PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE UNDER SEAL PLAINTIFFS' OPPOSITION TO MEILING DEFENDANTS' MOTION ON PLAINTIFFS' IMPROPER COMMUNICATION WITH PUTATIVE CLASS MEMBERS

VALERIE P. COOKE, Magistrate Judge.

PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE UNDER SEAL PLAINTIFFS' OPPOSITION TO MEILING DEFENDANTS' MOTION ON PLAINTIFFS' IMPROPER COMMUNICATION WITH PUTATIVE CLASS MEMBERS

Pursuant to Local Rule 10-5(a), Plaintiffs respectfully request that their Opposition to Meiling Defendants' Motion on Plaintiffs Improper Communication with Putative Class Members (the "Opposition") be accepted for filing under seal.

On May 12, 2017, the Meiling Defendants filed their own Motion to Seal (ECF No. 76). That motion attached the Meiling Defendants' Motion on Plaintiffs' Improper Communication with Putative Class Members (the "Motion").

The Motion attached a confidential and privileged communication to/from harmed investors, plaintiffs, and members of the putative class as an exhibit. The Opposition addresses the Motion, and accordingly, the confidential and privileged communication.

As the Opposition will further explain, not only was the communication confidential and privileged, but it never should have been read by the Meiling Defendants or their counsel.

On this basis, Plaintiffs request that its Opposition be filed under seal pursuant to LR 10-5(a).

IT IS SO ORDERED.
