MELTON PROPERTIES, LLC; FLOYD M. MELTON, JR.; FLOYD M. MELTON III; MOSS B. MELTON; MCMILLAN ACRES; DANNY HARGETT; JANE HART MCMILLAN HARGETT; DAVID HARGETT PLAINTIFFS
v.
ILLINOIS CENTRAL RAILROAD COMPANY; CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAY; UNION TANK CAR COMPANY, INC.; JOHN DOES 1-5 DEFENDANTS

          AGREED PROTECTIVE ORDER

          Jane M. Virden, U.S. Magistrate-Judge

         The Court, being advised that all parties to this action consent to maintaining the confidentiality of certain documents and information, orders as follows:

         1. Any files or documents containing information regarding personnel, customers, financial data, or other private, confidential or proprietary information shall be considered “Confidential Information.” This Order shall govern all Confidential Information which is produced by the parties or a testifying witness during the course of this litigation.

         2. This Order shall apply both to the parties to this action and to any third party who provides or is provided access to discovery materials under the terms of this Order.

         3. Except with prior written consent of the party who or which has designated documents or information as “Confidential Information, ” (hereafter “designating party”) or upon prior order of this Court, a receiving party shall not disclose or use Confidential Information obtained during discovery for any purpose (including without limitation, any business, commercial or personal purpose) other than for the purposes of preparing for and conducting the litigation of this action and any appellate proceedings in this action.

         4. All Confidential Information shall be clearly and prominently marked by placing on every single-page document, on the initial page or cover of a multi-page document (including deposition transcripts), and in prominent location on the exterior of any tangible object, one of the following designations (or a designation containing the same information but in a different format):

i. “CONFIDENTIAL”; OR
ii. “CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION - THIS DOCUMENT IS SUBJECT TO A PROTECTIVE ORDER”; OR
iii. By affixing a “C” prior to the document number. In lieu of marking the original of documents, the designating party may mark the copies that are produced or exchanged.

         5. If a party intends to use Confidential Information in any Court filing or at trial, then that party must give no less than seven (7) days' written notice to the party who designated the information as Confidential prior to filing it so that the designating party has an opportunity to ask the Court to either seal the documents or allow them to be filed in redaction form. The party designating the information as Confidential shall be responsible for asking the Court to either seal the documents or allow them to be filed in redacted form. If a ruling is not obtained within the seven (7) day period, the party designating the material as confidential shall cooperate in requesting extensions to filing deadlines which the party seeking to use the information wishes to meet. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a party wishes to file a document that has Confidential Information embodied in it, the Confidential Information shall be redacted by the filing party prior to filing the document with the Clerk, to the extent the filing party does not wish that the Court consider the redacted information. If the Court declines to seal a document or allow it to be filed in redacted form, then the Party who wishes to use the Confidential Information may do so unsealed and unredacted, according to the Court Order.

         6. Except with the prior written consent of the designating party or as otherwise expressly permitted by this Order, the receiving party may disclose Confidential Information of the designating party only to the following persons:

A. The Court and Court personnel;
B. The parties and attorneys for each party; and
C. Experts retained by the receiving party for consultation or for testimony after the procedures set forth in ...
