         After conferring with counsel:

         2) If either party believes the court should resolve the dispute over paragraph 17 by formal motion, such motion shall be filed on or before July 1, 2016, with any response due on or before July 5, 2016. No reply shall be filed absent leave of the court for good cause shown.

         3) Absent the filing a formal motion by July 1, 2016, or the parties' notice before July 1, 2016 that they now agree that the proposed protective order, with Defendant's proposed language, may be entered, the court will enter a protective order as set forth in the attached copy.

         (Draft) PROTECTIVEORDER

         The parties agree that certain information subject to discovery in this action may contain trade secrets or other confidential, proprietary or commercially-sensitive information. In the interest of protecting that information and permitting discovery to proceed without the delay occasioned by disputes regarding such information, the parties agree to the protective provisions set forth below.

         2. Protected Material may be designated by any Producing Party as:
