The Designating Party must designate for protection 27 only those parts of material, documents, items, or oral or written communications that 28 [ -4]PROTECTIVE ORDER ~ Case '.:17-cv-07460-FMO-ArR Document 14 Filed 02/08/18 Page 10 of 19 Page ID #:268 1 qualify so that other portions of the material, documents, items, or communications 2 f which protection is not warranted are not unjustifiably included within the ambit or 3 of this Protective Order. 4 If it comes to a Designating Party's attention that information or items that it 5 designated for protection do not qualify for protection, that Designating Party must 6 promptly notify all other Parties that it is withdrawing the mistaken designation. 7 5.2 Manner and Timing of Designations. Except as otherwise provided in 8 this Protective Order, or as otherwise stipulated or ordered, Disclosure or Discovery 9 Material that qualifies for protection under this Protective Order must be clearly so 10 11 12 designated before the material is disclosed or produced. Designation in conformity with this Protective Order requires: ( a) For information in documentary form (e.g., paper or electronic 13 documents, including discovery responses, but excluding transcripts of depositions or 14 other pretrial or trial proceedings), that the Producing Party affix the legend 15 " CONFIDENTIAL-SUBJECT TO PROTECTIVE ORDER" to each page that 16 contains protected material. If only a portion or portions of the material on a page 17 qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the protected 18 portions)(e.g., by making appropriate markings in the margins). 19 A Party or Non-Party that makes original documents or materials available for 20 inspection need not designate them for protection until after the inspecting Party has 21 indicated which material it would like copied and produced. During the inspection 22 and before the designation, all ofthe material made available for inspection shall be 23 deemed "CONFIDENTIAL-SUBJECT TO PROTECTIVE ORDER." After the 24 inspecting Party has identified the documents it wants copied and produced, the 25 Producing Party must determine which documents, or portions thereof qualify for 2 6 protection under this Order. Then, before producing the specified documents, the 27 Producing Party must affix the "CONFIDENTIALSUBJECT TO PROTECTIVE 28 - 5PROTECTIVE ORDER Case~~:17-cv-07460-FMO-ArR Document 14 Filed 02/08/18 Page 11 of 19 Page ID #:269 1 ORDER" legend to each page that contains Protected Material. If only a portion or 2 portions of the material on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also 3 must clearly identify the protected portions)(e.g., by making appropriate markings in 4 the margins). 5 ( b) For testimony given in deposition~i~~ V*'~~r rrAtri~i ,,,- +,-;.~ that the Designating Party either:(i) identify the protected testimony on 6 • or (ii) send 7 the record, before the close of the deposition a letter to all counsel within the time permitted for the review and signing of the ~ `~' g 9 deposition by the witness (in the event of a deposition) 10 11 identifying the protected testimony. 12 (c) For information produced in some form other than documentary 13 and for any other tangible items, that the Producing Party affix in a prominent place 14 on the exterior ofthe container or containers in which the information or item is stored 15 the legend "CONFIDENTIAL-SUBJECT TO PROTECTIVE ORDER." If only a 16 , portion or portions of the information or item warrant protection, the Producing Party, 17 to the extent practicable, shall identify the protected portion(s). 18 5.3 Inadvertent Failures to Designate. If timely corrected,~an inadvertent 19 f ailure to designate qualified information or items does not, standing alone, waive the 20 Designating Party's right to secure protection under this Protective Order for such 21 material. Upon timely correction of a designation, the Receiving Party must make 22 reasonable efforts to assure that the material is treated in accordance with the 23 provisions of this Protective Order. 24 6 . CHALLENGING CONFIDENTIALITY DESIGNATIONS 25 6.1 2 6 Timing of Challenges.

Document 14 Filed 02/08/18 P~~e 12 of 19 Page ID #:270 1 is necessary to avoid foreseeable, substantial unfairness, unnecessary economic 2 burdens, or a significant disruption or delay of the litigation, a Party does not waive its 3 right to challenge a confidentiality designation by electing not to mount a challenge 4 promptly after the original designation is disclosed. 5 6.2 Meet and Confer. The Challenging Party shall initiate the dispute 6 resolution process by providing written notice of each designation it is challenging 7 and describing the basis for each challenge. To avoid ambiguity as to whether a 8 challenge has been made, the written notice must recite that the challenge to 9 confidentiality is being made in accordance with this specific paragraph of this 10 Protective Order. The parties shall attempt to resolve each challenge in good faith and 11 must begin the process by conferring directly (in voice to voice dialogue; other forms 12 of communication are not sufficient). In conferring, the Challenging Party must 13 explain the basis for its belief that the confidentiality designation was not proper and 14 must give the Designating Party an opportunity to review the designated material, to 15 reconsider the circumstances, and, if no change in designation is offered, to explain 16 the basis for the chosen designation. A Challenging Party may proceed to the next 17 stage of the challenge process only if it has engaged in this meet and confer process 18 f or establishes that the Designating Party is unwilling to participate in the meet irst 19 and confer process in a timely manner. 2 0 21 6.3 Judicial Intervention. If the Parties cannot resolve a challenge without court intervention, the Parties shall file and serve a Joint Stipulation following the 22 procedure set forth in Local Rule 37. The Stipulation must be accompanied by a 23 competent declaration affirming that the Parties complied with the meet and confer 24 requirements imposed in the preceding paragraph. 25 The burden of proof in any such challenge proceeding shall be on the 2 Designating Party.
