Dolly M. Gee] ) ) STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER ) ) ) ) ) ) ) 18 19 20 1. A. PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS Discovery in this action is likely to involve production of confidential, 21 proprietary, or private information for which special protection from public 22 disclosure and from use for any purpose other than prosecuting this litigation may be 23 warranted. Accordingly, the parties hereby stipulate to and petition the Court to enter 24 the following Stipulated Protective Order. The parties acknowledge that this Order 25 does not confer blanket protections on all disclosures or responses to discovery and 26 that the protection it affords from public disclosure and use extends only to the 27 limited information or items that are entitled to confidential treatment under the 28 1 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 applicable legal principles. The parties further acknowledge, as set forth in Section 2 12.3, below, that this Stipulated Protective Order does not entitle them to file 3 confidential information under seal; Civil Local Rule 79-5 sets forth the procedures 4 that must be followed and the standards that will be applied when a party seeks 5 permission from the court to file material under seal 6 B. GOOD CAUSE STATEMENT 7 Good cause exists for entry of this order. As Plaintiff is seeking and 8 Defendants may produce, among other things, third party private and confidential 9 information; portions of the personnel files of the police and detention officers 10 involved in the subject incident, which contains confidential information, and 11 information the City regards as official information; performance evaluations, work 12 schedules/logs and rosters, and training records for the involved police/detention 13 officers; administrative investigation files - including but not limited to Detective and 14 Crime Scene Investigator(s) materials, Internal Affairs materials – which contain 15 incident reports, witness statements, and other sensitive materials which the City 16 believes need special protection from public disclosure; detention records pertaining 17 to Plaintiff including but not limited to visitor and communication logs and medical 18 and mental health records; the City’s protocol and procedure concerning detention 19 facilities, and any official information documents produced to Plaintiffs during the 20 course of discovery in this litigation and any subsequent reproduction thereof, as well 21 as private information of the Los Angeles Police Department employees. 22 Additionally, these documents include sensitive law enforcement information. 23 Limiting disclosure of these documents to the context of this litigation as provided 24 herein will, accordingly, further important law-enforcement objectives and interests, 25 including safety of personnel and the public. 26 The documents identified in this Protective Order, which Defendants believe in 27 good faith constitute or embody confidential information which the City maintains as 28 2 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 strictly confidential and are otherwise generally unavailable to the public, or which 2 may be privileged or otherwise protected from disclosure under state or federal 3 statutes, court rules, case decisions, or common law, are therefore entitled to 4 heightened protection from disclosure. 5 The City contends that absent a protective order delineating the responsibilities 6 of nondisclosure on the part of the parties hereto, there is a specific risk of 7 unnecessary and undue disclosure by one or more of the many attorneys, secretaries, 8 law clerks, paralegals and expert witnesses involved in this case, as well as the 9 corollary risk of embarrassment, harassment and professional and legal harm on the 10 part of the LAPD officers referenced in the materials and information. 11 The City also contends that the unfettered disclosure of the materials and 12 information, absent a protective order, would allow the media to share this 13 information with potential jurors in the area, impacting the rights of the City herein to 14 receive a fair trial. 15 Accordingly, to expedite the flow of information, to facilitate the prompt 16 resolution of disputes over confidentiality of discovery materials, to adequately 17 protect information the parties are entitled to keep confidential, to ensure that the 18 parties are permitted reasonable necessary uses of such material in preparation for 19 and in the conduct of trial, to address their handling at the end of the litigation, and 20 serve the ends of justice, a protective order for such information is justified in this 21 matter. It is the intent of the parties that information will not be designated as 22 confidential for tactical reasons and that nothing be so designated without a good 23 faith belief that it has been maintained in a confidential, non-public manner, and there 24 is good cause why it should not be part of the public record of this case. 25 /// 26 /// 27 /// 28 3 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 2. DEFINITIONS 2 2.1 Action: This pending federal law suit. 3 2.2 Challenging Party: a Party or Non-Party that challenges the designation 4 of information or items under this Order. 5 2.3 “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items: information (regardless of 6 how it is generated, stored or maintained) or tangible things that qualify for 7 protection under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(c), and as specified above in the 8 Good Cause Statement.

