[DISCOVERY MATTER REFERRED TO U.S. MAGISTRATE JUDGE] Magistrate Judge: Suzanne H. Segal Roybal Federal Building and United States Courthouse, 255 E. Temple St., Los Angeles CA, 90012, Courtroom 590, 5th floor ________________________________________________________________________________ STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Case No. 2:17-cv-7229-FMO (SSx) 13946390.1 1 1. PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS 2 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 stipulated to and petitioned the Court 6 to enter the following Stipulated Protective Order: 7 The parties acknowledge that this Order does not confer blanket protections 8 on all disclosures or responses to discovery and that the protection it affords from 9 public disclosure and use extends only to the limited information or items that are 10 entitled to confidential treatment under the applicable legal principles. The parties 11 further acknowledge, as set forth in Section 13.3, below, that this Stipulated 12 Protective Order does not entitle them to file confidential information under seal. 13 Instead, Civil Local Rule 79-5 sets forth the procedures that must be followed and 14 the standards that will be applied when a party seeks permission from the Court to 15 file material under seal. 16 2. GOOD CAUSE STATEMENT 17 This action is likely to involve proprietary business information for which 18 special protection from public disclosure and from use for any purpose other than 19 prosecution of this action is warranted. Such confidential and proprietary materials 20 and information consist of, among other things, information related to 21 confidential business practices related to manufacturing processes, information 22 otherwise generally unavailable to the public, or which may be privileged or 23 otherwise protected from disclosure under state or federal statutes, court rules, case 24 decisions, or common law. Accordingly, to expedite the flow of information, to 25 facilitate the prompt resolution of disputes over confidentiality of discovery 26 materials, to adequately protect information the parties are entitled to keep 27 confidential, to ensure that the parties are permitted reasonable necessary uses of 28 such material in preparation for and in the conduct of trial, to address their handling 1 _______________________________________________________________________________________ STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Case No. 2:17-cv-7229-FMO (SSx) 13946390.1 1 at the end of the litigation, and serve the ends of justice, a protective order for such 2 information is justified in this matter. It is the intent of the parties that information 3 will not be designated as confidential for tactical reasons and that nothing be so 4 designated without a good faith belief that it has been maintained in a confidential, 5 non-public manner, and there is good cause why it should not be part of the public 6 record of this case. 7 3. DEFINITIONS 8 3.1 Action: This pending federal lawsuit. 9 3.2 Challenging Party: A Party or Non-Party that challenges the 10 11 designation of information or items under this Order. 3.3 “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items: Information (regardless of 12 how it is generated, stored or maintained) or tangible things that qualify for 13 protection under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(c), and as specified above 14 in the Good Cause Statement. 15 16 17 3.4 Counsel: Outside Counsel of Record and House Counsel (as well as their support staff). 3.5 Designating Party: A Party or Non-Party that designates information 18 or items that it produces in disclosures or in responses to discovery as 19 “CONFIDENTIAL.” 20 3.6 Disclosure or Discovery Material: All items or information, regardless 21 of the medium or manner in which it is generated, stored, or maintained (including, 22 among other things, testimony, transcripts, and tangible things), that are produced 23 or generated in disclosures or responses to discovery in this matter. 24 3.7 Expert: A person with specialized knowledge or experience in a matter 25 pertinent to the litigation who has been retained by a Party or its counsel to serve as 26 an expert witness or as a consultant in this Action. 27 28 3.8 “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items: Extremely sensitive “CONFIDENTIAL” information or items whose disclosure to another 2 _______________________________________________________________________________________ STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Case No. 2:17-cv-7229-FMO (SSx) 13946390.1 1 Party or Non-Party would create a substantial risk of serious injury that could not 2 be avoided by less restrictive means. This definition includes: (1) material which 3 has not been made public and which is protected from disclosure by federal or state 4 constitutional, statutory and common law; and (2) any confidential material that 5 constitutes or refers to trade secrets, other highly sensitive information of a 6 competitive or financial nature, or individual personal information from employee 7 files. 8 9 10 11 12 3.9 House Counsel: Attorneys who are employees of a party to this Action. House Counsel does not include Outside Counsel of Record or any other outside counsel. 3.10 Non-Party: Any natural person, partnership, corporation, association, or other legal entity not named as a Party to this action. 13 3.11 Outside Counsel of Record: Attorneys who are not employees of a 14 Party to this Action but are retained to represent or advise a Party to this Action and 15 have appeared in this Action on behalf of that Party or are affiliated with a law firm 16 which has appeared on behalf of that Party, and includes support staff. 17 3.12 Party: Any party to this Action, including all of its officers, directors, 18 employees, consultants, retained experts, and Outside Counsel of Record (and their 19 support staffs). 20 21 3.13 Producing Party: A Party or Non-Party that produces Disclosure or Discovery Material in this Action. 22 3.14 Professional Vendors: Persons or entities that provide litigation 23 support services (e.g., photocopying, videotaping, translating, preparing exhibits or 24 demonstrations, and organizing, storing, or retrieving data in any form or medium) 25 and their employees and subcontractors. 26 27 3.15 Protected Material: Any Disclosure or Discovery Material that is designated as “CONFIDENTIAL” or “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL.” 28 3 _______________________________________________________________________________________ STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Case No. 2:17-cv-7229-FMO (SSx) 13946390.1 1 2 3.16 Receiving Party: A Party that receives Disclosure or Discovery Material from a Producing Party. 3 4. 4 The protections conferred by this Stipulation and Order cover not only 5 Protected Material (as defined above), but also (1) any information copied or 6 extracted from Protected Material; (2) all copies, excerpts, summaries, or 7 compilations of Protected Material; and (3) any testimony, conversations, or 8 presentations by Parties or their Counsel that might reveal Protected Material. 9 10 SCOPE 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. 11 5. DURATION 12 The Parties agree that even after final disposition of this litigation, they intend 13 to abide by the confidentiality obligations imposed by this Order until a Designating 14 Party agrees otherwise in writing. Final disposition shall be deemed to be the later 15 of: (1) dismissal of all claims and defenses in this Action, with or without prejudice; 16 and (2) final judgment herein after the completion and exhaustion of all appeals, 17 rehearings, remands, trials, or reviews of this Action, including the time limits for 18 filing any motions or applications for extension of time pursuant to applicable law. 19 However, once a case proceeds to trial, information that was designated as 20 confidential or maintained pursuant to this protective order that is used or 21 introduced as an exhibit at trial becomes pubic and will be presumptively available 22 to all members of the public, including the press, unless compelling reasons 23 supported by specific factual findings to proceed otherwise are made to the trial 24 judge in advance of the trial. See Kamakana v. City & County of Honolulu, 447 25 F.3d. 1172, 1180-81 (9th Cir. 2006). Accordingly, the terms of this protective order 26 do not extend beyond the commencement of trial to the extent it applies to 27 documents or information that was used or introduced as an exhibit at trial or the 28 subject matter of trial testimony. 4 _______________________________________________________________________________________ STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Case No. 2:17-cv-7229-FMO (SSx) 13946390.1 1 6. DESIGNATING PROTECTED MATERIAL 2 6.1 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, 8 items, or communications for which protection is not warranted are not swept 9 unjustifiably 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 6.2 Manner and Timing of Designations. Except as otherwise provided in 19 this Order (see, e.g., second paragraph of Section 6.2(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” or “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL,” to each page that contains 28 protected material. If only a portion or portions of the material on a page qualifies 5 _______________________________________________________________________________________ STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Case No. 2:17-cv-7229-FMO (SSx) 13946390.1 1 for protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the protected 2 portion(s) (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 “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL.” After the inspecting Party has identified 8 the documents it wants copied and produced, the Producing Party must determine 9 which documents, or portions thereof, qualify for protection under this Order. Then, 10 before producing the specified documents, the Producing Party must affix the 11 appropriate legend (either “CONFIDENTIAL” or “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL”) 12 to each page that contains Protected Material. If only a portion or portions of the 13 material on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also must clearly 14 identify the protected portion(s) (e.g., by making appropriate markings in the 15 margins). 