To seal a document, the party must file a motion to seal (CM/ECF event “Motion to Seal Document”). The document to be sealed must be filed separately from the motion (CM/ECF event “Sealed Document”) or it will be accessible for public viewing. Once filed, the document will be provisionally sealed and available only to the filing party and the court. If the court denies the motion to seal, the document will be accessible for public viewing. A motion to unseal or view a sealed document or an objection to seal a document may be made on any grounds permitted by law.
