Yeah, It's been going on for a while, Sealed vs. Sealed. That politico story says this:

"However, a POLITICO reporter who visited the appeals court clerk's office on a day when a key filing in the dispute was due earlier this month observed a man request a copy of the special counsel's latest sealed filing so that the man's law firm could craft its response. The individual who asked for the secret filing declined to identify himself or his client and replied “I’m OK” when offered a reporter’s business card to remain in touch. Three hours later, a sealed response in the grand-jury dispute was submitted to the D.C. Circuit."

I can match that quoted part up with Sealed vs. Sealed story here from a week or two ago:

Sealed v. Sealed

What do we know about this case? Almost nothing. The entire district court docket is sealed, and although the circuit court dockets are publically available, all individual filings are sealed.

Why do some believe this case is related to the special counsel investigation? Writing in Politico, Josh Gerstein and Darren Samuelsohn lay out two reasons to believe this case is related to the special counsel investigation. First, a sealed response was filed in the case just three hours after Samuelsohn overheard a man request the special counsel’s latest sealed filing from the clerk’s office for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit clerk. Second, the only judge to recuse himself from the en banc panel hearing the appeal was Trump-appointed Judge Greg Katsas, who promised during his confirmation hearings to recuse himself from any cases related to the special counsel investigation due to his previous work in the White House Counsel’s Office.

Where does the case stand? The case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Aug. 16, 2018, where Chief Judge Beryl Howell ruled on Sept. 19. After the case was appealed up to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the appeals court quickly sent it back to the district court to resolve a procedural issue. The appeals court will hear oral arguments on Dec. 14, 2018.
