PageID 105 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA TAMPA DIVISION UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CASE NO. 8:17-cr-355-T-35TGW BRIAN QUINONEZ-SOTO and REYANDRA CAMORLINGA DISCOVERY PROTECTIVE ORDER This matter is before the Court on the United States' Motion for Discovery Protective Order (Doc. No. 31), filed September 27, 2017. Counsel for the defendants have indicated that they do not oppose the United States' motion. Pursuant to Rule 16(d), Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, for the reasons set forth in the United States' motion, the Court finds good cause for the entry of a protective order because the information contained in the discovery materials in this case are properly deemed sensitive and dissemination to the public would be improper. Accordingly, it is ORDERED: 1. This Protective Order shall govern all discovery material in any format (written or electronic) that is produced by the United States in discovery in this case. 2. The United States shall make available copies of discovery materials to defense counsel in compliance with its discovery obligations under PageID 106 Rule 16, Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure and other controlling statutory and case law. Possession of unredacted copies of the discovery materials is limited to the attorneys of record, and investigators, paralegals, law clerks, experts and assistants for the attorneys of record (collectively referred to herein as members of the defense team). 3. The members of the defense team may display and review the unredacted discovery materials with the Defendant and lay witnesses. The members of the defense team are prohibited from providing these unredacted copies of the discovery materials to the Defendant and/or other persons, and further shall not disseminate information contained in the discovery materials to any other persons. 4. Any documents currently under seal in connection in this case shall remain under seal, but may be disclosed by the United States to defense counsel pursuant to the terms of this Order. 5. The United States Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Florida is similarly allowed to display and review the unredacted discovery materials with lay witnesses, but is otherwise prohibited from providing copies of the unredacted discovery materials to lay witnesses, i.e., non-law enforcement witnesses. PageID 107 6. Nothing in this Order should be construed as imposing any discovery obligations on the United States or the Defendant that are different from those imposed by case law, 18 U.S.C. $ 3509(d), Rule 16 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, and/or the Local Rules of this Court. 7. Any discovery material that is filed with the Court in connection with pretrial motions, trial, sentencing, or other matter before this Court, shall be filed under seal and shall remain sealed until otherwise ordered by this Court. This does not require either party to seal all their filings as a matter of course, and the parties are required to comply in all respects to the relevant local and federal rules pertaining to the sealing of court documents. 8. The provisions of this Order shall not terminate at the conclusion of the prosecution of this case. PageID 108 9. Any discovery materials provided by the United States pursuant to this Order shall be returned to the United States Attorney's Office, including all copies, within ten days of the completion of the case before the Court or, if an appeal is taken, within ten days of the completion of the case in the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit or Supreme Court of the United States. DONE AND ORDERED at Tampa, Florida, on September 28, 2017. Romas S Wilon THOMAS G. WILSON United States Magistrate Judge Copies to: Assistant United States Attorney (Nolan) Defense Counsel (David E. Little and Matthew Luka)
