Navarro WHEREAS, it is anticipated by and among counsel for Affinity Gaming (“Affinity”) and 13 counsel for Trustwave Holdings, Inc., (collectively, “Trustwave”), (together, the “Parties”), that, 14 during the course of this proceeding and/or appeals (this “Action”), the Parties and certain other 15 persons or entities (“non-Parties”) may disclose certain trade, financial, proprietary, business, 16 personal identifying, commercially sensitive business or technical information, competitive 17 information, or other confidential business information, the disclosure of which may be harmful 18 to the commercial and/or security interests of the designating Party or non-Party and that is 19 deserving of protection under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(c); and 20 WHEREAS, this Stipulated and Agreed Federal Rule of Evidence 502(d) Protective 21 Order Governing the Protection and Exchange of Confidential Discovery Material (the 22 “Protective Order”) is intended to protect the confidentiality of such information while ensuring 23 that the Parties can obtain and pursue discovery with a minimum of delay and expense, and that 24 the public interest in open access to court records is properly balanced with the rights of the 25 Parties and non-Parties in this Action to maintain the confidentiality of highly sensitive 26 confidential and/or proprietary information; 27 … 28 … Page 1 of 15 Dockets.Justia.com Case 2:15-cv-02464-GMN-PAL Document 34 Filed 03/31/16 Page 2 of 15 1 Accordingly, for good cause shown, pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(c) 2 and Federal Rule of Evidence 502(d), the following terms shall govern the handling of all 3 Confidential Material (as defined below) produced or generated in connection with this Action: PROTECTIVE ORDER 4 I. 5 PURPOSE Disclosure and discovery activity in this action are likely to involve production of 7 confidential, proprietary, or private information for which special protection from public 8 disclosure and from use for any purpose other than prosecuting this litigation may be warranted. 9 Moreover, the information likely to be the subject of the disclosure and discovery activity in this 10 action involves unique risks related to privacy, data security, data governance and data 11 management that will likely be greater than in most cases.

SCOPE above), but also (1) any information copied or extracted from Protected Material; (2) all hard and 9 electronic copies, excerpts, derivations, summaries, or compilations of Protected Material; and 10 (3) any testimony, conversations, or presentations by Parties or their Counsel that might reveal 11 Protected Material. However, the protections conferred by this Order do not cover the following 12 3883 Howard Hughes Parkway, Suite 790 Las Vegas, Nevada 89169 (702) 776-7000 FAX: (702) 776-7900 The protections conferred by this Order cover not only Protected Material (as defined 8 REID RUBINSTEIN & BOGATZ 7 information: (a) any information that is in the public domain at the time of disclosure to a 13 Receiving Party, excluding any information that came into the public domain as a result of a 14 violation of law or of this Order, or becomes part of the public domain after its disclosure to a 15 Receiving Party as a result of publication not involving a violation of this Order, including 16 becoming part of the public record through trial or otherwise, excluding any information that 17 came into the public domain as a result of a violation of law or of this Order; and (b) any 18 information known to the Receiving Party prior to the disclosure or obtained by the Receiving 19 Party after the disclosure from a source who obtained the information lawfully and under no 20 obligation of confidentiality to the Designating Party. Any use of Protected Material at trial shall 21 be governed by a separate agreement or order. 22 V. DURATION 23 Even after final disposition of this litigation, the obligations imposed by this Order shall 24 remain in effect until a Designating Party agrees otherwise in writing or a court order otherwise 25 directs. Final disposition shall be deemed to be the later of (1) dismissal of all claims and 26 defenses in this action, with or without prejudice; and (2) final judgment herein after the 27 completion and exhaustion of all appeals, rehearings, remands, trials, or reviews of this action, 28 Page 5 of 15 Case 2:15-cv-02464-GMN-PAL Document 34 Filed 03/31/16 Page 6 of 15 1 including the time limits for filing any motions or applications for extension of time pursuant to 2 applicable law. VI. 3 4 6.1 DESIGNATING PROTECTED MATERIAL Exercise of Care in Designating Material for Protection. Each Party or Non-Party 5 that designates information or items for protection under this Order must take care to limit any 6 such designation to specific material that qualifies under the appropriate standards. 