Counsel encouraged to agree on terms of protective order

"Despite filing a 'Joint Motion for Entry of Protective Order,' the Protective Order as proposed by the parties . . . contained a disputed provision and was therefore not actually agreed to by the parties. . . . [T]he parties may submit a protective order that conforms with the protective order suggested by the local rules or a protective order agreed upon by competent counsel. If the parties' current counsel cannot agree on a protective order, the Court suggests they retain alternative, competent counsel."
