Shotts v. Evans

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS


September 1, 2009

TERRY E. SHOTTS, PETITIONER,
v.
JOHN EVANS, RESPONDENT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge

ORDER

Before the Court is Petitioner's motion to restrict public access and to seal (Doc. 70). Petitioner asks that Exhibit B to his Supplemental Arguments be filed under seal, as the exhibit contains the name of an alleged minor, pursuant to the Report of the Judicial Conference Committee on Court Administration and Case Management on Privacy and Public Access to Electronic Case Files and Magistrate Judge Proud's August 29,2007 Order.*fn1 Based on the reasons in the motion, the Court DENIES Petitioner's motion to seal Exhibit B (Doc. 70). The Court, having determined that Exhibit B contains the full names of minors, finds it must strike and remove document 72 from the record as Plaintiff did not comply with the very privacy policy he cited. The policy specifically provides that a litigant is to redact the names of minors leaving only the first initials of the names. Therefore, Plaintiff will have to resubmit the exhibit, in compliance with the policy of Congress and the Judicial Conference redacting the name of the minor leaving in its place only the initials B.K., with the balance of the names blackened out. The document then shall not be sealed. The Clerk is directed to remove document 72 from the record.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
