4901:1-20-12 Protective orders.

Unless otherwise determined by the commission, legal director, deputy legal director, or attorney examiner, any order in an ETP proceeding that prohibits public disclosure of information shall automatically remain in effect during the pendency of the transition plan case, during the pendency of any appeal therefrom, plus sixty days. After the expiration of such protective order, the involved information may then be included in the public record of the proceeding. A party wishing to extend a protective order beyond the above time frame shall file an appropriate motion at least twenty days in advance of the expiration date of the existing order. The motion shall include a detailed discussion of the need for continued protection from disclosure. The requirements of this rule do not apply to information submitted to the commission staff. However, information submitted directly to the legal director, deputy legal director, or attorney examiner that is not filed may be filed with the commission's docketing division as part of the public record.
