The Parties represent that pretrial discovery in this case will 5 6 material describing the parties' respective lists of actual and potential customers, 8 employment agreements, schematic diagrams, confidential research, customer 9 invoices, third-party agreements, pricing and sales information, market surveys, 10 N ~, business of the parties or of third parties, and may require the production of 7 r or necessarily focus on matters that are confidential and proprietary to the ongoing confidential costs and manufacturing information, business plans and non-public 11 f inancial information and projections. 2 . Such information falls within recognized categories of information a ~; ~ a ~~ a Q 12 13 which may be protected from public disclosure through confidentiality x ~ u l4 designations under a Confidentiality Order in keeping with this Stipulation and 15 which may include non-public, proprietary, or confidential information that 16 constitutes or concerns trade secrets as defined by Cal. Civ. Code Secs.3426 et seq. 17 See Cal. Civ. Code § 3426.5 ("a court shall preserve the secrecy of an alleged trade 18 secret by reasonable means"). V ~U U ~, C° , r o pa n Oa W ho C,7 R ~D a~ C a oa~ a N ° o ~ ~ 19 3 . The Parties further represent that unrestricted disclosure of such 2 0 material poses a substantial risk of great economic harm in that discovery of a 21 party's trade secrets or other proprietary and confidential commercial information 22 would put the party at a competitive disadvantage and would be a windfall to the 23 discovering (competing) party. 2 4 4 . More specifically, good cause exists for this Court to enter the 25 Confidentiality Order because it allows the parties to disclose documents in the 2 6 litigation of this matter without suffering from an economic and business detrimen~ 27 that would result from the disclosure of "Confidential" or "Highly Confidential - 28 Attorneys' Eyes Only" material. The disclosure of any "Confidential" or "Highly -2STIPULATION FOR ORDER GOVERNING THE DESIGNATION AND HANDLING OF CONFIDENTIAL MATERIALS 1 Confidential —Attorneys' Eyes Only" material would harm the parties financially 2 and result in loss of business opportunities because the parties' competitors would 3 gain an unfair advantage over the parties if they learn the parties' "Confidential" or 4 " Highly Confidential —Attorneys' Eyes Only" material. The Parties themselves 5 are competitors. This material should be protected because it may reveal the 6 parties' current financial status, business strategies, business structure, research 7 and development activities, customer lists and customer information and future 8 opportunities and business plans. 5. 9 Moreover, entry of the Confidentiality Order will permit the parties to 10 r or N ~ a = `° ~ ~~ , be more forthcoming in the exchange of confidential information, which may 11 facilitate resolution of this case. 12 6. For the foregoing reasons, good cause exists for entry of a stipulation d 13 f an order governing the designation and handling of confidential materials to or „7 y u a ,', U ~ ,`~, vl o Cq Ga 14 facilitate pretrial disclosure while assuring the safety ofthese sensitive disclosures. V ~ U 7 . 15 The Parties acknowledge that the Confidentiality Order does not W u ~ ' R ~0 V 16 a Ca ~ N y b confer blanket protections on all disclosures or responses to discovery and that the 17 protection it affords extends only to the limited information or items that are 18 entitled under the applicable legal principles to treatment as confidential. The 19 Parties further acknowledge, as set forth in Section 10 (Filing Protected Material) 2 0 below, that the Confidentiality Order creates no entitlement to file confidential 21 information under seal; rather, Civil Local Rule 79-5 sets forth the procedures to 22 be followed and the standards to be applied when a party seeks permission from 23 the Court to file material under seal. 4 2 2 . ~ 25 Definitions 2 .1 etP .

