McDermott 26 27 28 [PROPOSED] PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 CASE NO. 2:20-cv-10434-GW-JEM 1 Defendant Twitter, Inc. (“Twitter”) hereby requests that this Court enter the 2 following Protective Order (“Order”) governing the production and use of 3 confidential information, which is based substantially on the Central District of 4 California’s form protective order: 5 1. A. PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS 6 Discovery in this action is likely to involve production of confidential, 7 proprietary or private information for which special protection from public disclosure 8 and from use for any purpose other than prosecuting this litigation may be warranted. 9 This Order does not confer blanket protections on all disclosures or responses to 10 discovery and that the protection it affords from public disclosure and use extends 11 only to the limited information or items that are entitled to confidential treatment 12 under the applicable legal principles. 13 B. GOOD CAUSE STATEMENT 14 This action is likely to involve confidential user data and information, as well 15 as valuable financial and/or proprietary information for which special protection 16 from public disclosure and from use for any purpose other than prosecution of this 17 action is warranted. Such confidential and proprietary materials and information 18 consist of, among other things, confidential business or financial information, 19 information regarding confidential business practices, information regarding 20 confidential user data, or other confidential commercial information (including 21 information implicating the privacy rights of third parties), information otherwise 22 generally unavailable to the public, or which may be privileged other otherwise 23 protected from disclosure under state or federal statutes, court rules, case decisions, 24 or common law. Accordingly, to expedite the flow of information, to facilitate the 25 prompt resolution of disputes of confidentiality of discovery materials, to adequately 26 protect information the Parties are entitled to keep confidential, to ensure that the 27 Parties are permitted reasonable necessary uses of such material in preparation for 28 and in the conduct of trial, to address their handling at the end of the litigation, and [PROPOSED] PROTECTIVE ORDER 1 CASE NO. 2:20-cv-10434-GW-JEM 1 serve the ends of justice, a protective order for such information is justified in this 2 matter. Information will not be designated as confidential for tactical reasons and that 3 nothing be so designated without a good faith belief that it has been maintained in a 4 confidential, non-public manner, and there is good cause why it should not be part of 5 the public record in this case. 6 C. ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF PROCEDURE FOR FILING UNDER SEAL 7 As set forth in Section 12.3, below, this Protective Order does not entitle them 8 to file confidential information under seal; Local Civil Rule 79-5 sets forth the 9 procedures that must be followed and the standards that will be applied when a party 10 seeks permission from the court to file material under seal. There is a strong 11 presumption that the public has a right of access to judicial proceedings and records 12 in civil cases. In connection with non-dispositive motions, good cause must be shown 13 to support a filing under seal. See Kamakana v. City and County of Honolulu, 447 14 F.3d 1172, 1176 (9th Cir. 2006), Phillips v. Gen. Motors Corp., 307 F.3d 1206, 1210- 15 11 (9th Cir. 2002), Makar-Welbon v. Sony Electrics, Inc., 187 F.R.D. 576, 577 (E.D. 16 Wis. 1999) (even stipulated protective orders require good cause showing), and a 17 specific showing of good cause or compelling reasons with proper evidentiary 18 support and legal justification, must be made with respect to Protected Material that 19 a party seeks to file under seal. The parties’ mere designation of Disclosure or 20 Discovery Material as CONFIDENTIAL does not—without the submission of 21 competent evidence by declaration, establishing that the material sought to be filed 22 under seal qualifies as confidential, privileged, or otherwise protectable—constitute 23 good cause. Further, if a party requests sealing related to a dispositive motion or trial, 24 then compelling reasons, not only good cause, for the sealing must be shown, and the 25 relief sought shall be narrowly tailored to serve the specific interest to be protected. 26 See Pintos v. Pacific Creditors Ass’n., 605 F.3d 665, 677-79 (9th Cir. 2010). For each 27 item or type of information, document, or thing sought to be filed or introduced under 28 seal in connection with a dispositive motion or trial, the party seeking protection must [PROPOSED] PROTECTIVE ORDER 2 CASE NO. 2:20-cv-10434-GW-JEM 1 articulate compelling reasons, supported by specific facts and legal justification, for 2 the requested sealing order. Again, competent evidence supporting the application to 3 file documents under seal must be provided by declaration. Any document that is not 4 confidential, privileged, or otherwise protectable in its entirety will not be filed under 5 seal if the confidential portions can be redacted. If documents can be redacted, then 6 a redacted version for public viewing, omitting only the confidential, privileged, or 7 otherwise protectable portions of the document, shall be filed. Any application that 8 seeks to file documents under seal in their entirety should include an explanation of 9 why redaction is not feasible. 