Schaffer (153612) Christopher Carling (254166) Kerley Schaffer LLP 1939 Harrison Street, #900 Oakland, California 94612 Telephone: (510) 379-5801 5 Attorneys for Plaintiffs 2 3 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 E VERRICK WISE an individual, NOEL RUSSELL, an individual, and LAWRENCE MARKS, an individual, 12 13 14 15 16 Case No. 4:23-cv-00163-HSG STIPULATION AND PROTECTIVE ORDER REGARDING PRODUCTION OF DOCUMENTS AND RESTRICTING DISSEMINATION OF DISCOVERY Plaintiffs, v. STATE FARM GENERAL INSURANCE COMPANY, an Illinois corporation, and DOES 1 through 10, Complaint filed: January 12, 2023 Defendants. 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 1 Sipulation and Protective Order Defendant State Farm General Insurance Company (“State Farm”) and plaintiffs E 1 2 Verrick Wise and Noel Russell (“Plaintiffs”) hereby stipulate to the following protective order 3 with respect to and to accommodate State Farm’s production of certain documents in response to 4 requests for production of documents propounded in this matter. 5 1. PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS 6 Disclosure and discovery activity in this action are likely to involve production of 7 confidential, proprietary, or private information for which special protection from public 8 disclosure and from use for any purpose other than prosecuting this litigation may be warranted. 9 Accordingly, the parties hereby stipulate to and petition the court to enter the following 10 Stipulated Protective Order. The parties acknowledge that this Order does not confer blanket 11 protections on all disclosures or responses to discovery and that the protection it affords from 12 public disclosure and use extends only to the limited information or items that are entitled to 13 confidential treatment under the applicable legal principles. The parties further acknowledge, as 14 set forth in Section 12.3, below, that this Stipulated Protective Order does not entitle them to file 15 confidential information under seal; Civil Local Rule 79-5 sets forth the procedures that must be 16 followed and the standards that will be applied when a party seeks permission from the court to 17 file material under seal. 18 2. 19 20 21 DEFINITIONS 2.1 Challenging Party: a Party or Non-Party that challenges the designation of information or items under this Order. 2.2 “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items: information (regardless of how it is 22 generated, stored or maintained) or tangible things that qualify for protection under Federal Rule 23 of Civil Procedure 26(c). 24 25 26 2.3 Counsel (without qualifier): Outside Counsel of Record and House Counsel (as well as their support staff). 2.4 Designating Party: a Party or Non-Party that designates information or items that 27 it produces in disclosures or in responses to discovery as “CONFIDENTIAL Pursuant to 28 Protective Order.” 2 Sipulation and Protective Order 2.5 1 Disclosure or Discovery Material: all items or information, regardless of the 2 medium or manner in which it is generated, stored, or maintained (including, among other things, 3 testimony, transcripts, and tangible things), that are produced or generated in disclosures or 4 responses to discovery in this matter. 2.6 5 Expert: a person with specialized knowledge or experience in a matter pertinent to 6 the litigation who has been retained by a Party or its counsel to serve as an expert witness or as a 7 consultant in this action. 2.7 8 9 Counsel does not include Outside Counsel of Record or any other outside counsel. 2.8 10 11 House Counsel: attorneys who are employees of a party to this action. House Non-Party: any natural person, partnership, corporation, association, or other legal entity not named as a Party to this action. 2.9 12 Outside Counsel of Record: attorneys who are not employees of a party to this 13 action but are retained to represent or advise a party to this action and have appeared in this 14 action on behalf of that party or are affiliated with a law firm which has appeared on behalf of 15 that party. 2.10 16 17 consultants, retained experts, and Outside Counsel of Record (and their support staffs). 2.11 18 19 Party: any party to this action, including all of its officers, directors, employees, Producing Party: a Party or Non-Party that produces Disclosure or Discovery Material in this action. 2.12 20 Professional Vendors: persons or entities that provide litigation support services 21 (e.g., photocopying, videotaping, translating, preparing exhibits or demonstrations, and 22 organizing, storing, or retrieving data in any form or medium) and their employees and 23 subcontractors. 2.13 24 25 Protected Material: any Disclosure or Discovery Material that is designated as “CONFIDENTIAL Pursuant to Protective Order.” 2.14 26 Receiving Party: a Party that receives Disclosure or Discovery Material from a 27 Producing Party. 28 // 3 Sipulation and Protective Order 1 3. SCOPE The protections conferred by this Stipulation and Order cover not only Protected Material 2 3 (as defined above), but also (1) any information copied or extracted from Protected Material; (2) 4 all copies, excerpts, summaries, or compilations of Protected Material; and (3) any testimony, 5 conversations, or presentations by Parties or their Counsel that might reveal Protected Material. 