PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS Disclosure and discovery activity in this action are likely to involve production of 3 confidential, proprietary, or private information for which special protection from public 4 disclosure and from use for any purpose other than this litigation would be warranted. 5 Accordingly, the parties hereby stipulate to and petition the Court to enter the following Stipulated 6 Protective Order. The Parties acknowledge that this Order does not confer blanket protections on 7 all disclosures or responses to discovery and that the protection it affords extends only to the 8 limited information or items that are entitled under the applicable legal principles to treatment as 9 confidential. The parties further acknowledge, as set forth in Section 10, below, that this 10 Stipulated Protective Order creates no entitlement to file confidential information under seal; Civil 11 Local Rule 79-5 sets forth the procedures that must be followed and reflects the standards that will 12 be applied when a party seeks permission from the court to file material under seal. 13 14 2. DEFINITIONS 2.1 Party: any party to this action, including all of its officers, directors, 15 employees, consultants, retained experts, and outside counsel (and their support staff). 16 2.2 Disclosure or Discovery Material: all items or information, regardless of the 17 medium or manner generated, stored, or maintained (including, among other things, testimony, 18 transcripts, or tangible things) that are produced or generated in disclosures or responses to 19 discovery in this matter. 20 2.3 "Confidential" Information or Items: information (regardless of how 21 generated, stored or maintained) or tangible things that qualify for protection under standards 22 developed under Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(c). 23 2.4 "Highly Confidential Attorneys' Eyes Only" Information or Items: 24 extremely sensitive "Confidential" Information or Items whose disclosure to another Party or non25 party would create a substantial risk of serious injury that could not be avoided by less restrictive 26 means. 27 2.5 Receiving Party: a Party that receives Disclosure or Discovery Material 28 from a Producing Party. STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. C-07-4578 SI 3541525_1.DOC -1- Case 3:07-cv-04578-SI Document 101 Filed 01/14/2009 Page 3 of 15 1 2.6 Producing Party: a Party or non-party that produces Disclosure or 2 Discovery Material in this action. 3 2.7 Designating Party: a Party or non-party that designates information or items 4 that it produces in disclosures or in responses to discovery as "Confidential" or "Highly 5 Confidential Attorneys' Eyes Only." 6 2.8 Protected Material: any Disclosure or Discovery Material that is designated 7 as "Confidential" or as "Highly Confidential Attorneys' Eyes Only." 8 2.9 Outside Counsel: attorneys who are not employees of a Party but who are 9 retained to represent or advise a Party in this action. 10 11 2.10 2.11 House Counsel: attorneys who are employees of a Party. Counsel (without qualifier): Outside Counsel and House Counsel (as well as 12 their support staffs). 13 2.12 Expert: a person with specialized knowledge or experience in a matter 14 pertinent to the litigation who has been retained by a Party or its counsel to serve as an expert 15 witness or as a consultant in this action and who is not a past or a current employee of a Party or 16 of a competitor of a Party's and who, at the time of retention, is not anticipated to become an 17 employee of a Party or a competitor of a Party's. This definition includes a professional jury or 18 trial consultant retained in connection with this litigation. 19 2.13 Professional Vendors: persons or entities that provide litigation support 20 services (e.g., photocopying; videotaping; translating; preparing exhibits or demonstrations; 21 organizing, storing, retrieving data in any form or medium; etc.) and their employees and 22 subcontractors. 23 24 3. SCOPE The protections conferred by this Stipulation and Order cover not only Protected Material 25 (as defined above), but also any information copied or extracted therefrom, as well as all copies, 26 excerpts, summaries, or compilations thereof, plus testimony, conversations, or presentations by 27 parties or counsel to or in court or in other settings that might reveal Protected Material. 28 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. C-07-4578 SI 3541525_1.DOC -2- Case 3:07-cv-04578-SI Document 101 Filed 01/14/2009 Page 4 of 15 1 2 4. DURATION Even after the termination of this litigation, the confidentiality obligations imposed by this 3 Order shall remain in effect until a Designating Party agrees otherwise in writing or a court order 4 otherwise directs. 5 6 5. DESIGNATING PROTECTED MATERIAL 5.1 Exercise of Restraint and Care in Designating Material for Protection. Each 7 Party or non-party that designates information or items for protection under this Order must take 8 care to limit any such designation to specific material that qualifies under the appropriate 9 standards. A Designating Party must take care to designate for protection only those parts of 10 material, documents, items, or oral or written communications that qualify so that other portions 11 of the material, documents, items, or communications for which protection is not warranted are 12 not swept unjustifiably within the ambit of this Order. 