Parties are required to 18 use only a minor’s initials rather than the minor’s full name in court filings. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 19 5.2(a)(3); Local Rule IC 6-1(a)(2). The Court recognizes that the minor’s name is included in the 20 official record of the state court proceedings prior to removal, see Docket No. 1, and that the Federal 21 Rules of Civil Procedure provide an exemption from the redaction requirements for the state court 22 record, see Fed.
