Plaintiff and Counterdefendant Frank Nemirofsky's Motion to Dismiss Defendants'
Counterclaim relates to an agreement between Defendant and Counterclaimant STV Asia, Ltd. ("STV") and PRN Corporation ("PRN"). This agreement includes the following provision: "The parties agree that the terms of this Agreement will be treated as confidential and maintained in confidence and will not be disclosed to any other person . . . . " STV would be in violation of its obligations under the agreement if Counterclaimants were to file their Opposition to Counterdefendant's Motion to Dismiss without portions shielded from the public. 3. On October 10, 2007, I called Mr. Nemirofsky's counsel, Robyn Callahan, to inquire
about stipulating to the filing of a portion of Counterclaimants' Opposition to Counterdefendant's Motion to Dismiss under seal. Ms. Callahan did not pick up her phone, so I left her a voicemail. I have not heard back from Ms. Callahan. However, it is reasonable to assume that Mr. Nemirofsky would agree to the filing of a portion of the Opposition under seal, since throughout this litigation all parties have filed portions of documents relating to the STV-PRN agreement under seal. I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct, and that this declaration is executed in San Francisco, California on October 10, 2007.