SCOPE 22 The protections conferred by this Stipulation and Order cover not only 23 Protected Material (as defined above), but also (1) any information copied or 24 extracted from Protected Material; (2) all copies, excerpts, summaries, or 25 compilations of Protected Material; and (3) any testimony, conversations, or 26 presentations by Parties or their Counsel that might reveal Protected Material. 27 28 5 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 2 Any use of Protected Material at trial shall be governed by the orders of the trial judge. This Order does not govern the use of Protected Material at trial. 3 4 4. 5 DURATION Even after final disposition of this litigation, the confidentiality obligations 6 imposed by this Order shall remain in effect until a Designating Party agrees 7 otherwise in writing or a court order otherwise directs. Final disposition shall be 8 deemed to be the later of (1) dismissal of all claims and defenses in this Action, with 9 or without prejudice; and (2) final judgment herein after the completion and 10 exhaustion of all appeals, rehearings, remands, trials, or reviews of this Action, 11 including the time limits for filing any motions or applications for extension of time 12 pursuant to applicable law. 13 14 5. DESIGNATING PROTECTED MATERIAL 15 5.1 16 Each Party or Non-Party that designates information or items for protection Exercise of Restraint and Care in Designating Material for Protection. 17 under this Order must take care to limit any such designation to specific material that 18 qualifies under the appropriate standards. The Designating Party must designate for 19 protection only those parts of material, documents, items, or oral or written 20 communications that qualify so that other portions of the material, documents, items, 21 or communications for which protection is not warranted are not swept unjustifiably 22 within the ambit of this Order. 23 Mass, indiscriminate, or routinized designations are prohibited. Designations 24 that are shown to be clearly unjustified or that have been made for an improper 25 purpose (e.g., to unnecessarily encumber the case development process or to impose 26 unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) may expose the Designating 27 Party to sanctions. 28 6 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 If it comes to a Designating Party’s attention that information or items that it 2 designated for protection do not qualify for protection, that Designating Party must 3 promptly notify all other Parties that it is withdrawing the inapplicable designation. 4 /// 5 5.2 6 Except as otherwise provided in this Order (see, e.g., second paragraph of Manner and Timing of Designations. 7 section 5.2(a) below), or as otherwise stipulated or ordered, Disclosure or Discovery 8 Material that qualifies for protection under this Order must be clearly so designated 9 before the material is disclosed or produced. 10 Designation in conformity with this Order requires: 11 (a) for information in documentary form (e.g., paper or electronic 12 documents, but excluding transcripts of depositions or other pretrial or trial 13 proceedings), that the Producing Party affix at a minimum, the legend 14 “CONFIDENTIAL” (hereinafter “CONFIDENTIAL legend”), to each page that 15 contains protected material. If only a portion or portions of the material on a page 16 qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the protected 17 portion(s) (e.g., by making appropriate markings in the margins). 18 A Party or Non-Party that makes original documents available for inspection 19 need not designate them for protection until after the inspecting Party has indicated 20 which documents it would like copied and produced. During the inspection and 21 before the designation, all of the material made available for inspection shall be 22 deemed “CONFIDENTIAL.” After the inspecting Party has identified the documents 23 it wants copied and produced, the Producing Party must determine which documents, 24 or portions thereof, qualify for protection under this Order. Then, before producing 25 the specified documents, the Producing Party must affix the “CONFIDENTIAL 26 legend” to each page that contains Protected Material. If only a portion or portions of 27 the material on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also must clearly 28 7 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 identify the protected portion(s) (e.g., by making appropriate markings in the 2 margins). 3 (b) for testimony given in depositions that the Designating Party identify the 4 Disclosure or Discovery Material on the record, before the close of the deposition all 5 protected testimony. 6 (c) for information produced in some form other than documentary and for 7 any other tangible items, that, at a minimum, the Producing Party affix in a prominent 8 place on the exterior of the container or containers in which the information is stored 9 the legend “CONFIDENTIAL.” If only a portion or portions of the information 10 warrants protection, the Producing Party, to the extent practicable, shall identify the 11 protected portion(s). 12 5.3 Inadvertent Failures to Designate. If timely corrected, an inadvertent 13 failure to designate qualified information or items does not, standing alone, waive the 14 Designating Party’s right to secure protection under this Order for such material. 15 Upon timely correction of a designation, the Receiving Party must make reasonable 16 efforts to assure that the material is treated in accordance with the provisions of this 17 Order. 18 19 20 6. CHALLENGING CONFIDENTIALITY DESIGNATIONS 6.1 Timing of Challenges. Any Party or Non-Party may challenge a 21 designation of confidentiality at any time that is consistent with the Court’s 22 Scheduling Order. 