Oliver’s Procedures. -1STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 2 GOMEZ individually and in their official capacity and DOES 1-10 inclusive, Defendants. 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 1. A. ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS Discovery in this action is likely to involve production of confidential, proprietary or private information for which special protection from public disclosure and from use for any purpose other than prosecuting this litigation may be warranted. Accordingly, the parties hereby stipulate to and petition the Court to enter the following Stipulated Protective Order. The parties acknowledge that this Order does not confer blanket protections on all disclosures or responses to discovery, and that the protection it affords from public disclosure and use extends only to the limited information or items that are entitled to confidential treatment under the applicable legal principles. B. GOOD CAUSE STATEMENT The parties submit that GOOD CAUSE exists to enter the proposed protective order to balance the defendants’ concerns that the documents consist of confidential, private, and privileged information concerning the parties to this litigation as well as third parties who are not parties to this litigation. Furthermore, this proposed protective order was created for the purpose of protecting certain information that may be subject to the official information privilege, law enforcement privilege and the right to privacy, as protected by the California and United States Constitution, as well as to prevent against the broadcast or dissemination of videotaped deposition testimony by any party, balanced with plaintiffs’ right to discovery in this litigation. The parties agree that all documents, tangible things, and videos marked confidential and produced pursuant to this protective order are subject to the terms of this protective unless otherwise ordered -2STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 by the Court. 2 Accordingly, to expedite the flow of information, to facilitate the prompt 3 resolution of disputes over confidentiality of discovery materials, to adequately 4 protect information the parties are entitled to keep confidential, to ensure that the 5 parties are permitted reasonable necessary uses of such material in preparation for 6 and in the conduct of trial, to address their handling at the end of the litigation, and 7 serve the ends of justice, a protective order for such information is justified in this 8 matter. It is the intent of the parties that information will not be designated as 9 confidential for tactical reasons and that nothing be so designated without a good 10 faith belief that it has been maintained in a confidential, non-public manner, and 11 there is good cause why it should not be part of the public record of this case. 12 13 14 C. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF PROCEDURE FOR FILING UNDER SEAL The parties further acknowledge, as set forth in Section 12.3, below, that this 15 Stipulated Protective Order does not entitle them to file confidential information 16 under seal; Local Civil Rule 79-5 sets forth the procedures that must be followed 17 and the standards that will be applied when a party seeks permission from the court 18 to file material under seal. 19 There is a strong presumption that the public has a right of access to judicial 20 proceedings and records in civil cases. In connection with non-dispositive 21 motions, good cause must be shown to support a filing under seal. See Kamakana 22 v. City and County of Honolulu, 447 F.3d 1172, 1176 (9th Cir. 2006), Phillips v. 23 Gen. Motors Corp., 307 F.3d 1206, 1210-11 (9th Cir. 2002), Makar-Welbon v. 24 Sony Electrics, Inc., 187 F.R.D. 576, 577 (E.D. Wis. 1999) (even stipulated 25 protective orders require good cause showing), and a specific showing of good 26 cause or compelling reasons with proper evidentiary support and legal justification, 27 must be made with respect to Protected Material that a party seeks to file under 28 seal. The parties’ mere designation of Disclosure or Discovery Material as -3STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 CONFIDENTIAL does not—without the submission of competent evidence by 2 declaration, establishing that the material sought to be filed under seal qualifies as 3 confidential, privileged, or otherwise protectable—constitute good cause. 4 Further, if a party requests sealing related to a dispositive motion or trial, then 5 compelling reasons, not only good cause, for the sealing must be shown, and the 6 relief sought shall be narrowly tailored to serve the specific interest to be protected. 7 See Pintos v. Pacific Creditors Ass’n, 605 F.3d 665, 677-79 (9th Cir. 2010). For 8 each item or type of information, document, or thing sought to be filed or 9 introduced under seal in connection with a dispositive motion or trial, the party 10 seeking protection must articulate compelling reasons, supported by specific facts 11 and legal justification, for the requested sealing order. Again, competent evidence 12 supporting the application to file documents under seal must be provided by 13 declaration. 14 2. DEFINITIONS 15 2.1 “Action”: this pending federal law suit. 16 2.2 “Challenging Party”: a Party or Non-Party that challenges the 17 18 designation of information or items under this Order. 