6 However, the protections conferred by this Stipulation and Order do not cover the following 7 information: (a) any information that is in the public domain at the time of disclosure to a 8 Receiving Party or becomes part of the public domain after its disclosure to a Receiving Party as 9 a result of publication not involving a violation of this Order, including becoming part of the 10 public record through trial or otherwise; and (b) any information known to the Receiving Party 11 prior to the disclosure or obtained by the Receiving Party after the disclosure from a source who 12 obtained the information lawfully and under no obligation of confidentiality to the Designating 13 Party. Any use of Protected Material at trial shall be governed by a separate agreement or order. 14 4. DURATION 15 Even after final disposition of this litigation, the confidentiality obligations imposed by 16 this Order shall remain in effect until a Designating Party agrees otherwise in writing or a court 17 order otherwise directs. Final disposition shall be deemed to be the later of (1) dismissal of all 18 claims and defenses in this action, with or without prejudice; and (2) final judgment herein after 19 the completion and exhaustion of all appeals, rehearings, remands, trials, or reviews of this 20 action, including the time limits for filing any motions or applications for extension of time 21 pursuant to applicable law. 22 5. 23 DESIGNATING PROTECTED MATERIAL 5.1 Exercise of Restraint and Care in Designating Material for Protection. Each Party 24 or Non-Party that designates information or items for protection under this Order must take care 25 to limit any such designation to specific material that qualifies under the appropriate standards. 26 The Designating Party must designate for protection only those parts of material, documents, 27 items, or oral or written communications that qualify – so that other portions of the material, 28 4 Sipulation and Protective Order 1 documents, items, or communications for which protection is not warranted are not swept 2 unjustifiably within the ambit of this Order. 3 Mass, indiscriminate, or routinized designations are prohibited. Designations that are 4 shown to be clearly unjustified or that have been made for an improper purpose (e.g., to 5 unnecessarily encumber or retard the case development process or to impose unnecessary 6 expenses and burdens on other parties) may expose the Designating Party to sanctions. 7 If it comes to a Designating Party’s attention that information or items that it designated 8 for protection do not qualify for protection, that Designating Party must promptly notify all other 9 Parties that it is withdrawing the mistaken designation. 10 5.2 Manner and Timing of Designations. Except as otherwise provided in this Order 11 (see, e.g., second paragraph of section 5.2(a) below), or as otherwise stipulated or ordered, 12 Disclosure or Discovery Material that qualifies for protection under this Order must be clearly so 13 designated before the material is disclosed or produced. 14 Designation in conformity with this Order requires: 15 (a) for information in documentary form (e.g., paper or electronic documents, but 16 excluding transcripts of depositions or other pretrial or trial proceedings), that the Producing 17 Party affix the legend “CONFIDENTIAL Pursuant to Protective Order” to each page that 18 contains protected material. If only a portion or portions of the material on a page qualifies for 19 protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the protected portion(s) (e.g., by 20 making appropriate markings in the margins). 21 A Party or Non-Party that makes original documents or materials available for inspection 22 need not designate them for protection until after the inspecting Party has indicated which 23 material it would like copied and produced. During the inspection and before the designation, all 24 of the material made available for inspection shall be deemed “CONFIDENTIAL Pursuant to 25 Protective Order.” After the inspecting Party has identified the documents it wants copied and 26 produced, the Producing Party must determine which documents, or portions thereof, qualify for 27 protection under this Order. Then, before producing the specified documents, the Producing 28 Party must affix the “CONFIDENTIAL Pursuant to Protective Order” legend to each page that 5 Sipulation and Protective Order 1 contains Protected Material. If only a portion or portions of the material on a page qualifies for 2 protection, the Producing Party also must clearly identify the protected portion(s) (e.g., by 3 making appropriate markings in the margins). (b) 4 for testimony given in deposition or in other pretrial or trial proceedings, that the 5 Designating Party identify on the record, before the close of the deposition, hearing, or other 6 proceeding, all protected testimony. (c) 7 for information produced in some form other than documentary and for any other 8 tangible items, that the Producing Party affix in a prominent place on the exterior of the 9 container or containers in which the information or item is stored the legend “CONFIDENTIAL 10 Pursuant to Protective Order” and/or alter the file name of the native ESI to include “Conf.” and 11 shall inform all recipients in writing of the designation at the time that the ESI is produced. If 12 only a portion or portions of the information or item warrant protection, the Producing Party, to 13 the extent practicable, shall identify the protected portion(s). 