SURFWARE, INC., a California 19 Corporation, 20 21
22 CELERITIVE TECHNOLOGIES, INC., an Arizona Corporation, TERRY SORENSON, Complaint Filed: October 14, 2008 23 an individual, GLENN COLEMAN, an individual, EVAN SHERBROOKE, an 24 individual and DOES 1-10, 25 26 27 28
AND RELATED COUNTERCLAIM.
Plaintiff Surfware, Inc. ("Surfware") and Counterclaim Defendant Stephen
2 Diehl, and Defendants Celeritive Technologies, Inc., Terry Sorensen, Glenn Coleman, and 3 Evan Sherbrooke (collectively "Celeritive") each have information relevant to the subject 4 matter of this lawsuit that is subject to discovery but which the parties agree should not be 5 disclosed to the public generally or, in some cases, to the requesting party. For the reasons 6 set forth in the "Good Cause Statement" herein and after review of the Court's Order Re: 7 Protective Orders and Treatment of Confidential Information, the parties have agreed to 8 this Protective Order on the terms set forth below. It appearing to the Court that the parties 9 have agreed to the terms of an appropriate Protective Order to govern discovery and 10 pretrial proceedings and settlement negotiations in this action , and have demonstrated 11 good cause for the entry of such Protective Order: 12 13 14 STATEMENT OF GOOD CAUSE This case involves, inter alia, an alleged misappropriation of trade secrets
15 relating to computer aided milling technology including source code, confidential product 16 development information, and customer lists. All parties to this suit may have non -public 17 documents, information, and other materials in their possession, custody, or control 18 pertaining to this technology that will be subject to discovery herein. Some of these items 19 are highly sensitive and confidential because they contain information which, if released to 20 the public or to a competitor, would cause harm to the parties' business and competitive 21 interests. This material containing sensitive information includes software source code, 22 software architecture materials, research and development records, confidential business 23 and marketing plans, confidential customer lists and related customer information, 24 confidential sales records and financial data. The parties have jointly drafted this proposed 25 protective order, which the parties respectfully seek to be entered by the Court, in order to 26 prevent harmful disclosure of their confidential and sensitive business and technical 27 28
1 information, while balancing the public's right to acquire information that properly falls 2 outside the scope of the parties' protectable, confidential interests. 3 The parties agree that disclosure of information designated as Confidential-
4 Attorneys Eyes Only as set forth herein could put the producing party at a competitive 5 disadvantage if the information became known to the receiving party. The parties further 6 agree that adoption and adherence to this Protective Order will facilitate an orderly and 7 cost-effective discovery process and preparation for trial or settlement and that the 8 Confidential Information will not be used for any purpose that is not directly related to this 9 litigation. 10 11 12 13 1. This Order shall apply to all information produced during discovery and IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
14 settlement negotiations in this action that shall be designated by the party or person 15 producing "Confidential" or "Confidential-Attorneys Eyes Only" (collectively 16 "Confidential Information"). This Order shall not apply to information that, before 17 disclosure, is properly in the possession or knowledge of the party to whom such 18 disclosure is made, or is public knowledge. The restrictions contained in this Order shall 19 not apply to information that is, or after disclosure becomes, public knowledge other than 20 by an act or omission of the party to whom such disclosure is made, or that is legally 21 acquired from a source not subject to this Order. 22 2. If an exhibit; pleading; interrogatory answer or admission (collectively
23 "discovery response"); document or thing; or a deposition transcript; other transcript of 24 testimony, or declaration or affidavit (collectively "testimony") contains information 25 considered confidential by a party, such exhibit, pleading, discovery response, document 26 or thing, or testimony shall be designated "Confidential" or "Confidential-Attorneys Eyes 27 Only" by the party contending there is Confidential Information therein. 28
In connection with an exhibit, pleading, discovery response, document; or
2 thing, testimony or other court submission, the legend "Confidential" or "Confidential3 Attorneys Eyes Only" shall be affixed before the production or service upon a party. 4 4. As a general guideline, a document should be designated "Confidential"
5 when it contains confidential technical or other information that may be reviewed by the 6 receiving party, technical experts, and other party representatives, but must be protected 7 against disclosure to third parties or to the general public. A document may be designated 8 "Confidential-Attorneys Eyes Only" only when it contains highly sensitive information, 9 not publicly available or readily ascertained through public means, that if disclosed would 10 put the producing party at a competitive disadvantage, including without limitation the 11 following: financial information; cost information ; pricing information; sales information; 12 customer lists; licenses; supplier and vendor information; technical and developmental 13 information about a party's products; business plans; marketing strategy; new product 14 plans and competitive strategies; and trade secrets, as that term is defined in California 15 Civil code § 3426.1, which is incorporated herein by this reference. 16 5. All Confidential Information that has been obtained from a party during the
17 course of this proceeding shall be used only for the purpose of this litigation and not for 18 any other business purpose, proceeding, litigation, or other purpose whatsoever. Further 19 such information may not be disclosed to anyone except as provided in this Order. 20 Counsel for a party may give advice and opinions to their client based on evaluation of 21 information produced by the other party and designated as "Confidential - Attorneys Eyes 22 Only" provided that such rendering of advice and opinions shall not reveal the content of 23 such information except by prior agreement with opposing counsel. 24 6. Except as otherwise agreed in writing, all documents, or any portion thereof,