2.3 “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items: information (regardless of 19 how it is generated, stored or maintained) or tangible things that qualify for 20 protection under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(c), and as specified above in 21 the Good Cause Statement. 22 23 24 2.4 Counsel: Outside Counsel of Record and House Counsel (as well as their support staff). 2.5 Designating Party: a Party or Non-Party that designates information 25 or items that it produces in disclosures or in responses to discovery as 26 “CONFIDENTIAL.” 27 28 2.6 Disclosure or Discovery Material: all items or information, regardless of the medium or manner in which it is generated, stored, or maintained (including, -4STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 among other things, testimony, transcripts, and tangible things), that are produced 2 or generated in disclosures or responses to discovery in this matter. 3 2.7 Expert: a person with specialized knowledge or experience in a matter 4 pertinent to the litigation who has been retained by a Party or its counsel to serve 5 as an expert witness or as a consultant in this Action. 6 2.8 House Counsel (i.e., Office of Pasadena City Attorney): attorneys 7 who are employees of a party to this Action. House Counsel does not include 8 Outside Counsel of Record or any other outside counsel. 9 10 2.9 Non-Party: any natural person, partnership, corporation, association or other legal entity not named as a Party to this action. 11 2.10 Outside Counsel of Record: attorneys who are not employees of a 12 party to this Action but are retained to represent or advise a party to this Action 13 and have appeared in this Action on behalf of that party or are affiliated with a law 14 firm that has appeared on behalf of that party, and includes support staff. 15 2.11 Party: any party to this Action, including all of its officers, directors, 16 employees, consultants, retained experts, and Outside Counsel of Record (and their 17 support staffs). 18 19 2.12 Producing Party: a Party or Non-Party that produces Disclosure or Discovery Material in this Action. 20 2.13 Professional Vendors: persons or entities that provide litigation 21 support services (e.g., photocopying, videotaping, translating, preparing exhibits or 22 demonstrations, and organizing, storing, or retrieving data in any form or medium) 23 and their employees and subcontractors. 24 25 2.14 Protected Material: any Disclosure or Discovery Material that is designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” 26 2.15 Receiving Party: a Party that receives Disclosure or Discovery 27 Material from a Producing Party. 28 /// -5STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 3. SCOPE 2 The protections conferred by this Stipulation and Order cover not only 3 Protected Material (as defined above), but also (1) any information copied or 4 extracted from Protected Material; (2) all copies, excerpts, summaries, or 5 compilations of Protected Material; and (3) any testimony, conversations, or 6 presentations by Parties or their Counsel that might reveal Protected Material. 7 Any use of Protected Material at trial shall be governed by the orders of the trial 8 judge. This Order does not govern the use of Protected Material at trial. Pursuant 9 to the Court’s Standing Order at Paragraph 31, it is acknowledged that it is the 10 Court, not the parties, that determines whether a document can be filed under seal. 11 Thus, this proposed protective order cannot, and does not, attempt to pre-authorize 12 any party to file documents under seal. The parties acknowledge that they are to 13 strictly comply with Local Rule 79-5 and its subdivisions. 14 4. DURATION Once a case proceeds to trial, information that was designated as 15 16 CONFIDENTIAL or maintained pursuant to this protective order used or 17 introduced as an exhibit at trial becomes public and will be presumptively 18 available to all members of the public, including the press, unless compelling 19 reasons supported by specific factual findings to proceed otherwise are made to the 20 trial judge in advance of the trial. See Kamakana, 447 F.3d at 1180-81 21 (distinguishing “good cause” showing for sealing documents produced in 22 discovery from “compelling reasons” standard when merits-related documents are 23 part of court record). Accordingly, the terms of this protective order do not extend 24 beyond the commencement of the trial. 25 5. 26 DESIGNATING PROTECTED MATERIAL 5.1 Exercise of Restraint and Care in Designating Material for Protection. 27 Each Party or Non-Party that designates information or items for protection under 28 this Order must take care to limit any such designation to specific material that -6STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 qualifies under the appropriate standards. The Designating Party must designate 2 for protection only those parts of material, documents, items or oral or written 3 communications that qualify so that other portions of the material, documents, 4 items or communications for which protection is not warranted are not swept 5 unjustifiably within the ambit of this Order. 