Sensitive Information includes, but is not limited to: (1) nonparty names, addresses, dates of birth, driver's license numbers, social security numbers, and other identifying information; (2) nonparty financial information; (3) statements by, and reports from interviews of, individuals who have been or are cooperating with the government's investigation; (4) any information that might disclose the identity of a cooperating individual; and (5) mental health information and information concerning the sexual history of persons other than the defendant.

         2. All materials containing Sensitive Information (the “Materials”), including those previously produced to the defendant in this case, are subject to this protective order and may be used by defendant and defendant's counsel (defined as counsel of record in this case) solely in connection with the defense of this case, and for no other purpose, and in connection with no other proceeding, without further order this Court.

         3. The Materials shall be plainly marked as sensitive by the government prior to disclosure. No such Materials, or the information contained therein, may be disclosed to any persons other than defendant, counsel for defendant, persons employed to assist the defense, or the person to whom the sensitive information solely and directly pertains, without prior notice to the government and authorization from the Court. Absent prior permission from the Court, information marked as sensitive shall not be included in any public filing with the Court, and instead shall be submitted under seal (except if the defendant chooses to include in a public document sensitive information relating solely and directly to the defendant.

         4. Defendant, defendant's counsel, and other persons to whom the Court may authorize disclosure, shall not copy or reproduce the Materials except in order to provide copies of the materials for use in connection with this case by defendant, defendant's counsel, and authorized persons. Such copies and reproductions shall be treated in the same manner as the original materials.

         5. Defendant, defendant's counsel, and authorized persons shall not disclose any notes or records of any kind that they make in relation to the contents of the Materials, other than to authorized persons, and all such notes or records are to be treated in the same manner as the original Materials.

         6. Before providing the Materials to an authorized person, defense counsel must provide the authorized person with a copy of this Order and require the authorized person to sign a statement acknowledging that the authorized person has received a copy of and reviewed this Order, and has agreed to be bound by its terms and conditions subject to sanctioning by the Court for any violations of this Order. Defense counsel shall maintain a copy of the signed statement of each authorized person for a period of twelve months after the conclusion of all stages of this case, and shall provide copies of the signed statement of each authorized person to the government upon request.

         7. Upon conclusion of all stages of this case, all of the Materials and all copies made thereof shall be disposed of in one of three ways, unless otherwise ordered by the Court. The Materials may be (1) destroyed; (2) returned to the United States; or (3) retained in defense counsel's case file.
