UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 16 EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 MARISSA BURTON, an individual, Plaintiff, vs. WAL-MART ASSOCIATES, INC., a Delaware Corporation, and DOES 1 through 100, inclusive, Defendants. Case No. 2:22-cv-02243-TLN-KJN STIPULATION REGARDING PRODUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION AND ORDER Action Filed: Trial Date: November 15, 2022 None set 25 26 27 28 Case No. 2:22-cv-02243-TLN-KJN STIPULATION AND ORDER REGARDING PRODUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION 1 IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between Plaintiff MARISSA BURTON (“Plaintiff”) 2 and Defendant WAL-MART ASSOCIATES, INC., (“Defendant”) (collectively, “the parties”), 3 through their respective attorneys of record, that a Protective Order be entered by this Court as 4 follows: 5 1. This Stipulation and Protective Order shall apply to the production and exchange of 6 all document requests and documents, interrogatories and answers to interrogatories, depositions, 7 request for admissions and responses to requests for admissions, exhibits, pleadings, admission of 8 evidence at trial, and all other information exchanged and furnished in this action by the parties that 9 are confidential and/or proprietary. 10 2. The parties acknowledge that discovery will require disclosure of information that is 11 private, personal, privileged, confidential, proprietary, or nonpublic. As a result, the parties agree 12 that they will be required to enter this Stipulation and Protective Order (hereinafter “Order”) on the 13 following terms to ensure the continuing confidentiality of materials designated as Confidential 14 Material in this litigation. Confidential Material, as used in this Order, shall refer to any document 15 or item designated as “Confidential” or “Highly Confidential – Attorneys’ Eyes Only”. The parties 16 understand that this Order does not confer blanket protections on all disclosures or responses to 17 discovery and that the protection it affords extends only to the limited information or items that are 18 entitled under the applicable legal principles to treatment as confidential. Nothing in this Order shall 19 require any party to produce any specific document or category of documents which a party deems 20 inappropriate for production. 21 I. Definitions of Confidential Material 22 3. Confidential Material, as used in this Order, consists of the following materials and 23 categories of materials: 24 (a) Materials relating to any privileged, confidential, or nonpublic information, 25 including, but not limited to, trade secrets, research, design, development, financial, 26 technical, marketing, planning, personal, or commercial information, as such terms are used 27 in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and any applicable case law interpreting Federal Rule 28 of Civil Procedure 26(c)(1)(G), contracts, non-public compilations of retail prices; 1 Case No. 2:22-cv-02243-TLN-KJN STIPULATION AND REGARDING PRODUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION 1 proprietary information, vendor agreements; personnel files; claim/litigation information; 2 nonpublic policies and procedures; medical records; employment offers; competitive 3 analyses, income statements; client or customer information; financial records and 4 statements; vendor agreements, along with other proprietary or confidential information. 5 (b) Materials containing corporate trade secrets, nonpublic research and 6 development data, including, but not limited to, cost data, pricing formulas, inventory 7 management programs, and other sales or business information known to the public; 8 information obtained from a non-party pursuant to a non-disclosure agreement; and 9 customer-related Protected Data shall be deemed “Highly Confidential – Attorneys’ Eyes 10 Only”. 11 (c) “Protected Data” shall refer to any information that a party believes in good 12 faith to be subject to federal, state or foreign data protection laws or other privacy obligations. 13 Examples of such data protection laws include but are not limited to The Gramm-Leach- 14 Bliley Act, 15 U.S.C. § 6801 et seq. (financial information); and, The Health Insurance 15 Portability and Accountability Act and the regulations thereunder, 45 CFR Part 160 and 16 Subparts A and E of Part 164 (medical information). Certain Protected Data may compel 17 alternative or additional protections beyond those afforded “Highly Confidential – Attorneys’ 18 Eyes Only” material, in which event the parties shall meet and confer in good faith, and, if 19 unsuccessful, shall move the Court for appropriate relief. 20 4. The parties shall not designate as confidential information that is already public 21 knowledge. 22 5. The parties agree that such Confidential Material as described in paragraph 3 above, 23 should be given the protection of an order of this Court to prevent injury through disclosure to 24 persons other than those persons involved in the prosecution or defense of this litigation. A Protective 25 Order will serve to achieve the following: expedite the flow of information, facilitate the prompt 26 resolution of disputes over confidentiality of discovery materials, adequately protect information the 27 parties are entitled to keep confidential, ensure that the parties are permitted reasonable necessary 28 uses of such material in preparation for and in the conduct of trial, and address their handling at the 2 Case No. 2:22-cv-02243-TLN-KJN STIPULATION AND REGARDING PRODUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION 1 end of the litigation. 