16 (b) for testimony given in depositions, that the Designating Party identify the 17 Disclosure or Discovery Material on the record, before the close of the deposition, 18 and further specify any portions that qualify as “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL.” 19 (c) for information produced in some form other than documentary and for 20 any other tangible items, that the Producing Party affix in a prominent place on the 21 exterior of the container or containers in which the information is stored the legend 22 “CONFIDENTIAL” or “HIGHLY 23 portions of the information warrants protection, the Producing Party, to the extent 24 practicable, shall identify the protected portion(s). 25 6.3 CONFIDENTIAL.” If only a portion or Inadvertent Failures to Designate. If timely corrected, an inadvertent 26 failure to designate qualified information or items does not, standing alone, waive 27 the Designating Party’s right to secure protection under this Order for such material. 28 Upon timely correction of a designation, the Receiving Party must make reasonable 6 _______________________________________________________________________________________ STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Case No. 2:17-cv-7229-FMO (SSx) 13946390.1 1 efforts to assure that the material is treated in accordance with the provisions of this 2 Order. 3 7. CHALLENGING CONFIDENTIALITY DESIGNATIONS 4 7.1 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. 7 8 9 7.2 Meet and Confer. The Challenging Party shall initiate the dispute resolution process under Local Rule 37.1, et seq. 7.3 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 8. ACCESS TO AND USE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 18 8.1 Basic Principles. A Receiving Party may use Protected Material that 19 is disclosed or produced by another Party or by a Non-Party in connection with this 20 Action only for prosecuting, defending, or attempting to settle this Action. Such 21 Protected Material may be disclosed only to the categories of persons and under the 22 conditions described in this Order. When the Action has been terminated, a 23 Receiving Party must comply with the provisions of Section 14 below (FINAL 24 DISPOSITION). Protected Material must be stored and maintained by a Receiving 25 Party at a location and in a secure manner that ensures that access is limited to the 26 persons authorized under this Order. 27 28 8.2 Disclosure of “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items. Unless otherwise ordered by the Court or permitted in writing by the Designating Party, a 7 _______________________________________________________________________________________ STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Case No. 2:17-cv-7229-FMO (SSx) 13946390.1 1 Receiving Party may disclose 2 any information or item designated “CONFIDENTIAL” only to: 3 (a) the Receiving Party’s Outside Counsel of Record in this Action, as well 4 as employees of said Outside Counsel of Record to whom it is reasonably 5 necessary to disclose the information for this Action; 6 7 (b) the officers, directors, and employees (including House Counsel) of the Receiving Party to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action; 8 (c) Experts (as defined in this Order) of the Receiving Party to whom 9 disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action and who have signed the 10 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); 11 (d) the court and its personnel; 12 (e) court reporters and their staff; 13 (f) professional jury or trial consultants, mock jurors, and Professional 14 Vendors to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action and who have 15 signed the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); 16 17 18 19 20 (g) the author or recipient of a document containing the information or a custodian or other person who otherwise possessed or knew the information; and (h) any mediator or settlement officer, and their supporting personnel, mutually agreed upon by any of the parties engaged in settlement discussions. 