Motion to Strike
Filed By: John C
Submit Date: 2-5-2016
Decision: (D) Deny
Decision Date: 4-15-2016
ORD that the motion to strike is denied. The court treated the copies it received of letters sent by counsel for Unnamed Movants 2, 7 and 8 to the Attorney General as simply courtesy copies of correspondence. The court did not consider those letters, which did not request any relief or action from the court, to be additional responses to the Intervenor District Attorneys motion to amend the John Doe II secrecy orders and did not rely on those letters in deciding the motion to amend the John Doe II secrecy orders. The court also did not consider the letter sent by Deputy Attorney General Andrew Cook to be a response to the motion to amend the John Doe II secrecy orders, and it did not rely on that letter in deciding the motion to amend the secrecy orders. Moreover, the court has issued its decision on the motion to amend the John Doe II secrecy orders, and there is no reason to strike those letters as untimely responses to that motion. Finally, the court notes that it does not intend to solicit any further briefing regarding the matters discussed in the motion to amend the John Doe II secrecy orders and the subsequent briefing on that motion.

SHIRLEY S. ABRAHAMSON, C.J. (dissenting). I repeat what I wrote in a redaction order issued April 1, 2015: The court continues to direct the parties to redact too much information from their public filings and therefore continues to fail to keep the public adequately informed about the issues and arguments in these John Doe cases. For a full discussion of the reasons for my views, please see my dissents to the three orders issued on March 27, 2015.

Court Order
IT IS ORDERED that the parties are directed to place the case captions and case numbers of all three proceedings identified above on the cover of each brief filed in this court. The clerk of this court shall file each brief in the case file of each of the three proceedings.

ANN WALSH BRADLEY, J., did not participate.
SHIRLEY S. ABRAHAMSON, C.J. (concurring). I do not object to having the case captions and case numbers of all three proceedings on the parties brief covers. I write separately to note that, unfortunately, the court fails to acknowledge that these cases have been consolidated only for purposes of briefing and argument and that they remain separate proceedings in this court. The court sua sponte cannot add parties to any of the proceedings now before this court without proper motions to intervene, responses, and formal orders granting interventionnone of which has occurred. Consequently, regardless of what captions and case numbers are placed on the brief covers, my position is that the parties should still include the following information in all of their briefs:

a) The identity of the individual or entity on whose behalf the brief is being filed;
b) The case name and number of each case in which that individual or entity has previously formally appeared; and
c) What issues that individual or entity is addressing and where those issues were previously raised in that individuals or entitys previous filings in one or more of the three proceedings.

Filed By: James B
Submit Date: 1-8-2015
Decision: (O) Other
Decision Date: 1-13-2015
ORD that each Unnamed Movant shall be permitted to reference and incorporate factual recitations and arguments contained in the briefs of other Unnamed Movants. The Unnamed Movants are encouraged, but not required, to file joint briefs with other Unnamed Movants if possible (i.e., if their factual recitations and arguments are aligned in full with certain other Unnamed Movants).
FRO that for each brief-in-chief or reply brief, the parties to these proceedings shall separately file an electronic copy of their original, unredacted brief and an electronic copy of the redacted version of their brief. The electronic copy of the original, unredacted brief shall be uploaded to the courts e-filing website as a text-searchable PDF file. The electronic copy of the redacted version of the brief shall be separately uploaded to the courts e-filing website as a PDF image (i.e., a PDF file that is not text-searchable). Each version of the brief--in both hard copy and electronic copy--shall state on the brief cover whether it is ORIGINAL (i.e., unredacted) or REDACTED. The electronic copy of the original, unredacted brief will be maintained under seal by the clerk of this court. The electronic copy of the redacted version of the brief will be subject to the same procedure used for hard copies of the redacted versions of the briefs, as set forth in the second full paragraph on page 5 of the courts December 16, 2014 order. If no objection to the redacted version is received pursuant to that procedure, at the same time that the clerk of this court places the hard copy of the redacted version of the brief into the public court file, the clerk of this court will also permit access to the electronic copy of the redacted version of the brief.

Court Order
IT IS ORDERED that counsel are advised that they should keep open on their calendars both April 17, 2015, and the afternoon of April 20, 2015. This instruction should not be interpreted as meaning that the court will definitely hear oral argument on both of those days, but at this point the court simply wants all counsel to keep those dates available for oral argument in these matters. The court will advise counsel at a later date whether the court will hold oral argument on one or both of those dates, as well as other specifics regarding oral argument, including whether the court desires that counsel address the issues presented in these matters in a particular order.
