1 2 3 4 5 6 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 7 8 CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 9 10 11 12 13 K2 SPORTS, LLC dba RIDE SNOWBOARDS, an Indiana limited liability company, 14 Plaintiff, 15 16 17 Case No. 2:22-cv-02078-RGK-RAO STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER1 vs. RIDE THE SLOPES LLC, a California limited liability company; and KENJI BROOKS CHANDLER, an individual, 18 Defendants. 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 1 This Stipulated Protective Order is substantially based on the model protective order provided under Magistrate Judge Rozella A. Oliver’s Procedures. 1 2 1. A. PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS 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 stipulate to and petition the Court to 6 enter the following Stipulated Protective Order (this “Order”). The parties 7 acknowledge that this Order does not confer blanket protections on all disclosures or 8 responses to discovery and that the protection it affords from public disclosure and 9 use extends only to the limited information or items that are entitled to confidential 10 treatment under the applicable legal principles. The availability of protection 11 pursuant to this Order does not preclude a party from withholding information 12 protected by any applicable privilege. 13 14 B. GOOD CAUSE STATEMENT 15 This action is likely to involve disclosure of a Party or Non-Party’s (a) 16 financial or accounting information, including but not limited to revenue, cost of 17 goods sold, volume of sales, and profits; (b) commercially sensitive internal 18 communications, information, business practices or policies; (c) business 19 negotiations, transactions, and dealings with third parties; (d) information about 20 intellectual property and confidential competitive or strategic initiatives; (e) third- 21 party commercially sensitive and confidential information; and (f) 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 and Non-Parties are entitled 27 to keep confidential, to ensure that the parties are permitted reasonable necessary 28 uses of such material in preparation for and in the conduct of trial, to address their STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 2 1 handling at the end of the litigation, and serve the ends of justice, a protective order 2 for such information is justified in this matter. It is the intent of the parties that 3 information will not be designated as confidential for tactical reasons and that 4 nothing be so designated without a good faith belief that it has been maintained in a 5 confidential, non-public manner, and there is good cause why it should not be part 6 of the public record of this Action. 7 8 C. ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF PROCEDURE FOR FILING UNDER SEAL 9 The parties further acknowledge, as set forth in Section 12.3, below, that this 10 Order does not entitle them to file confidential information under seal; Local Civil 11 Rule 79-5 sets forth the procedures that must be followed and the standards that will 12 be applied when a party seeks permission from the court to file material under seal. 13 There is a strong presumption that the public has a right of access to judicial 14 proceedings and records in civil cases. In connection with non-dispositive motions, 15 good cause must be shown to support a filing under seal. See Kamakana v. City and 16 County of Honolulu, 447 F.3d 1172, 1176 (9th Cir. 2006); Phillips v. Gen. Motors 17 Corp., 307 F.3d 1206, 1210-11 (9th Cir. 2002); Makar-Welbon v. Sony Electrics, 18 Inc., 187 F.R.D. 576, 577 (E.D. Wis. 1999) (even stipulated protective orders 19 require good cause showing), and a specific showing of good cause or compelling 20 reasons with proper evidentiary support and legal justification, must be made with 21 respect to Protected Material that a party seeks to file under seal. The parties’ mere 22 designation of Disclosure or Discovery Material as CONFIDENTIAL does not— 23 without the submission of competent evidence by declaration, establishing that the 24 material sought to be filed under seal qualifies as confidential, privileged, or 25 otherwise protectable—constitute good cause. 26 Further, if a party requests sealing related to a dispositive motion or trial, then 27 compelling reasons, not only good cause, for the sealing must be shown, and the 28 relief sought shall be narrowly tailored to serve the specific interest to be protected. STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 3 1 See Pintos v. Pacific Creditors Ass’n, 605 F.3d 665, 677-79 (9th Cir. 2010). For 2 each item or type of information, document, or thing sought to be filed or introduced 3 under seal in connection with a dispositive motion or trial, the party seeking 4 protection must articulate compelling reasons, supported by specific facts and legal 5 justification, for the requested sealing order. Again, competent evidence supporting 6 the application to file documents under seal must be provided by declaration. 