         1.1 Disclosure and discovery activity in this action are likely to involve production of confidential, proprietary, or private information for which special protection from public disclosure and from use for any purpose other than prosecuting this litigation may be warranted. Accordingly, the Parties hereby stipulate to and petition the court to enter the following Stipulated Protective Order. The parties acknowledge that this Order does not confer blanket protections on all disclosures or responses to discovery and that the protection it affords from public disclosure and use extends only to the limited information or items that are entitled to confidential treatment under the applicable legal principles.

         1.2 All confidential information in these cases shall be used solely for this litigation and no other purpose. In no event shall any person receiving confidential information use it for commercial or competitive purposes, make any public disclosure of the contents thereof, or use it in any other litigation, other than in conjunction with prosecuting or defending this litigation, provided, however, that nothing in this Agreement will affect the admissibility in other litigation or judicial proceedings of anything produced in the present matters. Rather, the admissibility of such things in other litigation and judicial proceedings shall be determined by the arbitrator or judge presiding over those proceedings.

         1.3 If any answer given or document produced in response to any discovery in these cases contain any confidential information, the producing party may mark such information or document as "CONFIDENTIAL." Any information or document so marked shall not be disclosed to any person except as may be permitted by this Agreement. The designation of any information as "CONFIDENTIAL" shall be made in good faith.

         1.4 This Agreement shall not abrogate or diminish any contractual, statutory, or other legal obligation or right of any party or person with respect to confidential information.

         1.5 The Agreement shall not be construed to waive any applicable privilege, work-product protection, or other protection, or to affect the ability of a party to seek relief for an inadvertent disclosure of material protected by privilege, work-product protection, or other protection.
