“This is a courtroom of the people of the United States; there is no trial in secret.”

We’ve just begun day two of the Epic v. Google trial.

The quote is Judge James Donato telling lawyers for Activision, Amazon, and (absent today) Nintendo that he’s not inclined to seal some exhibits they want to seal — instead, he’s asking Epic to work things out with each of them right now, in the courtroom hallway, before Epic tries to present those exhibits at trial.

Judge Donato is inclined to let Google seal the names of some companies it’s in “active negotiation” with.