2 II. Procedure for Designating Information as Confidential 3 6. To designate information as confidential, the producing party shall mark Confidential 4 Material with the legend “CONFIDENTIAL” or “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – ATTORNEYS’ 5 EYES ONLY”. Parties shall submit confidential discovery responses, such as answers to 6 interrogatories or answers to requests for admissions, in a separate document stamped with the 7 appropriate legend designating those responses as Confidential Material. The Receiving Party may 8 make copies of Confidential Material and such copies shall become subject to the same protections 9 as the Confidential Material from which those copies were made. 10 (a) Information on a disk or other electronic format (e.g., a native format production) 11 may be designated confidential by marking the storage medium itself (or the native file’s title) with 12 the legend “CONFIDENTIAL” or “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – ATTORNEYS’ EYES ONLY”. 13 The Receiving Party shall mark any hard-copy printouts and the storage medium of any permissible 14 copies of such electronic material with the corresponding legend contained on the original and such 15 copies shall become subject to the same protections, as the Confidential Material from which those 16 copies were made. 17 (b) Information disclosed at any deposition of a party taken in this action may be 18 designated by the party as confidential by indicating on the record at the deposition that the 19 information is confidential and subject to the provisions of this Order. Alternatively, the party may 20 designate information disclosed at the deposition as confidential by notifying the court reporter and 21 other parties in writing, within fifteen (15) business days of receipt of the transcript, of the specific 22 pages and lines of the transcript which are designated as confidential. The parties may agree to a 23 reasonable extension of the 15-business-day period for designation. Designations of transcripts will 24 apply to audio, video, or other recordings of the testimony. During such 15-business-day period, the 25 entire transcript shall receive confidential treatment. Upon such designation, the court reporter and 26 each party shall affix the “CONFIDENTIAL” or “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – ATTORNEYS’ 27 EYES ONLY” legend to the designated pages and segregate them as appropriate. 28 7. A producing party may change the confidentiality designation of materials it has 3 Case No. 2:22-cv-02243-TLN-KJN STIPULATION AND REGARDING PRODUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION 1 produced, as follows: (1) The producing party must give the receiving parties notice of the change 2 by identifying the documents or information at issue. Once notice is given, the receiving party must 3 make good-faith efforts to ensure that the documents or information are accorded treatment under 4 the new designation. (2) Within a reasonable period after giving notice, the producing party must 5 reproduce the documents or information in a format that contains the new designation. (3) If such 6 information has been disclosed to persons not qualified pursuant to paragraph(s) (14-15) below, the 7 party who disclosed such information shall (a) take reasonable efforts to retrieve previously disclosed 8 Confidential Material; (b) advise such persons that the material is Confidential; and (c) give the 9 producing party written assurance that steps (a) and (b) have been completed. 10 III. Data Security 11 8. The parties agree to provide adequate security to protect data produced by the other 12 party(ies) or by non-parties. This includes secure data storage systems, established security policies, 13 and security training for employees, contractors and experts. Adequate security also includes such 14 measures as data encryption in transit, data encryption at rest, data access controls, and physical 15 security, whether hosted/outsourced to a vendor or on premises. At a minimum, any receiving party 16 subject to the terms of this Order, will provide reasonable measures to protect non-client data 17 consistent with the American Bar Association Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional 18 Responsibility, Formal Opinion 477R. 19 IV. Clawback Provisions 20 9. The production of privileged or work-product protected documents, electronically 21 stored information (ESI) or information, whether inadvertent or otherwise, is not a waiver of the 22 privilege or protection from discovery in this case or in any other federal or state proceeding. 23 10. This Order shall be interpreted to provide the maximum protection allowed by Federal 24 Rule of Evidence (FRE) 502(d) and shall be enforceable and granted full faith and credit in all other 25 state and federal proceedings by 28 U.S. Code § 1738. In the event of any subsequent conflict of law, 26 the law that is most protective of privilege and work product shall apply. 