13 Mass, indiscriminate, or routinized designations are prohibited. Designations that 14 are shown to be clearly unjustified, or that have been made for an improper purpose (e.g., to 15 unnecessarily encumber or retard the case development process, or to impose unnecessary 16 expenses and burdens on other parties), expose the Designating Party to sanctions. 17 If it comes to a Party's or a non-party's attention that information or items that it 18 designated for protection do not qualify for protection at all, or do not qualify for the level of 19 protection initially asserted, that Party or non-party must promptly notify all other parties that it is 20 withdrawing the mistaken designation. 21 5.2 Manner and Timing of Designations. Except as otherwise provided in this 22 Order (see, e.g., second paragraph of Section 5.2(a), below), or as otherwise stipulated or ordered, 23 material that qualifies for protection under this Order must be clearly so designated before the 24 material is disclosed or produced. 25 26 Designation in conformity with this Order requires: (a) for information in documentary form (apart from transcripts of 27 depositions or other pretrial or trial proceedings), that the Producing Party affix the legend 28 "CONFIDENTIAL" or "HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY" on each STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. C-07-4578 SI 3541525_1.DOC -3- Case 3:07-cv-04578-SI Document 101 Filed 01/14/2009 Page 5 of 15 1 page that contains protected material. If only a portion or portions of the material on a page 2 qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the protected portion(s) 3 (e.g., by making appropriate markings in the margins) and must specify, for each portion, the level 4 of protection being asserted (either "CONFIDENTIAL" or "HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL 5 ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY"). 6 A Party or non-party that makes original documents or materials 7 available for inspection need not designate them for protection until after the inspecting Party has 8 indicated which material it would like copied and produced. During the inspection and before the 9 designation, all of the material made available for inspection shall be deemed "HIGHLY 10 CONFIDENTIAL ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY." After the inspecting Party has identified the 11 documents it wants copied and produced, the Producing Party must determine which documents, 12 or portions thereof, qualify for protection under this Order, then, before producing the specified 13 documents, the Producing Party must affix the appropriate legend ("CONFIDENTIAL" or 14 "HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY") on each page that contains 15 Protected Material. If only a portion or portions of the material on a page qualifies for protection, 16 the Producing Party also must clearly identify the protected portion(s) (e.g., by making appropriate 17 markings in the margins) and must specify, for each portion, the level of protection being asserted 18 (either "CONFIDENTIAL" or "HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY"). 19 (b) for testimony given in deposition or in other pretrial or trial 20 proceedings, that the Party or non-party offering or sponsoring the testimony identify all protected 21 testimony, and further specify any portions of the testimony as to which protection is sought, and 22 to specify the level of protection being asserted ("CONFIDENTIAL" or "HIGHLY 23 CONFIDENTIAL ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY"), either on the record, before the close of 24 deposition hearing or other proceeding, or within 20 days after the receipt of the testimony 25 transcript. 26 Transcript pages containing Protected Material must be separately bound by 27 the court reporter, who must affix to the top of each such page the legend "CONFIDENTIAL" or 28 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. C-07-4578 SI 3541525_1.DOC -4- Case 3:07-cv-04578-SI Document 101 Filed 01/14/2009 Page 6 of 15 1 "HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY," as instructed by the Party or non2 party offering or sponsoring the witness or presenting the testimony. 3 (c) for information produced in some form other than documentary, and 4 for any other tangible items, that the Producing Party affix in a prominent place on the exterior of 5 the container or containers in which the information or item is stored the legend 6 "CONFIDENTIAL" or "HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY." If only 7 portions of the information or item warrant protection, the Producing Party, to the extent 8 practicable, shall identify the protected portions, specifying whether they qualify as 9 "CONFIDENTIAL" or as "HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY." 10 5.3 Inadvertent Failures to Designate. If timely corrected, an inadvertent failure 11 to designate qualified information or items as "CONFIDENTIAL" or "HIGHLY 12 CONFIDENTIAL ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY" does not, standing alone, waive the 13 Designating Party's right to secure protection under this Order for such material. If material is 14 appropriately designated as "CONFIDENTIAL" or "HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL 15 ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY" after the material was initially produced, the Receiving Party, on 16 timely notification of the designation, must make reasonable efforts to assure that the material is 17 treated in accordance with the provisions of this Order. 