PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS 25 Discovery in this action is likely to involve production of confidential, 26 proprietary, or private information for which special protection from public 27 disclosure and from use for any purpose other than prosecuting this litigation may 28 1 _____________________________________________________________________________ 1 be warranted. Accordingly, the parties hereby stipulate to and petition the Court to 2 enter the following Stipulated Protective Order. The parties acknowledge that this 3 Order does not confer blanket protections on all disclosures or responses to 4 discovery and that the protection it affords from public disclosure and use extends 5 only to the limited information or items that are entitled to confidential treatment 6 under the applicable legal principles. 7 8 B. GOOD CAUSE STATEMENT 9 This case involves police use of excessive force. Discovery in this action is 10 likely to involve the production of sensitive, confidential documents pertaining to 11 and contained in the private employment personnel file of Defendant Long Beach 12 Police Department officers, which include as follows: Officer Joseph John Calise, 13 Officer Joel Johnson, Officer Braulio Carbajal, and Officer Feliciano Reyes, Jr. 14 (collectively herein “Defendant Officers”) Production and disclosure of these 15 confidential personnel file documents without this protective order may subject 16 Defendant Officers to unwarranted and unnecessary embarrassment, harassment, 17 and/or violation of Defendant Officers’ rights of privacy. 18 Accordingly, to expedite the flow of information, to facilitate the prompt 19 resolution of disputes over confidentiality of discovery materials, to adequately 20 protect information the parties are entitled to keep confidential, to ensure that the 21 parties are permitted reasonable necessary uses of such material in preparation for 22 and in the conduct of trial, to address their handling at the end of the litigation, and 23 serve the ends of justice, a protective order for such information is justified in this 24 matter. It is the intent of the parties that information will not be designated as 25 confidential for tactical reasons and that nothing be so designated without a good 26 faith belief that it has been maintained in a confidential, non-public manner, and 27 there is good cause why it should not be part of the public record of this case. 28 /// 2 _____________________________________________________________________________ 1 C. ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF PROCEDURE FOR FILING UNDER SEAL 2 The parties further acknowledge, as set forth in Section 12.3, below, that this 3 Stipulated Protective Order does not entitle them to file confidential information 4 under seal; Local Civil Rule 79-5 sets forth the procedures that must be followed 5 and the standards that will be applied when a party seeks permission from the court 6 to file material under seal. 7 There is a strong presumption that the public has a right of access to judicial 8 proceedings and records in civil cases. In connection with non-dispositive motions, 9 good cause must be shown to support a filing under seal. See Kamakana v. City and 10 County of Honolulu, 447 F.3d 1172, 1176 (9th Cir. 2006), Phillips v. Gen. Motors 11 Corp., 307 F.3d 1206, 1210-11 (9th Cir. 2002), Makar-Welbon v. Sony Electrics, 12 Inc., 187 F.R.D. 576, 577 (E.D. Wis. 1999) (even stipulated protective orders require 13 good cause showing), and a specific showing of good cause or compelling reasons 14 with proper evidentiary support and legal justification, must be made with respect to 15 Protected Material that a party seeks to file under seal. The parties’ mere designation 16 of Disclosure or Discovery Material as CONFIDENTIAL does not—without the 17 submission of competent evidence by declaration, establishing that the material 18 sought to be filed under seal qualifies as confidential, privileged, or otherwise 19 protectable—constitute good cause. 20 Further, if a party requests sealing related to a dispositive motion or trial, then 21 compelling reasons, not only good cause, for the sealing must be shown, and the 22 relief sought shall be narrowly tailored to serve the specific interest to be protected. 23 See Pintos v. Pacific Creditors Ass’n, 605 F.3d 665, 677-79 (9th Cir. 2010). For 24 25 26 27 28 each item or type of information, document, or thing sought to be filed or introduced under seal in connection with a dispositive motion or trial, the party seeking protection must articulate compelling reasons, supported by specific facts and legal justification, for the requested sealing order. Again, competent evidence supporting 3 _____________________________________________________________________________ 1 the application to file documents under seal must be provided by declaration. 