20 and CYBER NINJAS, INC., a Florida

21
22 Defendants.

23 Defendant Cyber Ninja, Inc. (“Cyber Ninjas”), by and through undersigned counsel,

24 request an Emergency Status Conference Regarding the Court’s Sue Sponte Release of Exhibit
25 D9 to the public.
26 On April 26, 2021, Cyber Ninjas filed its Motion To File Ex Parte And Under Seal [Arcp

27 5.4] And Notice Of Lodging (“Motion to Seal”). The Motion to Seal contained Exhibit D9 and
28 Exhibit D10. Subsequently, on April 28, 2021, the Court held a hearing on the Motion to Seal,
1 inter alia. The Court denied the Motion to Seal, but as its part of the Order the Court stayed its
2 ruling “until 12:00 p.m. on April 29, 2021 in order to allow Defendant Cyber Ninjas, Inc. … time
3 to seek appellate review.” See Min Entry, Apr. 29, 2021, at 3.
4 On April 29, 2021 at 11:02 am, fifty-eight (58) minutes prior to the 12:00 pm deadline,
5 undersigned counsel emailed the following to the Court’s judicial assistant:
6 Defendant Cyber Ninjas, Inc.’s previously filed Motion to Seal
documents, which has been commonly referred to as Exhibit D.
7 Yesterday, the Court denied the Motion to Seal and gave Cyber Ninjas
until 12:00 pm today to produce Exhibit D to Plaintiff Arizona
8 Democratic Party. Exhibit D contains subpart D9 which is the Arizona
Audit Security Overview (“Exhibit D9”). Exhibit D9 contains security
9 information that should not be available to the public. Cyber Ninja
and Plaintiff and intervenors have reached an agreement regarding
10 Exhibit D9. Accordingly, we request that the Court not publicly
release Exhibit D9 or instruct the Clerk of Court to publicly release
11 Exhibit D9.
12 Please let us know if the Court would prefer that the parties file a
stipulated motion regarding Exhibit D9 or have a quick status
13 conference to discuss further.
14 See Email, dated April 29, 2021, attached hereto as Exhibit A.1
15 At 11:38 am, the Court’s judicial assistant stated that “The Court would prefer that the
16 parties file a stipulated motion regarding Exhibit D9.” See id. Accordingly, undersigned counsel
17 drafted the stipulated motion and emailed it to all parties involved in this matter.
18 At 12:58 pm, the Court’s judicial assistant sent an email to undersigned counsel, Ms. Desai,
19 and Mr. Langhofer, which stated, “The Court is asking for an update on the stipulated motion.”
20 Undersigned counsel informed the Court’s judicial assistant that “All parties have been provided
21 a proposed joint stipulated motion. I am waiting on approval. I will follow-up with the Court once
22 the parties have approved the joint stipulated motion.”2 Id.
23 At 3:32 pm, Cyber Ninjas filed the Stipulation To Seal Exhibit D9 (the “Stipulation”),
24 which requested that the Court seal Exhibit D9 because it contained “sensitive security
25 information regarding the Audit taking place at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum[.]” Stip.
26
1
Rooplai Desai and Kory Langhofer were included on the email.
27 2
Undersigned counsel informed the Court that Cyber Ninja had already disclosed Exhibit D to
28 the plaintiffs. See Ex. A.

2
1 To Seal Ex. D9 at 1:25-27 attached hereto as Exhibit B. The Stipulation also stated that the parties
2 agreed that Exhibit D9 will be produced with the designation “Attorney’s Eyes Only” and
3 identified the parties that were authorized to review the document. Id. at 1:28-2:1, n. 1.3 A courtesy
4 copy of the Stipulation was provided to the Court’s judicial assistant at 3:45 pm, and three minutes
5 later, the Court’s judicial assistant responded, “Thank you.” See Email attached hereto as Exhibit
6 C. 4
7 Although the Court had knowledge since 11:02 am that the Parties agreed that Exhibit D9
8 should be sealed and not made available to the public, the Court released Exhibit D9 to the public
9 via Maricopa County’s Clerk of the Superior Court website.5 See Image attached hereto as Exhibit
10 D. It is not known when the Court released the Exhibit D9, it began to appear on the internet after
11 6:00 pm. At or around 10:12 pm, ABC15.com published an article describing details of Exhibit
12 D9 and had knowledge of the agreement between the parties that Exhibit D9 was not to be release
13 to the public. See Article attached hereto as Exhibit E.6
14 Therefore, Cyber Ninjas request an emergency status conference regarding the public
15 disclosure of Exhibit D9.