7 Parties must protect confidential information by redacting confidential 8 information that the Court does not need to consider in conjunction with the 9 applicable filing. Any document that is not confidential, privileged, or otherwise 10 protectable in its entirety will not be filed under seal if the confidential portions can 11 be redacted. If documents can be redacted, then a redacted version for public 12 viewing, omitting only the confidential, privileged, or otherwise protectable portions 13 of the document shall be filed. Any application that seeks to file documents under 14 seal in their entirety should include an explanation of why redaction is not feasible. 15 16 2. DEFINITIONS 17 2.1 Action: this pending federal lawsuit. 18 2.2 Challenging Party: a Party or Non-Party that challenges the 19 20 designation of information or items under this Order. 2.3 “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items: information (regardless of 21 how it is generated, stored or maintained) or tangible things that qualify for 22 protection under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(c), and as specified above in 23 the Good Cause Statement. 24 25 26 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 27 items that it produces in disclosures or in responses to discovery as 28 “CONFIDENTIAL.” STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 4 1 2.6 Disclosure or Discovery Material: all items or information, regardless 2 of the medium or manner in which it is generated, stored, or maintained (including, 3 among other things, testimony, transcripts, and tangible things) that are produced or 4 generated in disclosures or responses to discovery in this matter. 5 2.7 Expert: a person with specialized knowledge or experience in a matter 6 pertinent to the litigation who has been retained by a Party or its counsel to serve as 7 an expert witness or as a consultant in this Action. 8 9 10 11 12 13 2.8 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. 2.9 Non-Party: any natural person, partnership, corporation, association or other legal entity not named as a Party to this action. 2.10 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 that has appeared on behalf of that party, and includes support staff. 17 2.11 Party: any party to this Action, including all of its officers, directors, 18 employees, consultants, Experts, and Outside Counsel of Record (and their support 19 staffs). 20 21 2.12 Producing Party: a Party or Non-Party that produces Disclosure or Discovery Material in this Action. 22 2.13 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 2.14 Protected Material: any Disclosure or Discovery Material that is designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” 28 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 5 2.15 Receiving Party: a Party that receives Disclosure or Discovery 1 2 Material from a Producing Party. 3 4 3. SCOPE 5 The protections conferred by this Stipulation and Order cover not only 6 Protected Material (as defined above), but also (1) any information copied or 7 extracted from Protected Material; (2) all copies, excerpts, summaries, or 8 compilations of Protected Material; and (3) any testimony, conversations, or 9 presentations by Parties, their Counsel, or Non-Parties that might reveal Protected 10 Material. 11 12 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. 13 14 4. 15 DURATION Once a case proceeds to trial, information that was designated as 16 CONFIDENTIAL or maintained pursuant to this Order used or introduced as an 17 exhibit at trial becomes public and will be presumptively available to all members of 18 the public, including the press, unless compelling reasons supported by specific 19 factual findings to proceed otherwise are made to the trial judge in advance of the 20 trial. See Kamakana, 447 F.3d at 1180-81 (distinguishing “good cause” showing for 21 sealing documents produced in discovery from “compelling reasons” standard when 22 merits-related documents are part of court record). Accordingly, the terms of this 23 Order do not extend beyond the commencement of the trial. 24 25 26 5. DESIGNATING PROTECTED MATERIAL 5.1 Exercise of Restraint and Care in Designating Material for Protection. 27 Each Party or Non-Party that designates information or items for protection under 28 this Order must take care to limit any such designation to specific material that STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 6 1 qualifies under the appropriate standards. The Designating Party must designate for 2 protection only those parts of material, documents, items or oral or written 3 communications that qualify so that other portions of the material, documents, items 4 or communications for which protection is not warranted are not swept unjustifiably 5 within the ambit of this Order. 6 Mass, indiscriminate or routinized designations are prohibited. Designations 7 that are shown to be clearly unjustified or that have been made for an improper 8 purpose (e.g., to unnecessarily encumber the case development process or to impose 9 unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) may expose the Designating 10 Party to sanctions. 11 If it comes to a Designating Party’s attention that information or items that it 12 designated for protection do not qualify for protection, that Designating Party must 13 promptly notify all other Parties that it is withdrawing the inapplicable designation. 14 5.2 Manner and Timing of Designations. Except as otherwise provided in 15 this Order (see, e.g., second paragraph of section 5.2(a) below), or as otherwise 16 stipulated or ordered, Disclosure or Discovery Material that qualifies for protection 17 under this Order must be clearly so designated before the material is disclosed or 18 produced. 