STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER. By Magistrate Judge Craig B. Shaffer on 03/06/2014. (cbslc1)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Civil Action No. 13-cv-02594-WJM-CBS
CHAD M. WIESE,
IES COMMERCIAL, INC.,
STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER
Plaintiff Chad M. Wiese (“Plaintiff”) and Defendant IES Commercial, Inc. (“Defendant”)
(collectively the “Parties”), by and through their respective counsel, stipulate to the entry of this
Protective Order Concerning Confidential Information, as follows:
This Protective Order shall apply to all documents, materials, and information, including
without limitation, documents produced, answers to interrogatories, responses to requests for admission,
deposition testimony, and other information disclosed pursuant to the disclosure or discovery duties
created by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and designated as “CONFIDENTIAL” pursuant to the
terms of this Protective Order.
As used in this Protective Order, “document” is defined as provided in Fed.R.Civ.P. 34(a).
A draft or non-identical copy is a separate document within the meaning of this term.
“CONFIDENTIAL” information covered under the terms of this protective order shall
include documents, materials and/or information produced by either Plaintiff or Defendant, or any of
Defendant’s agents or representatives, when designated as “CONFIDENTIAL” as provided herein, that
include proprietary and/or confidential information not publicly available, which implicate a privilege or
legitimate privacy interest.
As a condition of designating documents “CONFIDENTIAL,” the documents must be reviewed
by a lawyer of the designating party 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.
CONFIDENTIAL information shall not be disclosed or used for any purpose except the
preparation and trial of this case.
CONFIDENTIAL information shall not, without the consent of the party producing it or
further Order of the Court, be disclosed except that such information may be disclosed to:
(a) attorneys working on this case;
(b) persons regularly employed or associated with the attorneys working on the case
whose assistance is required by said attorneys in the preparation for trial, at trial, or at other proceedings
in this case;
(c) the Parties and designated representatives for Defendant;
(d) expert witnesses and consultants retained in connection with this proceeding, to the
extent such disclosure is necessary for preparation, trial or other proceedings in this case;
(e) the Court and its employees ("Court Personnel");
(f) stenographic reporters who are engaged in proceedings necessarily incident to the
conduct of this action;
(g) deponents, witnesses, or potential witnesses; and
(h) other persons by written agreement of the Parties.
Documents are designated as CONFIDENTIAL by placing or affixing on them (in a
manner that will not interfere with their legibility) or otherwise designating as CONFIDENTIAL in clear
and conspicuous manner the following or other appropriate notice: “CONFIDENTIAL.”
The Court has entered an Order, agreed to by the Parties, providing for a F.R.E. 502 Non-
Waiver Clawback Agreement related to the inadvertent or unintentional disclosure by the producing party
of confidential and/or privileged information.
All depositions shall be treated as CONFIDENTIAL until expiration of thirty (30) days
after the deposition. Whenever a deposition involves the disclosure of CONFIDENTIAL information, the
deposition or portions thereof shall be designated as CONFIDENTIAL and shall be subject to the
provisions of this Protective Order. Such designation shall be made on the record during the deposition
whenever possible, but a party may designate portions of depositions as CONFIDENTIAL after
transcription, provided written notice of the designation is promptly given to all counsel of record within
thirty (30) days after notice by the court reporter of the completion of the transcript.
A party may object to the designation of particular CONFIDENTIAL information by
giving written notice to the party designating the disputed information. The written notice shall identify
the information to which the objection is made. If the Parties cannot resolve the objection within ten (10)
business days after the time the notice is received, it shall be the obligation of the party objecting to
designating the information as CONFIDENTIAL to file an appropriate motion requesting that the Court
determine whether the disputed information should be subject to the terms of this Protective Order within
thirty (30) days of the aforementioned notice. If such a motion is timely filed, the disputed information
shall be treated as CONFIDENTIAL under the terms of this Protective Order until the Court rules on the
motion. If the party objecting to designation fails to file such a motion within the prescribed time, the
disputed information shall be treated as CONFIDENTIAL in accordance with this Protective Order. In
connection with a motion filed under this provision, the party objecting to designating the information as
CONFIDENTIAL shall bear the burden of establishing that the disputed information should not be treated
As with all court filings, the Parties shall comply with D.C.COLO.LCivR 7.2 and
D.C.COLO. ECF. PROC. 5.1 as to any request to restrict access based on this Protective Order.
This Protective Order may be modified by the Court at any time for good cause shown
following notice to all Parties and an opportunity for them to be heard.
Dated at Denver, Colorado this 6th day of March, 2014.
