The parties acknowledge that this Order does not confer blanket 1 'Ca 1 2:17-cv-06984-SVW-E Document 33-1 Filed 04/10/18 Page 2 of 16 Page ID #:182 protections on all disclosures or responses to discovery and that the protection it affc rom public disclosure and use extends only to the limited information or items that 2 f 3 ~ entitled to confidential treatment under the applicable legal principles. 4 5 B . GOOD CAUSE STATEMENT 6 This action involves the City of Los Angeles and members of the Los Ange 7 Police Department. Plaintiff is seeking materials and information that Defendants i 8 City of Los Angeles et al. ("City") maintains as confidential, such as personnel files 9 the police officers involved in this incident, Internal Affairs materials and informati~ 10 video recordings, audio recordings, Force Investigation Division materials 11 information and other administrative materials and information currently in 12 possession of the City and which the City believes need special protection from publi 13 disclosure and from use for any purpose other than prosecuting this litigation. Plaintiff 14 is also seeking official information contained in the persorulel files ofthe police officer 15 involved in the subject incident, which the City maintains as strictly confidential an 16 which the City believes need special protection from public disclosure and from use fc 17 any purpose other than prosecuting this litigation. 18 The City asserts that the confidentiality of the materials and information sougY 19 by Plaintiff is recognized by California and federal law, as evidenced inter alia b; 2 0 California Penal Code section 832.7 and Kerr v. United States Dist. Ct.for N.D. Cal 21 511 F.2d 192, 198(9th Cir. 1975), affd,426 U.S. 394(1976). The City has not pul 22 released the materials and information referenced above except under protective 23 or pursuant to a court order, if at all. These materials and information are of the 24 that has been used to initiate disciplinary action against Los Angeles Police Depart "LAPD") officers, and has been used as evidence in disciplinary proceedings, when 25 ( 2 6 the officers' conduct was considered to be contrary to LAPD policy. 27 The City contends that absent a protective order delineating the responsibilities o 28 nondisclosure on the part ofthe parties hereto,there is a specific risk ofunnecessary anc 2 Ca~~ 2:17-cv-06984-SVW-E Document 33-1 Filed 04/10/18 Page 3 of 16 Page ID #:183 1 ~ undue disclosure by one or more of the many attorneys, secretaries, law cler 2 ~ ~ paralegals and expert witnesses involved in this case, as well as the corollary risk o 3 embarrassment, harassment and professional and legal harm on the part of the 4 officers referenced in the materials and information. 5 The City also contends that the unfettered disclosure of the materials an. 6 information, absent a protective order, would allow the media to share this information 7 with potential jurors in the area, impacting the rights of the City herein to receive a fai 8 trial. 9 Accordingly, to expedite the flow of information, to facilitate the 10 resolution of disputes over confidentiality of discovery materials, to adequately prc 11 information the parties are entitled to keep confidential, to ensure that the parties 12 permitted reasonable necessary uses of such material in preparation for and in 13 conduct of trial, to address their handling at the end ofthe litigation, and serve the E 14 ofjustice, a protective order for such information is justified in this matter. It is 15 intent of the parties that information will not be designated as confidential for tac 16 reasons and that nothing be so designated without a good faith belief that it has 1 17 maintained in a confidential, non-public manner, and there is good cause why it sh 18 not be part ofthe public record of this case. 19 20 C .

Designations tha 4 are shown to be clearly unjustified or that have been made for an improper purpose (e.g. 5 to unnecessarily encumber the case development process or to impose unnecessary 6 expenses and burdens on other parties) may expose the Designating Pariy to sanctions. 7 If it comes to a Designating Party's attention that information or items that i 8 designated for protection do not qualify for protection, that Designating Party mus 9 promptly notify all other Parties that it is withdrawing the inapplicable designation. 10 11 S .2 Manner and Timing of Designations. Except as otherwise provided 12 this Order (see, e.g., second paragraph of section 5.2(a) below), or as otherw 13 stipulated or ordered, Disclosure or Discovery Material that qualifies for protecti 14 under this Order must be clearly so designated before the material is disclosed 15 produced. 16 Designation in conformity with this Order requires: 17 ( for information in documentary form (e.g., paper or electronic documents, b a) 18 excluding transcripts of depositions or other pretrial or trial proceedings), that tt 19 Producing Party affix at a minimum, the legend "CONFIDENTIAL" or words of 2 0 similar effect, and that includes the case name and case number (hereinaft CONFIDENTIAL legend"), to each page that contains protected material. If only 21 " 22 portion ofthe material on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also mu 23 clearly identify the protected portions)(e.g., by making appropriate markings in tt 2 4 margins). 25 A Party or Non-Party that makes original documents available for inspection neec 2 6 not designate them for protection until after the inspecting Party has indicated whicY 27 documents it would like copied and produced.

After the inspecting Party has identified the documents it wa 2 copied and produced,the Producing Party must determine which documents, or porti~ 3 thereof, qualify for protection under this Order. Then, before producing the specif 4 documents,the Producing Party must affix the "CONFIDENTIAL legend" to each p. 5 that contains Protected Material. If only a portion ofthe material on a page qualifies 6 protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the protected portions)(e 7 by making appropriate markings in the margins). 8 ( for testimony given in depositions that the Designating Party identifies b) 9 Disclosure or Discovery Material on the record, before the close of the deposition 10 ~ protected testimony. 11 ( for information produced in some form other than documentary and for a: c) 12 other tangible items, that the Producing Party affix in a prominent place on the exteri 13 of the container or containers in which the information is stored the le~e~ CONFIDENTIAL."

If timely corrected, an inadvertf failure to designate qualified information or items does not, standing alone, waive 1 19 Designating Party's right to secure protection under this Order for such material.

Frivolous challenges, and those made for an improper purpose (e.g., 3 to harass or impose unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) may expose the 4 Challenging Party to sanctions. Unless the Designating Party has waived or withdrawn 5 the confidentiality designation, all parties shall continue to afford the material in 6 question the level of protection to which it is entitled under the Producing Party's 7 designation until the Court rules on the challenge. 8 . 9 7 10 ACCESS TO AND USE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 7 .1 Basic Principles.
