Broadcom co-founder Henry Samueli is fighting to keep the public out of a pending hearing before the 9th Circuit in which he is seeking to reinstate a plea deal that he reached last year with prosecutors in a criminal backdating case. Briefs filed by Samueli and federal prosecutors appealing a district court judge's rejection of the deal have been sealed, and Samueli argues in a motion that the hearing should be closed to the public as well because much of the same information would be brought up during the hearing.
