  • What is the procedure when filing a motion/document under seal?

    When filing a motion/document under seal, you should follow these steps:



    Place the motion/document to be sealed in an open letter-sized manila envelope.

    Prepare a cover motion requesting permission to place your motion/document under seal.

    Attach the cover motion by stapling it outside the manila envelope containing the motion/document to be sealed.

    File the motion/document to be sealed at the intake counter. The intake Clerk will stamp both documents and will immediately deliver them to the Chief Deputy Clerk or the Operations Manager for docketing and delivery to the presiding district or magistrate judge.

    Once the district or magistrate judge has ruled upon the cover motion to seal, the sealed motion/document will be forwarded to the Chief Deputy Clerk or the Operations Manager, who will notify the order to seal and subsequently place the sealed motion/document in the Clerk's Office vault.
