1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 CATIMINI USA, LTD., a New York corporation et al., 11 12 Plaintiffs, 13 vs. 14 Case No. 2:17-cv-02914-DSF (GJSx) STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER1 LSH PLUS LLC, a California Limited Liability Company et al., 15 Defendants. 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 1 28 This Stipulated Protective Order is substantially based on the model protective order provided under Magistrate Judge Gail J. Standish’s Procedures. 1 2 1. A. PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS Discovery in this action is likely to involve production of confidential, 3 proprietary or private information for which special protection from public 4 disclosure and from use for any purpose other than prosecuting this litigation may 5 be warranted. Accordingly, the parties hereby stipulate to and petition the Court to 6 enter the following Stipulated Protective Order. The parties acknowledge that this 7 Order does not confer blanket protections on all disclosures or responses to 8 discovery and that the protection it affords from public disclosure and use extends 9 only to the limited information or items that are entitled to confidential treatment 10 under the applicable legal principles. 11 12 B. GOOD CAUSE STATEMENT 13 This action is likely to involve trade secrets, customer and pricing lists and 14 other valuable research, development, commercial, financial, technical and/or 15 proprietary information for which special protection from public disclosure and 16 from use for any purpose other than prosecution of this action is warranted. Such 17 confidential and proprietary materials and information consist of, among other 18 things, confidential business or financial information, information regarding 19 confidential business practices, pricing, business plans, or other confidential 20 research, development, or commercial information (including information 21 implicating privacy rights of third parties), information otherwise generally 22 unavailable to the public, or which may be privileged or otherwise protected from 23 disclosure under state or federal statutes, court rules, case decisions, or common 24 law. Accordingly, to expedite the flow of information, to facilitate the prompt 25 resolution of disputes over confidentiality of discovery materials, to adequately 26 protect information the parties are entitled to keep confidential, to ensure that the 27 parties are permitted reasonable necessary uses of such material in preparation for 28 and in the conduct of trial, to address their handling at the end of the litigation, and 2 1 serve the ends of justice, a protective order for such information is justified in this 2 matter. It is the intent of the parties that information will not be designated as 3 confidential for tactical reasons and that nothing be so designated without a good 4 faith belief that it has been maintained in a confidential, non-public manner, and 5 there is good cause why it should not be part of the public record of this case. 6 C. ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF PROCEDURE FOR FILING UNDER SEAL 7 The parties further acknowledge, as set forth in Section 12.3, below, that this 8 Stipulated Protective Order does not entitle them to file confidential information 9 under seal; Local Civil Rule 79-5 sets forth the procedures that must be followed 10 and the standards that will be applied when a party seeks permission from the court 11 to file material under seal. 12 There is a strong presumption that the public has a right of access to judicial 13 proceedings and records in civil cases. In connection with non-dispositive motions, 14 good cause must be shown to support a filing under seal. See Kamakana v. City and 15 County of Honolulu, 447 F.3d 1172, 1176 (9th Cir. 2006), Phillips v. Gen. Motors 16 Corp., 307 F.3d 1206, 1210-11 (9th Cir. 2002), Makar-Welbon v. Sony Electrics, 17 Inc., 187 F.R.D. 576, 577 (E.D. Wis. 1999) (even stipulated protective orders 18 require good cause showing), and a specific showing of good cause or compelling 19 reasons with proper evidentiary support and legal justification, must be made with 20 respect to Protected Material that a party seeks to file under seal. The parties’ mere 21 designation of Disclosure or Discovery Material as CONFIDENTIAL does not— 22 without the submission of competent evidence by declaration, establishing that the 23 material sought to be filed under seal qualifies as confidential, privileged, or 24 otherwise protectable—constitute good cause. 25 Further, if a party requests sealing related to a dispositive motion or trial, then 26 compelling reasons, not only good cause, for the sealing must be shown, and the 27 relief sought shall be narrowly tailored to serve the specific interest to be protected. 28 See Pintos v. Pacific Creditors Ass’n, 605 F.3d 665, 677-79 (9th Cir. 2010). For 3 1 each item or type of information, document, or thing sought to be filed or introduced 2 under seal in connection with a dispositive motion or trial, the party seeking 3 protection must articulate compelling reasons, supported by specific facts and legal 4 justification, for the requested sealing order. Again, competent evidence supporting 5 the application to file documents under seal must be provided by declaration. Any document that is not confidential, privileged, or otherwise protectable in 6 7 its entirety will not be filed under seal if the confidential portions can be redacted. 