2 Any document that is not confidential, privileged, or otherwise protectable in 3 its entirety will not be filed under seal if the confidential portions can be redacted. If 4 documents can be redacted, then a redacted version for public viewing, omitting only 5 the confidential, privileged, or otherwise protectable portions of the document, shall 6 be filed. Any application that seeks to file documents under seal in their entirety 7 should include an explanation of why redaction is not feasible. 8 9 2. DEFINITIONS 10 2.1 Action: This pending federal lawsuit. 11 2.2 Challenging Party: A Party or Non-Party that challenges the 12 13 designation of information or items under this Order. 2.3 “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items: Information (regardless of 14 how it is generated, stored or maintained) or tangible things that qualify for 15 protection under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(c), and as specified above in 16 the Good Cause Statement. 17 18 19 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 20 items that it produces in disclosures or in responses to discovery as 21 “CONFIDENTIAL.” 22 2.6 Disclosure or Discovery Material: All items or information, regardless 23 of the medium or manner in which it is generated, stored, or maintained (including, 24 among other things, testimony, transcripts, and tangible things), that are produced or 25 generated in disclosures or responses to discovery in this matter. 26 2.7 Expert: A person with specialized knowledge or experience in a matter 27 pertinent to the litigation who has been retained by a Party or its counsel to serve as 28 an expert witness or as a consultant in this Action. 4 _____________________________________________________________________________ 1 2.8 House Counsel: Attorneys who are employees of a party to this Action. 2 House Counsel does not include Outside Counsel of Record or any other outside 3 counsel. 4 5 2.9 Non-Party: Any natural person, partnership, corporation, association, or other legal entity not named as a Party to this action. 6 2.10 Outside Counsel of Record: Attorneys who are not employees of a party 7 to this Action but are retained to represent or advise a party to this Action and have 8 appeared in this Action on behalf of that party or are affiliated with a law firm which 9 has appeared on behalf of that party, and includes support staff. 10 2.11 Party: Any party to this Action, including all of its officers, directors, 11 employees, consultants, retained experts, and Outside Counsel of Record (and their 12 support staffs). 13 14 2.12 Producing Party: A Party or Non-Party that produces Disclosure or Discovery Material in this Action. 15 2.13 Professional Vendors: Persons or entities that provide litigation 16 support services (e.g., photocopying, videotaping, translating, preparing exhibits or 17 demonstrations, and organizing, storing, or retrieving data in any form or medium) 18 and their employees and subcontractors. 19 20 2.14 Protected Material: Any Disclosure or Discovery Material that is designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” 21 2.15 Receiving Party: a Party that receives Disclosure or Discovery Material 22 from a Producing Party. 23 3. 24 SCOPE 25 The protections conferred by this Stipulation and Order cover not only 26 Protected Material (as defined above), but also (1) any information copied or 27 extracted from Protected Material; (2) all copies, excerpts, summaries, or 28 compilations of Protected Material; and (3) any testimony, conversations, or 5 _____________________________________________________________________________ 1 presentations by Parties or their Counsel that might reveal Protected Material. 2 3 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. 4 5 4. 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 DURATION FINAL DISPOSITION of the action is defined as the conclusion of any appellate proceedings, or, if no appeal is taken, when the time for filing of an appeal has run. Except as set forth below, the terms of this protective order apply through FINAL DISPOSITION of the action. ONCE A CASE PROCEEDS TO TRIAL, INFORMATION THAT WAS DESIGNATED AS CONFIDENTIAL OR MAINTAINED PURSUANT TO THIS PROTECTIVE ORDER USED OR INTRODUCED AS AN EXHIBIT AT TRIAL BECOMES PUBLIC AND WILL BE PRESUMPTIVELY AVAILABLE TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC, INCLUDING THE PRESS, UNLESS COMPELLING REASONS SUPPORTED BY SPECIFIC FACTUAL FINDINGS TO PROCEED OTHERWISE ARE MADE TO THE TRIAL JUDGE IN ADVANCE OF THE TRIAL. SEE KAMAKANA, 447 F.3D AT 1180-81 (DISTINGUISHING CAUSE” DOCUMENTS “GOOD PRODUCED IN SHOWING DISCOVERY FROM FOR SEALING “COMPELLING REASONS” STANDARD WHEN MERITS-RELATED DOCUMENTS ARE PART OF COURT RECORD). ACCORDINGLY, FOR SUCH MATERIALS, THE TERMS OF THIS PROTECTIVE ORDER DO NOT EXTEND BEYOND THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE TRIAL. 