IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
JERRY QUARLES, JR.,
Civil Action 2:17-cv-245
Judge George C. Smith
Magistrate Judge Jolson
RYAN HUFFMAN, et al.,
This matter is before the Court on Defendant’s Amended Motion to Re-File Exhibits
Under Seal and in Redacted Form. (Doc. 48). Defendant seeks to re-file Exhibit 6, Plaintiff’s
medical records, under seal (Doc. 45-6), and requests leave to re-file Exhibits 1 and 7 in redacted
form, redacting only Plaintiff’s social security number. (Docs. 45-1, 45-7). Defendant further
explains that “[t]hese redactions are made in the interest of protecting Plaintiff’s personal
information from public disclosure.”
Following review, the Court finds that the Motion properly demonstrates a compelling
reason for filing under seal and is narrowly tailored to serve that reason. See Blasi v. United
Debt Servs., LLC, No. 2:14-CV-83, 2016 WL 3765539, at *1 (S.D. Ohio July 14, 2016)
Accordingly, for good cause shown, Defendant’s Motion to Re-File Exhibits Under Seal and in
Redacted Form (Doc. 48) is GRANTED. Consequently, the Clerk is DIRECTED to seal
Exhibits 1, 6, and 7 in Document 45 (Docs. 45-1, 45-6, and 45-7), and place the redacted
versions of Exhibit 1 (Doc. 48-1) and 7 (Doc. 48-2) on the docket.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