5.3 14 Inadvertent Failures to Designate. If timely corrected, an inadvertent failure to 15 designate qualified information or items does not, standing alone, waive the Designating Party’s 16 right to secure protection under this Order for such material. Upon timely correction of a 17 designation, the Receiving Party must make reasonable efforts to assure that the material is 18 treated in accordance with the provisions of this Order. 19 6. 20 CHALLENGING CONFIDENTIALITY DESIGNATIONS 6.1 Timing of Challenges. Any Party or Non-Party may challenge a designation of 21 confidentiality at any time. Unless a prompt challenge to a Designating Party’s confidentiality 22 designation is necessary to avoid foreseeable, substantial unfairness, unnecessary economic 23 burdens, or a significant disruption or delay of the litigation, a Party does not waive its right to 24 challenge a confidentiality designation by electing not to mount a challenge promptly after the 25 original designation is disclosed. 26 6.2 Meet and Confer. The Challenging Party shall initiate the dispute resolution 27 process by providing written notice of each designation it is challenging and describing the basis 28 for each challenge. To avoid ambiguity as to whether a challenge has been made, the written 6 Sipulation and Protective Order 1 notice must recite that the challenge to confidentiality is being made in accordance with this 2 specific paragraph of the Protective Order. The parties shall attempt to resolve each challenge in 3 good faith and must begin the process by conferring directly (in voice to voice dialogue; other 4 forms of communication are not sufficient) within 14 days of the date of service of notice. In 5 conferring, the Challenging Party must explain the basis for its belief that the confidentiality 6 designation was not proper and must give the Designating Party a reasonable opportunity to 7 review the designated material, to reconsider the circumstances, and, if no change in designation 8 is offered, to explain the basis for the chosen designation. A Challenging Party may proceed to 9 the next stage of the challenge process only if it has engaged in this meet and confer process first 10 or establishes that the Designating Party is unwilling to participate in the meet and confer 11 process in a timely manner. 12 6.3 Judicial Intervention. If the Parties cannot resolve a challenge without court 13 intervention, the Challenging Party shall file and serve a motion to challenge confidentiality 14 under Civil Local Rule 7 (and in compliance with Civil Local Rule 79-5, if applicable) within 21 15 days of the initial notice of challenge or within 14 days of the parties agreeing that the meet and 16 confer process will not resolve their dispute, whichever is earlier. Each such motion must be 17 accompanied by a competent declaration affirming that the movant has complied with the meet 18 and confer requirements imposed in the preceding paragraph. Failure by the Challenging Party to 19 make such a motion including the required declaration within 21 days (or 14 days, if applicable) 20 shall automatically waive challenging the confidentiality designation for each challenged 21 designation. Any motion brought pursuant to this provision must be accompanied by a competent 22 declaration affirming that the movant has complied with the meet and confer requirements 23 imposed by the preceding paragraph. 24 The burden of persuasion in any such challenge proceeding shall be on the Designating 25 Party. Frivolous challenges, and those made for an improper purpose (e.g., to harass or impose 26 unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) may expose the Challenging Party to 27 sanctions. All parties shall continue to afford the material in question the level of protection to 28 which it is entitled under the Producing Party’s designation until the court rules on the challenge. 7 Sipulation and Protective Order 1 7. ACCESS TO AND USE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 7.1 2 Basic Principles. A Receiving Party may use Protected Material that is disclosed 3 or produced by another Party or by a Non-Party in connection with this case only for 4 prosecuting, defending, or attempting to settle this litigation. Such Protected Material may be 5 disclosed only to the categories of persons and under the conditions described in this Order. 6 Protected Material must be stored and maintained by a Receiving Party at a location and in a 7 secure manner that ensures that access is limited to the persons authorized under this Order. Final Disposition – Reservations. Nothing in this Protective Order disallows 8 7.2 9 Defendants from: 10 (a) complying with any state or federal law or regulation, including reporting of 11 information to a regulator or government entity as permitted and/or required by applicable state 12 and federal law; (b) 13 adding information discovered that is relevant to a claim to the relevant electronic 14 record in its electronic claim system, or maintaining or using such information and documents in 15 the ordinary course of its business operations; 16 (c) disclosing evidence of a crime or fraud; 17 (d) retaining information necessary to meet mandated retention requirements 18 including complying with the privacy and records retention requirements of the California 19 Department of Insurance and other state and federal laws or Court orders; (e) 20 21 reporting information as permitted and/or required by applicable state and federal law, including reporting to the Insurance Services Office, Inc., or; (f) 22 retaining copies of Protected Information that may exist on back-up media or 23 other computer or archive storage not regularly accessed by business users in the ordinary 24 course, 25 26 27 28 Provided that should a copy of the Confidential Information be accessed, it will not be used for a purpose inconsistent with this Order. 