White v. Weidner Property Management
MINUTE ORDER. ORDERED that the Motion for Protective Order 23 is DENIED without prejudice, and the proposed Protective Order is REFUSED, by Magistrate Judge Kathleen M. Tafoya on 11/26/13.(sgrim)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Magistrate Judge Kathleen M. Tafoya
Civil Action No. 13BcvB01644BPABBKMT
WEIDNER PROPERTY MANAGEMENT,
ORDER ENTERED BY MAGISTRATE JUDGE KATHLEEN M. TAFOYA
This matter is before me on the “Stipulated Motion for Protective Order.” (Doc. No. 23, filed
Nov. 25, 2013.). The Motion is DENIED and the proposed Protective Order is REFUSED.
The parties are granted leave to submit a motion for protective order and revised form of
protective order consistent with the comments contained here.
Gillard v. Boulder Valley School District, 196 F.R.D. 382 (D. Colo. 2000), sets out certain
requirements for the issuance of a blanket protective order such as the one sought here. Among
other things, any information designated by a party as confidential must first be reviewed by a
lawyer who will certify that the designation as confidential is “based on a good faith belief that
[the information] is confidential or otherwise entitled to protection.” Gillard, 196 F.R.D. at 386.
The proposed Protective Order does not comply with this requirement established in Gillard.
Therefore, it is ORDERED that the Motion for Protective Order (Doc. No. 23) is DENIED
without prejudice, and the proposed Protective Order is REFUSED.
