PURPOSE 2 This Order will govern discovery of electronically stored information (“ESI”) in this case as a 3 supplement to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, this Court’s Guidelines for the Discovery of 4 Electronically Stored Information, and any other applicable orders and rules. 5 2. 6 COOPERATION The parties are aware of the importance the Court places on cooperation and commit to cooperate in 7 good faith throughout the matter consistent with this Court’s Guidelines for the Discovery of ESI. 8 3. 9 LIAISON The parties have identified liaisons to each other who are and will be knowledgeable about and 10 responsible for discussing their respective ESI. Each e-discovery liaison will be, or have access to those 11 who are, knowledgeable about the technical aspects of e-discovery, including the location, nature, 12 accessibility, format, collection, search methodologies, and production of ESI in this matter. The parties 13 will rely on the liaisons, as needed, to confer about ESI and to help resolve disputes without court 14 intervention. 15 4. PRESERVATION 16 The parties have discussed their preservation obligations and needs and agree that preservation of 17 potentially relevant ESI will be reasonable and proportionate. To reduce the costs and burdens of 18 preservation and to ensure proper ESI is preserved, the parties agree that: 19 20 21 22 a) Only ESI created or received between January 1, 2008 and Final Disposition of this matter, as defined in the Stipulated Protective Order entered in this case, will be preserved; b) The parties have agreed/will agree on the number of custodians per party for whom ESI will be preserved; 23 24 PARSONS BEHLE & LATIMER 960 S.

SEARCH 12 The parties agree that in responding to an initial FED. R. CIV. P. 34 request, or earlier if appropriate, 13 they will meet and confer about methods to search ESI in order to identify ESI that is subject to production 14 in discovery and filter out ESI that is not subject to discovery. 15 6. 16 PRODUCTION FORMATS The parties agree to produce documents in PDF, TIFF, native, and/or paper, or a 17 combination thereof (check all that apply), file formats. If particular documents warrant a different format, 18 the parties will cooperate to arrange for the mutually acceptable production of such documents. The parties 19 agree not to degrade the searchability of documents as part of the document production process. 20 7. 21 DOCUMENTS PROTECTED FROM DISCOVERY a) Pursuant to FED. R. EVID. 502(d), the production of a privileged or work-product-protected 22 document, whether inadvertent or otherwise, is not a waiver of privilege or protection from discovery in this 23 case or in any other federal or state proceeding. For example, the mere production of privileged or work- 24 PARSONS BEHLE & LATIMER 960 S.