27 11. Nothing contained herein is intended to or shall serve to limit a party’s right to 28 conduct a review of documents, ESI or information (including metadata) for relevance, 4 Case No. 2:22-cv-02243-TLN-KJN STIPULATION AND REGARDING PRODUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION 1 2 responsiveness and/or segregation of privileged and/or protected information before production. 12. If the receiving party has reason to believe that a produced document or other 3 information may reasonably be subject to a claim of privilege, then the receiving party shall 4 immediately sequester the document or information, cease using the document or information and 5 cease using any work product containing the information, and shall inform the producing party of 6 the beginning BATES number of the document or, if no BATES number is available, shall otherwise 7 inform the producing party of the information. 8 13. A producing party must give written notice to any receiving party asserting a claim 9 of privilege, work-product protection, or other ground for reclaiming documents or information (a 10 “clawback request”). After a clawback request is received, the receiving party shall immediately 11 sequester the document (if not already sequestered) and shall not review or use that document, or 12 any work product containing information taken from that document, for any purpose. The parties 13 shall meet and confer regarding any clawback request. 14 V. Who May Receive Confidential and Highly Confidential Information 15 14. Confidential Material. Any Confidential Material and the information contained 16 therein shall be disclosed only to the Court, its staff, in-house counsel and outside counsel of record 17 for each party, and also shall be disclosed on a need-to-know basis only to the parties, counsel’s staff 18 personnel, employees of a party to whom disclosure is necessary in connection with the preparation 19 for and trial of this action, and any witnesses in the case (including consulting and testifying experts) 20 as may from time to time reasonably be necessary in prosecution or defense of this action. 21 15. Highly Confidential—Attorneys’ Eyes Only Material. Material and information 22 designated as “Highly Confidential—Attorneys’ Eyes Only” shall only be disclosed to the Court, its 23 staff, in-house and outside counsel of record for each party, the secretarial, clerical, and paralegal 24 staff of each, and consulting and testifying experts retained by a party in this action. 25 16. Restriction on Disclosure to Direct Competitors. Notwithstanding the foregoing, 26 Confidential Material shall not be disclosed to any current or former employees of, or current or 27 former consultants, advisors, or agents of, a direct competitor of any party named in the litigation. 28 If a Receiving Party is in doubt about whether a particular entity is a direct competitor of a party 5 Case No. 2:22-cv-02243-TLN-KJN STIPULATION AND REGARDING PRODUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION 1 named in this lawsuit, then before disclosing any Confidential Material to a current or former 2 employee, consultant, advisor, or agent of that entity, the Receiving Party’s counsel must confer with 3 counsel for the Producing Party. 4 17. Persons Receiving Confidential Information Must Sign Exhibit A. Counsel for each 5 party shall advise all persons to whom Confidential Material is disclosed pursuant to this Order of 6 the existence of this Order and shall provide all such persons (other than the Court and its staff) with 7 a copy of this Order. Counsel shall also require such persons to execute the Affidavit attached as 8 Exhibit A, prior to the disclosure of Confidential Material. 9 18. Duties in the Event of Unauthorized Disclosures. It shall be the obligation of counsel, 10 upon learning of any unauthorized disclosure or threatened unauthorized disclosure of Confidential 11 Information, or any other breach or threatened breach of the provisions of this Order, to promptly 12 notify counsel for the Producing Party. The notification shall be supplemented with reasonable 13 details of the circumstances of the disclosure in order to permit the producing party to understand 14 and take appropriate steps. Each party and its counsel agree to take reasonable and good-faith efforts 15 to contain or limit any breach promptly upon receiving notice of it, and to make reasonable and good- 16 faith attempts to retrieve any unauthorized disclosure of documents or information. This provision 17 does not limit the producing party’s entitlement to damages resulting from any breach of this Order. 18 VI. Authorized Uses of Confidential Material 19 19. Confidential Material shall only be used for the purpose of litigating the above- 20 captioned lawsuit and may not be used in other lawsuits. 21 20. Persons having knowledge of Confidential Material and information due to their 22 participation in the conduct of this litigation shall use such knowledge and information only as 23 permitted herein, and shall not disclose such Confidential Material, their contents or any portion or 24 summary thereof to any person(s) not involved in the conduct of this litigation. 25 21. If any person having access to the Confidential Material herein shall violate this 26 Order, he/she may be subject to sanctions by the Court and may be liable to pay for the damages 27 caused by his/her violation. 