Stmt., Exhibit C). The documents SHALL BE SUBMITTED in a sealed envelope marked with the name and number of the case and clearly marked as privileged and confidential material. The documents SHALL BE SUBMITTED directly to the chambers of the undersigned Magistrate Judge. The envelope of documents SHALL CONTAIN a complete listing or itemization of the documents indicating, with reference to the operative arguments of the parties, the category of documents to which each document or group thereof belongs as well as the document's location in the privilege log. The documents shall remain in chambers in the possession of the Court until all the proceedings concerning the motion are concluded or until further order of the Court.
The parties shall file with the Court a pleading indicating that documents in connection with the Plaintiffs' pending motion to compel (Doc. 104) and the pending motion of Defendant Downey Brand LLP for a protective order (Doc. 106) have been or are being submitted to the chambers of Magistrate Judge Sandra M. Snyder directly for the Court's in camera review pursuant to the parties' agreement reached in the telephonic status conference of September 10, 2009.
In view of the necessity of arranging for in camera review, the hearing on the motions to compel and for a protective order (Docs. 104 and 106) presently set for September 4, 2009, IS CONTINUED to October 9, 2009, at 9:30 a.m., in Courtroom 7, before the undersigned Magistrate Judge.