28 filed under seal until this Court instructs otherwise. The Parties have agreed that Exhibit D9 will

PHOENIX — Cyber Ninjas, the Florida company hired by Arizona Senate


Republicans to conduct the controversial recount of 2.1 million Maricopa County
ballots from November’s presidential and senate races, tried to keep its auditing
procedures shielded from public view.

In response to media requests, a Maricopa Superior Court judge ruled Wednesday


that the company must disclose its audit procedures. Attorneys on the case tell
ABC15 that lawyers from both sides agreed to let Cyber Ninjas keep its security
plans under wraps.

This evening however, it was included in a public filing along with several other
policies and procedures being used to maintain the integrity of the ballots.

Those documents filed accidentally with the Maricopa County Clerk of Court
describe scenarios for potential attacks on the auditing facility by "Antifa” or
militias.

Election Audit, Cyber Ninjas has to reveal methods

One major component of the plan is a threat assessment of security vulnerabilities


at the Arizona State Fairgrounds, where the audit is being conducted, and
surrounding areas, including streets. Planners laid out scenarios that could
disrupt the ballot-counting process. Antifa is referred to by name.

It says they “will likely use the backed-up traffic in those six lanes to slow police
and fire response to any perimeter breach operation: Any ad-hoc or opportunistic
incendiary attack.”

It is also determined that there was a “greater threat of militia activity than antifa
activity.” In some areas surrounding the coliseum, but that the “probability and
likelihood are low.”

The security plan also lays out specific plans and positions for security personnel
at the Coliseum, which includes private security company to monitor of the
interior of the building for 24 hours a day, seven days a week while the ballots are
present.

No such disruptions have occurred during the recount.

The document names the Arizona Rangers, a uniformed volunteer law


enforcement auxiliary agency, as the security force at the fairgrounds, and lists
another uknown law enforcement agency.

Cyber Ninja's lists Phoenix Law Enforcement Officers Association as providing at


least two officers for support and a promise of four to eight more if marches or
protests occur. The name of the group is similar to PLEA (Phoenix Law
Enforcement Association) however, PLEA tells ABC15 it is not associated with the
audit.

Neither group is an official state, county or municipal law enforcement agency.

Hi Jordan,
 
Thanks for your email. The Court just responded and indicated that it prefers a stipulated motion to
outline what you stated below. Plaintiffs ADP and Gallardo agree that only attorneys that have made
appearances will have access to and review Ex. D9 (the document marked AEO because it purportedly
contains sensitive security info). We also agree that you should email the entire Ex. D to us by 12 pm.
Thanks.
 
Regards,
Roopali

Roopali, 
 
Thank you for agreeing to the AEO designation. This is to confirm that only attorneys that have made an
appearance in CV2021-006646 will have access and review the documents marked AEO. Moreover, I
will only be sending counsel the documents via email and will not be refiling them with the Court. Exhibit
D has already been filed with Court under seal. I am under the impression that the Court will instruct the
Clerk of Court to release the documents that were previously filed under seal. You were included on the
p y
email to Judge Martin's JA requesting that the Court not release Exhibit D9 to the public. We have not
received a response. 
 
As an alternative, we can file a joint stipulated motion to strike the previously filed Exhibit D from the
record and we can refile Exhibit D, not including any documents marked AEO, with the Court today. 
 
Please let me know your thoughts on how you would like to proceed. 
 
I am available for a quick call fi you would like to discuss further.

Jordan,
 
Counsel for Plaintiffs and Intervenors are fine with you filing all the documents with the Court (and
emailing us the filing), except the single document that you believe contains sensitive security
information, which you can mark “AEO” and send to counsel only for review. If we believe that some or
all of the “AEO” designated document should be filed with the Court, we will confer with you first and
then, if we cannot reach agreement, we can take it up with the Court. I think that resolves the issue you
called me about, but if I am missing something, please let me know. Thanks.
