Case 2:19-cv-00966-APG-NJK Document 80 Filed 09/15/22 Page 1 of 1 1 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 2 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 3 DAVON LYONS, Case No. 2:19-cv-00966-APG-NJK Petitioner, 4 5 v. 6 WARDEN BRIAN WILLIAMS, et al., 7 Order Granting Motion for Leave to File Exhibit Under Seal [ECF No. 79] Respondents. 8 9 Before the Court is the Petitioner’s motion for leave to file document under seal. ECF 10 No. 79. The Petitioner seek leave to file one document under seal: his Presentence Investigation 11 Report (“PSI”), dated December 30, 2014. ECF No. 78. Under Nevada law, the PSI is 12 “confidential and must not be made a part of any public record.” NRS § 176.156(5). Having 13 reviewed and considered the matter in accordance with Kamakana v. City and County of 14 Honolulu, 447 F.3d 1172 (9th Cir. 2006), and its progeny, I find that a compelling need to 15 protect the Petitioner’s safety, privacy, and/or personal identifying information outweighs the 16 public interest in open access to court records. 17 I THEREFORE ORDER that the motion to seal (ECF No. 79) is granted. Exhibit 24 18 (ECF No. 78) is considered properly filed under seal. 19 20 21 22 23 Dated: September 15, 2022 ANDREW P. GORDON UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