10 2. DEFINITIONS 11 2.1 Action: this pending federal lawsuit. 12 2.2 Challenging Party: a Party or Non-Party that challenges the designation 13 14 of information or items under this Order. 2.3 “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items: information (regardless of 15 how it is generated, stored or maintained) or tangible things that qualify for protection 16 under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(c), and as specified above in the Good 17 Cause Statement. 18 2.4 19 20 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 21 items that it produces in disclosures or in responses to discovery as 22 “CONFIDENTIAL.” 23 2.6 Disclosure or Discovery Material: all items or information, regardless 24 of the medium or manner generated, stored, or maintained (including, among other 25 things, testimony, transcripts, or tangible things) that are produced or generated in 26 disclosures or responses to discovery in this matter. 27 28 [PROPOSED] PROTECTIVE ORDER 3 CASE NO. 2:20-cv-10434-GW-JEM 1 2.7 Expert: a person with specialized knowledge or experience in a matter 2 pertinent to the litigation who has been retained by a Party or its Counsel to serve as 3 an expert witness or as a consultant in this Action. 4 2.8 House Counsel: attorneys who are employees of a Party to this Action. 5 House Counsel does not include any Outside Counsel of Record or any other outside 6 counsel. 7 8 2.9 Non-Party: any natural person, partnership, corporation, associations, or other legal entity not named as a Party to this action. 9 2.10 Outside Counsel of Record: attorneys who are not employees of a party 10 to this Action but are retained to represent or advise a party to this Action and have 11 appeared in this Action on behalf of that party or are affiliated with a law firm that 12 has appeared on behalf of that party, and includes support staff. 13 2.11 Party: any party to this Action, including all of its officers, directors, 14 employees, consultants, retained experts, and outside counsel of record (and their 15 support staff). 16 17 2.12 Producing Party: a Party or Non-Party that produces Disclosure or Discovery Material in this action. 18 2.13 Professional Vendors: persons or entities that provide litigation support 19 services (e.g., photocopying; videotaping; translating; preparing exhibits or 20 demonstrations; organizing, storing, retrieving data in any form or medium; etc.) and 21 their employees and subcontractors. 22 23 2.14 Protected Material: any Disclosure or Discovery Material that is designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” 24 2.15 Receiving Party: a Party that receives Disclosure or Discovery Material 25 from a Producing Party. 26 3. SCOPE 27 The protections conferred by this Protective Order cover not only Protected 28 Material (as defined above), but also (1) any information copied or extracted from [PROPOSED] PROTECTIVE ORDER 4 CASE NO. 2:20-cv-10434-GW-JEM 1 Protected Material; (2) all copies, excerpts, summaries, or compilations of Protected 2 Material; and (3) any testimony, conversations, or presentations by Parties or their 3 Counsel that might reveal Protected Material. 4 Any use of Protected Material at trial shall be governed by the orders of the 5 trial judge. This Order does not govern the use of Protected Material at trial. 6 4. DURATION 7 Once a case proceeds to trial, information that was designated as 8 CONFIDENTIAL or maintained pursuant to this protective order used or introduced 9 as an exhibit at trial becomes public and will be presumptively available to all 10 members of the public, including the press, unless compelling reasons supported by 11 specific factual findings to proceed otherwise are made to the trial judge in advance 12 of the trial. See Kamakana, 447 F.3d at 1180-81 (distinguishing “good cause” 13 showing for sealing documents produced in discovery from “compelling reasons” 14 standard when merits-related documents are part of court record). Accordingly, the 15 terms of this protective order do not extend beyond the commencement of the trial. 16 5. 17 DESIGNATING PROTECTED MATERIAL 5.1 Exercise of Restraint and Care in Designating Material for Protection: 18 Each Party or Non-Party that designates information or items for protection under 19 this Order must take care to limit any such designation to specific material that 20 qualifies under the appropriate standards. The Designating Party must designate for 21 protection only those parts of material, documents, items, or oral or written 22 communications that qualify – so that other portions of the material, documents, 23 items, or communications for which protection is not warranted are not swept 24 unjustifiably within the ambit of this Order. 