Davis et al v. United States of America et al
ORDER re: 58 Proposed protective order. Supplemental declaration due by 06/29/17. Signed by Judge Thelton E. Henderson on 06/26/17. (tehlc3, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 6/26/2017)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
DORIS DAVIS, et al.,
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS
AFFAIRS, et al.,
Case No. 16-cv-06258-TEH
ORDER RE: PROPOSED
The parties have adequately explained all but one proposed modification from the
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Northern District’s form protective order: removing from paragraph 7.2(f) the requirement
that deposition witnesses sign the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound.”
Defendants’ declaration, ECF No. 58-2, is silent as to this paragraph. Plaintiffs’
declaration states the following:
Plaintiffs revised Paragraphs 7.2(a), (b) & (f) to delete the
provisions that require certain persons, including employees of
Sidley Austin LLP and NVLSP, to sign Exhibit A. Sidley
Austin LLP and NVLSP have numerous employees who may
perform secretarial or litigation support roles from time to
time, and who are already under a duty not to disclose matters
on which they perform services.
ECF No. 58-1 at ¶ 3. While the stated rationale applies to paragraphs 7.2(a) and (b), which
concern counsel, officers, directors, and employees, paragraph 7.2(f) concerns deposition
witnesses, some of whom may not fall into those categories. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY
ORDERED that counsel shall file, by June 29, 2017, a supplemental declaration
explaining the basis for modifying paragraph 7.2(f).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
