Hedge Fund Sued For Stealing Software Now Plaintiff Who Urged Sealing Has Discovery Complaint

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 22 – Samantha Siva Kumaran sued Northland Energy Trading LLC for allegedly keeping and using her risk hedging software - then she wanted many of the pleadings and exhibits kept secret and sealed.

  U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil held a proceeding on June 18.

Inner City Press covered it. Kumaran repeatedly asked to have forthcoming filings sealed. Judge Vyskocil to her credit said, That's not how it works in Federal court.  

  Well, it's not supposed to be how it works. 

   Ultimately Judge Vyskocil issued an order denying the motion to strike document from the record, and referring the plaintiff's motion for a protective order to Magistrate Judge Freeman.

 Now in January Kumaran has argued that defendants are not complying with their discovery obligations. On January 22 Magistrate Judge Freeman held a proceeding, and Innner City Press covered it.

The motions to compel and for sanctions were both denied, albeit without prejudice. Another conference was scheduled for February 4. Inner City Press will continue to cover this case. 

The case is Kumaran et al v. Northland Energy Trading, LLC et al., 19-cv-8345 (Vyskocil / Freeman).
