ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO FILE UNDER SEAL CONFIDENTIAL 21 CVS Pharmacy, Inc., INFORMATION SUBMITTED WITH DECLARATION OF BRIAN DEVERY 22 Defendant. OF ANGEION GROUP, LLC 23 24 25 26 27 28 PLFS' ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO FILE UNDER SEAL CASE NO. 4:15-CV-03504-YGR 1 Pursuant to Civil Local Rules 7-11 and 79-5, Class Plaintiffs, by and through their counsel, 2 respectfully submit this administrative motion for an order permitting Exhibit A to the June 9, 2020 3 Declaration of Brian Devery of Angeion Group, LLC re: Exclusion Requests to be filed under seal. 4 Exhibit A, which sets forth the names of all class members who have requested to be excluded from 5 the certified classes, nominally discloses HIPAA-protected medical information, namely that these 6 individuals obtained prescription drugs from a CVS pharmacy. 7 Materials and documents may be filed under seal pursuant to Civil Local Rule 79-5 when 8 the document, or portions thereof, are privileged, or otherwise entitled to protection under the law. 9 L.R. 79-5(b). This administrative motion is narrowly tailored: the motion seeks to seal only that 10 information that is related to the HIPAA-protected medical information. 11 Class Plaintiffs seek this relief in good faith pursuant to L.R. 79-5(e). The information sought 12 to be sealed has been designated as Confidential because it contains the identity of class members 13 who have requested to be excluded from the class, which is in turn linked to these individuals' 14 HIPAA-protected medical information. 15 Class Plaintiffs conferred with counsel for CVS in advance of filing of this administrative 16 motion to seal. CVS does not object to the relief sought herein. See the Declaration of Jonathan K. 17 Levine filed herewith. 18 Class Plaintiffs submit herewith a Proposed Order. Pursuant to the Northern District's March 19 25, 2020 Notice re: Covid-19, Class Plaintiffs will not lodge a hard copy of the unredacted Exhibit 20 A to the Devery Declaration with the Court unless they are directed to do so. 21 22 Dated: June 11, 2020 Respectfully submitted, 23 By: /s/ Jonathan K.
