Start Preamble April 24, 2009.

Take notice on April 15, 2009, PJM Interconnection, LLC (PJM) filed a motion requesting the Commission authorize the public release of currently non-public documents of BJ Energy, et al. that PJM filed as part of an answer and request for rehearing in this docket.[1] PJM represented that these documents are covered by a protective order issued by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.[2] PJM attached a copy of the District Court's March 26, 2009 order which provided that “[t]he court's Protective Order does not prohibit FERC from issuing an order declassifying documents submitted to this court under seal.” [3] On April 23, 2009, the BJ Energy, et al. filed an answer, requesting that the Commission deny PJM's motion and maintain the confidentiality of this information.

Pursuant to Rule 213(c)(5) of the Commission's regulations, 18 CFR 385.213 (c)(5), PJM is required to provide such documents to those parties whose interventions were accepted in the April 2, 2009 order[4] that request the documents and sign a protective order no less stringent than the one already approved by the District Court.