25 Mass, indiscriminate, or routinized designations are prohibited. Designations 26 that are shown to be clearly unjustified or that have been made for an improper 27 purpose (e.g., to unnecessarily encumber or retard the case development process or 28 [PROPOSED] PROTECTIVE ORDER 5 CASE NO. 2:20-cv-10434-GW-JEM 1 to impose unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) expose the 2 Designating Party to sanctions. 3 If it comes to a Designating Party’s attention that information or items that it 4 designated for protection do not qualify for protection, that Designating Party must 5 promptly notify all other Parties that it is withdrawing the inapplicable designation. 6 5.2 Manner and Timing of Designations: Except as otherwise provided in 7 this Order (see, e.g., section 5.2(a) below), or as otherwise stipulated or ordered, 8 Disclosure or Discovery Material that qualifies for protection under this Order must 9 be clearly so designated before the material is disclosed or produced. 10 Designation in conformity with this Order requires: (a) for information in 11 documentary form (e.g., paper or electronic documents, but excluding transcripts of 12 depositions or other pretrial or trial proceedings), that the Producing Party affix at a 13 minimum, the legend “CONFIDENTIAL” (hereinafter “CONFIDENTIAL legend”), 14 to each page that contains protected material. If only a portion of the material on a 15 page qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the 16 protected portion(s) (e.g., by making appropriate markings in the margins). A Party 17 or Non-Party that makes original documents available for inspection need not 18 designate them for protection until after the inspecting Party has indicated which 19 documents it would like copied and produced. During the inspection and before the 20 designation, all of the material made available for inspection shall be deemed 21 “CONFIDENTIAL.” After the inspecting Party has identified the documents it wants 22 copied and produced, the Producing Party must determine which documents, or 23 portions thereof, qualify for protection under this Order. Then, before producing the 24 specified documents, the Producing Party must affix the “CONFIDENTIAL legend” 25 to each page that contains Protected Material. If only a portion of the material on a 26 page qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the 27 protected portion(s) (e.g., by making appropriate markings in the margins). (b) for 28 testimony given in depositions that the Designating Party identifies the Disclosure or [PROPOSED] PROTECTIVE ORDER 6 CASE NO. 2:20-cv-10434-GW-JEM 1 Discovery Material on the record, before the close of the deposition all protected 2 testimony. (c) for information produced in some form other than documentary and 3 for any other tangible items, that the Producing Party affix in a prominent place on 4 the exterior of the container or containers in which the information is stored the 5 legend “CONFIDENTIAL.” If only a portion or portions of the information warrants 6 protection, the Producing Party, to the extent practicable, shall identify the protected 7 portion(s). 8 5.3 Inadvertent Failure to Designate: If timely corrected, an inadvertent 9 failure to designate qualified information or items does not, standing alone, waive 10 the Designating Party’s right to secure protection under this Order for such material. 11 Upon timely correction of a designation, the Receiving Party must make reasonable 12 efforts to assure that the material is treated in accordance with the provisions of this 13 Order. 14 6. 15 CHALLENGING CONFIDENTIALITY DESIGNATIONS 6.1 Timing of Challenges: Any Party or Non-Party may challenge a 16 designation of confidentiality at any time that is consistent with the Court’s 17 Scheduling Order. 18 19 20 21 22 6.2 Meet and Confer: The Challenging Party shall initiate the dispute resolution process under Local Rule 37.1 et seq. 6.3 Joint Stipulation. Any challenge submitted to the Court shall be via a joint stipulation pursuant to Local Rule 37-2. 6.4 The burden of persuasion in any such challenge proceeding shall be on 23 the Designating Party. Frivolous challenges, and those made for an improper purpose 24 (e.g., to harass or impose unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) may 25 expose the Challenging Party to sanctions. Unless the Designating Party has waived 26 the confidentiality designation by failing to file a motion to retain confidentiality as 27 described above, all Parties shall continue to afford the material in question the level 28 [PROPOSED] PROTECTIVE ORDER 7 CASE NO. 2:20-cv-10434-GW-JEM 1 of protection to which it is entitled under the Producing Party’s designation until the 2 Court rules on the challenge. 3 7. 4 ACCESS TO AND USE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 7.1 Basic Principles: A Receiving Party may use Protected Material that is 5 disclosed or produced by another Party or by a Non-Party in connection with this 6 Action only for prosecuting, defending or attempting to settle this Action. Such 7 Protected Material may be disclosed only to the categories of persons and under the 8 conditions described in this Order. When the Action has been terminated, a Receiving 9 Party must comply with the provisions of section 13 below (FINAL DISPOSITION). 