FREDERICK HEATHER and DAWN WASELL-HEATHER, Plaintiff,

          COLE | WATHEN | LEID | HALL, P.C. Rory W. Leid, III, WSBA #25075 Galen L. Ryan, WSBA #46737 Attorneys for Defendant Allstate.

          ORDER

          JOHN C. COUGHENOUR, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE.

         This matter comes before the Court on the parties' stipulated motion for protective order regarding Allstate's production of corporate documents (Dkt. No. 29). The Court ENTERS the following:

         Discovery in this action is likely to involve production of confidential, proprietary, or private information for which special protection may be warranted.

         3. Filing Confidential Information with the Court

         Before filing confidential material or discussing or referencing such material in court filings, the filing party shall confer with the designating party to determine whether the designating party will remove the confidential designation, whether the document can be redacted, or whether a motion to seal or stipulation and proposed order is warranted. Local Civil Rule 5(g) sets forth the procedures that must be followed and the standards that will be applied when a party seeks permission from the Court to file material under seal.

         4. Persons Bound by This Order

         The persons bound by this order are:

a. All present parties to this proceeding; and
b. The employees, agents, and attorneys of both parties, including experts and consultants.