8 If documents can be redacted, then a redacted version for public viewing, omitting 9 only the confidential, privileged, or otherwise protectable portions of the document, 10 shall be filed. Any application that seeks to file documents under seal in their 11 entirety should include an explanation of why redaction is not feasible. 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 2. DEFINITIONS 2.1 Action: Catimini USA, Ltd., et al. v. LSH Plus LLC, et al., Case No. 2:17-cv-02914-DSF (GJSx). 2.2 Challenging Party: a Party or Non-Party that challenges the 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 or 25 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, 4 1 among other things, testimony, transcripts, and tangible things), that are produced or 2 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 as 5 an expert witness or as a consultant in this Action. 6 2.8 House Counsel: attorneys who are employees of a party to this Action 7 or attorneys who are not employees of a party to this Action but represent the 8 interests of a party to this Action, provided that the identities of such non-employee 9 attorneys are first revealed to the Producing Party prior to disclosure of the 10 Producing Party’s Protected Material to such attorneys. House Counsel does not 11 include Outside Counsel of Record or any other outside counsel not described in this 12 subsection 2.8. 13 2.9 14 15 Non-Party: any natural person, partnership, corporation, association or other legal entity not named as a Party to this action. 2.10 Outside Counsel of Record: attorneys who are not employees of a 16 party to this Action but are retained to represent or advise a party to this Action and 17 have appeared in this Action on behalf of that party or are affiliated with a law firm 18 that has appeared on behalf of that party, and includes support staff. 19 2.11 Party: any party to this Action, including all of its officers, directors, 20 employees, consultants, retained experts, and Outside Counsel of Record (and their 21 support staffs). 22 23 2.12 Producing Party: a Party or Non-Party that produces Disclosure or Discovery Material in this Action. 24 2.13 Professional Vendors: persons or entities that provide litigation 25 support services (e.g., photocopying, videotaping, translating, preparing exhibits or 26 demonstrations, and organizing, storing, or retrieving data in any form or medium) 27 and their employees and subcontractors. 28 2.14 Protected Material: any Disclosure or Discovery Material that is 5 1 designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” 2.15 Receiving Party: a Party that receives Disclosure or Discovery 2 3 Material from a Producing Party. 4 5 3. SCOPE 6 The protections conferred by this Stipulation and Order cover not only 7 Protected Material (as defined above), but also (1) any information copied or 8 extracted from Protected Material; (2) all copies, excerpts, summaries, or 9 compilations of Protected Material; and (3) any testimony, conversations, or 10 presentations by Parties or their Counsel that might reveal Protected Material. Any use of Protected Material at trial shall be governed by the orders of the 11 12 trial judge. This Order does not govern the use of Protected Material at trial. 13 14 15 4. DURATION The Parties agree to meet and confer in good faith prior to trial to establish 16 procedures for the use of Protected Material at trial, subject to the court’s approval. 17 Once a case proceeds to trial, information that was designated as CONFIDENTIAL 18 or maintained pursuant to this protective order used or introduced as an exhibit at 19 trial becomes public and will be presumptively available to all members of the 20 public, including the press, unless compelling reasons supported by specific factual 21 findings to proceed otherwise are made to the trial judge in advance of the trial. See 22 Kamakana, 447 F.3d at 1180-81 (distinguishing “good cause” showing for sealing 23 documents produced in discovery from “compelling reasons” standard when merits- 24 related documents are part of court record). Accordingly, the terms of this 25 protective order do not extend to the handling of Protected Material in connection 26 with the trial. 27 28 6 1 2 5. DESIGNATING PROTECTED MATERIAL 5.1 Exercise of Restraint and Care in Designating Material for Protection. 3 Each Party or Non-Party that designates information or items for protection under 4 this Order must take care to limit any such designation to specific material that 5 qualifies under the appropriate standards. The Designating Party must designate for 6 protection only those parts of material, documents, items or oral or written 7 communications that qualify so that other portions of the material, documents, items 8 or communications for which protection is not warranted are not swept unjustifiably 9 within the ambit of this Order. 10 Mass, indiscriminate or routinized designations are prohibited. Designations 11 that are shown to be clearly unjustified or that have been made for an improper 12 purpose (e.g., to unnecessarily encumber the case development process or to impose 13 unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) may expose the Designating 14 Party to sanctions. 