THE HONORABLE JOHN C. COUGHENOUR 1 2 3 4 5 6 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON AT SEATTLE 7 8 9 10 11 ADAMS FINANCIAL PARTNERS, L.P., a Washington limited partnership, and ADAMS FINANCIAL CONCEPTS, LLC, a Washington limited liability company, 14 15 v. PATKE ASSOCIATES LTD., an Illinois company, Defendant. 16 17 MINUTE ORDER Plaintiffs, 12 13 CASE NO. C16-0392-JCC The following Minute Order is made by direction of the Court, the Honorable John C. 18 Coughenour, United States District Judge: 19 This matter comes before the Court on the parties’ stipulated motion to seal (Dkt. No. 50) 20 Exhibit E of the Kosten Declaration (Dkt. No. 31-1). Based on the argument set forth in the 21 parties’ stipulated motion (Dkt. No. 50 at 1-3)—namely, the protection of non-party identities 22 and financial information—the Court finds good cause to GRANT the motion. 23 However, as a practical matter, Exhibit E cannot be sealed and redacted because it was 24 not filed as a standalone document on the electronic docket. Instead, it is part of a document 25 (Dkt. No. 31-1) along with Exhibits A-D. To address this issue, the Court DIRECTS: (1) the 26 Clerk to seal Docket Number 31-1; (2) the parties to resubmit Exhibits A-D of the Kosten MINUTE ORDER, C16-0392-JCC PAGE - 1 1 Declaration as a standalone document that will not be sealed; and (3) the parties to file the 2 redacted version of Exhibit E as a standalone document. 3 DATED this 15th day of June 2017. 4 William M. McCool Clerk of Court 5 s/Paula McNabb Deputy Clerk 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 MINUTE ORDER, C16-0392-JCC PAGE - 2
