UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff - Appellee, v. John DOE, Defendant - Appellant.
Decided: August 04, 2020
Before KING, AGEE, and HARRIS, Circuit Judges.
John Doe, Appellant Pro Se.
John Doe appeals the district court's order denying his motion to seal. While this appeal was pending, we set forth the relevant standard to apply and the interests to consider when addressing motions such as Doe's. See United States v. Doe, 962 F.3d 139, 145-53 (4th Cir. 2020). The district court did not have the benefit of our decision in Doe when ruling on Doe's motion. Accordingly, we vacate the district court's order and remand for reconsideration in light of Doe. We deny Doe's motions to seal the courtroom, to hold oral argument, and to appoint counsel. We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
VACATED AND REMANDED
Vacated and remanded by unpublished per curiam opinion.
Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit.