7 6.2 Manner and Timing of Designations. Except as otherwise provided in this Order 8 (see, e.g., second paragraph of Section 6.2(a) below), or as otherwise stipulated or ordered, 9 Discovery Material that qualifies for protection under this Order must be clearly so designated 10 Designation in conformity with this Order requires: 12 3883 Howard Hughes Parkway, Suite 790 Las Vegas, Nevada 89169 (702) 776-7000 FAX: (702) 776-7900 REID RUBINSTEIN & BOGATZ 11 before the material is disclosed or produced. (a) for information in documentary form (e.g., paper or electronic documents, but 13 excluding transcripts of depositions or other pretrial or trial proceedings), that the 14 Producing Party affix the legend “CONFIDENTIAL” or “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – 15 ATTORNEYS’ EYES ONLY” to each page that contains protected material. 16 A Party or Non-Party that makes original documents or materials available for 17 inspection need not designate them for protection until after the inspecting Party has 18 indicated which material it would like copied and produced. During the inspection and 19 before the designation, all of the material made available for inspection shall be deemed 20 “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – ATTORNEYS’ EYES ONLY.” After the inspecting 21 Party has identified the documents it wants copied and produced, the Producing Party 22 must determine which documents, or portions thereof, qualify for protection under this 23 Order. Then, before producing the specified documents, the Producing Party must affix 24 the appropriate legend (“CONFIDENTIAL” or “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – 25 ATTORNEYS’ EYES ONLY”) to each page that contains Protected Material. 26 (b) for testimony given in deposition or in other pretrial or trial proceedings, that 27 the Designating Party either (i) identify on the record, before the close of the deposition, 28 hearing, or other proceeding, all protected testimony and specify the level of protection Page 6 of 15 Case 2:15-cv-02464-GMN-PAL Document 34 Filed 03/31/16 Page 7 of 15 thirty (30) days after receiving a copy of the transcript thereof, or at the time the errata 3 sheets for such transcripts are provided to the court reporter, whichever occurs earlier; 4 and in both of the foregoing instances, by directing the court reporter that an appropriate 5 confidential legend be affixed to the original and all copies of the transcript. Transcripts 6 containing Protected Material shall have an obvious legend on the title page that the 7 transcript contains Protected Material, and the title page shall be followed by a list of all 8 pages (including line numbers as appropriate) that have been designated as Protected 9 Material and the level of protection being asserted by the Designating Party. The 10 Designating Party shall inform the court reporter of these requirements. Any transcript 11 that is prepared before the expiration of a 30-day period for designation shall be treated 12 3883 Howard Hughes Parkway, Suite 790 Las Vegas, Nevada 89169 (702) 776-7000 FAX: (702) 776-7900 being asserted or (ii) by written notice, sent by Designating Party to all Parties within 2 REID RUBINSTEIN & BOGATZ 1 during that period as if it had been designated “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – 13 ATTORNEYS’ EYES ONLY” in its entirety unless otherwise agreed. After the 14 expiration of that period, the transcript shall be treated only as actually designated. 15 (c) for information produced in some form other than documentary and for any 16 other tangible items, that the Producing Party affix in a prominent place on the exterior 17 of the container or containers in which the information or item is stored the legend 18 “CONFIDENTIAL” or “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – ATTORNEYS’ EYES ONLY.” 19 6.3 Inadvertent Failures to Designate. If timely corrected, an inadvertent failure to 20 designate qualified information or items does not, standing alone, waive the Designating Party’s 21 right to secure protection under this Order for such material. Upon timely correction of a 22 designation, the Receiving Party must make reasonable efforts to assure that the material is 23 treated in accordance with the provisions of this Order. Correction will be considered timely if 24 made within fourteen (14) days of the Designating Party’s discovery of the inadvertent failure to 25 designate. VII. 26 27 28 7.1 CHALLENGING CONFIDENTIALITY DESIGNATIONS Timing of Challenges. Any Party or Non-Party may challenge a designation of confidentiality at any time. Unless a prompt challenge to a Designating Party’s confidentiality Page 7 of 15 Case 2:15-cv-02464-GMN-PAL Document 34 Filed 03/31/16 Page 8 of 15 1 designation is necessary to avoid foreseeable, substantial unfairness, unnecessary economic 2 burdens, or a significant disruption or delay of the litigation, a Party does not waive its right to 3 challenge a confidentiality designation by electing not to mount a challenge promptly after the 4 original designation is disclosed. 