PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS 23 The subpoena served by plaintiff Jose Linares (“Plaintiff”) on Cardinal 24 Health 100, Inc. (“Cardinal Health”), dated January 26, 2017 (the “Subpoena”) 25 seeks the inspection of a Cardinal Health premises that houses confidential, 26 proprietary, and private information for which special protection from public 27 disclosure and from use for any purpose other than prosecuting this litigation may 28 be warranted (the “Premises.”) Access to the Premises is strictly controlled due to (PROPOSED) ST IPULAT ED PROT ECT IVE ORDER FOR INSPECT ION OF CARDINAL HEALT H 100, INC.’S PREMISES various regulations related to the products stored at the Premises. Additionally, the 2 Premises is a highly active distribution center which requires the operation of 3 heavy machinery and other potentially dangerous equipment. 4 Cardinal Health, Plaintiff, and Crown Equipment Corporation (“Crown” and, 5 collectively with Cardinal Health and Plaintiff, the “Parties”) hereby stipulate to 6 and petition the Court to enter the following Stipulated Protective Order (the 7 “Order.”) 8 protections on all disclosures or responses to discovery and that the protection it 9 affords from public disclosure and use extends only to the limited information or 10 B AK E R & H O S T E T L E R L L P A T T O R N E Y S AT L AW CO S TA M ES A 1 items that are entitled to confidential treatment under the applicable legal 11 principles. The Parties further acknowledge, as set forth in Section 12.3, below, 12 that this Order does not entitle the Parties to file confidential information under 13 seal. Civil Local Rule 79-5 sets forth the procedures that must be followed and the 14 standards that will be applied when a party seeks permission from the Court to file 15 material under seal. Accordingly, The Parties acknowledge that this Order does not confer blanket 16 17 1.2. 18 The Subpoena seeks the inspection of a Cardinal Health Premises which 19 houses confidential, proprietary, and private information. Such confidential and 20 proprietary materials and information consist of, among other things, information 21 regarding confidential business practices, or other confidential commercial 22 information or employee records (including information implicating privacy rights 23 of third parties), information generally unavailable to the public, and/or which may 24 be privileged or otherwise protected from disclosure under state or federal statutes, 25 court rules, case decisions, or common law. Access to the Premises is strictly 26 controlled due to various regulations related to the products stored at the Premises. 27 Additionally, the Premises is a highly active distribution center which requires the 28 operation of heavy machinery and other potentially dangerous equipment. -2- GOOD CAUSE STATEMENT (PROPOSED) ST IPULAT ED PROT ECT IVE ORDER FOR INSPECT ION OF CARDINAL HEALT H 100, INC.’S PREMISES 610298768.1 Accordingly, to facilitate the opportunity for a safe inspection of the 2 Premises, to expedite the flow of information, to facilitate the prompt resolution of 3 disputes over confidentiality of discovery materials, to adequately protect 4 information the parties are entitled to keep confidential, to ensure that the parties 5 are permitted reasonable necessary uses of such material in preparation for and in 6 the conduct of trial, to address their handling at the end of the litigation, and serve 7 the ends of justice, a protective order for such information is justified in this 8 matter. It is the intent of the parties that information will not be designated as 9 confidential for tactical reasons and that nothing be so designated without a 10 B AK E R & H O S T E T L E R L L P A T T O R N E Y S AT L AW CO S TA M ES A 1 good faith belief that it has been maintained in a confidential, non-public manner, 11 and there is good cause why it should not be part of the public record of this case. 12 13 14 2.

