CLE Credits

It has become quite routine for attorneys to utilize protective orders or confidentiality orders in complex litigation matters. The reasons are multi-faceted, and can include something as simple as protection of one party (or both) parties’ confidential and proprietary information, and can range from expediting the flow of discovery material to facilitating the prompt and efficient resolution of disputes. However, certain decisions have warned against the overuse of protective orders. This program will provide a diverse discussion among plaintiff and defense counsel and a retired federal magistrate judge relating to protective orders generally, the protection of propriety information, and practice tips for attorneys involved in complex litigation who are facing similar issues.