6 Mass, indiscriminate or routinized designations are prohibited. Designations 7 that are shown to be clearly unjustified or that have been made for an improper 8 purpose (e.g., to unnecessarily encumber the case development process or to 9 impose unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) may expose the 10 Designating Party to sanctions. 11 If it comes to a Designating Party’s attention that information or items that it 12 designated for protection do not qualify for protection, that Designating Party must 13 promptly notify all other Parties that it is withdrawing the inapplicable designation. 14 5.2 Manner and Timing of Designations. Except as otherwise provided in 15 this Order (see, e.g., second paragraph of section 5.2(a) below), or as otherwise 16 stipulated or ordered, Disclosure or Discovery Material that qualifies for protection 17 under this Order must be clearly so designated before the material is disclosed or 18 produced. 19 20 Designation in conformity with this Order requires: (a) for information in documentary form (e.g., paper or electronic 21 documents, but excluding transcripts of depositions or other pretrial or trial 22 proceedings), that the Producing Party affix at a minimum, the legend 23 “CONFIDENTIAL” (hereinafter “CONFIDENTIAL legend”), to each page that 24 contains protected material. If only a portion of the material on a page qualifies for 25 protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the protected portion(s) 26 (e.g., by making appropriate markings in the margins). 27 28 A Party or Non-Party that makes original documents available for inspection need not designate them for protection until after the inspecting Party -7STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 has indicated which documents it would like copied and produced. During the 2 inspection and before the designation, all of the material made available for 3 inspection shall be deemed “CONFIDENTIAL.” After the inspecting Party has 4 identified the documents it wants copied and produced, the Producing Party must 5 determine which documents, or portions thereof, qualify for protection under this 6 Order. Then, before producing the specified documents, the Producing Party must 7 affix the “CONFIDENTIAL legend” to each page that contains Protected Material. 8 If only a portion of the material on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing 9 Party also must clearly identify the protected portion(s) (e.g., by making 10 appropriate markings in the margins). 11 (b) for testimony given in depositions that the Designating Party 12 identifies the Disclosure or Discovery Material on the record, before the close of 13 the deposition all protected testimony. 14 (c) for information produced in some form other than documentary 15 and for any other tangible items, that the Producing Party affix in a prominent 16 place on the exterior of the container or containers in which the information is 17 stored the legend “CONFIDENTIAL.” If only a portion or portions of the 18 information warrants protection, the Producing Party, to the extent practicable, 19 shall identify the protected portion(s). 20 5.3 Inadvertent Failures to Designate. If timely corrected, an inadvertent 21 failure to designate qualified information or items does not, standing alone, waive 22 the Designating Party’s right to secure protection under this Order for such 23 material. Upon timely correction of a designation, the Receiving Party must make 24 reasonable efforts to assure that the material is treated in accordance with the 25 provisions of this Order. 26 6. 27 28 CHALLENGING CONFIDENTIALITY DESIGNATIONS 6.1 Timing of Challenges. Any Party or Non-Party may challenge a designation of confidentiality at any time that is consistent with the Court’s -8STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 Scheduling Order. 2 3 6.2 Meet and Confer. The Challenging Party shall initiate the dispute resolution process under Local Rule 37.1 et seq. 6.3 4 The burden of persuasion in any such challenge proceeding shall be 5 on the Designating Party. Frivolous challenges, and those made for an improper 6 purpose (e.g., to harass or impose unnecessary expenses and burdens on other 7 parties) may expose the Challenging Party to sanctions. Unless the Designating 8 Party has waived or withdrawn the confidentiality designation, all parties shall 9 continue to afford the material in question the level of protection to which it is 10 entitled under the Producing Party’s designation until the Court rules on the 11 challenge. 12 7. 13 ACCESS TO AND USE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 7.1 Basic Principles. A Receiving Party may use Protected Material that 14 is disclosed or produced by another Party or by a Non-Party in connection with 15 this Action only for prosecuting, defending or attempting to settle this Action. 16 Such Protected Material may be disclosed only to the categories of persons and 17 under the conditions described in this Order. When the Action has been 18 terminated, a Receiving Party must comply with the provisions of section 13 below 19 (FINAL DISPOSITION). 20 Protected Material must be stored and maintained by a Receiving Party at a 21 location and in a secure manner that ensures that access is limited to the persons 22 authorized under this Order. 