Filing of Documents Under Seal
Any document to be filed as a restricted or sealed document as defined by Local Rule 26.2 must comply strictly with Local Rule 5.8. Any party wishing to file a document or portion of a document electronically under seal in connection with a motion, brief or other submission must: (1) provisionally file the document electronically under seal; (2) file electronically at the same time a public-record version that includes the entire filing except for the portions that are being filed under seal; and (3) move the court for leave to file the document under seal. The sealing motion must be filed before or simultaneously with the provisional filing of the document under seal, and must be noticed for presentment promptly thereafter. Any document filed under seal without such a sealing motion may be stricken by the court without notice.