28 /// 6 Case No. 2:22-cv-02243-TLN-KJN STIPULATION AND REGARDING PRODUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION 1 VII. Challenges to the Designation of Confidential Material 2 22. Any party or interested member of the public may move the Court to modify the 3 designation of any documents or information produced in this litigation (either to include additional 4 protection with respect to confidentiality or to remove a confidential designation). Before making 5 such a motion, the party or an interested member of the public shall first attempt to resolve such 6 dispute with the producing party’s counsel. Pending resolution of any challenges to the designation 7 of documents or information, the material at issue shall continue to be treated as Confidential 8 Material until ordered otherwise by the Court. The burden shall be on the party seeking to modify 9 the designation to show that the producing party’s designation is inappropriate. 10 VIII. Withholding of Information 11 23. Redactions. The parties may redact (1) information that is privileged or protected 12 from discovery as work product or by reason of any other applicable privilege or immunity; (2) 13 information subject to non-disclosure obligations imposed by governmental authorities, law or 14 regulation (e.g., protected personal information); and (3) sensitive, non-relevant information, 15 including but not limited to personally identifiable information, trade secrets, or information 16 regarding products, data, or people. Redactions of emails will not redact the names of recipients or 17 the subject line of the emails, unless the subject line is itself privileged or contains the sensitive 18 information described above, in which case only so much of the subject line will be redacted as may 19 be needed. The parties will produce redacted documents in TIFF format (or searchable PDF if 20 production format dictates; or in native format for file types that do not convert well to TIFF/PDF, 21 such as Excel files) with corresponding searchable OCR text and the associated metadata for the 22 document, ensuring the redacted content is fully protected from disclosure. 23 IX. Confidential Material In Filings, Hearings, and Trial 24 24. Confidential Material in Filings. Without written permission from the Producing 25 Party or court order secured after appropriate notice to all interested persons, a party may not file 26 Confidential Material in the public record in this action (or in any other action, such as an appeal). 27 A party that seeks to file under seal any Confidential Material must first obtain a sealing order in 28 compliance with Eastern District of California Local Rule 141. Confidential Material may only be 7 Case No. 2:22-cv-02243-TLN-KJN STIPULATION AND REGARDING PRODUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION 1 2 filed under seal in a manner prescribed by the Court for such filings. 25. Manner of Sealing. In the event Confidential Materials or portions of transcripts are 3 sealed as confidential by the Court or as described in paragraph (24) above, they shall be filed in an 4 envelope bearing the following designation when deposited: 5 CONFIDENTIAL 6 IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONFIDENTIALITY ORDER OF THE COURT, THE 7 CONTENTS OF THIS ENVELOPE SHALL BE TREATED AS CONFIDENTIAL AND MUST 8 NOT BE SHOWN TO A PERSON OTHER THAN THE COURT, ATTORNEYS IN THIS CASE, 9 OR TO PERSONS ASSISTING THOSE ATTORNEYS. 10 11 26. Confidential Material in Hearings and Trial. The provisions of this Order shall not 12 affect, and this Order does not limit, the admissibility of Confidential Material (or references to that 13 material) as evidence at trial, or during a hearing or similar proceeding in this action. Prior to using 14 Confidential Material or the information contained therein at any hearing that is open to the public, 15 the party seeking to use the Confidential Material must give at least seven (7) days advance notice 16 to the producing party of the intent to use the Confidential Material so that the producing party may 17 seek an appropriate Court Order to protect the Confidential Material. 18 X. Continuing Effect of this Order and Duty to Destroy 19 27. This Order shall continue to be binding throughout and after the conclusion of this 20 litigation, including all appeals. Within thirty (30) days of settlement or final adjudication, including 21 the expiration or exhaustion of all rights to appeal or petitions for extraordinary writs, each party or 22 non-party to whom any materials were produced shall, without further request or direction from the 23 Producing Party, promptly destroy all documents, items or data received including, but not limited 24 to, copies or summaries thereof, in the possession or control of any expert or employee. This 25 requirement to destroy includes all documents, not only those documents designated as Confidential 26 Material. The Receiving Party shall submit a written certification to the Producing Party by the 3027 day deadline that (1) confirms the destruction/deletion of all Confidential Material, including any 28 copies of Confidential Materials provided to persons required to execute Exhibit A (Affidavit), and 8 Case No. 2:22-cv-02243-TLN-KJN STIPULATION AND REGARDING PRODUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION 1 (2) affirms the Receiving Party has not retained any copies, abstracts, compilations, summaries or 2 any other format reproducing or capturing any of the Confidential Material. Notwithstanding this 3 provision, outside counsel is entitled to retain an archival copy of filings, depositions, and deposition 4 exhibits. 