23 24 25 6.2 Meet and Confer. The Challenging Party shall initiate the dispute resolution process under Local Rule 37.1 et seq. 6.3 The burden of persuasion in any such challenge proceeding shall be on 26 the Designating Party. Frivolous challenges, and those made for an improper purpose 27 (e.g., to harass or impose unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) may 28 8 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 expose the Challenging Party to sanctions. Unless the Designating Party has waived 2 or withdrawn the confidentiality designation, all parties shall continue to afford the 3 material in question the level of protection to which it is entitled under the Producing 4 Party’s designation until the Court rules on the challenge. 5 6 7 7. ACCESS TO AND USE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 7.1 Basic Principles. A Receiving Party may use Protected Material that is 8 disclosed or produced by another Party or by a Non-Party in connection with this 9 Action only for prosecuting, defending, or attempting to settle this Action. Such 10 Protected Material may be disclosed only to the categories of persons and under the 11 conditions described in this Order. When the Action has been terminated, a 12 Receiving Party must comply with the provisions of section 13 below (FINAL 13 DISPOSITION). 14 Protected Material must be stored and maintained by a Receiving Party at a 15 location and in a secure manner that ensures that access is limited to the persons 16 authorized under this Order. 17 7.2 Disclosure of “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items. Unless 18 otherwise ordered by the court or permitted in writing by the Designating Party, a 19 Receiving Party may disclose any information or item designated 20 “CONFIDENTIAL” only to: 21 (a) the Receiving Party’s Outside Counsel of Record in this Action, as well as 22 employees of said Outside Counsel of Record to whom it is reasonably necessary to 23 disclose the information for this Action; 24 (b) the officers, directors, and employees (including House Counsel) of the 25 Receiving Party to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action; 26 (c) Experts (as defined in this Order) of the Receiving Party to whom 27 28 9 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action and who have signed the 2 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); 3 (d) the court and its personnel; 4 (e) court reporters and their staff; 5 (f) professional jury or trial consultants, mock jurors, and Professional Vendors 6 to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action and who have signed the 7 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); 8 9 (g) the author or recipient of a document containing the information or a custodian or other person who otherwise possessed or knew the information; 10 (h) during their depositions, witnesses, and attorneys for witnesses, in the 11 Action to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary provided: (1) the deposing party 12 requests that the witness sign the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” 13 form attached as Exhibit A hereto; and (2) they will not be permitted to keep any 14 confidential information unless they sign the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to 15 Be Bound” (Exhibit A), unless otherwise agreed by the Designating Party or ordered 16 by the court. Pages of transcribed deposition testimony or exhibits to depositions that 17 reveal Protected Material may be separately bound by the court reporter and may not 18 be disclosed to anyone except as permitted under this Stipulated Protective Order; 19 and 20 21 (i) any mediator or settlement officer, and their supporting personnel, mutually agreed upon by any of the parties engaged in settlement discussions. 22 23 8. 24 OTHER LITIGATION 25 PROTECTED MATERIAL SUBPOENAED OR ORDERED PRODUCED IN If a Party is served with a subpoena or a court order issued in other litigation 26 that compels disclosure of any information or items designated in this Action as 27 “CONFIDENTIAL,” that Party must: 28 10 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 2 (a) promptly notify in writing the Designating Party. Such notification shall include a copy of the subpoena or court order; 3 (b) promptly notify in writing the party who caused the subpoena or order to 4 issues in the other litigation that some or all of the material covered by the subpoena 5 or order is subject to this Protective Order. Such notification shall include a copy of 6 this Stipulated Protective Order; and 7 8 (c) cooperate with respect to all reasonable procedures south to be pursued by the Designating Party whose Protected Material may be affected. 9 If the Designating Party timely seeks a protective order, the Party served with 10 the subpoena or court order shall not produce any information designated in this 11 action as “CONFIDENTIAL” before a determination by the court from which the 12 subpoena or order issued, unless the Party has obtained the Designating Party’s 13 permission. The Designating Party shall bear the burden and expense of seeking 14 protection in that court of its confidential material and nothing in these provisions 15 should be construed as authorizing or encouraging a Receiving Party in this Action to 16 disobey a lawful directive from another court. 17 18 9. 19 PRODUCED IN THIS LITIGATION 20 A NON-PARTY’S PROTECTED MATERIAL SOUGHT TO BE (a) The terms of this Order are applicable to information produced by a 21 Non-Party in this Action and designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” Such information 22 produced by Non-Parties in connection with this litigation is protected by the 23 remedies and relief provided by this Order. Nothing in these provisions should be 24 construed as prohibiting a Non-Party from seeking additional protections. 