A Designating Party must 4 take care to designate for protection only those parts of material, documents, items, 5 or oral or written communications that qualify — so that other portions of the 6 material, documents, items, or communications for which protection is not 7 warranted are not swept unjustifiably within the ambit of the Confidentiality Order. 8 Indiscriminate designations are prohibited. Designations that are shown to 9 be clearly unjustified, or that have been made for an improper purpose (e.g., to 10 unnecessarily encumber or retard the case development process, or to impose ~ o~ 11 unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties), expose the Designating Party N a = ~° a °° 12 to sanctions. ~ ~Q 13 If it comes to a Party's or anon-party's attention that information or items x~~ 14 that it designated for protection do not qualify for protection at all, or do not Wu g 15 qualify for the level of protection initially asserted, that Party or non-party must a~~ a N 7 16 promptly notify all other parties that it is withdrawing the mistaken designation. ~ .~ . 17 V ~. U U o ~ ~~~ V ~ ~o 5.2 Manner and Timing of Designations. Except as otherwise provided in 18 this Stipulation (see, e.g., second paragraph of Section 5.2(a), below), or as 19 otherwise stipulated or ordered, material that qualifies for protection under this 2 0 Stipulation must be clearly so designated before or at the time that the material is 21 disclosed or produced. 22 23 Designation in conformity with this Stipulation requires: ( a) for information in documentary form (apart from transcripts of 24 depositions or other pretrial or trial proceedings), that the Producing Party affix the 25 legend "Confidential" or "Highly Confidential —Attorneys' Eyes Only" at the top 2 6 of each page that contains protected material. The abbreviated designation 27 " Attorneys' Eyes Only" is also permitted as a substitute for "Highly Confidential28 Attorneys' Eyes Only". If only a portion or portions of the material on a page -6STIPULATION FOR ORDER GOVERNING THE DESIGNATION AND HANDLING OF CONFIDENTIAL MATERIALS 1 qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the 2 protected portions) (e.g., by making appropriate markings in the margins) and 3 must specify, for each portion, the level of protection being asserted (either 4 " Confidential" or "Highly Confidential —Attorneys' Eyes Only"). 5 A Party that makes documents or materials available for inspection need not 6 designate them for protection until after the inspecting Party has indicated which 7 material it would like copied and produced. During the inspection and before the 8 designation, all of the material made available for inspection shall be deemed 9 " Highly Confidential —Attorneys' Eyes Only." After the inspecting Party has 10 r o ~ N ~ a ~~ a ~~ a V ~U identified the documents it wants copied and produced, the Producing Party must 11 determine which documents, or portions thereof, qualify for protection under the 12 Confidentiality Order, then, before producing the specified documents, the 13 Producing Party must affix the appropriate legend ("Confidential" or "Highly 14 Confidential —Attorneys' Eyes Only") at the top of each page that contains v~ o ~p Oa w ~ o 15 Protected Material. If only a portion or portions of the material on a page qualifies v ~~ a °° 16 f protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the protected or 17 portions)(e.g., by making appropriate markings in the margins) and must specify, 18 f each portion, the level of protection being asserted (either "Confidential" or or S=„ ea U ~ r p„ ~ ~ N O 19 " Highly Confidential —Attorneys' Eyes Only"). 2 0 ( b) for information produced by non-parties. Should the parties in 21 this case issue any subpoenas to non-parties, the parties agree that any non-parties 22 served with a subpoena may designate as Protected Material any appropriate 23 materials responsive to such a subpoena, and further, the parties may notify any 24 other non-party served with a subpoena in this case of a stipulation for an order 25 governing the designation and handling of confidential materials. 2 6 Additionally, in the event a Party seeks information via subpoena from a 27 non-party, and another Party to this action (the "Non-Discovering Party") believes 28 that such subpoena may compel disclosure of documents and things of or -7STIPULATION FOR ORDER GOVERNING THE DESIGNATION AND HANDLING OF CONFIDENTIAL MATERIALS 1 concerning that Non-Discovering Party that ought to be designated as Protected 2 Material, the Non-Discovering Party promptly shall notify in writing the Party 3 serving such subpoena. In a circumstance where such written notice is received, 4 the Party serving the subpoena shall advise the Non-Discovering Party in writing 5 upon its receipt of documents or things from the subpoenaed third party, and make 6 such documents or things available for inspection by the Non-Discovering Party. 