Mendez; referred to Magistrate Judge Kendall J. Newman STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER Complaint Filed: May 25, 2017 Trial: TBD 27 28 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 17-CV-01094-JAM-KJN 1 1. PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS 2 Disclosure and discovery activity in this action are likely to involve production 3 of confidential, proprietary, or private information for which special protection from 4 public disclosure and from use for any purpose other than prosecuting this litigation 5 may be warranted. Accordingly, plaintiff Marcella Johnson and Defendant Bluestem 6 Brands, Inc. (collectively, the “Parties”) hereby stipulate to and petition the court to 7 enter the following Stipulated Protective Order. The Parties acknowledge that this 8 Order does not confer blanket protections on all disclosures or responses to discovery 9 and that the protection it affords from public disclosure and use extends only to the 10 limited information or items that are entitled to confidential treatment under the 11 applicable legal principles. The Parties further acknowledge, as set forth in Section D OLL A MIR & E LEY LLP 12 12.3, below, that this Stipulated Protective Order does not entitle them to file 13 confidential information under seal; Civil Local Rule 141 sets forth the procedures 14 that must be followed and the standards that will be applied when a party seeks 15 permission from the court to file material under seal. 16 2. DEFINITIONS 17 2.1 Challenging Party: a Party or Non-Party that challenges the designation 18 of information or items under this Order. 19 2.2 “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items: information (regardless of 20 how it is generated, stored or maintained) or tangible things that qualify for protection 21 under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(c). 22 2.3 Counsel (without qualifier): Outside Counsel of Record and House 23 Counsel (as well as their support staff). 24 2.4 Designating Party: a Party or Non-Party that designates information or 25 items that it produces in disclosures or in responses to discovery as 26 “CONFIDENTIAL.” 27 2.5 Disclosure or Discovery Material: all items or information, regardless of 28 the medium or manner in which it is generated, stored, or maintained (including, 1 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 17-CV-01094-JAM-KJN 1 among other things, testimony, transcripts, and tangible things) that are produced or 2 generated in disclosures or responses to discovery in this matter. 3 2.6 Expert: a person with specialized knowledge or experience in a matter 4 pertinent to the litigation who has been retained by a Party or its counsel to serve as an 5 expert witness or as a consultant in this action. 6 2.7 House Counsel: attorneys who are employees of a party to this action. 7 House Counsel does not include Outside Counsel of Record or any other outside 8 counsel. 9 2.8 Non-Party: any natural person, partnership, corporation, association, or 10 other legal entity not named as a Party to this action. 11 2.9 Outside Counsel of Record: attorneys who are not employees of a party D OLL A MIR & E LEY LLP 12 to this action but are retained to represent or advise a party to this action and have 13 appeared in this action on behalf of that party or are affiliated with a law firm which 14 has appeared on behalf of that party. 15 2.10 Party: any party to this action, including all of its officers, directors, 16 employees, consultants, retained experts, and Outside Counsel of Record (and their 17 support staffs). 18 2.11 Producing Party: a Party or Non-Party that produces Disclosure or 19 Discovery Material in this action. 20 2.12 Professional Vendors: persons or entities that provide litigation support 21 services (e.g., photocopying, videotaping, translating, preparing exhibits or 22 demonstrations, and organizing, storing, or retrieving data in any form or medium) 23 and their employees and subcontractors. 24 2.13 Protected Material: any Disclosure or Discovery Material that is 25 designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” 26 2.14 Receiving Party: a Party that receives Disclosure or Discovery Material 27 from a Producing Party. 28 /// 2 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 17-CV-01094-JAM-KJN 1 3. SCOPE 2 The protections conferred by this Stipulation and Order cover not only 3 Protected Material (as defined above), but also (1) any information copied or extracted 4 from Protected Material; (2) all copies, excerpts, summaries, or compilations of 5 Protected Material; and (3) any testimony, conversations, or presentations by Parties 6 or their Counsel that might reveal Protected Material. However, the protections 7 conferred by this Stipulation and Order do not cover the following information: (a) 8 any information that is in the public domain at the time of disclosure to a Receiving 9 Party or becomes part of the public domain after its disclosure to a Receiving Party as 10 a result of publication not involving a violation of this Order, including becoming part 11 of the public record through trial or otherwise; and (b) any information known to the D OLL A MIR & E LEY LLP 12 Receiving Party prior to the disclosure or obtained by the Receiving Party after the 13 disclosure from a source who obtained the information lawfully and under no 14 obligation of confidentiality to the Designating Party. Any use of Protected Material 15 at trial shall be governed by a separate agreement or order. 