25 produced for inspection only (i.e., copies have not yet been provided to the receiving 26 party) shall be deemed "Confidential-Attorneys Eyes Only." If a copy of any such 27 document is requested after inspection, the document shall be deemed "Confidential" or 28
1 "Confidential-Attorneys Eyes Only" only if labeled or marked in conformity with 2 paragraph 3, with access and dissemination limited as set forth in paragraphs 10-14. 3 7. Information disclosed at a deposition or other testimony may be designated
4 as "Confidential" or "Confidential-Attorneys Eyes Only" at the time of the testimony or 5 deposition, or within fourteen (14) days following receipt of the transcript, and shall be 6 subject to the provisions of this Order. Additional information disclosed during a 7 deposition or other testimony may be designated as "Confidential" or "Confidential8 Attorneys Eyes Only" by notifying the other party, in writing, within fourteen (14) days 9 after receipt of the transcript, of the specific pages of the transcript that should also be so 10 designated. Unless otherwise agreed on the record of the deposition or other testimony , 11 all transcripts shall be treated as "Confidential-Attorneys Eyes Only" for a period of 12 fourteen (14) days after their receipt, and the transcript shall not be disclosed by a non13 designating party to persons other than those persons named or approved according to 14 paragraphs 10-14 to review documents or materials designated "Confidential-Attorneys 15 Eyes Only" on behalf of that non-designating party. 16 8. The parties further acknowledge that this Stipulated protective order creates
17 no entitlement to file confidential information under seal; the applicable Federal Rules, 18 local rules (including Local Rule 79-5) and other applicable Federal or State statutory law 19 and rules shall be followed in the event a party seeks permission from the Court to file 20 material under seal, seal a trial or hearing in this matter, or otherwise restrict non-party 21 access to these proceedings. 22 9. As used in this Protective Order, "Trial Counsel" refers exclusively to the

Nothing in this paragraph limits the use of executable versions of the 21 parties' respective software applications (i.e., other than source code). 22 13. Any officer, director or designated employee of any party under paragraph
23 10(a) having access to Confidential Information shall be given a copy of this Order before 24 being shown such Confidential Information, and its provisions shall be explained to them 25 by an attorney. Each person, before having access to the Confidential Information, shall 26 agree not to disclose to anyone any Confidential Information not exempted by this Order 27 and not to make use of any such Confidential Information other than solely for purpose of 28
1 this litigation, and shall acknowledge in writing by signing a document in the form of 2 Exhibit A attached hereto. 3 14. For the purpose of this Protective Order an independent expert or consultant
4 shall be defined as a person, who is not an employee of a party or scheduled to become an 5 employee in the near future, and who is retained or employed as a bona fide consultant or 6 expert for purposes of this litigation, either full or part-time, by or at the direction of 7 counsel of a party. The procedure for having an independent expert or consultant 8 approved for access to information designated as "Confidential" or "Confidential9 Attorneys Eyes Only" shall be as follows: 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28
The party seeking to have an independent expert or consultant, as
defined in paragraph 14, approved shall provide the producing party with: (1) (2) (3) (4) The name of the person; The present employer and title of the person; An up-to-date curriculum vitae; and A written acknowledgment in the form of Exhibit A attached hereto, signed by the person for whom approval is sought, that the person has read this Stipulated Protective Order and agrees to be bound by its terms. b. Within seven (7) calendar days after delivery of a copy of the
information and the written acknowledgment described in Paragraph 14(a), the producing party may object to the person proposed for approval upon a reasonable basis. Failure to object within seven (7) calendar days to the person proposed shall be deemed approval, but shall not preclude a producing party from later objecting to continued access by that person where facts suggesting a basis for objection are subsequently learned by the producing party or its counsel. If objection is made, the "Confidential" or "Confidential-Attorneys Eyes Only" Information shall not be disclosed to the
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28
designated person except by order of the Court, agreement by the parties or failure to file a timely motion pursuant to paragraph 14(c). c. If the parties are unable to reach agreement over the disclosure of
material and information designated as "Confidential " or "ConfidentialAttorneys Eyes Only" to the designated person, producing party shall request by motion that the Court issue an order precluding the disclosure of such material and information to the designated person. Barring exigent circumstances, any such motion will be made in strict compliance with Local Rules 37-1 and 37-2. The "Confidential" or "Confidential-Attorneys Eyes Only" information may be disclosed if the producing party fails to move the Court for an appropriate order pursuant to the Local Rules of this district within three weeks of the date of the producing party's objection. If-the producing party timely files a motion with the court for an appropriate order, the "Confidential" or "Confidential -Attorneys Eyes Only" information may not be disclosed to the designated person unless and until the Court denies the producing party's motion. These time periods are not to restrict either party from moving for a Court order earlier if the circumstances so require, but such expedited request must be made pursuant to the Local Rules of this district. Since the producing party contends that the information in question should not be disclosed publicly, at a minimum, the parties shall file the Joint Stipulation required by the Local Rules of this district under seal. The parties may file a stipulation to that effect or the moving party may file an ex parte application making the appropriate request. The parties shall set forth good cause in the stipulation or ex parte application as to why the Joint Stipulation or portions thereof should be filed under seal. d. It is understood and agreed that if, pursuant to this Order, a party
identifies a person as an expert, no other party shall contact the expert nor
1 2 3 4 15.
