B-9018-1. SEALED CASES AND DOCUMENTS

(a) Filing a Case or Document Under Seal

A party seeking to file a case or document under seal shall follow the Sealed Cases and Documents procedures in the Court's ECF Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual.

(b) Termination of Seal

Five years after the order imposing the seal, unless the Court in establishing the seal has set a different date for the seal to be terminated, the Clerk shall give notice to the party that requested the seal and any party that objected to the request that the seal will be terminated if no objection is filed within 21 days of the notice. If no objection is filed, or if the Court overrules the objection, the Clerk shall terminate the seal and make the documents available.  The Clerk may then dispose of the sealed records according to the archiving procedures established by the Judicial Conference.