19 Designation in conformity with this Order requires: 20 (a) for information in documentary form (e.g., paper or electronic 21 documents, but excluding transcripts of depositions or other pretrial or trial 22 proceedings), that the Producing Party affix at a minimum, the legend 23 “CONFIDENTIAL” (hereinafter “CONFIDENTIAL legend”), to each page that 24 contains protected material. If only a portion of the material on a page qualifies for 25 protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the protected portion(s) 26 (e.g., by making appropriate markings on the page). With respect to documents 27 containing Protected Material produced in native format, the Designating Party shall 28 include the appropriate designation at the end of the filename for each document. STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 7 1 A Party or Non-Party that makes original documents available for inspection 2 need not designate them for protection until after the inspecting Party has indicated 3 which documents it would like copied and produced. During the inspection and 4 before the designation, all of the material made available for inspection shall be 5 deemed “CONFIDENTIAL.” After the inspecting Party has identified the 6 documents it wants copied and produced, the Producing Party must determine which 7 documents, or portions thereof, qualify for protection under this Order. Then, 8 before producing the specified documents, the Producing Party must affix the 9 “CONFIDENTIAL legend” to each page that contains Protected Material. If only a 10 portion of the material on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also 11 must clearly identify the protected portion(s) (e.g., by making appropriate markings 12 on the page). 13 (b) for testimony given in depositions or in other pretrial proceedings, the 14 Designating Party identifies the protected testimony on the record, during the 15 deposition, hearing, or other proceeding, without prejudice to their right to so 16 designate other testimony after reviewing the transcript. Any Party or Non-Party 17 may, within 30 days after receiving the transcript of the deposition or other pretrial 18 proceeding, designate portions of the transcript, or exhibits thereto, as confidential. 19 Transcripts containing Protected Material shall have an obvious legend on the title 20 page that the transcript contains Protected Material and the title page shall be 21 followed by a list of all pages (including line numbers as appropriate) that have been 22 designated as Protected Material and the level of protection being asserted by the 23 Designating Party. The Designating Party shall inform the court reporter of these 24 requirements. Any transcript that is prepared before the expiration of a 30-day 25 period for designation shall be treated during that period as if it had been designated 26 “CONFIDENTIAL” in its entirety, unless otherwise agreed. 27 28 If a Party or Non-Party desires to protect confidential information at trial, the issue should be addressed during the pre-trial conference. STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 8 (c) for information produced in some form other than documentary and 1 2 for any other tangible items, that the Producing Party affix in a prominent place on 3 the exterior of the container or containers in which the information is stored the 4 legend “CONFIDENTIAL.” If only a portion or portions of the information 5 warrants protection, the Producing Party, to the extent practicable, shall identify the 6 protected portion(s). 5.3 7 Inadvertent Failures to Designate. If timely corrected, an inadvertent 8 failure to designate qualified information or items does not, standing alone, waive 9 the Designating Party’s right to secure protection under this Order for such material. 10 Upon timely correction of a designation, the Receiving Party must make reasonable 11 efforts to assure that the material is treated in accordance with the provisions of this 12 Order. 13 14 15 6. 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 6.2 Meet and Confer. The Challenging Party shall initiate the dispute resolution process under Local Rule 37.1 et seq. 6.3 The burden of persuasion in any such challenge proceeding shall be on 21 the Designating Party. Frivolous challenges, and those made for an improper 22 purpose (e.g., to harass or impose unnecessary expenses and burdens on other 23 parties) may expose the Challenging Party to sanctions. Unless the Designating 24 Party has waived or withdrawn the confidentiality designation, all parties shall 25 continue to afford the material in question the level of protection to which it is 26 entitled under the Producing Party’s designation until the Court rules on the 27 challenge. 28 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 9 1 2 7. ACCESS TO AND USE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 7.1 Basic Principles. A Receiving Party may use Protected Material that is 3 disclosed or produced by another Party or by a Non-Party in connection with this 4 Action only for prosecuting, defending or attempting to settle this Action. Such 5 Protected Material may be disclosed only to the categories of persons and under the 6 conditions described in this Order. When the Action has been terminated, a 7 Receiving Party must comply with the provisions of section 13 below (FINAL 8 DISPOSITION). 