Shokri v. Boeing Company
ORDER granting Plaintiff's 34 Motion to File Under Seal signed by Judge Ricardo S Martinez. (TH)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
Case No. C16-1132RSM
ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO FILE
THE BOEING COMPANY, a Delaware
THIS MATTER comes before the Court on Plaintiff’s Motion to Seal. Dkt. #34.
Plaintiff seeks to file under seal Exhibit C to the Declaration of Scott C.G. Blankenship in
Support of Plaintiff’s Motion for Extension of Time to Supplement the Record to Provide the
Court Newly Discovered Evidence Related to Plaintiff’s Motion to Compel. Id. This
document was marked “Confidential” by Defendant under the parties’ Protective Order.
“There is a strong presumption of public access to the court’s files.” Local Rule CR
5(g)(2). For nondispositive motions, “this presumption may be overcome by a showing of
good cause.” Id. The Court has reviewed the motion, along with the remainder of the record,
and now finds good cause to GRANT the motion. The document identified by Plaintiff
contains information that is both proprietary in nature and has sensitive employment
information for a non-party to this litigation. Given the nature of the document, it is not
feasible to redact it.