8.3 Disclosure of “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items: 21 Unless otherwise ordered by the Court or permitted in writing by the Designating 22 Party, a Receiving Party may disclose any information or item designated 23 “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL” only to: 24 (a) the Receiving Party’s Outside Counsel of record in this action, as well as 25 employees of said Counsel to whom it is reasonably necessary to disclose the 26 information for this Action; 27 (b) the Receiving Party’s House Counsel; 28 8 _______________________________________________________________________________________ STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Case No. 2:17-cv-7229-FMO (SSx) 13946390.1 1 (c) Experts (as defined in this Order): (1) to whom disclosure is reasonably 2 necessary for this litigation; and (2) who have signed the “Acknowledgment and 3 Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); 4 (d) the Court and its personnel; 5 (e) court reporters, their staffs, and professional vendors to whom disclosure 6 is reasonably necessary for this litigation and who have signed the 7 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); and 8 (f) the author of the document or the original source of the information. 9 9. 10 PROTECTED MATERIAL SUBPOENAED OR ORDERED PRODUCED IN OTHER LITIGATION 11 If a Party is served with a subpoena or a court order issued in other litigation 12 that compels disclosure of any information or items designated in this Action as 13 “CONFIDENTIAL” or “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL,” that Party must: 14 15 (a) promptly notify in writing the Designating Party. Such notification shall include a copy of the subpoena or court order; 16 (b) promptly notify in writing the party who caused the subpoena or order to 17 issue in the other litigation that some or all of the material covered by the subpoena 18 or order is subject to this Protective Order. Such notification shall include a copy 19 of this Stipulated Protective Order; and 20 21 (c) cooperate with respect to all reasonable procedures sought to be pursued by the Designating Party whose Protected Material may be affected. 22 If the Designating Party timely seeks a protective order, the Party served with 23 the subpoena or court order shall not produce any information designated in this 24 action as “CONFIDENTIAL” or “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL” before a 25 determination by the court from which the subpoena or order issued, unless the 26 Party has obtained the Designating Party’s permission. The Designating Party shall 27 bear the burden and expense of seeking protection in that court of its confidential 28 material and nothing in these provisions should be construed as authorizing or 9 _______________________________________________________________________________________ STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Case No. 2:17-cv-7229-FMO (SSx) 13946390.1 1 encouraging a Receiving Party in this Action to disobey a lawful directive from 2 another court. 3 4 10. A NON-PARTY’S PROTECTED MATERIAL SOUGHT TO BE PRODUCED IN THIS LITIGATION 5 The terms of this Order are applicable to information produced by a Non- 6 Party in this Action and designated as “CONFIDENTIAL” or “HIGHLY 7 CONFIDENTIAL.” Such information produced by Non-Parties in connection with 8 this litigation is protected by the remedies and relief provided by this Order. 9 Nothing in these provisions should be construed as prohibiting a Non-Party from 10 seeking additional protections. 11 In the event that a Party is required, by a valid discovery request, to produce 12 a Non-Party’s confidential information in its possession, and the Party is subject to 13 an agreement with the Non-Party not to produce the Non-Party’s confidential 14 information, then the Party shall: 15 (a) promptly notify in writing the Requesting Party and the Non-Party that 16 some or all of the information requested is subject to a confidentiality agreement 17 with a Non-Party; 18 (b) promptly provide the Non-Party with a copy of the Stipulated Protective 19 Order in this Action, the relevant discovery request(s), and a reasonably specific 20 description of the information requested; and 21 (c) make the information requested available for inspection by the Non-Party, 22 if requested. If the Non-Party fails to seek a protective order from this Court within 23 14 days of receiving the notice and accompanying information, the Receiving Party 24 may produce the Non-Party’s confidential information responsive to the discovery 25 request. If the Non-Party timely seeks a protective order, the Receiving Party 26 shall not produce any information in its possession or control that is subject to the 27 confidentiality agreement with the Non-Party before a determination by the Court. 28 10 _______________________________________________________________________________________ STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Case No. 2:17-cv-7229-FMO (SSx) 13946390.1 1 Absent a court order to the contrary, the Non-Party shall bear the burden and 2 expense of seeking protection in this court of its Protected Material. 