9 Protected Material must be stored and maintained by a Receiving Party at a 10 location and in a secure manner that ensures that access is limited to the persons 11 authorized under this Order. 12 7.2 Disclosure of “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items. Unless 13 otherwise ordered by the court or permitted in writing by the Designating Party, a 14 Receiving Party may disclose any information or item designated 15 “CONFIDENTIAL” only to: 16 (a) the Receiving Party’s Outside Counsel of Record in this Action, as 17 well as employees of said Outside Counsel of Record to whom it is reasonably 18 necessary to disclose the information for this Action; 19 (b) the officers, directors, and employees (including House Counsel) of 20 the Receiving Party to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action; 21 (c) Experts (as defined in this Order) of the Receiving Party to whom 22 disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action and who have signed the 23 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); 24 (d) the court and its personnel; 25 (e) court reporters and their staff; 26 (f) professional jury or trial consultants, mock jurors, and Professional 27 Vendors to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this Action and who have 28 signed the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 10 (g) the author or recipient of a document containing the information or a 1 2 custodian or other person who otherwise possessed or knew the information; 3 (h) during their depositions, witnesses, and attorneys for witnesses, in the 4 Action to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary provided: (1) the deposing party 5 requests that the witness sign the form attached as Exhibit A hereto; and (2) they 6 will not be permitted to keep any confidential information unless they sign the 7 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A), unless otherwise 8 agreed by the Designating Party or ordered by the court. Pages of transcribed 9 deposition testimony or exhibits to depositions that reveal Protected Material may 10 be separately bound by the court reporter and may not be disclosed to anyone except 11 as permitted under this Order; and (i) any mediator or settlement officer, and their supporting personnel, 12 13 mutually agreed upon by any of the parties engaged in settlement discussions. 14 15 8. PROTECTED MATERIAL SUBPOENAED OR ORDERED PRODUCED 16 IN OTHER LITIGATION 17 If a Party is served with a subpoena or a court order issued in other litigation 18 that compels disclosure of any information or items designated in this Action as 19 “CONFIDENTIAL,” that Party must: 20 21 22 (a) promptly notify in writing the Designating Party. Such notification shall include a copy of the subpoena or court order; (b) promptly notify in writing the party who caused the subpoena or order 23 to issue in the other litigation that some or all of the material covered by the 24 subpoena or order is subject to this Order. Such notification shall include a copy of 25 this Order; and 26 27 (c) cooperate with respect to all reasonable procedures sought to be pursued by the Designating Party whose Protected Material may be affected. 28 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 11 If the Designating Party timely seeks a protective order, the Party served with 1 2 the subpoena or court order shall not produce any information designated in this 3 action as “CONFIDENTIAL” before a determination by the court from which the 4 subpoena or order issued, unless the Party has obtained the Designating Party’s 5 permission. The Designating Party shall bear the burden and expense of seeking 6 protection in that court of its confidential material and nothing in these provisions 7 should be construed as authorizing or encouraging a Receiving Party in this Action 8 to disobey a lawful directive from another court. 9 10 11 12 9. A NON-PARTY’S PROTECTED MATERIAL SOUGHT TO BE PRODUCED IN THIS LITIGATION (a) The terms of this Order are applicable to information produced by a 13 Non-Party in this Action and designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” Such information 14 produced by Non-Parties in connection with this litigation is protected by the 15 remedies and relief provided by this Order. Nothing in these provisions should be 16 construed as prohibiting a Non-Party from seeking additional protections. 17 (b) In the event that a Party is required, by a valid discovery request, to 18 produce a Non-Party’s confidential information in its possession, and the Party is 19 subject to an agreement with the Non-Party not to produce the Non-Party’s 20 confidential information, then the Party shall: 21 (1) promptly notify in writing the Requesting Party and the Non-Party 22 that some or all of the information requested is subject to a confidentiality 23 agreement with a Non-Party; 24 (2) promptly provide the Non-Party with a copy of this Order in this 25 Action, the relevant discovery request(s), and a reasonably specific description of 26 the information requested; and 27 28 (3) make the information requested available for inspection by the Non-Party, if requested. STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 12 1 (c) If the Non-Party fails to seek a protective order from this court within 2 14 days of receiving the notice and accompanying information, the Receiving Party 3 may produce the Non-Party’s confidential information responsive to the discovery 4 request. If the Non-Party timely seeks a protective order, the Receiving Party shall 5 not produce any information in its possession or control that is subject to the 6 confidentiality agreement with the Non-Party before a determination by the court. 