ERIN SULLIVAN, PLAINTIFF,
STRYKER CORPORATION, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The confidentiality stipulation (Dkt. No. 53) executed by counsel for the parties in this action, a copy of which is attached to and incorporated herein by reference, pursuant to Rule 26(c) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, is hereby approved, subject to the following qualifications:
1) Paragraph 16 of the stipulation is not approved.

3) Upon the filing of any such application, the court will make a determination as to whether a sufficient showing has been made that the interests of parties in preserving the confidentiality of the information at issue sufficiently outweighs the public's interest in access to judicial documents in order to justify the requested sealing.
4) Paragraph 20 of the stipulation shall not be construed to require the court to return any confidential materials filed in the action upon its completion.
