The parties in this case are engaged in a discovery dispute concerning the production of documents and other materials containing confidential and proprietary information.

Currently pending are Plaintiff's Motion for Protective Order (Filing No. 56), Motion to Compel Discovery (Filing No. 69), and Motion for Sanctions (Filing No. 75).
