UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF MASSACHUSETTS
STANDING ORDER RE: DEFAULT PROTECTIVE ORDER
IN COMPLEX CASES FILED BEFORE STEARNS, D.J.
June 1, 2017
In complex (such as patent, trade secret, securities fraud) cases where
the parties reasonably believe a protective order is necessary to preserve the
confidentiality of documents and information produced in discovery, until
such a time that the parties propose and the court adopts a stipulated
protective order (or present competing proposals for the court’s decision),
the court will impose the following the default protective order.
Documents and information that either party in good faith believes is
confidential may be produced in discovery with the designation
“Confidential Pursuant to the Court’s Default PO,” and until such a time the
designation is altered or removed by the parties’ agreement or by court order,
a so-designated document may only be accessed by the parties’ outside
counsel and the court and their personnel.
