Arizona Superior Court, Yavapai County


[Plaintiff Name(s)],










Case No.




[Optional: NOT OPPOSED]



Assigned to the Hon. [Judge]




Pursuant to Ariz. R. Civ. P. 5.4(c) and (d) (Jan. 2018), [identification of moving party], by and through undersigned counsel, hereby respectfully requests the Court enter an Order authorizing the document(s) lodged herewith to be filed under seal. As required by Ariz. R. Civ. P. 5.4(e) (Jan. 2018), a complete, unredacted copy of the document(s) for which permission to file under seal is requested has been lodged with the court clerk [electronically/in paper form in a secured envelope].

[OPTIONAL: In addition, pursuant to Ariz. R. Civ. P. 5.4(d)(5) (Jan. 2018), a publicly accessible version of the document(s) is attached hereto as Exhibit A, redacting only those portions of the document(s) that are the subject of this Motion.]

This Motion is made upon the grounds and for the reasons that:

  1. an overriding interest exists that supports filing the [lodged document(s)/portions of the lodged document(s)] under seal and overcomes the public’s right of access;


  1. there is a substantial probability of prejudice to [identification of whether prejudice is to person filing the motion, or another person] if the [lodged document(s)/portions of document(s)] are not filed under seal;
  2. the proposed restriction on public access is no greater than necessary to preserve the confidentiality of information subject to the overriding interest;
  3. no reasonable, less restrictive alternative exists to preserve the confidentiality of the information. [State whether motion is opposed or unopposed, and if opposed, identify the opposing party].

This Motion is supported by the attached Memorandum of Points and Authorities [OPTIONAL: and Rule 7.1(h) good faith consultation certificate].