23 7.2 Disclosure of “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items. Unless 24 otherwise ordered by the court or permitted in writing by the Designating Party, a 25 Receiving Party may disclose any information or item designated 26 “CONFIDENTIAL” only to: 27 (a) 28 the Receiving Party’s Outside Counsel of Record in this Action, as well as employees of said Outside Counsel of Record to whom it is reasonably -9STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 necessary to disclose the information for this Action; 2 (b) the officers, directors, and employees (including House 3 Counsel) of the Receiving Party to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for 4 this Action; 5 (c) Experts (as defined in this Order) of the Receiving Party to 6 whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action and who have signed the 7 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); 8 (d) the court and its personnel; 9 (e) court reporters and their staff; 10 (f) professional jury or trial consultants, mock jurors, and 11 Professional Vendors to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action 12 and who have signed the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit 13 A); 14 (g) the author or recipient of a document containing the 15 information or a custodian or other person who otherwise possessed or knew the 16 information; 17 (h) during their depositions, witnesses, and attorneys for witnesses, 18 in the Action to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary provided: (1) the 19 deposing party requests that the witness sign the form attached as Exhibit 1 hereto; 20 and (2) they will not be permitted to keep any confidential information unless they 21 sign the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A), unless 22 otherwise agreed by the Designating Party or ordered by the court. Pages of 23 transcribed deposition testimony or exhibits to depositions that reveal Protected 24 Material may be separately bound by the court reporter and may not be disclosed 25 to anyone except as permitted under this Stipulated Protective Order; and 26 (i) any mediator or settlement officer, and their supporting 27 personnel, mutually agreed upon by any of the parties engaged in settlement 28 discussions. - 10 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 8. PROTECTED MATERIAL SUBPOENAED OR ORDERED PRODUCED 2 IN OTHER LITIGATION 3 If a Party is served with a subpoena or a court order issued in other litigation 4 that compels disclosure of any information or items designated in this Action as 5 “CONFIDENTIAL,” that Party must: (a) 6 7 promptly notify in writing the Designating Party. Such notification shall include a copy of the subpoena or court order; (b) 8 promptly notify in writing the party who caused the subpoena 9 or order to issue in the other litigation that some or all of the material covered by 10 the subpoena or order is subject to this Protective Order. Such notification shall 11 include a copy of this Stipulated Protective Order; and (c) 12 cooperate with respect to all reasonable procedures sought to be 13 pursued by the Designating Party whose Protected Material may be affected. 14 If the Designating Party timely seeks a protective order, the Party served with the 15 subpoena or court order shall not produce any information designated in this action 16 as “CONFIDENTIAL” before a determination by the court from which the 17 subpoena or order issued, unless the Party has obtained the Designating Party’s 18 permission. The Designating Party shall bear the burden and expense of seeking 19 protection in that court of its confidential material and nothing in these provisions 20 should be construed as authorizing or encouraging a Receiving Party in this Action 21 to disobey a lawful directive from another court. 22 9. 23 24 A NON-PARTY’S PROTECTED MATERIAL SOUGHT TO BE PRODUCED IN THIS LITIGATION (a) The terms of this Order are applicable to information produced 25 by a Non-Party in this Action and designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” Such 26 information produced by Non-Parties in connection with this litigation is protected 27 by the remedies and relief provided by this Order. Nothing in these provisions 28 should be construed as prohibiting a Non-Party from seeking additional - 11 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 protections. 2 (b) In the event that a Party is required, by a valid discovery 3 request, to produce a Non-Party’s confidential information in its possession, and 4 the Party is subject to an agreement with the Non-Party not to produce the Non- 5 Party’s confidential information, then the Party shall: 6 (1) promptly notify in writing the Requesting Party and the 7 Non-Party that some or all of the information requested is subject to a 8 confidentiality agreement with a Non-Party; 9 (2) promptly provide the Non-Party with a copy of the 10 Stipulated Protective Order in this Action, the relevant discovery request(s), and a 11 reasonably specific description of the information requested; and 12 13 (3) make the information requested available for inspection by the Non-Party, if requested. 