5 XI. Procedure if Confidential Material is Required to be Produced 6 28. If any person receiving documents covered by this Order is served with a subpoena, 7 order, interrogatory, document, or civil investigative demand (collectively, a “Demand”) issued in 8 any other action, investigation, or proceeding, and such Demand seeks material that was produced 9 or designated as Confidential Material by someone other than the Receiving Party, the Receiving 10 Party shall give prompt written notice by hand or electronic transmission within five (5) business 11 days of receipt of such Demand to the party or non-party who produced or designated the material 12 as Confidential Material, and shall object to the production of such materials on the grounds of the 13 existence of this Order. At the request of the party or non-party who produced or designated the 14 material as Confidential Material, the Receiving Party shall refuse to comply with the Demand unless 15 (a) ordered to do so by a court with jurisdiction over the Receiving Party; or (b) released in writing 16 by the party or non-party who designated the material as Confidential Material. The burden of 17 opposing the enforcement of the Demand shall fall upon the party or non-party who produced or 18 designated the material as Confidential Material. Compliance by the Receiving Party with any order 19 of a court of competent jurisdiction, directing production of any Confidential Material, shall not 20 constitute a violation of this Order. 21 XII. Application of this Order to Productions by Third Parties 22 29. This Order may be used by third parties producing documents in connection with this 23 action. Third parties may designate information as “Confidential” or “Highly Confidential – 24 Attorneys’ Eyes Only”. 25 30. If a third party produces (or intends to produce) documents and does not designate (or 26 does not intend to designate) those documents as Confidential Material, then any party to this action 27 may seek to designate that third party’s documents or categories of documents as Confidential 28 Material. In that case, it will be the burden of the party seeking protected status to move for a court 9 Case No. 2:22-cv-02243-TLN-KJN STIPULATION AND REGARDING PRODUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION 1 2 order designating the materials as Confidential Material after the parties confer. 31. In the event additional parties join or intervene in this litigation, the newly joined 3 party(ies) shall not have access to Confidential Material until its/their counsel has executed and, at 4 the request of any party, filed with the Court the agreement of such party(ies) and such counsel to be 5 fully bound by this Order. 6 32. The parties agree that nothing in this Order shall be deemed to limit the extent to 7 which counsel for the parties may advise or represent their respective clients, conduct discovery, 8 prepare for trial, present proof at trial, including any document designated Confidential Material as 9 set forth herein, or oppose the production or admissibility of any information or documents which 10 have been requested. 11 33. This Order shall remain in full force and effect until such time as it is modified, 12 amended, or rescinded by the Court. 13 XIII. No Admissions 14 34. Neither entering into this Stipulation for Protective Order, nor receiving any 15 documents or other information designated as “Confidential,” shall be construed as an agreement or 16 admission (1) that any document or information designated as “Confidential” is in fact Confidential 17 Information; (2) as to the correctness or truth of any allegation made or position taken relative to any 18 matter designated as “Confidential”; or (3) as to the authenticity, competency, relevancy, or 19 materiality of any information or document designated as “Confidential.” 20 XIV. Modification – Further Agreements 21 35. Nothing contained herein shall preclude any party from seeking from the Court, 22 modification of this Stipulated Protective Order upon proper notice or shall preclude the parties from 23 entering into other written agreements designed to protect Confidential Information. 24 /// 25 /// 26 /// 27 /// 28 /// 10 Case No. 2:22-cv-02243-TLN-KJN STIPULATION AND REGARDING PRODUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION 1 XV.

By: 14 15 /s/ James T. Conley James T. Conley Haidy M. Rivera Attorneys for Defendant WAL-MART ASSOCIATES, INC. ORDER 16 17 18 The court has reviewed the parties’ stipulated protective order. (ECF No. 7.) The 19 stipulation comports with the relevant authorities and the court’s applicable local rule. See L.R. 20 141.1. The court APPROVES the protective order, subject to the following clarification. Once an 21 action is closed, “the court will not retain jurisdiction over enforcement of the terms of any 22 23 24 25 26 27 protective order filed in that action.” L.R. 141.1(f); see also, e.g., MD Helicopters, Inc. v. Aerometals, Inc., 2017 WL 495778 (E.D. Cal., Feb. 03, 2017) (noting that courts in the district generally do not retain jurisdiction for disputes concerning protective orders after closure of the case). Thus, despite the parties’ agreement that jurisdiction extend beyond the end of this action, the court will not retain jurisdiction over this protective order once the case is closed.
