Boddy v. Pourciau

United States District Court, W.D. Washington, Seattle

May 2, 2019

KYLE BODDY et al., Plaintiffs,
v.
BRENT POURCIAU et al. Defendants.

          STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER

          James L. Robart, United States District Court Judge.

         1. PURPOSES AND LIMITATIONS

         Discovery in this action is likely to involve production of confidential, proprietary, or private information for which special protection may be warranted. Accordingly, the parties hereby stipulate to and petition the court to enter the following Stipulated Protective Order. The parties acknowledge that this agreement is consistent with LCR 26(c). It does not confer blanket protection on all disclosures or respohses to discovery, the protection it affords from public disclosure and use extends only to the limited information or items that are entitled to confidential treatment under the applicable legal principles, and it does not presumptively entitle parties to file confidential information under seal.

         2. "CONFIDENTIAL" MATERIAL

         "Confidential" material shall include the following documents and tangible things produced or otherwise exchanged: sensitive, non-public, financial information, proprietary competitive information, including but not limited to non-public financial and marketing analyses, comparisons of competitor's products or services, and product/service expansion plans; and proprietary financial information, including but not limited to customer and pricing lists, non-public balance sheets, income statements, financial reports, or any other information the disclosure of which to non-parties would create a substantial risk of economic harm or competitive disadvantage to the producing party. Such information includes documents, information, or material that contains trade secrets, proprietary financial or technical or commercially-sensitive competitive information, including but not limited to strategic plans, technical documents that would reveal trade secrets, or a third-party document to whom the party reasonably believes it owes an obligation of confidentiality with respect to such documents.

         3. SCOPE

         The protections conferred by this agreement cover not only confidential material (as defined above), but also (1) any information copied or extracted from confidential material; (2) all copies, excerpts, summaries, or compilations of confidential material; and (3) any testimony, conversations, or presentations by parties or their counsel that might reveal confidential material.

         However, the protections conferred by this agreement do not cover information that is in the public domain or becomes part of the public domain through trial or otherwise.

         4. ACCESS TO AND USE OF CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL

         4.1 Basic Principles. A receiving party may use confidential material that is disclosed or produced by another party or by a non-party in connection with this case only for prosecuting, defending, or attempting to settle this litigation. Confidential material may be disclosed only to the categories of persons and under the conditions described in this agreement. Confidential material must be stored and maintained by a receiving party at a location and in a secure manner that ensures that access is limited to the persons authorized under this agreement.

         4.2 Disclosure of "CONFIDENTIAL" Information or Items. Unless otherwise ordered by the court or permitted in writing by the designating party, a receiving party may disclose any confidential material only to:

(a) the receiving party's counsel of record in this action, as well as employees of counsel to whom it is reasonably necessary to disclose the information for this litigation;
(b) the officers, directors, and employees (including in house counsel) of the receiving party to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this litigation, unless the parties agree that a particular document or material produced is for Attorney's Eyes Only and is so designated;
(c) experts and consultants to whom disclosure is reasonably necessary for this litigation and who have signed the "Acknowledgment and Agreement to ...
