Wright v. Premier Courier, Inc.
ORDER denying without prejudice 50 Motion to File Document Under Seal. Signed by Magistrate Judge Kimberly A. Jolson on 7/11/2017. (ew)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
Civil Action 2:16-cv-420
Judge Michael H. Watson
Magistrate Judge Jolson
PREMIER COURIER, INC.,
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff’s Motion to File his Memorandum in Support
of his Motion for Conditional and Class Certification under Seal. (Doc. 50). As the movant,
Plaintiff has the heavy burden of overcoming a strong presumption in favor of openness as to
court records. Shane Grp., Inc. v. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Mich., 825 F.3d 299, No. 15-1544,
2016 WL 3163073, at *3 (6th Cir. June 7, 2016). In addition to establishing a compelling reason
to justify non-disclosure of the information, Plaintiff must demonstrate that the seal is “narrowly
tailored to serve that reason.” Id. Here, Plaintiff states only that the Memorandum in Support
describes information that was revealed in documents designed as confidential pursuant to the
protective order; thus, Plaintiff has not satisfied that standard. (See Doc. 50 at 1). Consequently,
Plaintiff’s Motion to File his Memorandum in Support of his Motion for Conditional and Class
Certification under Seal is DENIED without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Date: July 11, 2017
