Why the information Lloyds seeks to designate as “highly confidential” merits that level of protection. 3. Should the court agree with Lloyds that the above provisions are appropriate, why 19 should the protective order not include a fee-shifting provision if Plaintiffs 20 successfully challenge Lloyd’s designations of “highly confidential” materials and/or 21 “competitors.” 22 The temporary protective order entered on December 6, 2012 (Dkt.
