United States District Court

v.
ORDER RE EXCESSIVE
For the Northern District of California

12 UBER TECHNOLOGIES, INC., et al., REDACTIONS


13 Defendants.
14 /

15 With respect to defendants administrative motion to shorten time for briefing and
16 hearing on their motion to compel arbitration, the Court first states its strong concern that the
17 memorandum in support of the motion to compel is overly redacted. Our federal courts belong
18 to the public, and the public and the press have a legitimate interest in looking over our
19 shoulders to see the work in progress in our courts. The essence of our work concerns
20 evaluating competing arguments. Parties should not hide those arguments under seal out of a
21 desire to shroud business dealings in secrecy.
22 The Court intends to grant a measure of expedited hearing on the motion but before
23 doing so insists that the parties meet and confer and agree on a wholly public version of the
24 motion that is completely unredacted, or show good cause for maintaining privacy over any
25 specific portions. Please do so by MARCH 29 AT 5:00 P.M.