10 Protected Material must be stored and maintained by a Receiving Party at a location 11 and in a secure manner that ensures that access is limited to the persons authorized 12 under this Order. 13 7.2 Disclosure of “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items: Unless 14 otherwise ordered by the court or permitted in writing by the Designating Party, a 15 Receiving 16 “CONFIDENTIAL” only to: (a) the Receiving Party’s Outside Counsel of Record in 17 this Action, as well as employees of said Outside Counsel of Record to whom it is 18 reasonably necessary to disclose the information for this Action; (b) the officers, 19 directors, and employees (including House Counsel) of the Receiving Party to whom 20 disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action; (c) Experts (as defined in this 21 Order) of the Receiving Party to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this 22 Action and who have signed the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” 23 (Exhibit A); (d) the court and its personnel; (e) court reporters and their staff; (f) 24 professional jury or trial consultants, mock jurors, and Professional Vendors to whom 25 disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action and who have signed the 26 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); (g) the author or 27 recipient of a document containing the information or a custodian or other person 28 who otherwise possessed or knew the information; (h) during their depositions, Party may [PROPOSED] PROTECTIVE ORDER disclose any 8 information or item designated CASE NO. 2:20-cv-10434-GW-JEM 1 witnesses, and attorneys for witnesses, in the Action to whom disclosure is 2 reasonably necessary provided: (1) the deposing party requests that the witness sign 3 the form attached as Exhibit 1 hereto; and (2) they will not be permitted to keep any 4 confidential information unless they sign the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to 5 Be Bound” (Exhibit A), unless otherwise agreed by the Designating Party or ordered 6 by the court. Pages of transcribed deposition testimony or exhibits to depositions that 7 reveal Protected Material may be separately bound by the court reporter and may not 8 be disclosed to anyone except as permitted under this Protective Order; and (i) any 9 mediator or settlement officer, and their supporting personnel, mutually agreed upon 10 by any of the parties engaged in settlement discussions. 11 8. 12 IN OTHER LITIGATION PROTECTED MATERIAL SUBPOENAED OR ORDERED PRODUCED 13 If a Party is served with a subpoena or a court order issued in other litigation 14 that compels disclosure of any information or items designated in this Action as 15 “CONFIDENTIAL,” that Party must: 16 17 (a) promptly notify in writing the Designating Party. Such notification shall include a copy of the subpoena or court order; 18 (b) promptly notify in writing the party who caused the subpoena or order to 19 issue in the other litigation that some or all of the material covered by the subpoena 20 or order is subject to this Protective Order. Such notification shall include a copy of 21 this Protective Order; and 22 23 (c) cooperate with respect to all reasonable procedures sought to be pursued by the Designating Party whose Protected Material may be affected. 24 If the Designating Party timely seeks a protective order, the Party served with 25 the subpoena or court order shall not produce any information designated in this 26 action as “CONFIDENTIAL” before a determination by the court from which the 27 subpoena or order issued, unless the Party has obtained the Designating Party’s 28 permission. The Designating Party shall bear the burden and expense of seeking [PROPOSED] PROTECTIVE ORDER 9 CASE NO. 2:20-cv-10434-GW-JEM 1 protection in that court of its confidential material – and nothing in these provisions 2 should be construed as authorizing or encouraging a Receiving Party in this action to 3 disobey a lawful directive from another court. 4 5 9. A NON-PARTY’S PROTECTED MATERIAL SOUGHT TO BE PRODUCED IN THIS LITIGATION 6 (a) The terms of this Order are applicable to information produced by a Non- 7 Party in this action and designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” Such information 8 produced by Non-Parties in connection with this litigation is protected by the 9 remedies and relief provided by this Order. Nothing in these provisions should be 10 construed as prohibiting a Non-Party from seeking additional protections. 