In a new filing, Katherine once again pleads for the documents to be sealed. She did reveal the objection is related to a “private family matter.”

Her attorney said Katherine’s filing referenced the “financial circumstances and matters of the Proposed Transaction, which are sensitive and not publicly known.”

Her attorney said without a sealing Order, “Ms. Jackson would almost certainly suffer a serious invasion of her privacy.”

The judge has yet to rule on the matter.