15 If it comes to a Designating Party’s attention that information or items that it 16 designated for protection do not qualify for protection, that Designating Party must 17 promptly notify all other Parties that it is withdrawing the inapplicable designation. 18 5.2 Manner and Timing of Designations. Except as otherwise provided in 19 this Order (see, e.g., second paragraph of section 5.2(a) below), or as otherwise 20 stipulated or ordered, Disclosure or Discovery Material that qualifies for protection 21 under this Order must be clearly so designated before the material is disclosed or 22 produced. 23 Designation in conformity with this Order requires: 24 (a) for information in documentary form (e.g., paper or electronic 25 documents, but excluding transcripts of depositions or other pretrial or trial 26 proceedings), that the Producing Party affix at a minimum, the legend 27 “CONFIDENTIAL” (hereinafter “CONFIDENTIAL legend”), to each page that 28 contains protected material. If only a portion of the material on a page qualifies for 7 1 protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the protected portion(s) 2 (e.g., by making appropriate markings in the margins). 3 A Party or Non-Party that makes original documents available for inspection 4 need not designate them for protection until after the inspecting Party has indicated 5 which documents it would like copied and produced. During the inspection and 6 before the designation, all of the material made available for inspection shall be 7 deemed “CONFIDENTIAL.” After the inspecting Party has identified the 8 documents it wants copied and produced, the Producing Party must determine which 9 documents, or portions thereof, qualify for protection under this Order. Then, 10 before producing the specified documents, the Producing Party must affix the 11 “CONFIDENTIAL legend” to each page that contains Protected Material. If only a 12 portion of the material on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also 13 must clearly identify the protected portion(s) (e.g., by making appropriate markings 14 in the margins). (b) for testimony given in depositions that the Designating Party identifies 15 16 the Disclosure or Discovery Material on the record, before the close of the 17 deposition all protected testimony. (c) for information produced in some form other than documentary and 18 19 for any other tangible items, that the Producing Party affix in a prominent place on 20 the exterior of the container or containers in which the information is stored the 21 legend “CONFIDENTIAL.” If only a portion or portions of the information 22 warrants protection, the Producing Party, to the extent practicable, shall identify the 23 protected portion(s). 24 5.3 Inadvertent Failures to Designate. If timely corrected, an inadvertent 25 failure to designate qualified information or items does not, standing alone, waive 26 the Designating Party’s right to secure protection under this Order for such material. 27 Upon timely correction of a designation, the Receiving Party must make reasonable 28 efforts to assure that the material is treated in accordance with the provisions of this 8 1 Order. 2 3 6. CHALLENGING CONFIDENTIALITY DESIGNATIONS 6.1 4 Timing of Challenges. Any Party or Non-Party may challenge a 5 designation of confidentiality at any time that is consistent with the Court’s 6 Scheduling Order. 6.2 7 8 Meet and Confer. The Challenging Party shall initiate the dispute resolution process under Local Rule 37.1 et seq. 6.3 9 The burden of persuasion in any such challenge proceeding shall be on 10 the Designating Party. Frivolous challenges, and those made for an improper 11 purpose (e.g., to harass or impose unnecessary expenses and burdens on other 12 parties) may expose the Challenging Party to sanctions. Unless the Designating 13 Party has waived or withdrawn the confidentiality designation, all parties shall 14 continue to afford the material in question the level of protection to which it is 15 entitled under the Producing Party’s designation until the Court rules on the 16 challenge. 17 18 19 7. ACCESS TO AND USE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 7.1 Basic Principles. A Receiving Party may use Protected Material that is 20 disclosed or produced by another Party or by a Non-Party in connection with this 21 Action only for prosecuting, defending or attempting to settle this Action. Such 22 Protected Material may be disclosed only to the categories of persons and under the 23 conditions described in this Order. When the Action has been terminated, a 24 Receiving Party must comply with the provisions of section 13 below (FINAL 25 DISPOSITION). 26 Protected Material must be stored and maintained by a Receiving Party at a 27 location and in a secure manner that ensures that access is limited to the persons 28 authorized under this Order. 