Failing such agreement, the moving party shall serve its papers on the Supplier and shall file a notice of service with the Court. The Supplier shall then have three (3) Court days in which to either consent to the request to file said information in the public file or to seek leave of Court pursuant to Local Rule 7.2 to file such papers under seal; and the filing party agrees not to oppose said motion.

This Protective Order does not affect the right of any party or non-party to refuse to disclose information properly subject to the attorney-client privilege or the attorney work product doctrine. To that end, each party or non-party may produce its documents in redacted form, redacting only information which is irrelevant or is subject to a claim of attorney-client privilege or work-product immunity. The party or non-party so producing a document in redacted form shall make the notation "REDACTED" (or comparable notice) on each redacted portion of the document. In addition, each "REDACTED" (or comparable) notation must include a separate notation identifying the basis for that redaction (i.e., privilege or relevance). Receiving counsel shall not have the right to custody of the original un-redacted documents or a copy thereof. In the event of disagreement, receiving counsel shall identify those redacted areas of the documents which should not be redacted and shall state why such areas should not be redacted. In the event the producing party or non-party continues to refuse to produce the document(s) in unredacted form, counsel of the receiving party may seek a determination by the Court that such documents or portions thereof should be produced in unredacted form.

If a party or non-party inadvertently produces or discloses information that is subject to attorney-client privilege and/or attorney-work product immunity, or other applicable privilege, it may request in writing within ten business (10) days of learning of such inadvertent production or disclosure that the information inadvertently produced or disclosed be returned or destroyed. Such inadvertent production shall not constitute or be construed as a waiver of any applicable privilege either to the information or subject matter of the disclosure. The request must state the nature of the privilege and/or immunity claimed for the inadvertently produced or disclosed information. Upon receipt of such request, the party or non-party in receipt of such information shall in good faith attempt to retrieve all copies of such information and shall return or destroy the information (and shall to the extent possible destroy any notes relating to the information subject to the request). No party or non-party that received the inadvertently produced or disclosed information under the provisions of this Order may argue that the privilege or immunity has been waived as a result of the inadvertent production or disclosure, nor may that party use any information contained in or obtained from such inadvertent production in this action or for any purpose. If the receiving party or non-party wishes to challenge the propriety of the claim of privilege or immunity, it may do so only after first fully complying with the requirements of this paragraph. 19. Nothing in this Order shall be deemed to place any restrictions on any party, non- party or its attorneys with respect to access and use and disposition of a party's own Highly Confidential or Confidential business information, nor abridge the right of any person to seek judicial review or to pursue other appropriate judicial action with respect to any ruling made by the Court concerning the issue of the status of Discovery Material designated as Highly Confidential or Confidential Material.

If destroyed rather than returned, the party destroying shall so verify in writing. Receipt of material returned to the Supplier shall be acknowledged in writing. 21.
