THIS COURT FURTHER FINDS that the following materials contain information regarding and garnered from documents and or deposition transcripts which have been designated as “Confidential” or “Highly Confidential Outside Attorneys’ Eyes Only” or would - be considered to fall under one of these designations by the parties in this case pursuant to the Discovery Confidentiality Order entered in Civil Action No. 10-02734 or contain information that is of such a highly sensitive nature that it is not appropriate for public disclosure. Redactions are sought for this document: • the Transcript of Proceedings held on February 25, 2015, before Judge Claire C. Cecchi. THE COURT FURTHER FINDS that this is a patent action that involves confidential information and, specifically, the transcript listed above contains confidential information regarding business strategies, trade secrets or other confidential research, development, formulation, manufacturing, regulatory, financial, marketing, commercial or competitive information or analysis of the producing party, or of a third party if such material is or was within the possession, custody, or control of the producing party, that each party has a legitimate interest in protecting as confidential and that competitors in the marketplace could utilize to gain an unfair competitive advantage to their detriment. THE COURT FURTHER FINDS that the interests of the public that warrant granting an Order for Redaction of a Transcript include the interest of not burdening litigants’ access to the Court by requiring public disclosure of valuable confidential information as a condition of litigating their rights. THE COURT FURTHER FINDS that the clearly defined and serious injury that would result should the Order for Redaction of a Transcript not be granted is that valuable business and trade secrets created at substantial expense by the parties will be lost and competitors would unjustly gain access to them. Specifically, the parties’ confidential research information would be revealed to their competitors and these competitors would unjustly gain the ability to thwart, anticipate or usurp those plans and strategies to the competitors’ advantage and the parties’ loss. THE COURT FURTHER FINDS that no less restrictive alternative is available to prevent the defined and serious injury to the parties. THE COURT FURTHER FINDS that Defendants have complied with the dictates set forth in Local Civil Rule 5 .3(c)(2) and in case law related thereto. 2 THEREFORF for good cause shown, based on the Discovery Confidentiality Order and in order to preserve the confidentiality of the aforementioned transcript; IT IS ORDERED that the following portions of the Transcript of Proceedings held on february 25, 2015, before Judge Claire C.