9 1 7.2 Disclosure of “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items. Unless 2 otherwise ordered by the court or permitted in writing by the Designating Party, a 3 Receiving Party may disclose any information or item designated 4 “CONFIDENTIAL” only to: 5 (a) the Receiving Party’s Outside Counsel of Record in this Action, as 6 well as employees of said Outside Counsel of Record to whom it is reasonably 7 necessary to disclose the information for this Action; 8 (b) the officers, directors, and employees (including House Counsel) of 9 the Receiving Party to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action; 10 (c) Experts (as defined in this Order) of the Receiving Party to whom 11 disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action and who have signed the 12 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A), provided that: (1) 13 each such person is not an officer, director, owner or employee of any Party and (2) 14 each such person is not an officer, director, owner or employee of a known 15 competitor of the Designating Party. 16 (d) the court and its personnel; 17 (e) court reporters and their staff; 18 (f) professional jury or trial consultants, mock jurors, and Professional 19 Vendors to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action and who have 20 signed the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); 21 22 (g) the author or recipient of a document containing the information or a custodian or other person who otherwise possessed or knew the information; 23 (h) during their depositions, witnesses, and attorneys for witnesses, in the 24 Action to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary provided: (1) the deposing party 25 requests that the witness sign the form attached as Exhibit 1 hereto; and (2) they will 26 not be permitted to keep any confidential information unless they sign the 27 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A), unless otherwise 28 agreed by the Designating Party or ordered by the court. Pages of transcribed 10 1 deposition testimony or exhibits to depositions that reveal Protected Material may 2 be separately bound by the court reporter and may not be disclosed to anyone except 3 as permitted under this Stipulated Protective Order; and (i) any mediator or settlement officer, and their supporting personnel, 4 5 mutually agreed upon by any of the parties engaged in settlement discussions. 6 7 8. PROTECTED MATERIAL SUBPOENAED OR ORDERED PRODUCED 8 IN OTHER LITIGATION 9 If a Party is served with a subpoena or a court order issued in other litigation 10 that compels disclosure of any information or items designated in this Action as 11 “CONFIDENTIAL,” that Party must: 12 13 14 (a) promptly notify in writing the Designating Party. Such notification shall include a copy of the subpoena or court order; (b) promptly notify in writing the party who caused the subpoena or order 15 to issue in the other litigation that some or all of the material covered by the 16 subpoena or order is subject to this Protective Order. Such notification shall include 17 a copy of this Stipulated Protective Order; and 18 19 20 (c) cooperate with respect to all reasonable procedures sought to be pursued by the Designating Party whose Protected Material may be affected. If the Designating Party timely seeks a protective order, the Party served with 21 the subpoena or court order shall not produce any information designated in this 22 action as “CONFIDENTIAL” before a determination by the court from which the 23 subpoena or order issued, unless the Party has obtained the Designating Party’s 24 permission. The Designating Party shall bear the burden and expense of seeking 25 protection in that court of its confidential material and nothing in these provisions 26 should be construed as authorizing or encouraging a Receiving Party in this Action 27 to disobey a lawful directive from another court. 28 11 1 2 3 9. A NON-PARTY’S PROTECTED MATERIAL SOUGHT TO BE PRODUCED IN THIS LITIGATION (a) The terms of this Order are applicable to information produced by a 4 Non-Party in this Action and designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” Such information 5 produced by Non-Parties in connection with this litigation is protected by the 6 remedies and relief provided by this Order. Nothing in these provisions should be 7 construed as prohibiting a Non-Party from seeking additional protections. 8 (b) In the event that a Party is required, by a valid discovery request, to 9 produce a Non-Party’s confidential information in its possession, and the Party is 10 subject to an agreement with the Non-Party not to produce the Non-Party’s 11 confidential information even if done so pursuant to a stipulated protective order 12 entered by a court, then the Party shall: 13 (1) promptly notify in writing the Requesting Party and the Non-Party 14 that some or all of the information requested is subject to a confidentiality 15 agreement with a Non-Party; 16 (2) promptly provide the Non-Party with a copy of the Stipulated 17 Protective Order in this Action, the relevant discovery request(s), and a reasonably 18 specific description of the information requested; and 19 20 (3) make the information requested available for inspection by the Non-Party, if requested. 