         STIPULATION

         The City of Everett Police Department currently has custody of all remaining physical evidence related to the incident at issue in this action. Plaintiff has requested her forensic expert, Mr. Kay Sweeney, be allowed to examine the evidence at his place of business. This stipulation is intended to provide Mr. Sweeney the opportunity to examine and analyze the evidence, while protecting the physical and evidentiary integrity of that evidence.

         Based on the above, THE FOLLOWING IS HEREBY STIPULATED AND AGREED by and between all parties in this matter:

         1. The evidence will be made available for Kay Sweeney to pick up at the Everett Police Department. Mr. Sweeney shall contact Captain Lineberry (or appointed designee representing Captain Lineberry) at the Everett Police Department to coordinate a mutually convenient date and time for the transfer of evidence. The evidence shall be made available within 5 business days of the date of entry of this order.

         2. Mr. Sweeney shall personally sign for receipt of each piece of evidence removed from the Everett Police Department.

         3. Mr. Sweeney shall return each and every piece of evidence to Captain Lineberry (or appointed designee representing Captain Lineberry) at the Everett Police Department no later than 60 calendar days from when they were picked up by Mr. Sweeney.

         4. Forensically accepted procedures to repackage and reseal each item of evidence shall be used in order to maintain the protection and retention of everything contained within the original packaging. When opening any package, the original seals should be preserved. If the original seals must be broken to access the contents of the package, the seals should be cut and not obliterated in a manner so as to maintain identification marking on the original seal. The original packaging and labeling from the Everett Police Department shall be included with each repackaged item of evidence, and the item number shall be included on the exterior of each package.

         5. Mr. Sweeney shall keep all of the evidence in his personal possession, or in his locked evidence vault, for the entire time the items are in his possession. Mr. Sweeney shall keep a log of all individuals who view or examine the evidence in its unpackaged state. The log shall be signed by Mr. Sweeney, and submitted to the Everett Police Department at the time the evidence is returned. Plaintiff shall also provide a copy of this log to Defendants.

         6. All persons who view or examine the evidence shall wear latex or Nitrile gloves when examining the evidence.

         7. Unless stated in this order, agreed to in advance in writing or otherwise ordered by the Court, the evidence shall not be altered, diminished, tampered with or in any way changed from its original condition and shall be returned in precisely the same condition and packaging in which it was received.

         8. In examining/analyzing the evidence, Mr. Sweeney shall adhere to all accepted standards of laboratories and forensic scientists accredited by the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory ...
