, 447 F.3d 1172, 1180 (9th Cir. 2006). In this case, the parties seek to keep
22 secret redacted information related to medical issues, sexual history, and settlement discussions.
23 Good cause exists to do so, and the motions are therefore GRANTED. The Clerk’s Office is
24 INSTRUCTED to continue maintaining under seal the exhibits at Docket Nos. 58 and 68.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: April 12, 2018