25 (b) In the event that a Party is required, by a valid discovery request, to 26 produce a Non-Party’s confidential information in its possession, and the Party is 27 subject to an agreement with the Non-Party not to produce the Non-Party’s 28 11 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 confidential information, then the Party shall: 2 (1) promptly notify in writing the Requesting Party and the Non-Party 3 that some or all of the information requested is subject to a confidentiality agreement 4 with a Non-Party; 5 (2) promptly provide the Non-Party with a copy of the Stipulated 6 Protective Order in this Action, the relevant discovery request(s), and a reasonably 7 specific description of the information requested; and 8 (3) 9 Non-Party, if requested. 10 (c) make the information requested available for inspection by the If the Non-Party fails to seek a protective order from this court within 14 11 days of receiving the notice and accompanying information, the Receiving Party may 12 produce the Non-Party’s confidential information responsive to the discovery 13 request. If the Non-Party timely seeks a protective order, the Receiving Party shall 14 not produce any information in its possession or control that is subject to the 15 confidentiality agreement with the Non-Party before a determination by the court. 16 Absent a court order to the contrary, the Non-Party shall bear the burden and expense 17 of seeking protection in this court of its Protected Material. 18 19 20 10. UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL. If a Receiving Party learns that, by inadvertence or otherwise, it has disclosed 21 Protected Material to any person or in any circumstance not authorized under this 22 Stipulated Protective Order, the Receiving Party must immediately (a) notify in 23 writing the Designating Party of the unauthorized disclosures, (b) use its best efforts 24 to retrieve all unauthorized copies of the Protected Material, (c) inform the person or 25 persons to whom unauthorized disclosures were made of all the terms of this Order, 26 and (d) request such person or persons to execute the “Acknowledgment and 27 Agreement to Be Bound” that is attached hereto as Exhibit A. 28 12 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 11. 2 INADVERTENT PRODUCTION OF PRIVILEGED OR OTHERWISE PROTECTED MATERIAL. 3 When a Producing Party gives notice to Receiving Parties that certain inadvertently 4 produced material is subject to a claim of privilege or other protection, the 5 obligations of the Receiving Parties are those set forth in Federal Rule of Civil 6 Procedure 26(b)(5)(B). This provision is not intended to modify whatever procedure 7 may be established in an e-discovery order that provides for production without prior 8 privilege review. Pursuant to Federal Rule of Evidence 502(d) and (e), insofar as the 9 parties reach an agreement on the effect of disclosure of a communication or 10 information covered by the attorney-client privilege or work product protection, the 11 parties may incorporate their agreement in the stipulated protective order submitted 12 to the court. 13 14 15 16 17 12. 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 18 Protective Order no Party waives any right it otherwise would have to object to 19 disclosing or producing any information or item on any ground not addressed in this 20 Stipulated Protective Order. Similarly, no Party waives any right to object on any 21 ground to use in evidence of any of the material covered by this Protective Order. 22 12.3 Filing Protected Material. A Party that seeks to file under seal any 23 Protected Material must comply with Civil Local Rule 79-5. Protected Material may 24 only be filed under seal pursuant to a court order authorizing the sealing of the 25 specific Protected Material at issue. If a Party's request to file Protected Material 26 under seal is denied by the court, then the Receiving Party may file the information in 27 the public record unless otherwise instructed by the court. 28 13 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 13. 2 FINAL DISPOSITION. After the final disposition of this Action (as defined in paragraph 4), within 60 3 days of a written request by the Designating Party, or another period of time agreed 4 upon by the parties, each Receiving Party must return all Protected Material to the 5 Producing Party or destroy such material. As used in this subdivision, “all Protected 6 Material” includes all copies, abstracts, compilations, summaries, and any other 7 format reproducing or capturing any of the Protected Material. Whether the Protected 8 Material is returned or destroyed, the Receiving Party must submit a written 9 certification to the Producing Party (and, if not the same person or entity, to the 10 Designating Party) by the 60 day or agreed upon deadline that (1) identifies (by 11 category, where appropriate) all the Protected Material that was returned or destroyed 12 and (2)affirms that the Receiving Party has not retained any copies, abstracts, 13 compilations, summaries or any other format reproducing or capturing any of the 14 Protected Material. Notwithstanding this provision, Counsel are entitled to retain an 15 archival copy of all pleadings, motion papers, trial, deposition, and hearing 16 transcripts, legal memoranda, correspondence, deposition and trial exhibits, expert 17 reports, attorney work product, and consultant and expert work product, even if such 18 materials contain Protected Material. Any such archival copies that contain or 19 constitute Protected Material remain subject to this Protective Order as set forth in 20 Section 4 (DURATION). 21 22 14. 23 measures including, without limitation, contempt proceedings and/or monetary 24 sanctions. 25 /// 26 /// 27 /// Any violation of this Order may be punished by any and all appropriate 28 14 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 2 IT IS SO STIPULATED, THROUGH COUNSEL OF RECORD.