5. DESIGNATING PROTECTED MATERIAL 5.1 Exercise of Restraint and Care in Designating Material for Protection. Each Party or Non-Party that designates information or items for protection under 6 _____________________________________________________________________________ 1 this Order must take care to limit any such designation to specific material that 2 qualifies under the appropriate standards. The Designating Party must designate for 3 protection only those parts of material, documents, items, or oral or written 4 communications that qualify so that other portions of the material, documents, 5 items, or communications for which protection is not warranted are not swept 6 unjustifiably within the ambit of this Order. 7 8 Mass, indiscriminate, or routinized designations are prohibited. Designations 9 that are shown to be clearly unjustified or that have been made for an improper 10 purpose (e.g., to unnecessarily encumber the case development process or to impose 11 unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) may expose the Designating 12 Party to sanctions. 13 If it comes to a Designating Party’s attention that information or items that it 14 designated for protection do not qualify for protection, that Designating Party must 15 promptly notify all other Parties that it is withdrawing the inapplicable designation. 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 5.2 Manner and Timing of Designations. Except as otherwise provided in this Order (see, e.g., second paragraph of section 5.2(a) below), or as otherwise stipulated or ordered, Disclosure or Discovery Material that qualifies for protection under this Order must be clearly so designated before the material is disclosed or produced. Designation in conformity with this Order requires: 23 (a) for information in documentary form (e.g., paper or electronic documents, 24 but excluding transcripts of depositions or other pretrial or trial proceedings), that 25 the Producing Party affix at a minimum, the legend “CONFIDENTIAL” (hereinafter 26 “CONFIDENTIAL legend”), to each page that contains protected material. If only 27 a portion or portions of the material on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing 28 7 _____________________________________________________________________________ 1 Party also must clearly identify the protected portion(s) (e.g., by making appropriate 2 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 that 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 “CONFIDENTIAL legend” to each page that contains Protected Material. If only a 12 portion or portions of the material on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing 13 Party also must clearly identify the protected portion(s) (e.g., by making appropriate 14 markings in the margins). 15 (b) for testimony given in depositions that the Designating Party identify 16 the Disclosure or Discovery Material on the record, before the close of the deposition 17 all protected testimony. 18 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.” If only a portion or portions of the information warrants 23 protection, the Producing Party, to the extent practicable, shall identify the protected 24 portion(s). 25 5.3 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 8 _____________________________________________________________________________ 1 efforts to assure that the material is treated in accordance with the provisions of this 2 Order. 3 4 6. CHALLENGING CONFIDENTIALITY DESIGNATIONS 6.1 5 Timing of Challenges. Any Party or Non-Party may challenge a 6 designation of confidentiality at any time that is consistent with the Court’s 7 Scheduling Order. 6.2 8 9 Meet and Confer. The Challenging Party shall initiate the dispute resolution process under Local Rule 37.1 et seq. 6.3 10 The burden of persuasion in any such challenge proceeding shall be on 11 the Designating Party. Frivolous challenges, and those made for an improper 12 purpose (e.g., to harass or impose unnecessary expenses and burdens on other 13 parties) may expose the Challenging Party to sanctions. Unless the Designating Party 14 has waived or withdrawn the confidentiality designation, all parties shall continue to 15 afford the material in question the level of protection to which it is entitled under the 16 Producing Party’s designation until the Court rules on the challenge. 