The plaintiff’s attorney in a product liability suit admitted that he provided a “confidential” deposition to unauthorized persons under the court’s protective order, arguing that the tire company waived confidentiality by voluntarily providing the deposition to plaintiffs’ attorneys in another case. The tire company provided portions of the deposition in the other case only after being ordered to do so, and only pursuant to a protective order devoid of any sharing provisions. McDonald v. Cooper Tire & Rubber Co., 186 Fed.Appx. 930, 2006 U.S. App. LEXIS 16537 (11th Cir. June 28, 2006).