11 (b) In the event that a Party is required, by a valid discovery request, to 12 produce a Non-Party’s confidential information in its possession, and the Party is 13 subject to an agreement with the Non-Party not to produce the Non-Party’s 14 confidential information, then the Party shall: 15 (1) promptly notify in writing the Requesting Party and the Non-Party 16 that some or all of the information requested is subject to a confidentiality agreement 17 with a Non-Party; 18 (2) promptly provide the Non-Party with a copy of the Protective Order 19 in this litigation, the relevant discovery request(s), and a reasonably specific 20 description of the information requested; and 21 22 (3) make the information requested available for inspection by the NonParty. 23 (c) If the Non-Party fails to object or seek a protective order from this Court 24 within 14 days of receiving the notice and accompanying information, the Receiving 25 Party may produce the Non-Party’s confidential information responsive to the 26 discovery request. If the Non-Party timely seeks a protective order, the Receiving 27 Party shall not produce any information in its possession or control that is subject to 28 the confidentiality agreement with the Non-Party before a determination by the [PROPOSED] PROTECTIVE ORDER 10 CASE NO. 2:20-cv-10434-GW-JEM 1 Court. 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 10. UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 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 Protective Order, the Receiving Party must immediately: (a) notify in writing the 7 Designating Party of the unauthorized disclosures, (b) use its best efforts to retrieve 8 all unauthorized copies of the Protected Material, (c) inform the person or persons to 9 whom unauthorized disclosures were made of all the terms of this Order, and (d) 10 request such person or persons to execute the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to 11 Be Bound” by Protective Order that is attached hereto as Exhibit A. 12 11. 13 PROTECTED MATERIAL INADVERTENT PRODUCTION OF PRIVILEGED OR OTHERWISE 14 When a Producing Party gives notice to Receiving Parties that certain 15 inadvertently produced material is subject to a claim of privilege or other protection, 16 the obligations of the Receiving Parties are those set forth in Federal Rule of Civil 17 Procedure 26(b)(5)(B). This provision is not intended to modify whatever procedure 18 may be established in an e-discovery order that provides for production without prior 19 privilege review. Pursuant to Federal Rule of Evidence 502(d) and (e), insofar as the 20 parties reach an agreement on the effect of disclosure of a communication or 21 information covered by the attorney-client privilege or work product protection, the 22 parties may incorporate their agreement in the protective order submitted to the court. 23 12. 24 25 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. 26 12.2 Right to Assert Other Objections. By stipulating to the entry of this 27 Protective Order, no Party waives any right it otherwise would have to object to 28 disclosing or producing any information or item on any ground not addressed in this [PROPOSED] PROTECTIVE ORDER 11 CASE NO. 2:20-cv-10434-GW-JEM 1 Protective Order. Similarly, no Party waives any right to object on any ground to use 2 in evidence of any of the material covered by this Protective Order. 3 12.3 Filing Protected Material. A Party that seeks to file under seal any 4 Protected Material must comply with Local Civil Rule 79-5. Protected Material may 5 only be filed under seal pursuant to a court order authorizing the sealing of the 6 specific Protected Material at issue. If a Party’s request to file Protected Material 7 under seal is denied by the court, then the Receiving Party may file the information 8 in the public record unless otherwise instructed by the court. 9 13. FINAL DISPOSITION 10 After the final disposition of this Action, as defined in paragraph 4, within 60 11 days of a written request by the Designating Party, each Receiving Party must return 12 all Protected Material to the Producing Party or destroy such material. As used in this 13 subdivision, “all Protected Material” includes all copies, abstracts, compilations, 14 summaries, and any other format reproducing or capturing any of the Protected 15 Material. Whether the Protected Material is returned or destroyed, the Receiving 16 Party must submit a written certification to the Producing Party (and, if not the same 17 person or entity, to the Designating Party) by the 60 day deadline that (1) identifies 18 (by category, where appropriate) all the Protected Material that was returned or 19 destroyed and (2) affirms that the Receiving Party has not retained any copies, 20 abstracts, compilations, summaries or any other format reproducing or capturing any 21 of the Protected Material. Notwithstanding this provision, Counsel are entitled to 22 retain an archival copy of all pleadings, motion papers, trial, deposition, and hearing 23 transcripts, legal memoranda, correspondence, deposition and trial exhibits, expert 24 reports, attorney work product, and consultant and expert work product, even if such 25 materials contain Protected Material. Any such archival copies that contain or 26 constitute Protected Material remain subject to this Protective Order as set forth in 27 Section 4 (DURATION). 28 [PROPOSED] PROTECTIVE ORDER 12 CASE NO. 2:20-cv-10434-GW-JEM 1 2 3 14.