7 Absent a court order to the contrary, the Non-Party shall bear the burden and 8 expense of seeking protection in this court of its Protected Material. 9 10 10. 11 UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL If a Receiving Party learns that, by inadvertence or otherwise, it has disclosed 12 Protected Material to any person or in any circumstance not authorized under this 13 Order, the Receiving Party must immediately (a) notify in writing the Designating 14 Party of the unauthorized disclosures, (b) use its best efforts to retrieve all 15 unauthorized copies of the Protected Material, (c) inform the person or persons to 16 whom unauthorized disclosures were made of all the terms of this Order, and (d) 17 request such person or persons to execute the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to 18 Be Bound” that is attached hereto as Exhibit A. 19 20 11. INADVERTENT PRODUCTION OF PRIVILEGED OR OTHERWISE 21 PROTECTED MATERIAL 22 When a Producing Party gives notice to Receiving Parties that certain 23 inadvertently produced material is subject to a claim of privilege or other protection, 24 the obligations of the Receiving Parties are those set forth in Federal Rule of Civil 25 Procedure 26(b)(5)(B). This provision is not intended to modify whatever 26 procedure may be established in an e-discovery order that provides for production 27 without prior privilege review. This Order invokes the protections afforded by Fed. 28 R. Evid. 502(d). As provided under Fed. R. Evid. 502(d), the disclosure of STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 13 1 privileged material in connection with this Action will be deemed unintentional and 2 inadvertent. Thus, any Disclosure or Discovery Material provided in this proceeding 3 shall not, for the purposes of this Action or any other federal or state proceeding, 4 constitute a waiver by the Producing Party of any privilege applicable to that 5 Disclosure or Discovery Material, including the attorney-client privilege, attorney 6 work-product protection, or any other privilege or protection recognized by law. 7 8 12. 9 10 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. 11 12.2 Right to Assert Other Objections. By stipulating to the entry of this 12 Order, no Party waives any right it otherwise would have to object to disclosing or 13 producing any information or item on any ground not addressed in this Order. 14 Similarly, no Party waives any right to object on any ground to use in evidence of 15 any of the material covered by this Order. 16 12.3 Filing Protected Material. A Party that seeks to file under seal any 17 Protected Material must comply with Local Civil Rule 79-5. Protected Material 18 may only be filed under seal pursuant to a court order authorizing the sealing of the 19 specific Protected Material at issue. If a Party’s request to file Protected Material 20 under seal is denied by the court, then the Receiving Party may file the information 21 in the public record unless otherwise instructed by the court. 22 23 24 13. FINAL DISPOSITION After the final disposition of this Action, as defined in paragraph 4, within 60 25 days of a written request by the Designating Party, each Receiving Party must return 26 all Protected Material to the Producing Party or destroy such material. As used in 27 this subdivision, “all Protected Material” includes all copies, abstracts, compilations, 28 summaries, and any other format reproducing or capturing any of the Protected STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 14 1 Material. Whether the Protected Material is returned or destroyed, the Receiving 2 Party must submit a written certification to the Producing Party (and, if not the same 3 person or entity, to the Designating Party) by the 60 day deadline that (1) identifies 4 (by category, where appropriate) all the Protected Material that was returned or 5 destroyed and (2) affirms that the Receiving Party has not retained any copies, 6 abstracts, compilations, summaries or any other format reproducing or capturing any 7 of the Protected Material. Notwithstanding this provision, Counsel are entitled to 8 retain an archival copy of all pleadings, motion papers, trial, deposition, and hearing 9 transcripts, legal memoranda, correspondence, deposition and trial exhibits, expert 10 reports, attorney work product, and consultant and expert work product, even if such 11 materials contain Protected Material. Any such archival copies that contain or 12 constitute Protected Material remain subject to this Order as set forth in Section 4 13 (DURATION). 14 // 15 // 16 // 17 // 18 // 19 // 20 // 21 // 22 // 23 // 24 // 25 // 26 // 27 // 28 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 15 1 14.