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 7. ACCESS TO AND USE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 7.1 Basic Principles. A Receiving Party may use Protected Material that is disclosed or produced by another Party or by a Non-Party in connection with this Action only for prosecuting, defending, or attempting to settle this Action. Such Protected Material may be disclosed only to the categories of persons and under the conditions described in this Order. When the Action has been terminated, a Receiving Party must comply with the provisions of section 13 below (FINAL 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 4 “CONFIDENTIAL” only to: Party may disclose any information or item designated 5 6 (a) the Receiving Party’s Outside Counsel of Record in this Action, as well 7 as employees of said Outside Counsel of Record to whom it is reasonably necessary 8 to disclose the information for this Action; 9 10 11 (b) the officers, directors, and employees (including House Counsel) of the Receiving Party to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action; (c) experts (as defined in this Order) of the Receiving Party to whom 12 disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action and who have signed the 13 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); 14 (d) the court and its personnel; 15 (e) court reporters and their staff; 16 (f) professional jury or trial consultants, mock jurors, and Professional 17 Vendors to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action and who have 18 signed the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); 19 20 21 (g) the author or recipient of a document containing the information or a custodian or other person who otherwise possessed or knew the information; (h) during their depositions, witnesses ,and attorneys for witnesses, in the 22 Action to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary provided: (1) the deposing party 23 requests that the witness sign the form attached as Exhibit 1 hereto; and (2) they will 24 not be permitted to keep any confidential information unless they sign the 25 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A), unless otherwise 26 agreed by the Designating Party or ordered by the court. Pages of transcribed 27 deposition testimony or exhibits to depositions that reveal Protected Material may 28 10 _____________________________________________________________________________ 1 be separately bound by the court reporter and may not be disclosed to anyone except 2 as permitted under this Stipulated Protective Order; and 3 (i) any mediator or settlement officer, and their supporting personnel, 4 mutually agreed upon by any of the parties engaged in settlement discussions or 5 appointed by the Court. 6 7 8. 8 IN OTHER LITIGATION 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 PROTECTED MATERIAL SUBPOENAED OR ORDERED PRODUCED If a Party is served with a subpoena or a court order issued in other litigation that compels disclosure of any information or items designated in this Action as “CONFIDENTIAL,” that Party must: (a) promptly notify in writing the Designating Party. Such notification shall include a copy of the subpoena or court order unless prohibited by law; (b) promptly notify in writing the party who caused the subpoena or order 16 to issue in the other litigation that some or all of the material covered by the subpoena 17 or order is subject to this Protective Order. Such notification shall include a copy of 18 this Stipulated Protective Order; and 19 20 21 (c) cooperate with respect to all reasonable procedures sought to be pursued by the Designating Party whose Protected Material may be affected. (d) If the Designating Party timely seeks a protective order, the Party 22 served with the subpoena or court order shall not produce any information 23 designated in this action as “CONFIDENTIAL” before a determination by the court 24 from which the subpoena or order issued, unless the Party has obtained the 25 Designating Party’s permission. The Designating Party shall bear the burden and 26 expense of seeking protection in that court of its confidential material and nothing 27 in these provisions should be construed as authorizing or encouraging a Receiving 28 11 _____________________________________________________________________________ 1 Party in this Action to disobey a lawful directive from another court. 2 9. 3 IN THIS LITIGATION 4 NON-PARTY’S PROTECTED MATERIAL SOUGHT TO BE PRODUCED (a) The terms of this Order are applicable to information produced by a 5 Non-Party in this Action and designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” Such information 6 produced by Non-Parties in connection with this litigation is protected by the 7 remedies and relief provided by this Order. Nothing in these provisions should be 8 construed as prohibiting a Non-Party from seeking additional protections. 9 (b) In the event that a Party is required, by a valid discovery request, to 10 produce a Non-Party’s confidential information in its possession, and the Party is 11 subject to an agreement with the Non-Party not to produce the Non-Party’s 12 confidential information, then the Party shall: 13 (1) promptly notify in writing the Requesting Party and the Non- 14 Party 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 21 (3) make the information requested available for inspection by the Non-Party, if requested. (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 25 26 27 28 request. If the Non-Party timely seeks a protective order, the Receiving Party shall not produce any information in its possession or control that is subject to the confidentiality agreement with the Non-Party before a determination by the court. Absent a court order to the contrary, the Non-Party shall bear the burden and expense 12 _____________________________________________________________________________ 1 of seeking protection in this court of its Protected Material. 