Stipulated Motion of the Partes to Place Exhibit One to Final Judgment Under Seal
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EXHIBIT ONE TO FINAL JUDGMENT UNDER SEAL
By this stipulated Motion, Plaintiff and Defendants move this Court pursuant to Local Court Rule 106(j) and Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(c) for an order permitting the United States to file under seal Exhibit 1 to the proposed Final Judgment.
Exhibit 1 is a list of a small number of individuals who Defendants may continue to subject to employment-related non-competition clauses as they relate to the Divested Products (as defined by the Final Judgment). Enforcement of these individuals' non-competition clauses are an express exception to Section V.D of the proposed Final Judgment, which otherwise prohibits Defendants from enforcing such clauses as to any employee hired by the Acquirer (as defined by the Final Judgment) of the Divested Products. The individuals named in Exhibit 1 are subject to confidential employment agreements, and revealing the terms of such agreements or the identities of such individuals may disclose Defendants' confidential commercial information. The parties agree that public disclosure of the identity of the individuals named in Exhibit 1 is not necessary to the Court's evaluation whether the proposed Final Judgment is in the public interest pursuant to the Antitrust Procedures and Penalties Act, 15 U.S.C. § 16.
Therefore, the parties move for an Order in the form attached hereto permitting Exhibit 1 to the proposed Final Judgment to be filed and maintained under seal.
Good cause having been shown and pursuant to Rule 26(c) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Local Rule 106(j), the Court ORDERS as follows:
The document filed as Exhibit 1 to the proposed Final Judgment in this matter shall be placed under seal by the Clerk of the Court, and shall not be made part of the public record for any purposes.
