Preska United States District Court, Southern District of New York United States Courthouse, Courtroom 12A 500 Pearl Street New York, NY 10007-1312 Re: Berall v. Verathon, Inc. et al., C.A. No. 1:10-cv-05777-LAP-DCF (S.D.N.Y.) Dear Judge Preska: We represent Defendant Teleflex Medical Incorporated (“Teleflex”) in the above-referenced matter. Pursuant to Your Honor’s Individual Practices, Teleflex seeks an order permitting Teleflex to file under seal the following documents: An unredacted copy of Teleflex’s Motion for Summary Judgment (“Motion”), filed on February 12, 2021; An unredacted copy of Teleflex’s Statement of Undisputed Material Facts (“Statement”), filed on February 12, 2021; and Exhibit A to the Declaration of Jonathan R. Wise, filed on February 12, 2021. The redacted sections of the Motion and the Statement reflect terms of a Confidential Settlement Agreement entered into by Plaintiff, Jonathan Berall (“Settlement Agreement”). Exhibit A is the Confidential Settlement Agreement. Teleflex and the parties to the Settlement Agreement have agreed to keep its terms confidential. In addition, Berall has marked the Settlement Agreement “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – OUTSIDE COUNSEL’S EYES ONLY,” pursuant to the Stipulated Protective Order entered on February 5, 2021 (Dkt. 252.) Moreover, Courts in this district have routinely recognized that settlement agreements are confidential and have ordered that documents referencing the terms of such agreements be filed under seal. See e.g. Comoosl Corp. et al. v. C-Callon. Inc. et al., 11-cv-1922 (S.D.N.Y. May 19, 2011), Dkt. No. 33; Comoosl Corp. et al. v. C-Callon. Inc. et al., 11-cv-1922 (S.D.N.Y. July 25, 2011), Dkt.
