This matter comes before the Court on the parties' Stipulated Motion for Entry of Protective Order. The Court has reviewed that Motion.

2. Documents or information produced or provided by the parties during the course of discovery in the above matter may be designated as "Confidential Information" so long as the party who seeks confidentiality has a good faith belief that such document or information is entitled to confidentiality under the terms of this Order.
3. For purposes of this Order, "Document" is defined as provided in Fed.R.Civ.P. 34(a). A draft or non-identical copy is a separate document within the meaning of this term.
4. For purposes of this Order, "Producing Party" means a party that produces Confidential Information or other information in connection with this litigation.

8. Before any information is designated as "Confidential Information, " counsel of record for the Producing Party must first review the information and make a determination, in good faith, that the documents and/or information are confidential or otherwise entitled to protection under Fed.R.Civ.P. 26(c).
