Good cause exists 17 to grant the parties' request for a Protective Order to (1) preserve the privacy interests of third- 18 party borrowers; (2) protect the confidential business records and proprietary information of the 19 plaintiff and defendant; and (3) allow the parties to exchange information in the most expeditious 20 fashion possible, with a minimum burden, expense, dispute, and delay. Pursuant to 15 U.S.C. § 21 6802(e)(8), the production of non-public personal financial information, protected by the 22 measures set out in this Protective Order, shall not constitute a violation of the Gramm-Leach- 23 Bliley Act, 15 U.S.C. § 6801, et seq.; Marks v. Global Mortgage Group, Inc., 218 F.R.D. 492, 24 496 (S.D.

Final disposition shall be deemed to be the later of (1) dismissal of all 3 claims and defenses in this action, with or without prejudice; and (2) final judgment herein after 4 the completion and exhaustion of all appeals, rehearings, remands, trials, or reviews of this 5 action, including the time limits for filing any motions or applications for extension of time 6 pursuant to applicable law. 7 IV 8 DESIGNATING PROTECTED MATERIAL 9 A. Exercise of Restraint and Care in Designating Material for Protection. Each Party KOLESAR & LEATHAM or Non-Party that designated information or items for protection under this Order must take care 11 400 South Rampart Boulevard, Suite 400 Las Vegas, Nevada 89145 Tel: (702) 362-7800 / Fax: (702) 362-9472 10 to limit any such designation to specific material that qualifies under the appropriate standards. 12 The Designating Party must designate for protection only those parts of material, documents, 13 items, or oral or written communications that qualify – so that other portions of the material, 14 documents, items, or communications for which protection is not warranted are not swept 15 unjustifiably within the ambit of this Order. 16 Mass, indiscriminate, or routinized designations are prohibited. Designations that are 17 shown to be clearly unjustified or that have been made for an improper purpose (e.g., to 18 unnecessarily encumber or retard the case development process or to impose unnecessary 19 expenses and burdens on other parties) expose the Designating Party to sanctions. 20 If it comes to a Designating Party’s attention that information or items that it designated 21 for protection do not qualify for protection, that Designating Party must promptly notify all other 22 Parties that it is withdrawing the mistaken designation. 23 B. Manner and Timing of Designations: Except as otherwise provided in this Order 24 (see, e.g., second paragraph of Section V(B), below), or as otherwise stipulated or ordered, 25 Disclosure or Discovery Material that qualifies for protection under this Order must be clearly so 26 designated before the material is disclosed or produced. 27 Designation in conformity with this Order requires: 28 Page 6 of 14 1347801 (8408-2) Case 2:12-cv-02057-JCM-NJK Document 17 Filed 03/13/13 Page 6 of 14 1 1. For information in documentary form (e.g., paper or electronic documents, 2 but excluding transcripts of depositions or other pretrial or trial proceedings), that the Producing 3 Party affix the legend “CONFIDENTIAL” to each page that contains protected material. If only 4 a portion or portions of the material on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing Party also 5 must clearly identify the protected portions (e.g., by making appropriate markings in the 6 margins). 7 A Party or Non-Party that makes original documents or materials available for 8 inspection need not designate them for protection until after the inspecting Party has indicated 9 which material it would like copied and produced. During the inspection and before the KOLESAR & LEATHAM designation, all of the material made available for inspection shall be deemed 11 400 South Rampart Boulevard, Suite 400 Las Vegas, Nevada 89145 Tel: (702) 362-7800 / Fax: (702) 362-9472 10 “CONFIDENTIAL.” After the inspecting Party has identified the documents it wants copied and 12 produced, the Producing Party must determine which documents, or portions thereof, qualify for 13 protection under this Order. Then, before producing the specified documents, the Producing 14 Party must affix the “CONFIDENTIAL” legend to each page that contains Protected Material. If 15 only a portion or portions of the material on a page qualifies for protection, the Producing Party 16 also must clearly identify the protection portions (e.g., by making appropriate markings in the 17 margins). 18 2. For testimony given in deposition proceedings, that the Designating Party 19 identify on the record, before the close of the deposition, hearing, or other proceedings, all 20 protected testimony. This provision does not apply to any court hearings or trial testimony. 21 3. For information produced in some form other than documentary and for 22 any other tangible items, that the Producing Party affix in a prominent place on the exterior of 23 the container or containers in which the information or item is stored the legend 24 “CONFIDENTIAL.” If only a portion or portions of the information or item warrant protection, 25 the Producing Party, to the extent practicable, shall identify the protected portion(s). 26 27 C. Inadvertent failure to Designate. If timely corrected, an inadvertent failure to designate qualified information or items does not, standing alone, waive the Designating Party’s 28 Page 7 of 14 1347801 (8408-2) Case 2:12-cv-02057-JCM-NJK Document 17 Filed 03/13/13 Page 7 of 14 1 right to secure protection under this Order for such material. Upon timely correction of a 2 designation, the Receiving Party must make reasonable efforts to assure that the material is 3 treated in accordance with the provisions of this Order. 4 V 5 CHALLENGING CONFIDENTIALITY DESIGNATIONS 6 A. Timing of Challenges. Any Party or Non-Party may challenge a designation of designation is necessary to avoid foreseeable, substantial unfairness, unnecessary economic 9 burdens, or a significant disruption or delay of the litigation, a Party does not waive its right to 10 challenge a confidentiality designation by electing not to mount a challenge promptly after the 11 KOLESAR & LEATHAM confidentiality at any time. Unless a prompt challenge to a Designating Party’s confidentiality 8 400 South Rampart Boulevard, Suite 400 Las Vegas, Nevada 89145 Tel: (702) 362-7800 / Fax: (702) 362-9472 7 original designation is disclosed. 12 B. Meet and Confer. The Challenging Party shall initiate the dispute resolution 13 process by providing written notice of each designation it is challenging and describing the basis 14 for each challenge. To avoid ambiguity as to whether a challenge has been made, the written 15 notice must recite that the challenge to confidentiality is being made in accordance with this 16 specific paragraph of the Protective Order. The parties shall attempt to resolve each challenge in 17 good faith and must begin the process by conferring directly (in voice to voice dialogue; other 18 forms of communication are not sufficient) within 14 days of the date of service of the notice. In 19 conferring, the Challenging Party must explain the basis for its belief that the confidentiality 20 designation is not proper and must give the Designating Party an opportunity to review the 21 designated material, to reconsider the circumstances, and, if no change in designation is offered, 22 to explain the basis for the chosen designation. A Challenging Party may proceed to the next 23 stage of the challenge process only if it has engaged in this meet and confer process first or 24 establishes that the Designating Party is unwilling to participate in the meet and confer process in 25 a timely manner. 26 C. 27 Judicial Intervention. If the Parties cannot resolve a challenge without court intervention, the Designating Party shall file and serve a motion to retain confidentiality in 28 Page 8 of 14 1347801 (8408-2) Case 2:12-cv-02057-JCM-NJK Document 17 Filed 03/13/13 Page 8 of 14 days of the parties agreeing that the meet and confer process will not resolve their dispute, 3 whichever is earlier. Each such motion must be accompanied by a competent declaration 4 affirming that the movant has complied with the meet and confer requirements imposed in the 5 preceding paragraph. Failure by the Designating Party to make such a motion including the 6 required declaration within 21 days (or 14 days, if applicable) shall automatically waive the 7 confidentiality designation for each challenged designation. In addition, the Challenging Party 8 may file a motion challenging a confidentiality designation at any time if there is good cause for 9 doing so, including a challenge to the designation of a deposition transcript or any portions 10 thereof. Any motion brought pursuant to this provision must be accompanied by a competent 11 KOLESAR & LEATHAM accordance with Local Rule 7.1 within 21 days of the initial notice of challenge or within 14 2 400 South Rampart Boulevard, Suite 400 Las Vegas, Nevada 89145 Tel: (702) 362-7800 / Fax: (702) 362-9472 1 declaration affirming that the movant has complied with the meet and confer requirements 12 imposed by the preceding paragraph. 13 The burden of persuasion in any such challenge proceeding shall be on the Designating 14 Party. Frivolous challenges, and those made for an improper purpose (e.g., to harass or impose 15 unnecessary expenses and burdens on other parties) may expose the Challenging Party to 16 sanctions. Unless the Designating Party has waived the confidentiality designation by failing to 17 file a motion to retain confidentiality as described above, all parties shall continue to afford the 18 material in question the level of protection to which it is entitled under the Producing Party’s 19 designation until the Court rules on the challenge. 20 VI 21 ACCESS TO AND USE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 22 A. Basic Principles. A Receiving Party may use Protected Material that is disclosed 23 or produced by another Party or by a Non-Party in connection with this case only for 24 prosecuting, defending, or attempting to settle this litigation.

