1 NOTICE OF MOTION AND MOTION


2 Pursuant to Northern District of California Civil Local Rules 7-11 and 79-5(c), Defendant-
3
Intervenors Dennis Hollingsworth, Gail Knight, Martin Gutierrez, Mark Jansson, and Protectmar-
4
riage.com (“Proponents”) hereby move for an administrative order sealing portions of the Declara-
5
tion of Ronald Prentice (dated January 16, 2010).
6

7 At a hearing before Magistrate Judge Spero on January 6, 2010, the Court ruled that Proponents

8 may submit under seal for in camera review a declaration relating to the “core group” of persons

9 engaged in the formulation of campaign strategy and messages for ProtectMarriage.com. See Hr’g
10 of Jan. 6, 2010, Tr. 108:2-4. Proponents submitted such a declaration and the Court ordered that
11
portions of that declaration sealed. On January 18, 2010, Proponents filed a motion to amend the
12
Court’s order defining the “core group.” In support of that motion, and as soon as the Clerk of the
13
Court is open to receive such a filing, Proponents will submit two copies of the declaration of
14

15 Ronald Prentice (dated January 16, 2010) to the Court in a sealed envelope. See N.D. Cal. L.R. 79-

16 5(c)(3)-(4); Declaration of Jesse Panuccio (Jan. 18, 2010). Proponents also filed on the electronic

17 docket a copy of the declaration that redacts one name and excludes the exhibit to the declaration.
18
See N.D. Cal. L.R. 79-5(c)(5).
19
Proponents respectfully request that the Court enter an order sealing the (i) portion of the decla-
20
ration of Ronald Prentice (dated Jan. 16, 2010) that is redacted and (ii) the exhibit to the declaration.

1 I, Jesse Panuccio, declare as follows:


2 1. I am an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of Florida and the District of Co-
3
lumbia and am admitted pro hac vice in this case. I am an associate at the law firm of Cooper
4
& Kirk, PLLC, counsel of record for Defendant-Intervenors Dennis Hollingsworth, Gail
5
Knight, Martin Gutierrez, Mark Jansson, and ProtectMarriage.com. I make this declaration in
6

7 support of Defendant-Intervenors’ Administrative Motion to Seal Portions of the Declaration of

8 Ronald Prentice.

9 2. Defendant-Intervenors will submit to the Clerk of the Court two copies of Mr. Prentice’s
10 declaration (dated January 16, 2010) and exhibit in sealed envelopes on January 19, 2010. De-
11
fendant-Intervenors also have filed on the electronic docket a redacted copy of the declaration.
12
The redacted portion of the declaration consists of the name of one individual. The redacted
13
declaration also does not include the exhibit, which consists of internal, nonpublic documents
14

15 relating to campaign strategy and messaging.

16 3. A stipulation could not be obtained in this matter because Civil Local Rule 79-(5)(a)

17 prohibits the sealing of documents or information by agreement of the parties, and therefore the
18 parties are unable to enter into such a stipulation.
19

20
I declare, under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States, that these facts
21
are true and correct and that this Declaration is executed this 18th day of January, 2010, at
22

23 Washington, D.C.
