PINE BLUFF DIVISION
ARKANSAS DEPARTMENT OF
It appears to this Court that Plaintiff in the present case has requested documents
containing confidential information, the release of which may constitute an unwarranted
invasion of privacy. Specifically, in response to Plaintiff’s discovery requests, Defendant
proposes to release the following subject to a protective order:
i) copies of the personnel files of Mario Wilson and Chris Phillips who are not
parties to the current action
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that any confidential information gained from the above,
as well as any documents photocopied or recorded from the above, may be used only in
connection with preparing and presenting Plaintiff’s case to this Court.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that any documents obtained by Plaintiff and her attorney
shall remain in the custody of Plaintiff and her attorney. Neither Plaintiff nor anyone acting for
or on Plaintiff’s behalf shall in any manner, directly or indirectly, transfer or communicate any of
the information or data obtained to any person not a party to this litigation other than for proper
purposes directly related to the trial of this action, and that any such person to whom such
communication is made is bound by the terms of this Order.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that at the conclusion of this litigation, neither Plaintiff nor
anyone acting for or on Plaintiff’s behalf shall in any manner, directly or indirectly, retain copies
of these documents, and Plaintiff shall return the documents to Defendant’s counsel. This does
not include Plaintiff’s counsel, however, who may retain a copy of these documents for the sole
purpose of defending themselves should their conduct in this lawsuit be called into question.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 24th day of February 2012.
