The Atomic Café et al. v. Roy et al. (17-cv-11927).

Judge Talwani allowed in part and denied in part a joint motion for a protective order. The motion was allowed insofar as it governed exchange of documents and information between the parties.  The motion was denied without prejudice, however, insofar as it purported to designate what the court would allow to be filed under seal.  In keeping with past practice, Judge Talwani propounded a strong defense of the presumptive public right of access to judicial documents, whereby only the most compelling reasons would permit the filing of documents.  To that end, a party seeking to impound must show, on a document-by-document basis, a particular factual demonstration of potential harm by making a document or other information public.
