Pursuant to LR 26-4(c) (see also 2012-6 In Re Electronic Filing of Documents Pursuant to an Existing Protective Order in a Civil Case.pdf ), Registered Users are required to file documents authorized for filing under seal pursuant to an existing protective order via CM/ECF.
If a protective order exists in a civil case, the user will be asked during filing if the document should be filed under seal.
Selecting "Yes" will restrict access to the document only (not the docket entry) to participants in the case. Selecting "No" will not restrict the document.
At the final warning screen, the user will be able to see the Document Restricted According to Protective Order text indicating the PDF attached to the docket entry is restricted.