14 (c) If the Non-Party fails to seek a protective order from this court 15 within 14 days of receiving the notice and accompanying information, the 16 Receiving Party may produce the Non-Party’s confidential information responsive 17 to the discovery request. If the Non-Party timely seeks a protective order, the 18 Receiving Party shall not produce any information in its possession or control that 19 is subject to the confidentiality agreement with the Non-Party before a 20 determination by the court. Absent a court order to the contrary, the Non-Party 21 shall bear the burden and expense of seeking protection in this court of its 22 Protected Material. 23 10. UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 24 If a Receiving Party learns that, by inadvertence or otherwise, it has 25 disclosed Protected Material to any person or in any circumstance not authorized 26 under this Stipulated Protective Order, the Receiving Party must immediately (a) 27 notify in writing the Designating Party of the unauthorized disclosures, (b) use its 28 best efforts to retrieve all unauthorized copies of the Protected Material, (c) inform - 12 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 the person or persons to whom unauthorized disclosures were made of all the terms 2 of this Order, and (d) request such person or persons to execute the 3 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” that is attached hereto as Exhibit 4 A. 5 11. INADVERTENT PRODUCTION OF PRIVILEGED OR OTHERWISE 6 PROTECTED MATERIAL 7 When a Producing Party gives notice to Receiving Parties that certain 8 inadvertently produced material is subject to a claim of privilege or other 9 protection, the obligations of the Receiving Parties are those set forth in Federal 10 Rule of Civil Procedure 26(b)(5)(B). This provision is not intended to modify 11 whatever procedure may be established in an e-discovery order that provides for 12 production without prior privilege review. Pursuant to Federal Rule of Evidence 13 502(d) and (e), insofar as the parties reach an agreement on the effect of disclosure 14 of a communication or information covered by the attorney-client privilege or 15 work product protection, the parties may incorporate their agreement in the 16 stipulated protective order submitted to the court. 17 12. 18 19 20 MISCELLANEOUS 12.1 Right to Further Relief. Nothing in this Order abridges the right of any person to seek its modification by the Court in the future. 12.2 Right to Assert Other Objections. By stipulating to the entry of this 21 Protective Order, no Party waives any right it otherwise would have to object to 22 disclosing or producing any information or item on any ground not addressed in 23 this Stipulated Protective Order. Similarly, no Party waives any right to object on 24 any ground to use in evidence of any of the material covered by this Protective 25 Order. 26 12.3 Filing Protected Material. All Parties and their Counsel agree that if a 27 Party intends to file Protected Material with the Court, for any reason, that Party 28 and Counsel shall request permission from the Court to file the Protected Material - 13 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 under seal. A Party that seeks to file under seal any Protected Material must 2 comply with Local Civil Rule 79-5. Protected Material may only be filed under 3 seal pursuant to a court order authorizing the sealing of the specific Protected 4 Material at issue. If a Party’s request to file Protected Material under seal is denied 5 by the court, then the Receiving Party may file the information in the public record 6 unless otherwise instructed by the court. 7 13. FINAL DISPOSITION 8 After the final disposition of this Action, as defined in paragraph 4, within 9 60 days of a written request by the Designating Party, each Receiving Party must 10 return all Protected Material to the Producing Party or destroy such material. As 11 used in this subdivision, “all Protected Material” includes all copies, abstracts, 12 compilations, summaries, and any other format reproducing or capturing any of the 13 Protected Material. Whether the Protected Material is returned or destroyed, the 14 Receiving Party must submit a written certification to the Producing Party (and, if 15 not the same person or entity, to the Designating Party) by the 60 day deadline that 16 (1) identifies (by category, where appropriate) all the Protected Material that was 17 returned or destroyed and (2) affirms that the Receiving Party has not retained any 18 copies, abstracts, compilations, summaries or any other format reproducing or 19 capturing any of the Protected Material. Notwithstanding this provision, Counsel 20 are entitled to retain an archival copy of all pleadings, motion papers, trial, 21 deposition, and hearing transcripts, legal memoranda, correspondence, deposition 22 and trial exhibits, expert reports, attorney work product, and consultant and expert 23 work product, even if such materials contain Protected Material. Any such 24 archival copies that contain or constitute Protected Material remain subject to this 25 Protective Order as set forth in Section 4 (DURATION). 26 14. 27 28 VIOLATION Any violation of this Order may be punished by appropriate measures including, without limitation, contempt proceedings and/or monetary sanctions. - 14 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 **** End of proposed protective order 2 3 4 IT IS SO STIPULATED.