7.3 Disclosure of “CONFIDENTIAL” Information or Items. Unless otherwise ordered by the court or permitted in writing by the Designating Party, a Receiving Party may 8 Sipulation and Protective Order 1 disclose any information or item designated “CONFIDENTIAL Pursuant to Protective Order” 2 only to (a) the Receiving Party’s Outside Counsel of Record in this action, as well as employees 3 of said Outside Counsel of Record to whom it is reasonably necessary to disclose the information 4 for this litigation; (b) the officers, directors, and employees (including House Counsel) of the 5 Receiving Party to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this litigation; (c) Experts (as 6 defined in this Order) of the Receiving Party to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this 7 litigation and who have signed the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit A); 8 (d) the court and its personnel; (e) court reporters and their staff, professional jury or trial 9 consultants, mock jurors, and Professional Vendors to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary 10 for this litigation and who have signed the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” 11 (Exhibit A); (f) during their depositions, witnesses in the action to whom disclosure is reasonably 12 necessary and who have signed the “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” (Exhibit 13 A), unless otherwise agreed by the Designating Party or ordered by the court. Pages of 14 transcribed deposition testimony or exhibits to depositions that reveal Protected Material must be 15 separately bound by the court reporter and may not be disclosed to anyone except as permitted 16 under this Stipulated Protective Order; (g) the author or recipient of a document containing the 17 information or a custodian or other person who otherwise lawfully possessed or knew the 18 information; (h) law enforcement officers, and/or other government agencies, as permitted or 19 required by applicable state and federal law; (i) a jury involved in litigation concerning the 20 claims and any defenses to any claims in this lawsuit; (j) anyone as otherwise required by law; 21 and (k) as authorized by the Parties specifically. 22 8. PROTECTED MATERIAL SUBPOENAED OR ORDERED PRODUCED IN OTHER 23 LITIGATION 24 If a Party is served with a subpoena or a court order issued in other litigation that compels 25 disclosure of any information or items designated in this action as “CONFIDENTIAL Pursuant 26 to Protective Order,” that Party must: 27 28 (a) promptly notify in writing the Designating Party. Such notification shall include a copy of the subpoena or court order; 9 Sipulation and Protective Order (b) 1 promptly notify in writing the party who caused the subpoena or order to issue in 2 the other litigation that some or all of the material covered by the subpoena or order is subject to 3 this Protective Order. Such notification shall include a copy of this Stipulated Protective Order; 4 and (c) 5 6 cooperate with respect to all reasonable procedures sought to be pursued by the Designating Party whose Protected Material may be affected. If the Designating Party timely seeks a protective order, the Party served with the 7 8 subpoena or court order shall not produce any information designated in this action as 9 “CONFIDENTIAL Pursuant to Protective Order” before a determination by the court from 10 which the subpoena or order issued, unless the Party has obtained the Designating Party’s 11 permission. The Designating Party shall bear the burden and expense of seeking protection in 12 that court of its confidential material – and nothing in these provisions should be construed as 13 authorizing or encouraging a Receiving Party in this action to disobey a lawful directive from 14 another court. 15 9. A NON-PARTY’S PROTECTED MATERIAL SOUGHT TO BE PRODUCED IN THIS 16 LITIGATION 17 (a) The terms of this Order are applicable to information produced by a Non-Party in 18 this action and designated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” Such information produced by Non-Parties in 19 connection with this litigation is protected by the remedies and relief provided by this Order. 20 Nothing in these provisions should be construed as prohibiting a Non-Party from seeking 21 additional protections. (b) 22 In the event that a Party is required, by a valid discovery request, to produce a 23 Non-Party’s confidential information in its possession, and the Party is subject to an agreement 24 with the Non-Party not to produce the Non-Party’s confidential information, then the Party shall: (1) 25 promptly notify in writing the Requesting Party and the Non-Party that 26 some or all of the information requested is subject to a confidentiality agreement with a Non- 27 Party; 28 10 Sipulation and Protective Order (2) 1 promptly provide the Non-Party with a copy of the Stipulated Protective 2 Order in this litigation, the relevant discovery request(s), and a reasonably specific description of 3 the information requested; and (3) 4 (c) 5 make the information requested available for inspection by the Non-Party. If the Non-Party fails to object or seek a protective order from this court within 14 6 days of receiving the notice and accompanying information, the Receiving Party may produce 7 the Non-Party’s confidential information responsive to the discovery request. If the Non-Party 8 timely seeks a protective order, the Receiving Party shall not produce any information in its 9 possession or control that is subject to the confidentiality agreement with the Non-Party before a 10 determination by the court. Absent a court order to the contrary, the Non-Party shall bear the 11 burden and expense of seeking protection in this court of its Protected Material. 