Elon Musk’s SpaceX is suing the federal government again.
But this time, it wants its protest of a government contract to stay under seal, meaning its allegations would not become public.
In a motion filed with the Court of Federal Claims on Friday, the company said the privacy was necessary because the suit contains “confidential and proprietary information and source selection information not appropriate for release to the public.” SpaceX also filed its complaint against the government, with multiple exhibits attached, under seal.
Whether the complaint and other documents remain under seal will be up to the court. The Court of Federal Claims hears suits against the federal government including bid protests and contract claims.
