IN RE BIG LOTS, INC.

Magistrate Judge Jolson
This matter is before the Court on Nominal Defendant Big Lots, Inc.’s Motion for Leave
to File Motion to Dismiss Under Seal. (Doc. 92). As was previously explained in the Court’s
April 21, 2017 status conference and Order (Doc. 88), the Sixth Circuit has set a heavy burden
on the moving party to justify filing documents under seal. See Shane Grp., Inc. v. Blue Cross
Blue Shield of Michigan, 825 F.3d 299, 305 (6th Cir. 2016) (“The burden of overcoming that
presumption is borne by the party that seeks to seal them. The burden is a heavy one: Only the
most compelling reasons can justify non-disclosure of judicial records.”) (internal citations and
Consistent with the discussions and reasoning during that status conference though, the
Motion for Leave to File Motion to Dismiss Under Seal (Doc. 92) is GRANTED. As was the
case with the Special Litigation Committee Report, as this case moves forward, the parties are
DIRECTED to move promptly to unseal any and all information that does not warrant underseal treatment.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