16 4. DURATION 17 Even after final disposition of this litigation, the confidentiality obligations 18 imposed by this Order shall remain in effect until a Designating Party agrees 19 otherwise in writing or a court order otherwise directs. Final disposition shall be 20 deemed to be the later of (1) dismissal of all claims and defenses in this action, with or 21 without prejudice; and (2) final judgment herein after the completion and exhaustion 22 of all appeals, rehearings, remands, trials, or reviews of this action, including the time 23 limits for filing any motions or applications for extension of time pursuant to 24 applicable law. 25 5. DESIGNATING PROTECTED MATERIAL 26 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 this 28 Order must take care to limit any such designation to specific material that qualifies 3 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 17-CV-01094-JAM-KJN 1 under the appropriate standards. The Designating Party must designate for protection 2 only those parts of material, documents, items, or oral or written communications that 3 qualify – so that other portions of the material, documents, items, or communications 4 for which protection is not warranted are not swept unjustifiably within the ambit of 5 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 or retard the case development process or to 9 impose unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) expose the Designating 10 Party to sanctions. 11 If it comes to a Designating Party’s attention that information or items that it D OLL A MIR & E LEY LLP 12 designated for protection do not qualify for protection, that Designating Party must 13 promptly notify all other Parties that it is withdrawing the mistaken 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 20 Designation in conformity with this Order requires: (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 the legend “CONFIDENTIAL” to 23 each page that contains protected material. If only a portion or portions of the 24 material on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also must 25 clearly identify the protected portion(s) (e.g., by making appropriate markings 26 in the margins). 27 A Party or Non-Party that makes original documents or materials 28 available for inspection need not designate them for protection until after the 4 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 17-CV-01094-JAM-KJN 1 inspecting Party has indicated which material it would like copied and 2 produced. During the inspection and before the designation, all of the material 3 made available for inspection shall be deemed “CONFIDENTIAL.” After the 4 inspecting Party has identified the documents it wants copied and produced, the 5 Producing Party must determine which documents, or portions thereof, qualify 6 for protection under this Order. Then, before producing the specified 7 documents, the Producing Party must affix the “CONFIDENTIAL” legend to 8 each page that contains Protected Material. If only a portion or portions of the 9 material on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also must 10 clearly identify the protected portion(s) (e.g., by making appropriate markings 11 in the margins). D OLL A MIR & E LEY LLP 12 (b) for testimony given in deposition or in other pretrial or trial 13 proceedings, that the Designating Party identify on the record, before the close 14 of the deposition, hearing, or other proceeding, all protected testimony. 15 (c) for information produced in some form other than documentary and 16 for any other tangible items, that the Producing Party affix in a prominent place 17 on the exterior of the container or containers in which the information or item is 18 stored the legend “CONFIDENTIAL.” If only a portion or portions of the 19 information or item warrant protection, the Producing Party, to the extent 20 practicable, shall identify the protected portion(s). 21 5.3 Inadvertent Failures to Designate. If timely corrected, an inadvertent 22 failure to designate qualified information or items does not, standing alone, waive the 23 Designating Party’s right to secure protection under this Order for such material. 24 Upon timely correction of a designation, the Receiving Party must make reasonable 25 efforts to assure that the material is treated in accordance with the provisions of this 26 Order. 