Title: Gabriela Ortolani v. Freedom Mortgage Corporation
Present: The Honorable KENLY KIYA KATO, UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
Attorney(s) Present for Plaintiff(s):
Attorney(s) Present for Defendant(s):
Order re: Stipulated Protective Order [Dkt. 26]
The parties’ proposed Stipulation and Protective Order has been referred by the District
Judge to the Magistrate Judge for consideration. The parties are advised that the Court declines
to issue the proposed protective order to which they have stipulated for the following reasons:
While the Court is willing to enter a protective order in accordance with the
parties’ stipulation in order to facilitate the conduct of discovery, the Court is unwilling to
include in the protective order any provisions relating to evidence presented at trial or other
court hearings or proceedings. Any use of Protected Material at trial or other court hearings
or proceedings shall be governed by the orders of the trial judge. The stipulation should, thus,
include language to make this explicit.
Proposed ¶¶ 7.2 and 7.3 need to be revised to make clear that any motion
challenging a party’s designation of material as Confidential Information, seeking to retain
confidentiality, or seeking to modify or amend the proposed Protective Order must be brought in
strict compliance with Local Rules 37-1 and 37-2 (including the Joint Stipulation requirement).
Proposed ¶ 13.3 needs to be revised to make clear a Party that seeks to file under
seal any Protected Material must comply with Civil Local Rule 79-5. Protected Material may
only be filed under seal pursuant to a court order authorizing the sealing of the specific Protected
Material at issue. If a Party’s request to file Protected Material under seal is denied by the court,

then the Receiving Party may file the information in the public record unless otherwise instructed
by the court.
The parties are further directed to the Court’s sample stipulated protective order
located on the Court’s website for a sample of the format of an approved stipulated
protective order. The parties are strongly encouraged to use the language contained in the
approved stipulated protective order.
