ORDER ADDRESSING DESIGNATION PROCEDURES 
FOR "PROTECTED INFORMATION" 

On November 8, 2004, counsel for respondents in these coordinated cases filed a motion 

requesting the Court to designate as "protected information" the unclassified information 

contained in the respondents' factual returns to the petitions for writs of habeas corpus that is not 

filed on the public record. Counsel for certain petitioners filed responses stating that they could 

not take a position on the respondents' motion until they or a designated representative had an 

opportunity to review the material that the respondents seek to have declared "protected." 

hi the interest of the efficient administration of these proceedings, it is hereby 

ORDERED that should counsel for respondents in these consolidated cases wish to have 

the Court deem any information "protected" pursuant to the Court's November 8, 2004 Amended 

Protective Order and Procedures for Counsel Access to Detainees at the United States Naval 

Base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, counsel for respondents shall disclose the information to 

qualified counsel for petitioners and attempt to reach an agreement regarding the designation of 

the information prior to filing a motion with the Court. "Qualified counsel" for petitioners 

means those counsel who have satisfied the necessary prerequisites set forth in the Amended 



Case 1:05-cv-01458-UNA-AK Document 2-6 Filed 08/31/2005 Page 2 of 2 

Protective Order for the viewing of protected information. 

It is FURTHER ORDERED that counsel for petitioners shall treat such disclosed 
information as "protected" unless and until the Court rules that the information should not be 
designated as "protected." 

It is FURTHER ORDERED that counsel for petitioners shall make their best efforts to 
designate one attorney as a representative to review the information on their behalf and to 
negotiate with counsel for respondents prior to the filing of any motions to deem information 
"protected." 

With respect to the November 8, 2004 Motion to Designate as "Protected Information" 
Unclassified Information in Factual Returns to Petitions for Writ of Habeas Corpus That is Not 
Filed on the Public Record, it is hereby 

ORDERED that counsel for respondents shall deliver the information they seek to be 
deemed "protected" to the Court Security Officer at the designated secured facility on or before 
November 17, 2004. 

It is FURTHER ORDERED that the Court Security Officer shall notify counsel for the 
petitioners of the location of the secured facility on or before November 12, 2004. 

It is FURTHER ORDERED that petitioners' counsel shall review at the secured facility 
the information at issue and shall notify the Court of their position with respect to the designation 
of the information on or before November 19, 2004. 

IT IS SO ORDERED.
