In SDNY Baker McKenzie Bid To Seal Fee Records Is Rebuffed Under Lugosch

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 20 – The Fifth Avenue law firm of Baker McKenzie won an order for attorneys fees but then asked that its submission be sealed.

   Specifically, in a May 1 filing Baker McKenzie's Jacob M. Kaplan "request[ed] this Court's permission to submit unredacted versions of the detailed invoices under seal for the Court's in camera review."   

There is a problem, of course: transparency.

For example, Lugosch v. Pyramid Co. of Onondaga, 435 F.3d 110,  on the "presumption of public access to the sealed documents."

  On May 21 U.S. District Court for the South District of New York Magistrate Judge Gregory W. Gorenstein to his credit declined to agree to view in camera documents, or to seal them.

Inner City Press will continue to follow this case. It is KCG Holdings, Inc. et al v. Khandekar, 17-cv-3533 (Nathan / Gorenstein).
