STIPULATED PROTECTIVE ORDER

          Lyle E. Strom, Senior Judge.

         The Parties agree that during the course of discovery, it may be necessary to disclose certain confidential information relating to the subject matter of this action. They agree that certain categories of such information should be treated as confidential, protected from disclosure outside this litigation, and used only for purposes of prosecuting or defending this action and any appeals. The Parties jointly request entry of this Protective Order to limit the disclosure, dissemination, and use of certain identified categories of confidential information.

         Having considered the parties' proposed Stipulated Protective Order, and pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(c), IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the documents and information produced during the course of discovery herein shall be protected against inappropriate disclosure in accordance with the following terms and conditions:

         1. Scope of Order.

         This Order governs all Discovery Material (as defined below) designated as “Confidential” as provided herein and produced by a party to this action or any third party in response to any subpoena or discovery request in this action. Discovery Material includes but is not limited to (i) hard copy or electronic documents, communications, pictures, drawings, programs or data of any kind whether in writing or recorded or maintained on paper or by electronic, audio, visually or any other means produced by a party to this action or by a third party in response to a subpoena, (ii) responses to requests for production of documents, (iii) answers to requests for admission, (iv) answers to interrogatories, (v) deposition testimony transcripts or recordings, (vi) responses to subpoenas duces tecum, (vii) all information contained in those materials, and (viii) all copies, excerpts or summaries of those materials (“Discovery Material”).

         2. Designation of Written Discovery Material as Confidential.

         If a person, whether a party or third party, is required to provide Discovery Material that discloses confidential information, that person may designate the Discovery Material as Confidential (“Confidential Discovery Material”).

         Confidential Discovery Material shall be designated as “Confidential” by stamping or otherwise placing the legend “Confidential” on the Discovery Material in a manner that will not interfere with its legibility. The “Confidential” designation shall be made on electronic files in such a way as not to delete the metadata or to eliminate the word searchable functionality. If the Confidential Discovery Material cannot have the legend “Confidential” stamped or otherwise placed thereon, it will be designated “Confidential” in a written notice to all counsel of record or in any other manner deemed acceptable by the parties. Confidential Discovery Material designated as “Confidential” pursuant to this paragraph shall be subject to all of the provisions of this Order regarding “Confidential Discovery Material.”

         3. Designation of Deposition Testimony as Confidential.

         A non-party giving a deposition or a party may designate deposition testimony as “Confidential” pursuant to this Order by an appropriate indication on the record at the deposition, or by written notice of the specific pages and lines of testimony within twenty (20) days after designating counsel's receipt of the transcript of the deposition. If a deposition or any part thereof is designated “Confidential, ” each party shall attach a notice of confidentiality to all copies of the deposition within its possession, custody or control. Deposition testimony shall be treated as if it has been designated as Confidential pursuant to this Order for a period of twenty (20) days after receipt of a copy of the complete deposition transcript by a party to permit the party or testifying third party to review the transcript and designate the information disclosed therein as Confidential. Any deposition testimony that is designated as “Confidential” will be considered to be “Confidential Discovery Material” for the purpose of this Order and will be treated in the same manner as “Confidential Discovery Material” and will be subject to all of the provisions of this Order regarding “Confidential Discovery Material.”
