Case No. 2:14-cv-000683-RFB-VCF STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER 12 CRYSTAL EWING, et al. 13 Defendants. 14 15 16 The Court enters this protective order pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(c). 17 1. 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 An attorney or party appearing pro se marking material as “Confidential Material” certifies in good faith: first, that it contains (a) sensitive personal information; (b) sensitive consumer information; or (c) trade secret(s) or other confidential research, development, or commercial information; and second, after careful determination, that the material is not reasonably believed to be already in the public domain or otherwise publicly available. 2. Notwithstanding any designation to the contrary, no materials that are otherwise available to the public shall be treated as “Confidential.” 3. “Sensitive Personal Information” means any (a) Social Security number; (b) sensitive health-related data including medical records; (c) biometric identifier; or (d) any one or more of the following when combined with an individual’s name, address, or phone number: (i) Case 2:14-cv-00683-RFB-VCF Document 51 Filed 10/27/14 Page 3 of 8 1 date of birth, (ii) driver’s license or other state identification number, or a foreign equivalent, (iii) 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 military identification number, (iv) passport number, (v) financial institution account number, (vi) credit or debit card number; or (e) other sensitive information relating to an individual entitled to confidential status under applicable law, by order of this Court, or by agreement of the parties. 4. “Sensitive Consumer Information” means any consumer’s (a) address; (b) phone number; (c) financial institution account number; or (d) credit or debit card number, whether in isolation, in combination with one another, or in combination with a consumer’s name. 5. All Confidential Material produced or exchanged in the course of this litigation shall be used for the purpose of preparation and trial of this litigation, or any appeal therefrom, and for no other purpose whatsoever, and shall not be disclosed to any person except in accordance with the terms hereof. Provided, however, that nothing in this Protective Order shall impose any restrictions on the use or disclosure by the FTC, including its employees, agents, attorneys, and all other parties acting on its behalf, of confidential materials as provided by: (1) the FTC’s Rules of Practice and any cases construing them; (2) Sections 6(f) and 21 of the Federal Trade Commission Act and any cases construing them; and (3) any other legal obligation imposed upon the FTC. 6. Confidential Material must be designated as follows: (a) Mark paper materials “CONFIDENTIAL-[DESIGNATING PARTY 20 NAME].” If paper material is only confidential in part, mark only the portions of the material 21 that are confidential. 22 (b) Mark electronic materials “CONFIDENTIAL-[DESIGNATING PARTY 23 NAME]” by marking each electronic page or subpart that is confidential. If the electronic 24 material cannot be marked by page or subpart, the designee shall meet and confer with the 25 recipient to determine a means to delineate the confidential material. Also mark the electronic 26 storage medium, as well as any electronic file and folder name “CONFIDENTIAL.” 27 28 Case 2:14-cv-00683-RFB-VCF Document 51 Filed 10/27/14 Page 4 of 8 1 (c) 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 of receipt of the final transcript by identifying the specific page(s) and line number(s) that are confidential and notifying all parties of same. If testimony is identified as confidential during a deposition, absent agreement on the scope of confidentiality, the entire transcript shall be treated as confidential until the time for designation expires. The 10-day period for designation may be extended by agreement of the parties. Upon being informed that certain portions of a deposition are to be designated as Confidential, all parties shall immediately cause each copy of the transcript in its custody or control to be appropriately marked and limit disclosure of the transcript in accordance with this Order. 7. 11 16 (c) 21 experts, vendors, and contractors consulted or retained by the parties or counsel, and their employees, provided that they agree in writing to abide by this protective order or execute FTC Form X33-Nondisclosure Agreement for Contractors; (d) any person who had prior access to the Confidential Material or participated in a communication that is the subject of the Confidential Material; 19 20 the parties’ outside counsel and their employees only to the extent necessary to assist in the litigation; 17 18 the Court and court personnel; (b) 14 15 Confidential Material may only be disclosed to: (a) 12 13 Designate deposition transcripts as Confidential Material within 10 days (e) witnesses, including deponents, and their counsel, provided that they agree in writing to abide by this protective order. 8. An inadvertent failure to mark Confidential Material prior to disclosure does not 22 preclude a subsequent designation, but no prior disclosure of newly designated Confidential 23 Material by a recipient shall violate this Order. 24 9. Confidential Material shall only be filed either: (a) redacted through the Court’s 25 ECF system; or (b) with a motion to seal the material, unless the party introducing the material 26 provides the designee notice of its intention to publicly file the material at least 14 days in 27 advance of filing to provide an opportunity for the designee to seek further protection from the 28 Case 2:14-cv-00683-RFB-VCF Document 51 Filed 10/27/14 Page 5 of 8 1 Court. If the designee seeks protection within the 14 days, the materials may only be filed with a 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 motion to seal until the Court has ruled on the designee’s request; provided, however, that the parties shall comply in all regards with Fed. R. Civ. P. 5-2 and Local Rule 10-5. 10. At the conclusion of this case, any consultant or other person retained to assist counsel in the preparation of this action shall destroy or return all Confidential Materials and any other materials containing confidential information. All Confidential Materials held by the parties shall be destroyed or returned to the designee, except that the FTC shall retain, return, or destroy Confidential Materials in accordance with Rule 4.12 of the FTC’s Rules of Practice. 11. This Order shall not deprive any party of its right to object to discovery by any other party or on any otherwise permitted ground. This Order is being entered without prejudice to the right of any party to move the Court for modification or for relief from any of its terms. 12. This Order continues to govern Confidential Information after conclusion of the case absent further order of the Court. 14 SO STIPULATED: 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 /s/ Elsie B.
