         Discovery in this action is likely to involve confidential, proprietary, or private information requiring special protection from public disclosure and from use for any purpose other than this litigation. Thus, the Court enters this Protective Order. This Order does not confer blanket protections on all disclosures or responses to discovery, and the protection it gives from public disclosure and use extends only to the specific material entitled to confidential treatment under the applicable legal principles. This Order does not automatically authorize the filing under seal of material designated under this Order. Instead, the parties must comply with L.R. 79-5.1 if they seek to file anything under seal. This Order does not govern the use at trial of material designated under this Order.


         2.1 Over-Designation Prohibited.

         Any party or non-party who designates information or items for protection under this Order as “CONFIDENTIAL” (a “designator”) must only designate specific material that qualifies under the appropriate standards. To the extent practicable, only those parts of documents, items, or oral or written communications that require protection shall be designated. Mass, indiscriminate, or routinized designations are prohibited. Unjustified designations expose the designator to sanctions, including the Court's striking all confidentiality designations made by that designator. Designation under this Order is allowed only if the designation is reasonably necessary to protect information (regardless of how generated, stored, or maintained) or tangible things that constitute or reveal any confidential, proprietary, trade secret, and/or private information and that qualifies for protection under standards developed under applicable law. Material may not be designated if it has been made public. If a designator learns that information or items that it designated for protection do not qualify for protection at all or do not qualify for the level of protection initially asserted, that designator must promptly notify all parties that it is withdrawing the mistaken designation.

         2.2 Manner and Timing of Designations.

         Designation under this Order requires the designator to affix the applicable legend (“CONFIDENTIAL”) to each page that contains protected material. For testimony given in deposition or other proceeding, the designator shall specify all protected testimony. It may make that designation during the deposition or proceeding, or may invoke, on the record or by written notice to all parties on or before the expiration of the third business day following completion of the applicable deposition or proceeding, a right to have up to 21 days from the deposition or proceeding to make its designation.

         2.2.1 A party or non-party that makes original documents or materials available for inspection need not designate them for protection until after the inspecting party has identified which material it would like copied and produced. During the inspection and before the designation, all material shall be treated as “CONFIDENTIAL.” After the inspecting party has identified the documents it wants copied and produced, the producing party must designate the documents, or portions thereof, that qualify for protection under this Order.

         2.2.2 Parties shall give advance notice if they expect a deposition or other proceeding to include designated material so that the other parties can ensure that only authorized individuals are present at those proceedings when such material is disclosed or used. The use of a document as an exhibit at a deposition shall not in any way affect its designation. Transcripts containing designated material shall have a legend on the title page noting the presence of designated material, and the title page shall be followed by a list of all pages (including line numbers as appropriate) that have been designated, and the level of protection being asserted. The designator shall inform the court reporter of these requirements. Any transcript that is prepared before the expiration of the 21-day period for designation shall be treated during that period as if it had been designated “CONFIDENTIAL” unless otherwise agreed. After the expiration of the 21-day period, the transcript shall be treated only as actually designated.

         2.3 Inadvertent Failures to Designate.

         An inadvertent failure to designate does not, standing alone, waive protection under this Order. Upon timely assertion or correction of a designation, all recipients must make reasonable efforts to ensure that the material is treated according to this Order. If material is designated as “Confidential” after the material was initially produced, the receiving party, upon notification by the designator, shall immediately treat the material as fully subject to this Order as if it had been initially so designated and shall make reasonable and good faith efforts to assure that the material, including, but not limited to, any analyses, memoranda, or notes which were internally generated based upon such material, is treated in accordance with the provisions of this Order; provided, however, that the receiving party shall not incur liability for any previous treatment of such information in conformance with its original designation or lack thereof.
