The Court now has a default Protective Order for patent cases. The PO can be found under “Courtroom Guidance” on the Court’s website HERE.
Prior to this default protective order, Judge Albright had previously recommended that the parties use the default EDTX protective order as a starting point. The new Waco Division default protective order is similar to the EDTX order, with a few additions.
Most notably, the Waco Division PO includes both a “CONFIDENTIAL – OUTSIDE ATTORNEYS’ EYES ONLY” designation as well as a “CONFIDENTIAL – ATTORNEYS’ EYES ONLY” designation.