18 19 6. CHALLENGING CONFIDENTIALITY DESIGNATIONS 6.1 Timing of Challenges. Unless a prompt challenge to a Designating Party's 20 confidentiality designation is necessary to avoid foreseeable substantial unfairness, unnecessary 21 economic burdens, or a later significant disruption or delay of the litigation, a Party does not 22 waive its right to challenge a confidentiality designation by electing not to mount a challenge 23 promptly after the original designation is disclosed. 24 6.2 Meet and Confer. A Party that elects to initiate a challenge to a Designating 25 Party's confidentiality designation must do so in good faith and must begin the process by 26 conferring directly (in voice-to-voice dialogue; other forms of communication are not sufficient) 27 with counsel for the Designating Party. In conferring, the challenging Party must explain the basis 28 for its belief that the confidentiality designation was not proper and must give the Designating STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO. C-07-4578 SI 3541525_1.DOC -5- Case 3:07-cv-04578-SI Document 101 Filed 01/14/2009 Page 7 of 15 1 Party an opportunity to review the designated material, to reconsider the circumstances, and, if no 2 change in designation is offered, to explain the basis for the chosen designation. A challenging 3 Party may proceed to the next stage of the challenge process only if it has engaged in this meet 4 and confer process first. 5 6.3 Judicial Intervention. A Party that elects to press a challenge to a 6 confidentiality designation, after considering the justification offered by the Designating Party, 7 may file and serve a motion under Civil Local Rule 7 (and in compliance with Civil Local Rule 8 79-5, if applicable) that identifies the challenged material and sets forth in detail the basis for the 9 challenge. Each such motion must be accompanied by a competent declaration that affirms that 10 the movant has complied with the meet and confer requirements imposed in the preceding 11 paragraph and that sets forth with specificity the justification for the confidentiality designation 12 that was given by the Designating Party in the meet and confer dialogue. 13 Until the Court rules on the challenge, all parties shall continue to afford the 14 material in question the level of protection to which it is entitled under the Producing Party's 15 designation. 16 17 7. ACCESS TO AND USE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 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 only for 19 prosecuting, defending, or attempting to settle this litigation. Such Protected Material may be 20 disclosed only to the categories of persons and under the conditions described in this Order. When 21 the litigation has been terminated, a Receiving Party must comply with the provisions of Section 22 11 (FINAL DISPOSITION), below. 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 authorized under 25 this Order. 26 7.2 Disclosure of "CONFIDENTIAL" Information or Items. Unless otherwise 27 ordered by the Court or permitted in writing by the Designating Party, a Receiving Party may 28 disclose any information or item designated CONFIDENTIAL only to: STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO.

Pages of transcribed deposition testimony or exhibits to depositions that reveal 18 Protected Material must be separately bound by the court reporter and may not be disclosed to 19 anyone except as permitted under this Stipulated Protective Order; and 20 (g) the author of the document or the original source of the information, 21 and persons who were recipients of the document prior to its production by the Producing Party to 22 the Receiving Party. 23 7.3 Disclosure of "HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL ATTORNEYS' EYES 24 ONLY" Information or Items. Unless otherwise ordered by the court or permitted in writing by 25 the Designating Party, a Receiving Party may disclose any information or item designated 26 "HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY" only to: 27 (a) the Receiving Party's Outside Counsel of record in this action which 28 has signed the "Agreement to Be Bound by Protective Order" that is attached hereto as Exhibit A, STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO.

(e) the author of the document or the original source of the information. PROTECTED MATERIAL SUBPOENAED OR ORDERED PRODUCED IN OTHER LITIGATION 14 that would compel disclosure of any information or items designated in this action as 15 "CONFIDENTIAL" or "HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL ATTORNEYS' EYES ONLY," the 16 Receiving Party must so notify the Designating Party, in writing (by e-mail or fax, if possible) 17 immediately and in no event more than three court days after receiving the subpoena or order. 18 Such notification must include a copy of the subpoena or court order. 19 The Receiving Party also must immediately inform in writing the Party who caused 20 the subpoena or order to issue in the other litigation that some or all the material covered by the 21 subpoena or order is the subject of this Protective Order. In addition, the Receiving Party must 22 deliver a copy of this Stipulated Protective Order promptly to the Party in the other action that 23 caused the subpoena or order to issue. 24 The purpose of imposing these duties is to alert the interested parties to the 25 existence of this Protective Order and to afford the Designating Party in this case an opportunity to 26 try to protect its confidentiality interests in the court from which the subpoena or order issued. The 27 Designating Party shall bear the burdens and the expenses of seeking protection in that court of its 28 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO.

UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL If a Receiving Party learns that, by inadvertence or otherwise, it has disclosed 5 Protected Material to any person or in any circumstance not authorized under this Stipulated 6 Protective Order, the Receiving Party must immediately: (a) notify in writing the Designating 7 Party of the unauthorized disclosures; (b) use its best efforts to retrieve all copies of the Protected 8 Material; (c) inform the person or persons to whom unauthorized disclosures were made of all the 9 terms of this Order; and (d) request such person or persons to execute the "Acknowledgment and 10 Agreement to Be Bound" that is attached hereto as Exhibit A. 11 12 10. FILING PROTECTED MATERIAL Without written permission from the Designating Party or a court order secured 13 after appropriate notice to all interested persons, a Party may not file in the public record in this 14 action any Protected Material. A Party that seeks to file under seal any Protected Material must 15 comply with Civil Local Rule 79-5. 16 17 11. FINAL DISPOSITION Unless otherwise ordered or agreed in writing by the Producing Party, within sixty days 18 after the final termination of this action, each Receiving Party must either destroy or return all 19 Protected Material to the Producing Party. As used in this subdivision, "all Protected Material" 20 includes all copies, abstracts, compilations, summaries or any other form of reproducing or 21 capturing any of the Protected Material. Whether the Protected Material is returned or destroyed, 22 the Receiving Party must submit a written certification to the Producing Party (and, if not the same 23 person or entity, to the Designating Party) by the sixty day deadline that identifies (by category, 24 where appropriate) all the Protected Material that was returned or destroyed and that affirms that 25 the Receiving Party has not retained any copies, abstracts, compilations, summaries or other forms 26 of reproducing or capturing any of the Protected Material. Notwithstanding this provision, 27 Counsel are entitled to retain an archival copy of all pleadings, motion papers, transcripts, legal 28 memoranda, correspondence or attorney work product, even if such materials contain Protected STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO.

Any such archival copies that contain or constitute Protected Material remain subject to 2 this Protective Order as set forth in Section 4 (DURATION), above. 3 4 12. INADVERTENT PRODUCTION OF PRIVILEGED MATERIAL Inadvertent production or disclosure of documents or information subject to the attorney- 5 client privilege, work product immunity, or any other applicable privilege shall not constitute a 6 waiver of, nor a prejudice to, any claim in this or any other proceeding that such or related 7 material is privileged or protected by the work product immunity or any other applicable privilege, 8 provided that the Producing Party notifies the Receiving Party in writing within a reasonable time 9 after discovery of such inadvertent production. Upon receipt of such notice, all other Parties shall, 10 regardless of whether they agree with the Producing Party's claim of privilege or protection, 11 promptly: (a) destroy or segregate all copies of the inadvertently produced documents or material 12 in such Party's possession, custody, or control, and notify the Producing Party that it has done so; 13 and (b) notify the Producing Party that reasonable steps have been taken to retrieve and/or destroy 14 the inadvertently produced documents or material from other persons to whom such documents or 15 material have been provided, if any, consistent with Rule 26(b)(5)(B). 16 Compliance with this Section 12 does not, and shall not be deemed to, constitute 17 agreement that the claimed document or material is in fact privileged or entitled to protection or 18 immunity, and the Receiving Party may move the Court for an Order compelling production of 19 any inadvertently produced document or information. Such motion, however, shall not assert as a 20 ground for production the fact of the inadvertent production, nor shall the motion disclose or 21 otherwise use the content of the inadvertently produced document or information in any way. 22 23 13. MISCELLANEOUS 13.1 Right to Further Relief. Nothing in this Order abridges the right of any 24 person to seek its modification by the Court in the future. 25 13.2 Right to Assert Other Objections. By stipulating to the entry of this 26 Protective Order no Party waives any right it otherwise would have to object to disclosing or 27 producing any information or item on any ground not addressed in this Stipulated Protective 28 STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER CASE NO.
