Treasure Island, LLC v. Affiliated FM Insurance Company
ORDER Denying without prejudice 182 Motion to Seal. See Order for details/deadlines. Signed by Magistrate Judge Elayna J. Youchah on 7/15/2021. (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - MR)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
TREASURE ISLAND, LLC,
Case No. 2:20-cv-00965-JCM-EJY
AFFILIATED FM INSURANCE COMPANY,
Pending before the Court is Defendant’s Motion to File Under Seal.
ECF No. 182.
Defendant seeks to file the entirety of its Memorandum of Points & Authorities Regarding Attorney-
Client Privilege and all exhibits thereto (ECF No. 181) under seal. Presumably because the entirety
of the Memorandum and exhibits are sought to be sealed no unsealed versions of the documents
While the Court understand that the factual material and arguments based on those facts are
confidential, the Court is unclear why Defendant believes legal citations and pure legal arguments
should be redacted. Moreover, and by way of example only, the Court also does not find standard
terms in a retention letter or standard terms and conditions relating to the retention of a consultant
necessarily confidential. The Court notes that citations and legal discussions speaking to the issue
of attorney-client privilege are not, in and of themselves confidential. Moreover, motions pertaining
to attorney-client privilege are not unusual and are not typically redacted in their entirety.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Defendant’s Motion to File Under Seal (ECF
No. 182) is DENIED without prejudice.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that ECF No. 181, Defendant’s Memorandum of Points &
Authorities Regarding Attorney-Client Privilege and all exhibits thereto shall remain temporarily
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Defendant shall, no later than July 29, 2021, submit either
(1) a revised Motion to Seal explaining why the entirety of its Memorandum and exhibits should
remain sealed in their entirety or (2) a redacted version of the Memorandum and exhibits thereto,
together with a revised Motion to Seal, seeking only to seal the redacted portions of Defendant’s
DATED this 15th day of July, 2021.
