James Ware TBD TBD 8, 4th Floor 1 TO: ALL PARTIES AND THEIR ATTORNEYS OF RECORD 2 PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that pursuant to Local Rule 7-11, as soon as the Court’s schedule 3 allows, in Courtroom 8, 4th Floor, of the above-captioned Court, located at 280 South First Street, 4 San Jose, California 95113, before the Honorable James Ware, Plaintiffs Melanie Tucker, Marianna 5 Rosen and Somtai Troy Charoensak (collectively, “Plaintiffs”) will and hereby do through 6 undersigned counsel, move the Court for leave to respond to Apple’s supplemental objections to the 7 reply declaration of Plaintiffs’ expert, Professor Roger G. Noll, and to respond to Apple’s improper 8 supplemental opposition to Plaintiffs’ motion for class certification. 9 As Plaintiffs explain in their response to Apple’s improper motion, Apple has completely 10 mischaracterized the deposition of Professor Noll and has improperly filed a supplemental 11 opposition to Plaintiffs’ class certification motion. Their motion is in violation of the Court’s Order 12 setting a briefing schedule and gives Plaintiffs no opportunity to respond, effectively giving Apple 13 the last word on Plaintiffs’ motion. It would be unfair to allow Apple’s blatant distortion of 14 Professor Noll’s testimony to go unrebutted. Contrary to Apple’s characterization, Professor Noll 15 developed a workable preliminary regression model, which shows that impact and damages can be 16 proved by relying on common proof. Apple’s selective quoting and out-of-context snippets do 17 nothing to change the fact that legal and factual issues predominate over any individual issues. 18 Plaintiffs submit that good cause exists to permit a short response to rebut Apple’s improper 19 portrayal of Professor Noll’s testimony. 20 DATED: April 15, 2011 Respectfully submitted, 21 ROBBINS GELLER RUDMAN & DOWD LLP JOHN J.
