B. Motion for Stipulated Protective Order

Parties wishing to keep confidential documents obtained or disclosed during discovery, including for attorneys’ eyes only, may file a motion for protective order, with a proposed order, showing good cause for the relief requested. Notwithstanding any provision in the stipulated protective order, nothing in the court’s order authorizes any party to file under seal, absent further court order, any confidential discovery material with the Clerk of Court or at trial, as such filings are subject to greater scrutiny due to the common law right to inspect and copy judicial records and public documents. See Section I(C)(2) for filing of discovery and other documents under seal. See also Local Rule 1.11, Middle District of Florida.
