As of July 1, 2012, Circuit Advisory Committee Note to Rule 27-13 has been amended to include the underlined text below. This is the only substantive change to the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure (FRAP), Ninth Circuit Rules, and Circuit Advisory Committee Notes.
Absent an order to the contrary, any portion of the district court or agency record that was sealed below shall remain under seal upon transmittal to this Court. The Court does not automatically close oral argument to the public when briefs or the record have been filed under seal. A party seeking a closed hearing must move for such relief. (Rev. 7/1/12)