subject the expert to discovery to inquire into matters arising within the expert's consultation with the designating party, except as provided by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(b)(4) or by Order of the Court. Any Confidential Information may be used in the course of any deposition
5 taken of the party producing such Confidential Information or its employees without 6 consent, or otherwise used in any deposition with the consent of the party producing such 7 Confidential Information, subject to the condition that when such Confidential Information 8 is so used, the party who made the designation may notify the reporter that portions of the 9 deposition are designated as Confidential or Confidential-Attorneys' Eyes Only pursuant to 10 this Order. When it is impractical to identify separately each portion of testimony that is 11 entitled to protection, the party or non-party that sponsors, offers, or gives the testimony 12 may invoke on the record (before the deposition or proceeding is concluded) a right to 13 have up to 14 days after receipt of the transcript to identify the specific portions of the 14 testimony as to which protection is sought and to specify the level of protection being 15 asserted. Only those portions of the testimony that are appropriately designated for 16 protection within the 14 days shall be covered by the provisions of this Stipulated 17 Protective Order. Further, whenever any Confidential Information is to be discussed or 18 disclosed in a deposition, any party claiming such confidentiality may exclude from the 19 room any person not entitled to receive such confidential information pursuant to the terms 20 of this Order. 21 16. A party shall not be obligated to challenge the propriety of a designation as
22 "Confidential" or "Confidential-Attorneys Eyes Only" at the time made, and a failure to do 23 so shall not preclude a subsequent challenge. In the event that any party to this litigation 24 disagrees at any stage of these proceedings with the designation by the designating party or 25 non-party of any information as "Confidential" or "Confidential-Attorneys Eyes Only" the 26 parties and any producing non-party shall first try to resolve such disagreement in good 27 faith on an informal basis, such as by production of redacted copies. If the disagreement 28
1 cannot be resolved on an informal basis, the objecting party may move the Court for an 2 Order modifying the designated status of such information. Any such motion will be made 3 in strict compliance with Local Rules 37-1 and 37-2. Until the Court rules on the 4 challenge, all parties shall continue to afford the material in question the level of protection 5 to which it is entitled under the challenged designation. In the event of any dispute as to 6 the propriety of a redaction, the party objecting to the redaction may submit the issue to the 7 Court for review pursuant to the Local Rules of this district. 8 17. Notwithstanding anything contrary herein, if a party through inadvertence or
9 mistake produces any Confidential Information without marking it with the legend 10 "Confidential" or "Confidential--Attorneys Eyes Only" or by designating it with an 11 incorrect level of confidentiality, the producing party may give written notice to the 12 receiving party that the exhibit, pleading, discovery response, document or thing, or 13 testimony contains Confidential Information and should be treated as such in accordance 14 with the provisions of this Protective Order. Upon receipt of such notice, and upon receipt 15 of properly marked materials, the receiving party shall return said unmarked materials and 16 not retain copies thereof, and must treat such exhibits, pleadings, discovery responses, 17 documents or things, or transcript testimony as Confidential Information and shall 18 cooperate in restoring the confidentiality of such Confidential Information. The 19 inadvertent or unintentional disclosure by a party of Confidential Information, regardless 20 of whether the information was so designated at the time of disclosure, shall not be deemed 21 a waiver in whole or in part of a party's claim of confidentiality either as to the specific 22 information disclosed or as to any other information relating thereto or on the same or 23 related subject matter, provided that the non-producing party is notified and properly 24 marked documents are supplied as provided herein. The receiving party shall not be 25 responsible for the disclosure or other distribution of belatedly designated Confidential 26 Information as to such disclosure or distribution that may occur before the receipt of such 27 notification of a claim of confidentiality and such disclosure or distribution shall not be 28
1 deemed to be a violation of this Protective Order. In the event of any dispute as to the 2 designation pursuant to this paragraph shall be resolved in accordance with paragraph 16. 3 18. In the event the producing party produces any information deemed
