Case 2:21-cv-01341-APG-VCF Document 29 Filed 05/10/22 Page 1 of 1 1 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 2 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 3 4 5 6 7 RONALD SHEFFEY, v. Case No. 2:21-cv-01341-APG-VCF Petitioner, ORDER (ECF No. 24) WILLIAM HUTCHINGS, et al., Respondents. 8 Before the court is the respondents’ Motion for Leave to File Documents Under Seal. ECF 9 No. 24. The respondents seek leave to file under seal one document in support of their Answer 10 (ECF No. 15): Exhibit 26, Petitioner’s Presentence Investigation Report (“PSI”) (ECF No. 25), 11 dated July 26, 2017. Under Nevada law, the PSI is “confidential and must not be made a part of 12 any public record.” Nev. Rev. Stat. § 176.156(5). 13 Having reviewed and considered the matter in accordance with Kamakana v. City and 14 County of Honolulu, 447 F.3d 1172 (9th Cir. 2006), and its progeny, I find that a compelling need 15 to protect Petitioner’s safety, privacy, and/or personal identifying information outweighs the public 16 interest in open access to court records. 17 IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED: 18 1. The respondents’ Motion for Leave to File Documents Under Seal (ECF No. 24) is 19 GRANTED. 20 2. Exhibit 26 (ECF No. 25) is considered properly filed under seal. 21 Dated: May 10, 2022 22 ANDREW P. GORDON UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 23 24 25 26 27 28 1
