Court agrees to seal certain documents in Hunt v. Zuffa
February 13, 2017
The U.S. Magistrate in the Hunt v. Zuffa, LLC, et al. case has granted Mark Hunt’s request to seal documents in his lawsuit. The ruling means that the general public will not be able to view certain documents.
The purpose of the seal according to plaintiff as noted in the order was to “allow him [Hunt] to proceed with this action while not violating the confidentiality agreement.”
When Hunt filed his lawsuit, certain exhibits attached were not included as he was requesting to file them under seal. He claims that he signed a confidentiality agreement and filing the documents without a request to seal might be a violation of the agreement.
What the order means is that the public will not be able to see certain contracts Hunt entered into with Zuffa, LLC. This is unfortunate for the public as it would show what type of contract Hunt signed to fight Lesnar as well as other agreements he had with the company.