2 10. UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 3 4 If a Receiving Party learns that, by inadvertence or otherwise, it has disclosed 5 Protected Material to any person or in any circumstance not authorized under this 6 Stipulated Protective Order, the Receiving Party must immediately (a) notify in 7 writing the Designating Party of the unauthorized disclosures, (b) use its best efforts 8 to retrieve all unauthorized copies of the Protected Material, (c) inform the person 9 or persons to whom unauthorized disclosures were made of all the terms of this 10 Order, and (d) request such person or persons to execute the “Acknowledgment and 11 Agreement to Be Bound” that is attached hereto as Exhibit A. 12 13 14 11. INADVERTENT PRODUCTION OF PRIVILEGED OR OTHERWISE PROTECTED MATERIAL 15 When a Producing Party gives notice to Receiving Parties that certain 16 inadvertently produced material is subject to a claim of privilege or other protection, 17 the obligations of the Receiving Parties are those set forth in Federal Rule of Civil 18 Procedure 26(b)(5)(B). This provision is not intended to modify whatever procedure 19 may be established in an e-discovery order that provides for production without prior 20 privilege review. Pursuant to Federal Rule of Evidence 502(d) and (e), insofar as the 21 parties reach an agreement on the effect of disclosure of a communication or 22 information covered by the attorney-client privilege or work product protection, the 23 parties may incorporate their agreement in the stipulated protective order submitted 24 to the court provided the Court so allows. 25 26 27 28 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. 13 _____________________________________________________________________________ 1 12.2 Right to Assert Other Objections. By stipulating to the entry of this 2 Protective Order no Party waives any right it otherwise would have to object to 3 disclosing or producing any information or item on any ground not addressed in this 4 Stipulated Protective Order. Similarly, no Party waives any right to object on any 5 ground to use in evidence of any of the material covered by this Protective Order. 6 12.3 Filing Protected Material. A Party that seeks to file under seal any 7 Protected Material must comply with Civil Local Rule 79-5. Protected Material may 8 only be filed under seal pursuant to a court order authorizing the sealing of the 9 specific Protected Material at issue. If a Party's request to file Protected Material 10 under seal is denied by the court, then the Receiving Party may file the information 11 in the public record unless otherwise instructed by the court. 12 13. FINAL DISPOSITION 13 14 After the final disposition of this Action, as defined in paragraph 4, within 60 15 days of a written request by the Designating Party, each Receiving Party must return 16 all Protected Material to the Producing Party or destroy such material. As used in 17 this subdivision, “all Protected Material” includes all copies, abstracts, compilations, 18 summaries, and any other format reproducing or capturing any of the Protected 19 Material. Whether the Protected Material is returned or destroyed, the Receiving 20 Party must submit a written certification to the Producing Party (and, if not the same 21 person or entity, to the Designating Party) by the 60 day deadline that (1) identifies 22 (by category, where appropriate) all the Protected Material that was returned or 23 destroyed and (2)affirms that the Receiving Party has not retained any copies, 24 abstracts, compilations, summaries or any other format reproducing or capturing any 25 of the Protected Material. Notwithstanding this provision, Counsel is entitled to 26 retain an archival copy of all pleadings, motion papers, trial, deposition, and hearing 27 transcripts, legal memoranda, correspondence, deposition and trial exhibits, expert 28 reports, attorney work product, and consultant and expert work product, even if such 14 _____________________________________________________________________________ 1 materials contain Protected Material. Any such archival copies that contain or 2 constitute Protected Material remain subject to this Protective Order as set forth in 3 Section 4 (DURATION). 4 5 14. 6 measures including, without limitation, contempt proceedings and/or monetary 7 sanctions. 8 9 Any violation of this Order may be punished by any and all appropriate IT IS SO STIPULATED, THROUGH COUNSEL OF RECORD. 10 IVIE McNEILL WYATT PURCELL & DIGGS 11 Dated: May 4, 2022 By: /s/ Rodney S.