27 6. CHALLENGING CONFIDENTIALITY DESIGNATIONS 28 6.1 Timing of Challenges. Any Party or Non-Party may challenge a 5 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 17-CV-01094-JAM-KJN 1 designation of confidentiality at any time. Unless a prompt challenge to a Designating 2 Party’s confidentiality designation is necessary to avoid foreseeable, substantial 3 unfairness, unnecessary economic burdens, or a significant disruption or delay of the 4 litigation, a Party does not waive its right to challenge a confidentiality designation by 5 electing not to mount a challenge promptly after the original designation is disclosed. 6 6.2 Meet and Confer. The Challenging Party shall initiate the dispute 7 resolution process by providing written notice of each designation it is challenging 8 and describing the basis for each challenge. To avoid ambiguity as to whether a 9 challenge has been made, the written notice must recite that the challenge to 10 confidentiality is being made in accordance with this specific paragraph of the 11 Protective Order. The parties shall attempt to resolve each challenge in good faith and D OLL A MIR & E LEY LLP 12 must begin the process by conferring directly (in voice to voice dialogue; other forms 13 of communication are not sufficient) within 14 days of the date of service of notice. 14 In conferring, the Challenging Party must explain the basis for its belief that the 15 confidentiality designation was not proper and must give the Designating Party an 16 opportunity to review the designated material, to reconsider the circumstances, and, if 17 no change in designation is offered, to explain the basis for the chosen designation. A 18 Challenging Party may proceed to the next stage of the challenge process only if it has 19 engaged in this meet and confer process first or establishes that the Designating Party 20 is unwilling to participate in the meet and confer process in a timely manner. 21 6.3 Judicial Intervention. If the Parties cannot resolve a challenge without 22 court intervention, the Designating Party shall file and serve a motion to retain 23 confidentiality under Civil Local Rule 230 or 251 (and in compliance with Civil Local 24 Rule 141, if applicable) within 21 days of the initial notice of challenge or within 14 25 days of the parties agreeing that the meet and confer process will not resolve their 26 dispute, whichever is earlier. Each such motion must be accompanied by a competent 27 declaration affirming that the movant has complied with the meet and confer 28 requirements imposed in the preceding paragraph. Failure by the Designating Party to 6 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 17-CV-01094-JAM-KJN 1 make such a motion including the required declaration within 21 days (or 14 days, if 2 applicable) shall automatically waive the confidentiality designation for each 3 challenged designation. In addition, the Challenging Party may file a motion 4 challenging a confidentiality designation at any time if there is good cause for doing 5 so, including a challenge to the designation of a deposition transcript or any portions 6 thereof. Any motion brought pursuant to this provision must be accompanied by a 7 competent declaration affirming that the movant has complied with the meet and 8 confer requirements imposed by the preceding paragraph. The burden of persuasion 9 in any such challenge proceeding shall be on the Designating Party. Frivolous 10 challenges, and those made for an improper purpose (e.g., to harass or impose 11 unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) may expose the Challenging Party D OLL A MIR & E LEY LLP 12 to sanctions. Unless the Designating Party has waived the confidentiality designation 13 by failing to file a motion to retain confidentiality as described above, all parties shall 14 continue to afford the material in question the level of protection to which it is entitled 15 under the Producing Party’s designation until the court rules on the challenge. 16 7. ACCESS TO AND USE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 17 7.1 Basic Principles. A Receiving Party may use Protected Material that is 18 disclosed or produced by another Party or by a Non-Party in connection with this case 19 only for prosecuting, defending, or attempting to settle this litigation. Such Protected 20 Material may be disclosed only to the categories of persons and under the conditions 21 described in this Order. When the litigation has been terminated, a Receiving Party 22 must comply with the provisions of section 13 below (FINAL DISPOSITION). 23 Protected Material must be stored and maintained by a Receiving Party at a 24 location and in a secure manner that ensures that access is limited to the persons 25 authorized under this Order. 