The Court finds that documents to be exchanged in this matter may include
or other business or trade secret
information of a proprietary, confidential, or commercially sensitive nature as to both
parties, as well as that which may be potentially invasive of nonparties' legitimate
privacy interests. Upon this showing of good cause in support of the entry of

information that may be utilized and sought in this case, lT lS ORDERED:

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.

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 it may be disclosed to:
(a) attorneys actively working on this case;
(b) persons regularly employed or associated with the attorneys actively 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 designated representatives of the entity parties;
(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

(f) stenographic reporters who are engaged in proceedings necessarily incident
to the conduct of this action;
(g) deponents, witnesses, or potentialwitnesses; and
(h) other persons by written agreement of the parties.
Prior to disclosing any CONFIDENTIAL information to any person listed
above (other than counsel, persons employed by counsel, Court Personnel and
stenographic reporters, and other persons by written agreement of the parties), counsel
shall provide such person with a copy of this Protective Order and obtain from such
person a written acknowledgment in the form attached as Exhibit A to this Protective
Order stating that he or she has read this Protective Order and agrees to be bound by
its provisions. All such acknowledgments shall be retained by counsel and shall

them (in a manner that will not interfere with their legibility) the following or other
appropriate notice: "CONFIDENTIAL.' Unless otherwise agreed between the parties or
otherwise permitted under this Order,

be made at the time when the information
deposition involves the disclosure
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

required by Local Rule 7.2.
a party provides any material containing
CONFIDENTIAL information without designating the material as such, whether by
document production or deposition testimony, the party may subsequently inform the
receiving party in writing of the CONFIDENTIAL information status of the material and
it as CONFIDENTIAL. The
parties shall thereafter treat the disclosed
material as CONFIDENTIAL information in accordance with the written notification of
the inadvertent disclosure. The parties shall take reasonable steps to advise persons to
whom disclosure was made prior

the attorney-client privilege or work product protection that are inadvertently disclosed
shall immediately be returned to the producing party and any copies or summaries of, or
notes relating to, any such inadvertently or mistakenly produced information shall be
destroyed. Any such inadvertent disclosure, whether as part of a voluminous document
review or otheruvise, shall not be construed as a waiver of the attorney-client privilege or
work product doctrine.

information by giving written notice to the party designating the disputed information.

upon, each document and all copies thereof which have been designated as
CONFIDENTIAL shall be returned to the party that designated it CONFIDENTIAL, or the
