Case 6:17-cv-00003-JRH-GRS Document 10-1 Filed 01/27/17 Page lot9 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA STATESBORO DIVISION SHERON JOHNSON, Plaintiff, CIVIL ACTION FILE NO.6:17-cv-00003 WAL-MART STORES,INC. and WAL-MART REALTY COMPANY, Defendants. CONSENT CONFIDENTIALITY ORDER The parties to this action have come before the Court requesting a confidentiality order. The parties agree and consent that the "good cause" requirement of Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(c)(1) exists in this case in order to expedite the flow of discovery material, facilitate the prompt resolution of disputes over confidentiality, adequately protect material entitled to be kept confidential, and ensure that protection is afforded only to material so entitled. The parties further consent and agree that a multitude of confidential and proprietary corporate documents which will be requested and produced in this litigation necessitate a protective order specifically in regard to those that include financial, trade secret, confidential or proprietary business information. After careful consideration, the Court finds that the "good cause" requirement of Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(c)(1) has been met and therefore GRANTS the Parties' request for a protective order as set forth below. However, nothing in this Order shall be construed as allowing the parties to file any documents under seal without the permission of the Court. Should the parties seek to file documents under seal, they must follow and comply with the procedures set forth in this Court's Local Rule 79.7 ' p' - f.p