26 7.2 Disclosure of “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items. Unless 27 otherwise ordered by the court or permitted in writing by the Designating Party, a 28 Receiving Party may disclose any information or item designated “CONFIDENTIAL” 7 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 17-CV-01094-JAM-KJN 1 only to: (a) the Receiving Party’s Outside Counsel of Record in this action, as 2 3 well as employees of said Outside Counsel of Record to whom it is reasonably 4 necessary to disclose the information for this litigation and who have signed the 5 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” that is attached hereto as 6 Exhibit A; 7 (b) the officers, directors, and employees (including House Counsel) of 8 the Receiving Party to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this 9 litigation and who have signed the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); 10 (c) Experts (as defined in this Order) of the Receiving Party to whom 12 D OLL A MIR & E LEY LLP 11 disclosure is reasonably necessary for this litigation 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, professional jury or trial consultants, 16 mock jurors, and Professional Vendors to whom disclosure is reasonably 17 necessary for this litigation and who have signed the “Acknowledgment and 18 Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); 19 (f) during their depositions, witnesses in the action to whom disclosure is 20 reasonably necessary and who have signed the “Acknowledgment and 21 Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A), unless otherwise agreed by the 22 Designating Party or ordered by the court. Pages of transcribed deposition 23 testimony or exhibits to depositions that reveal Protected Material must be 24 separately bound by the court reporter and may not be disclosed to anyone 25 except as permitted under this Stipulated Protective Order. 26 (g) the author or recipient of a document containing the information or a 27 custodian or other person who otherwise possessed or knew the information. 28 /// 8 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 17-CV-01094-JAM-KJN 1 8. PROTECTED MATERIAL SUBPOENAED OR ORDERED PRODUCED 2 IN OTHER LITIGATION 3 If a Party is served with a subpoena or a court order issued in other litigation 4 that compels disclosure of any information or items designated in this action as 5 “CONFIDENTIAL,” that Party must: 6 (a) promptly notify in writing the Designating Party. Such notification 7 shall include a copy of the subpoena or court order; 8 (b) promptly notify in writing the party who caused the subpoena or 9 order to issue in the other litigation that some or all of the material covered by 10 the subpoena or order is subject to this Protective Order. Such notification shall 11 include a copy of this Stipulated Protective Order; and D OLL A MIR & E LEY LLP 12 (c) cooperate with respect to all reasonable procedures sought to be 13 pursued by the Designating Party whose Protected Material may be affected. 14 If the Designating Party timely seeks a protective order, the Party served with 15 the subpoena or court order shall not produce any information designated in this 16 action as “CONFIDENTIAL” before a determination by the court from which the 17 subpoena or order issued, unless the Party has obtained the Designating Party’s 18 permission. The Designating Party shall bear the burden and expense of seeking 19 protection in that court of its confidential material – and nothing in these provisions 20 should be construed as authorizing or encouraging a Receiving Party in this action to 21 disobey a lawful directive from another court. 22 9. A NON-PARTY’S PROTECTED MATERIAL SOUGHT TO BE 23 PRODUCED IN THIS LITIGATION 24 The terms of this Order are applicable to information produced by a Non-Party 25 in this action and designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” Such information produced by 26 Non-Parties in connection with this litigation is protected by the remedies and relief 27 provided by this Order. Nothing in these provisions should be construed as 28 prohibiting a Non-Party from seeking additional protections. 9 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 17-CV-01094-JAM-KJN 1 In the event that a Party is required, by a valid discovery request, to produce a 2 Non-Party’s confidential information in its possession, and the Party is subject to an 3 agreement with the Non-Party not to produce the Non-Party’s confidential 4 information, then the Party shall: 5 (1) promptly notify in writing the Requesting Party and the Non-Party 6 that some or all of the information requested is subject to a confidentiality 7 agreement with a Non-Party; 8 (2) promptly provide the Non-Party with a copy of the Stipulated 9 Protective Order in this litigation, the relevant discovery request(s), and a 10 reasonably specific description of the information requested; and 11 (3) make the information requested available for inspection by the Non- D OLL A MIR & E LEY LLP 12 Party. 13 If the Non-Party fails to object or seek a protective order from this court within 14 14 days of receiving the notice and accompanying information, the Receiving Party 15 may produce the Non-Party’s confidential information responsive to the discovery 16 request. If the Non-Party timely seeks a protective order, the Receiving Party shall 17 not produce any information in its possession or control that is subject to the 18 confidentiality agreement with the Non-Party before a determination by the court. 19 Absent a court order to the contrary, the Non-Party shall bear the burden and expense 20 of seeking protection in this court of its Protected Material. 