4 Confidential Information of the receiving party without marking it with the legend 5 "Confidential" or "Confidential--Attorneys Eyes Only" or by designating it with an 6 incorrect level of confidentiality, the receiving party may give written notice to the 7 producing party that the exhibit, pleading, discovery response, document or thing, or 8 testimony contains Confidential Information and should be treated as such in accordance 9 with the provisions of this Protective Order. Upon receipt of such notice, and upon receipt 10 of properly marked materials, the producing party shall destroy said unmarked or 11 inappropriately marked materials and not retain copies thereof, and must treat such 12 exhibits, pleadings, discovery responses, documents or things, or transcript testimony as 13 Confidential Information and shall cooperate in restoring the confidentiality of such 14 Confidential Information. The disclosure by a party of Confidential Information, 15 regardless of whether the information was so designated at the time of disclosure, shall not 16 be deemed a waiver in whole or in part of a party's claim of confidentiality either as to the 17 specific information disclosed or as to any other information relating thereto or on the 18 same or related subject matter. In the event of any dispute as to the designation pursuant to 19 this paragraph shall be resolved in accordance with paragraph 16. 20 19. Documents and things produced or made available for inspection may be
21 subject to redaction, in good faith by the producing party, of sensitive material that is 22 neither relevant to the subject of this litigation nor reasonably calculated to lead to the 23 discovery of admissible evidence, is subject to the attorney-client privilege, work-product 24 immunity or is protected by a third party's privacy rights. Each such redaction, regardless 25 of size, will be clearly labeled. This paragraph shall not be construed as a waiver of any 26 party's right to seek disclosure of redacted information. 27 28
If information subject to a claim of attorney-client privilege or work-product
2 is inadvertently produced, such production shall in no way prejudice or otherwise 3 constitute a waiver of, or estoppel as to, any such claim. If a party has inadvertently 4 produced information subject to a claim of immunity or privilege, upon request, such 5 information shall be returned promptly and, if a document, all copies of that document 6 shall be destroyed. The party returning such information may move the Court for an Order 7 pursuant to Local Rules 37-1 and 37-2, compelling production of such information, but the 8 motion shall not assert as a ground for production the fact that the information was 9 inadvertently produced. 10 21. It is not the intention of this Protective Order to fully address discovery
11 objections to produce, answer, or respond on the grounds of attorney-client privilege or 12 work product, nor to preclude either party from seeking further relief or protective orders 13 from the Court as may be appropriate under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. 14 22. Neither the taking or the failure to take any action to enforce the provisions
15 of this Order, nor the failure to object to any designation or any such action or omission, 16 shall constitute a waiver of any signatory's right to seek and obtain protection or relief, 17 with respect to any claim or defense in this action or any other action including, but not 18 limited to, the claim or defense that any information is or is not proprietary to any party, is 19 or is not entitled to particular protection or that such information embodies trade secret or 20 other confidential information of any party. The procedures set forth herein shall not 21 affect the rights of the parties to object to discovery, nor shall it relieve a party of the 22 necessity of proper responses to discovery requests. 23 23. This Order shall not abrogate or diminish any contractual, statutory, or other
24 legal obligation or right of any party to this Order, as to any third party, with respect to any 25 Confidential Information. The fact that Information is designated "Confidential" or 26 "Confidential-Attorneys Eyes Only" under this Order shall not be deemed to be 27 determinative of what a trier of fact may determine to be confidential, proprietary or of a 28
1 trade secret nature. This Order shall be without prejudice to the right of any party to bring 2 before the Court the question of: 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 24. c. b. a. whether any particular information is or is not Confidential Information; whether any particular information is or is not entitled to a greater or lesser degree of protection than provided hereunder; or whether any particular information is or is not relevant to any issue in this case, provided that in doing so the party complies with the foregoing procedures. The terms of the Protective Order are applicable to Confidential Information
11 produced and appropriately designated by a nonparty, and Confidential Information 12 produced by a non-party connection with this litigation is protected by the remedies and 13 relief provided by the Protective Order. To protect its own Confidential Information, a 14 party may ask a non-party to execute a document in the form of Exhibit A. 15 25. Unless otherwise ordered or agreed in writing, within one-hundred (100)
16 days after final determination of this litigation, all information designated as Confidential 17 Information, except such documents or information which incorporate or are incorporated 18 into attorney work product (a single copy of which may be retained in counsel's file), 19 shall, upon request, be returned to the producing party, or disposed of pursuant to the 20 instructions of the producing party. Final termination shall mean the exhaustion of all time 21 periods for appeal following the entry of judgment or dismissal as to all parties and all 22 claims. 23 24 25 //// 26 //// 27 //// 28