12 10. UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL If a Receiving Party learns that, by inadvertence or otherwise, it has disclosed Protected 13 14 Material to any person or in any circumstance not authorized under this Stipulated Protective 15 Order, the Receiving Party must immediately (a) notify in writing the Designating Party of the 16 unauthorized disclosures, (b) use its best efforts to retrieve all unauthorized copies of the 17 Protected Material, (c) inform the person or persons to whom unauthorized disclosures were 18 made of all the terms of this Order, and (d) request such person or persons to execute the 19 “Acknowledgment and Agreement to Be Bound” that is attached hereto as Exhibit A. 20 11. INADVERTENT PRODUCTION OF PRIVILEGED OR OTHERWISE PROTECTED 21 MATERIAL 22 When a Producing Party gives notice to Receiving Parties that certain inadvertently 23 produced material is subject to a claim of privilege or other protection, the obligations of the 24 Receiving Parties are those set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(b)(5)(B). This 25 provision is not intended to modify whatever procedure may be established in an e-discovery 26 order that provides for production without prior privilege review. Pursuant to Federal Rule of 27 Evidence 502(d) and (e), insofar as the parties reach an agreement on the effect of disclosure of a 28 communication or information covered by the attorney-client privilege or work product 11 Sipulation and Protective Order 1 protection, the parties may incorporate their agreement in the stipulated protective order 2 submitted to the court. 3 12. 12.1 4 5 MISCELLANEOUS Right to Further Relief. Nothing in this Order abridges the right of any person to seek its modification by the court in the future. 12.2 6 Right to Assert Other Objections. By stipulating to the entry of this Protective 7 Order no Party waives any right it otherwise would have to object to disclosing or producing any 8 information or item on any ground not addressed in this Stipulated Protective Order. Similarly, 9 no Party waives any right to object on any ground to use in evidence of any of the material 10 covered by this Protective Order. 12.3 11 Filing Protected Material. Without written permission from the Designating Party 12 or a court order secured after appropriate notice to all interested persons, a Party may not file in 13 the public record in this action any Protected Material. A Party that seeks to file under seal any 14 Protected Material must comply with Civil Local Rule 79-5. Protected Material may only be 15 filed under seal pursuant to a court order authorizing the sealing of the specific Protected 16 Material at issue. Pursuant to Civil Local Rule 79-5, a sealing order will issue only upon a 17 request establishing that the Protected Material at issue is privileged, protectable as a trade 18 secret, or otherwise entitled to protection under the law. If a Receiving Party’s request to file 19 Protected Material under seal pursuant to Civil Local Rule 79-5(d) is denied by the court, then 20 the Receiving Party may file the information in the public record pursuant to Civil Local Rule 21 79-5(e) unless otherwise instructed by the court. 22 13. 23 FINAL DISPOSITION Subject to Paragraph 7.2 above, within 60 days after the final disposition of this action, as 24 defined in Paragraph 4, each Receiving Party must return all Protected Material to each 25 Producing Party or destroy such material. As used in this subdivision, “all Protected Material” 26 includes all copies, abstracts, compilations, summaries, and any other format reproducing or 27 capturing any of the Protected Material. Whether the Protected Material is returned or destroyed, 28 the Receiving Party must submit a written certification to the Producing Party by the 60 day 12 Sipulation and Protective Order 1 deadline that (1) identifies (by category, where appropriate) all the Protected Material that was 2 returned or destroyed and (2) affirms that the Receiving Party has not retained any copies, 3 abstracts, compilations, summaries or any other format reproducing or capturing any of the 4 Protected Material. Notwithstanding this provision, Counsel are entitled to retain an archival 5 copy of all pleadings, motion papers, trial, deposition, and hearing transcripts, legal memoranda, 6 correspondence, deposition and trial exhibits, expert reports, attorney work product, and 7 consultant and expert work product, even if such materials contain Protected Material. Any such 8 archival copies that contain or constitute Protected Material remain subject to this Protective 9 Order as set forth in Section 4. To the extent that this Protective Order requires the destruction or 10 return of documents at the conclusion of this case, this requirement is not intended to require 11 Defendants to return or destroy any documents they are otherwise required by law to maintain. 12 13 IT IS SO STIPULATED, THROUGH COUNSEL OF RECORD.
