The unredacted versions of these briefs were filed under seal because they contained information designated as “protected information” by the Government.
Protective Order ¶¶ I.B.10 (defining “protected information”) & I.E.49 (authorizing under seal filing of documents containing protected information). The attached public versions have been redacted to shield that protected information. As the Protective Order contemplates, the parties still need to confer regarding the redacted versions of the attached briefs to determine whether Petitioner objects to any of the redactions.
Protective Order ¶ I.E.34. Once Petitioner notes his objections, if any, Respondents suggest that the parties propose a briefing schedule to the Court so that the matter may be properly presented for decision.

Respondents note that public versions of corresponding documents pertaining to the nearly identical preliminary-injunction applications filed in two other cases,
Hassan v. Obama
, Civ. Action No. 04-1194 (TFH), and
Rabbani v. Bush
, Civ. Action No. 05-1607 (RCL) shortly will be filed on the public docket in those cases. To the extent further litigation ensues regarding the propriety of the redactions in the public versions of the documents filed in this case,
, the Court should coordinate such litigation between the cases so as to promote efficient use of the Court’s and parties’ resources, as well as prevent potentially inconsistent rulings in the cases regarding the appropriate public versions of the same information and materials.
