Burtis, 7 Ph.D. Plaintiffs seek leave because on April 11, 2011, Defendants submitted a new, supplemental 8 expert report in support of their opposition to class certification by their expert Dr. Burtis. It is 9 Plaintiffs’ position that this new, supplemental expert report is improper and must be stricken. 10 I. MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES 11 On October 28, 2010, this Court signed an Order setting forth the schedule for certain matters 12 in this action. Dkt. No. 392. That October 28, 2010 scheduling Order provided that briefing on 13 Plaintiffs’ motion for class certification would be complete on March 28, 2011. Apple has flouted 14 this deadline by submitting a 15-page expert report, with detailed exhibits and more than 40 15 footnotes, that plainly addresses class-certification matters. Apple should not be allowed to submit 16 this lengthy new report nearly two weeks after briefing on class certification is over and just a week 17 before the hearing on the motion is scheduled, particularly where Plaintiffs have not been able to 18 examine Dr. Burtis regarding this newly-filed report. Plaintiffs’ Motion for Leave should be 19 considered on an expedited basis because of the pending schedule for oral argument. 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 619022_1 PLTFS’ NOM & MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE PLTIFFS’ MOT TO STRIKE THE SUPPLEMENTAL EXPERT REPORT OF DR.
