(d) Confidential Disclosures Pending Entry of Protective Order

Prior to entry of a protective order, no party may delay disclosures under the Supplemental Patent Rules, or responses to discovery, on the ground of confidentiality. Confidential disclosures and discovery responses may be designated (by the producing party) as "outside attorneys' eyes only" until the entry of a protective order, at which point all information must be treated in accord with the terms of the protective order.