5 7.2 Meet and Confer. The Challenging Party shall initiate the dispute resolution for each challenge. To avoid ambiguity as to whether a challenge has been made, the written 8 notice must recite that the challenge to confidentiality is being made in accordance with this 9 specific paragraph of this Order. The Parties shall attempt to resolve each challenge in good faith 10 and must begin the process by conferring directly (in voice to voice dialogue; other forms of 11 communication are not sufficient) within 14 days of the date of service of notice. In conferring, 12 3883 Howard Hughes Parkway, Suite 790 Las Vegas, Nevada 89169 (702) 776-7000 FAX: (702) 776-7900 process by providing written notice of each designation it is challenging and describing the basis 7 REID RUBINSTEIN & BOGATZ 6 the Challenging Party must explain the basis for its belief that the confidentiality designation was 13 not proper and must give the Designating Party an opportunity to review the designated material, 14 to reconsider the circumstances, and, if no change in designation is offered, to explain the basis 15 for the chosen designation. A Challenging Party may proceed to the next stage of the challenge 16 process only if it has engaged in this meet and confer process first or establishes that the 17 Designating Party is unwilling to participate in the meet and confer process in a timely manner. 18 7.3 Judicial Intervention. If the Parties cannot resolve a challenge without court 19 intervention, the Challenging Party may file a motion challenging the designation or designations 20 within 14 days of the Parties agreeing that the meet and confer process will not resolve their 21 dispute, or 28 days following receipt of the written notice, whichever is earlier. The burden of 22 persuasion in any such challenge proceeding shall be on the Designating Party. The material in 23 question shall continue to be afforded the level of protection to which it is entitled under the 24 Producing Party’s designation until the court rules on the challenge. VIII. ACCESS TO AND USE OF PROTECTED MATERIAL 25 26 8.1 Basic Principles. A Receiving Party may use Protected Material that is disclosed 27 or produced by another Party or by a Non-Party in connection with this Action only for 28 prosecuting, defending, or attempting to settle this Action.

Such information produced by Non-Parties in connection with this Action is 10 protected by the remedies and relief provided by this Order. Nothing in these provisions should 11 be construed as prohibiting a Non-Party from seeking additional protections.

In the event that a party asserts 23 that it inadvertently failed to designate any Disclosure or Discovery Information as privileged or 24 work product materials, it shall promptly notify all Parties to whom such privileged material was 25 produced or disclosed of the Producing Party’s intent to assert a claim of privilege or work 26 product over such materials. Upon such notice: 27 28 a) If the Receiving Party intends to challenge the designation of the document(s) as privileged material, it shall promptly sequester all copies of the document(s), pending Court resolution of the challenge. Following notice by the Producing Party, the Page 11 of 15 Case 2:15-cv-02464-GMN-PAL Document 34 Filed 03/31/16 Page 12 of 15 1 2 3 4 Receiving Party (i) must not use or disclose the privileged material until the claim is resolved; and (ii) must take reasonable steps to retrieve the privileged material if the Party disclosed it before being notified. If the Receiving Party intends to challenge the designation of the document(s), it shall move the Court for relief within ten (10) business days following notification by the Producing Party. 7 b) If the Receiving Party does not intend to challenge the designation of the document(s) as privileged material, the Receiving Party shall (i) take reasonable steps to retrieve the privileged material if it disclosed or disseminated such information before being notified; and (ii) promptly return or certify destruction of the privileged material, including all copies. For purposes of this provision, return or certification of destruction of the material shall be considered prompt if it occurs within seven (7) days of notification. 8 11.2 5 6 Re-production of Electronic Media Containing Privileged Material.

Nothing in this Protective Order shall relieve counsel for the Receiving Party of any 15 existing duty or obligation to return, and not to review, any privileged or work product materials 16 without being requested by the Producing Party to do so. Rather, in the event a Receiving Party 17 becomes aware that it is in possession of what appears to be inadvertently produced privileged 18 material, then the Receiving Party shall immediately (i) cease any further review of that material; 19 and (ii) notify the Producing Party of the apparent inadvertent production, requesting whether the 20 Producing Party intended for the material to be produced. In the event the Producing Party 21 confirms the inadvertent production of the privileged material, the Receiving Party shall (i) take 22 reasonable steps to retrieve the privileged material from any persons to whom it disclosed or 23 distributed such material and (ii) promptly return or certify destruction of the privileged material, 24 including all copies. For purposes of this provision, return or certification of destruction of the 25 material shall be considered prompt if it occurs within seven (7) days of notification.