21 10. UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 22 If a Receiving Party learns that, by inadvertence or otherwise, it has disclosed 23 Protected Material to any person or in any circumstance not authorized under this 24 Stipulated Protective Order, the Receiving Party must immediately (a) notify in 25 writing the Designating Party of the unauthorized disclosures, (b) use its best efforts 26 to retrieve all unauthorized copies of the Protected Material, (c) inform the person or 27 persons to whom unauthorized disclosures were made of all the terms of this Order, 28 10 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 17-CV-01094-JAM-KJN 1 and (d) request such person or persons to execute the “Acknowledgment and 2 Agreement to Be Bound” that is attached hereto as Exhibit A. 3 11. INADVERTENT PRODUCTION OF PRIVILEGED OR OTHERWISE 4 PROTECTED MATERIAL 5 When a Producing Party gives notice to Receiving Parties that certain 6 inadvertently produced material is subject to a claim of privilege or other protection, 7 the obligations of the Receiving Parties are those set forth in Federal Rule of Civil 8 Procedure 26(b)(5)(B). This provision is not intended to modify whatever procedure 9 may be established in an e-discovery order that provides for production without prior 10 privilege review. Pursuant to Federal Rule of Evidence 502(d) and (e), insofar as the 11 parties reach an agreement on the effect of disclosure of a communication or D OLL A MIR & E LEY LLP 12 information covered by the attorney-client privilege or work product protection, the 13 parties may incorporate their agreement in the stipulated protective order submitted to 14 the court. 15 12. MISCELLANEOUS 16 12.1 Right to Further Relief. Nothing in this Order abridges the right of any 17 person to seek its modification by the court in the future. 18 12.2 Right to Assert Other Objections. By stipulating to the entry of this 19 Protective Order no Party waives any right it otherwise would have to object to 20 disclosing or producing any information or item on any ground not addressed in this 21 Stipulated Protective Order. Similarly, no Party waives any right to object on any 22 ground to use in evidence of any of the material covered by this Protective Order. 23 12.3 Filing Protected Material. Without written permission from the 24 Designating Party or a court order secured after appropriate notice to all interested 25 persons, a Party may not file in the public record in this action any Protected Material. 26 A Party that seeks to file under seal any Protected Material must comply with Civil 27 Local Rule 141. Protected Material may only be filed under seal pursuant to a court 28 order authorizing the sealing of the specific Protected Material at issue. Pursuant to 11 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 17-CV-01094-JAM-KJN 1 Civil Local Rule 141, a sealing order will issue only upon a request establishing that 2 the Protected Material at issue is privileged, protectable as a trade secret, or otherwise 3 entitled to protection under the law. If a Receiving Party’s request to file Protected 4 Material under seal pursuant to Civil Local Rule 141 is denied by the court, then the 5 Receiving Party may file the information in the public record unless otherwise 6 instructed by the court. 7 13. FINAL DISPOSITION 8 Within 60 days after the final disposition of this action, as defined in paragraph 9 4, each Receiving Party must return all Protected Material to the Producing Party or 10 destroy such material. As used in this subdivision, “all Protected Material” includes 11 all copies, abstracts, compilations, summaries, and any other format reproducing or D OLL A MIR & E LEY LLP 12 capturing any of the Protected Material. Whether the Protected Material is returned or 13 destroyed, the Receiving Party must submit a written certification to the Producing 14 Party (and, if not the same person or entity, to the Designating Party) by the 60 day 15 deadline that (1) identifies (by category, where appropriate) all the Protected Material 16 that was returned or destroyed and (2) affirms that the Receiving Party has not 17 retained any copies, abstracts, compilations, summaries or any other format 18 reproducing or capturing any of the Protected Material. Notwithstanding this 19 provision, Counsel are entitled to retain an archival copy of all pleadings, motion 20 papers, trial, deposition, and hearing transcripts, legal memoranda, correspondence, 21 deposition and trial exhibits, expert reports, attorney work product, and consultant and 22 expert work product, even if such materials contain Protected Material. Any such 23 archival copies that contain or constitute Protected Material remain subject to this 24 Protective Order as set forth in Section 4 (DURATION). 25 /// 26 /// 27 /// 28 /// 12 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. 17-CV-01094-JAM-KJN 1 IT IS SO STIPULATED, THROUGH COUNSEL OF RECORD. 2 3 DATED: October 12, 2017 DOLL AMIR & ELEY LLP 4 By: /s/ Chelsea L.
