Language Line Services, Inc. v. Language Services Associates, LLC et al Doc. 76 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 For example, Paragraph 4 requires objections to confidentiality designations to be made within 20 days from the date the designation is received by counsel. This provision would preclude counsel from challenging a designation of information that was confidential when designated, but later loses its confidential nature. This provision would also put an unnecessary and undue burden on a party when one side produces documents with a large number of confidentiality designations. There is simply no reason for precluding a party from challenging a confidentiality designation when that party learns that a challenge is warranted, even if the party does not realize a challenge is warranted until months or even years after the designation.