DESIGNATING PROTECTED MATERIAL 2 5.1. 3 Each Party or Non-Party that designates information or items for 4 protection under this Order must take care to limit any such designation to 5 specific material that qualifies under the appropriate standards. The Designating 6 Party must designate for protection only those parts of material, documents, items, 7 or oral or written communications that qualify so that other portions of the 8 material, documents, items, or communications for which protection is not 9 warranted are not swept unjustifiably within the ambit of this Order. B AK E R & H O S T E T L E R L L P A T T O R N E Y S AT L AW CO S TA M ES A 10 Mass, Exercise of Restraint and Care in Designating Material for Protection, indiscriminate, or routinized designations are prohibited. 11 Designations that are shown to be clearly unjustified or that have been made 12 for an improper purpose (e.g., to unnecessarily encumber the case development 13 process or to impose unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) may 14 expose the Designating Party to sanctions. 15 If it comes to a Designating Party’s attention that information or items that 16 it designated for protection do not qualify for protection, that Designating Party 17 must promptly notify all other Parties that it is withdrawing the inapplicable 18 designation. 19 5.2. Manner and Timing of Designations. Except as otherwise provided in 20 this Order (see, e.g., second paragraph of section 5.2(a) below), or as 21 otherwise stipulated or ordered, Disclosure or Discovery Material that qualifies for 22 protection under this Order must be clearly so designated before the material is 23 disclosed or produced. 24 Designation in conformity with this Order requires: 25 (a) For information in documentary form (e.g., paper or electronic 26 documents, including photographs, but excluding transcripts of depositions or 27 other pretrial or trial proceedings), that the Producing Party affix, at a minimum, 28 the legend “CONFIDENTIAL” (hereinafter, “CONFIDENTIAL Legend”), to each -6(PROPOSED) ST IPULAT ED PROT ECT IVE ORDER FOR INSPECT ION OF CARDINAL HEALT H 100, INC.’S PREMISES 610298768.1 page that contains protected material. If only a portion or portions of the material 2 on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify 3 the protected portion(s) (e.g., by making appropriate markings in the margins). 4 A Party or Non-Party that makes original documents available for inspection need 5 not designate them for protection until after the inspecting Party has indicated 6 which documents it would like copied and produced. During the inspection 7 and before the designation, all of the material made available for inspection 8 shall be deemed “CONFIDENTIAL.” After the inspecting Party has identified the 9 documents it wants copied and produced, the Producing Party must determine 10 B AK E R & H O S T E T L E R L L P A T T O R N E Y S AT L AW CO S TA M ES A 1 which documents, or portions thereof, qualify for protection under this Order. 11 Then, before producing the specified documents, the Producing Party must affix 12 the “CONFIDENTIAL Legend” to each page that contains Protected Material. If 13 only a portion or portions of the material on a page qualifies for protection, the 14 Producing Party also must clearly identify the protected portion(s) (e.g., by making 15 appropriate markings in the margins). 16 5.3. Inadvertent Failures to Designate. If timely corrected, an inadvertent 17 failure to designate qualified information or items does not, standing alone, 18 waive the Designating Party’s right to secure protection under this Order for such 19 material. Upon timely correction of a designation, the Receiving Party must make 20 reasonable efforts to assure that the material is treated in accordance with the 21 provisions of this Order. 22 23 24 6. CHALLENGING CONFIDENTIALITY DESIGNATIONS 6.1. Timing of Challenges. Any Party or Non-Party may challenge a 25 designation of confidentiality at any time that is consistent with the Court’s 26 Scheduling Order. 27 28 6.2. Meet and Confer. The Challenging party shall initiate the dispute resolution process under Local Rule 37.1 et seq. -7(PROPOSED) ST IPULAT ED PROT ECT IVE ORDER FOR INSPECT ION OF CARDINAL HEALT H 100, INC.’S PREMISES 610298768.1 1 6.3. The burden of persuasion in any such challenge proceeding shall be 2 on the Designating Party. Frivolous challenges, and those made for an improper 3 purpose (e.g., to harass or impose unnecessary expenses and burdens on other 4 parties) 5 Designating Party has waived or withdrawn the confidentiality designation, all 6 parties shall continue to afford the material in question the level of protection 7 to which it is entitled under the Producing Party’s designation until the Court 8 rules on the challenge. may expose the Challenging Party to sanctions.