The Designating Party 19 shall bear the burden and expense of seeking protection in that court of its confidential material 20 and nothing in these provisions should be construed as authorizing or encouraging a Receiving 21 Party in this action to disobey a lawful directive from another court. 22 VIII 23 UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 24 If a Receiving Party learns that, by inadvertence or otherwise, it has disclosed Protected 25 Material to any person or in any circumstance not authorized under this Stipulated Protective 26 Order, the Receiving Party must immediately (a) notify in writing the Designating Party of the 27 unauthorized disclosures, (b) use its best efforts to retrieve all unauthorized copies of the 28 Page 11 of 14 1347801 (8408-2) Case 2:12-cv-02057-JCM-NJK Document 17 Filed 03/13/13 Page 11 of 14 1 Protected Material, (c) inform the person or persons to whom unauthorized disclosures were 2 made of all the terms of this Order, and (d) request such person or persons to execute the 3 “Acknowledgement and Agreement to Be Bound” that is attached hereto as Exhibit A. 4 IX 5 INADVERTENT PRODUCTION OF PRIVILEGED OR OTHERWISE PROTECTED MATERIAL 6 When a Producing Party gives notice to Receiving Parties that certain inadvertently 7 produced material is subject to a claim of privilege or other protection, the obligations of the 8 Receiving Parties are those set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(b)(5)(B).

Right to Further Relief. Nothing in this Order abridges the right of any person to 17 seek its modification by the court in the future. 18 B. Right to Assert Other Objections. By stipulating to the entry of this Protective 19 Order, no Party waives any right it otherwise would have to object to disclosing or producing 20 any information or item on any ground not addressed in this Stipulated Protective Order. 21 Similarly, no Party waives any right to object on any ground to use in evidence any of the 22 material covered by this Stipulated Protective Order. 23 C.