7 The Non-Discovering Party shall then have ten (10) days to inspect and designate ,I 8 such documents for protection in accordance with the Confidentiality Order. 9 Pending such designation, or the expiration of the ten (10) day period allowed 10 herein for such designation (whichever first occurs), the Party receiving documents r or 11 and things shall treat all of them as "Highly Confidential —Attorneys' Eyes Only." a ~0 a a~ iv 12 The provisions of Section 5.2(a) shall otherwise apply to documents produced by 13 non-parties. x ~~ ~ ~oa W u o v ~~ Q a ~ '' 14 N ~ ~d ~ N (c) for testimonygiven in deposition, that the Party or non-party 15 offering or sponsoring the testimony identify on the record, before the close of the 16 deposition, all protected testimony, and further specify any portions of the 1 / testimony that qualify as "Confidential" or "Highly Confidential —Attorneys' Eyes 18 Only." When it is impractical to identify separately each portion of testimony that 19 is entitled to protection, and when it appears that substantial portions of the r J , ~ . .~ 2 testimony may qualify for protection, the Party or non-party that sponsors, offers, 0 2i or gives the testimony may invoke on the record (before the deposition is 22 concluded) a right to have up to thirty days after the transcript of the deposition 23 becomes available to identify the specific portions of the testimony as to which 24 protection is sought and to specify the level of protection being asserted 25 ( "Confidential" or "Highly Confidential —Attorneys' Eyes Only"). Only those 2 6 portions ofthe testimony that are appropriately designated for protection within the 27 thirty days shall be covered by the provisions of the Confidentiality Order. Any 28 such testimony that qualifies as "Confidential" or "Highly Confidential — -8STIPULATION FOR ORDER GOVERNING THE DESIGNATION AND HANDLING OF CONFIDENTIAL MATERIALS 1 Attorneys' Eyes Only" given in a court hearing or proceeding shall be addressed 2 by the judicial officer conducting the proceeding at the appropriate time. ( d) 3 for information produced in some form other than documentary, 4 and for any other tangible items, that the Producing Party affix in a prominent 5 place on the exterior of the container or containers in which the information or 6 item is stored the legend "Confidential" or "Highly Confidential -Attorneys' Eyes 7 Only." 8 Producing Pariy, to the extent practicable, shall identify the protected portions, If only portions of the information or item warrant protection, the 9 specifying whether they qualify as "Confidential" or as "Highly Confidential 10 r o~ N ~ a = ~O a te ,° Attorneys' Eyes Only." 5.3 11 Inadvertent Failures to Designate. If timely corrected, an inadvertent 12 f ailure to designate qualified information or items as "Confidential" or "Highly 13 Confidential -Attorneys' Eyes Only" does not, standing alone, waive the x =~ 14 Designating Party's right to secure protection under the Confidentiality Order for W ho 15 such material. If material is appropriately designated as "Confidential" or "Highly 16 Confidential -Attorneys' Eyes Only" after the material was initially produced, the 17 Receiving Party, on timely notification of the designation, must make reasonable 18 efforts to assure that the material is treated in accordance with the provisions of 19 this Order. 20 6 . V a U U o „ ~ ~~ v ~~ Q ~~ ~N ~ ~ ~ "x ' . . 21 Challen~in~ Confidentiality Designations 6.1 Timing of ChallenLes. Unless a prompt challenge to a Designating ~ 2 2 Party's confidentiality designation is necessary to avoid foreseeable substantial 23 unfairness, unnecessary economic burdens, or a later significant disruption or delay 24 of the litigation, a Party does not waive its right to challenge a confidentiality 25 designation by electing not to mount a challenge promptly after the original 2 6 designation is disclosed. 27 28 6.2 Meet and Confer. A Party that elects to initiate a challenge to a Designating Party's confidentiality designation must do so in good faith and must -9STIPULATION FOR ORDER GOVERNING THE DESIGNATION AND HANDLING OF CONFIDENTIAL MATERIALS 1 comply with the meet and confer requirements and procedures set forth in Civil 2 Local Rule 37-1 and 37-2 3 proceeding shall be on the Designating Party in a manner consistent with Federal 4 Rule of Civil Procedure 26(c). Until the Court rules on the challenge, all parties 5 shall continue to afford the material in question the level of protection designated The burden of persuasion in any such challenge by the Producing Party. 7 8 7 . Access to and Use of Protected Material 7 .1 Basic Principles. A Receiving Pariy may use Protected Material that 9 is disclosed or produced by another Party or by a non-party in connection with this 10 case only for prosecuting, defending, or attempting to settle this litigation.