3 11. UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 4 5 If a Receiving Party learns that, by inadvertence or otherwise, it has disclosed 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 10 or persons to whom unauthorized disclosures were made of all the terms of this 11 Order; 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 12. INADVERTENT PRODUCTION OF PRIVILEGED OR OTHERWISE PROTECTED MATERIAL 15 The inadvertent disclosure of any privileged or work-product protected 16 documents shall not constitute a waiver of any privilege or protection in this case or 17 in any other federal or state proceeding. This paragraph of this protective order shall 18 be interpreted to provide the maximum protection allowed by Federal Rule of 19 Evidence 502(d). In the case of inadvertently produced privileged and/or work- 20 Product documents, the documents together with all copies thereof shall be returned 21 to the party claiming privilege and/or work-product immunity, or, in the alternative, 22 the Receiving Parties shall take reasonable steps to destroy said documents and 23 copies thereof, within seven days of receipt of notice of the inadvertent production. 24 Any notes or summaries made therefrom also shall be destroyed. The obligation to 25 destroy documents does not extend to archival and back-up tapes; however, the 26 party returning the documents agrees not to access the documents claimed to be 27 inadvertently produced using its archival and back-up tapes. The Receiving 28 Parties who return inadvertently produced documents pursuant to this order do not 11 _______________________________________________________________________________________ STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Case No. 2:17-cv-7229-FMO (SSx) 13946390.1 1 waive their right to challenge the privileged and/or work-product status of those 2 documents. 3 inadvertently produced documents may, at that time, challenge the privileged and/or 4 work-product claim by filing a Motion to Compel along with a copy of the returned 5 documents to the Court under seal to be opened in camera. In support of such a challenge, the Receiving Parties returning 6 13. 7 13.1 Right to Further Relief. Nothing in this Order abridges the right of any 8 MISCELLANEOUS person to seek its modification by the Court in the future. 9 13.2 Right to Assert Other Objections. By stipulating to the entry of this 10 Protective Order, no Party waives any right it otherwise would have to object 11 to disclosing or producing any information or item on any ground not addressed in 12 this Stipulated Protective Order. Similarly, no Party waives any right to object on 13 any ground to use in evidence of any of the material covered by this Protective 14 Order. 15 13.3 Filing Protected Material. A Party that seeks to file any Protected 16 Material must comply with Civil Local Rule 79-5. If a Party’s request to file 17 Protected Material under seal is denied by the Court, then the Receiving Party may 18 file the information in the public record unless otherwise instructed by the Court. 19 14. FINAL DISPOSITION 20 After the final disposition of this Action, as defined in Section 5 21 (DURATION), within 60 days of a written request by the Designating Party, each 22 Receiving Party must return all Protected Material to the Producing Party or destroy 23 such material. As used in this subdivision, “all Protected Material” includes all 24 copies, abstracts, compilations, summaries, and any other format reproducing or 25 capturing any of the Protected Material. Whether the Protected Material is returned 26 or destroyed, the Receiving Party must submit a written certification to the 27 Producing Party (and, if not the same person or entity, to the Designating Party) by 28 the 60 day deadline that (1) identifies (by category, where appropriate) all the 12 _______________________________________________________________________________________ STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Case No. 2:17-cv-7229-FMO (SSx) 13946390.1 1 Protected Material that was returned or destroyed and (2) affirms that the Receiving 2 Party has not retained any copies, abstracts, compilations, summaries or any other 3 format reproducing or capturing any of the Protected Material. Notwithstanding 4 this provision, Counsel are entitled to retain an archival copy of all pleadings, 5 motion papers, trial, deposition, and hearing transcripts, legal memoranda, 6 correspondence, deposition and trial exhibits, expert reports, attorney work product, 7 and consultant and expert work product, even if such materials contain Protected 8 Material. Any such archival copies that contain or constitute Protected Material 9 remain subject to this Protective Order as set forth in Section 5 (DURATION). 10 15. VIOLATION OF THIS ORDER 11 Any violation of this Order may be punished by any and all appropriate 12 measures including, without limitation, contempt proceedings and/or monetary 13 sanctions. 14 15 IT IS SO STIPULATED THROUGH COUNSEL OF RECORD: 16 17 DATED: November 13, 2017 18 THE LAW OFFICES OF GEORGE A.