21 (c) If the Non-Party fails to seek a protective order from this court within 22 14 days of receiving the notice and accompanying information, the Receiving Party 23 may produce the Non-Party’s confidential information responsive to the discovery 24 request pursuant to the terms of this Stipulated Protective Order. If the Non-Party 25 timely seeks its own protective order, the Receiving Party shall not produce any 26 information in its possession or control that is subject to the confidentiality 27 agreement with the Non-Party before a determination by the court. Absent a court 28 order to the contrary, the Non-Party shall bear the burden and expense of seeking 12 1 protection in this court of its Protected Material, if it desires protection beyond the 2 protections provided under this stipulated protective order. 3 4 10. UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL If a Receiving Party learns that, by inadvertence or otherwise, it has disclosed 5 6 Protected Material to any person or in any circumstance not authorized under this 7 Stipulated Protective Order, the Receiving Party must immediately (a) notify in 8 writing the Designating Party of the unauthorized disclosures, (b) use its best efforts 9 to retrieve all unauthorized copies of the Protected Material, (c) inform the person or 10 persons to whom unauthorized disclosures were made of all the terms of this Order, 11 and (d) request such person or persons to execute the “Acknowledgment and 12 Agreement to Be Bound” that is attached hereto as Exhibit A. 13 14 11. INADVERTENT PRODUCTION OF PRIVILEGED OR OTHERWISE 15 PROTECTED MATERIAL 16 When a Producing Party gives notice to Receiving Parties that certain 17 inadvertently produced material is subject to a claim of privilege or other protection, 18 the obligations of the Receiving Parties are those set forth in Federal Rule of Civil 19 Procedure 26(b)(5)(B). This provision is not intended to modify whatever 20 procedure may be established in an e-discovery order that provides for production 21 without prior privilege review. Pursuant to Federal Rule of Evidence 502(d) and 22 (e), insofar as the parties reach an agreement on the effect of disclosure of a 23 communication or information covered by the attorney-client privilege or work 24 product protection, the parties may incorporate their agreement in the stipulated 25 protective order submitted to the court. 26 27 28 12. MISCELLANEOUS 12.1 Right to Further Relief. Nothing in this Order abridges the right of any 13 1 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 2 3 Protective Order, no Party waives any right it otherwise would have to object to 4 disclosing or producing any information or item on any ground not addressed in this 5 Stipulated Protective Order. Similarly, no Party waives any right to object on any 6 ground to use in evidence of any of the material covered by this Protective Order. 7 12.3 Filing Protected Material. A Party that seeks to file under seal any 8 Protected Material must comply with Local Civil Rule 79-5. Protected Material 9 may only be filed under seal pursuant to a court order authorizing the sealing of the 10 specific Protected Material at issue. If a Party’s request to file Protected Material 11 under seal is denied by the court, then the Receiving Party may file the information 12 in the public record unless otherwise instructed by the court. 13 14 15 13. FINAL DISPOSITION After the final disposition of this Action, as defined in paragraph 4, within 60 16 days of a written request by the Designating Party, each Receiving Party must return 17 all Protected Material to the Producing Party or destroy such material. As used in 18 this subdivision, “all Protected Material” includes all copies, abstracts, compilations, 19 summaries, and any other format reproducing or capturing any of the Protected 20 Material. Whether the Protected Material is returned or destroyed, the Receiving 21 Party must submit a written certification to the Producing Party (and, if not the same 22 person or entity, to the Designating Party) by the 60 day deadline that (1) identifies 23 (by category, where appropriate) all the Protected Material that was returned or 24 destroyed and (2) affirms that the Receiving Party has not retained any copies, 25 abstracts, compilations, summaries or any other format reproducing or capturing any 26 of the Protected Material. Notwithstanding this provision, Counsel are entitled to 27 retain an archival copy of all pleadings, motion papers, trial, deposition, and hearing 28 transcripts, legal memoranda, correspondence, deposition and trial exhibits, expert 14 1 reports, attorney work product, and consultant and expert work product, even if such 2 materials contain Protected Material. Any such archival copies that contain or 3 constitute Protected Material remain subject to this Protective Order as set forth in 4 Section 4 (DURATION). 5 6 14. VIOLATION 7 Any violation of this Order may be punished by appropriate measures including, 8 without limitation, contempt proceedings and/or monetary sanctions. 9 10 15. SURVIVAL AND JURISDICTION. The terms of this Stipulated Protective 11 Order shall survive and continue to be binding after the conclusion of this Action. 12 The court shall retain jurisdiction to enforce this Stipulated Protective Order. 13 14 IT IS SO STIPULATED, THROUGH COUNSEL OF RECORD. 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 15 1 DATED: September 13, 2017 WOLF, RIFKIN, SHAPIRO, SCHULMAN & RABKIN, LLP 2 3 By: /s/ John Samberg JOHN SAMBERG MARK B.
