LEVITTE'S ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO CONSIDER WHETHER CASES SHOULD BE RELATED 1 Dockets.Justia.com 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 S C H U B E R T JONCKHEER KOLBE & KRALOWEC LLP 8 9 10 Three Embarcadero Center, Suite 1650 San Francisco, CA 94111 (415) 788-4220 2. 3. 4. Attached hereto as Exhibit A is a true and correct copy of a complaint captioned RK Attached hereto as Exhibit B is a true and correct copy of a complaint captioned A stipulation pursuant to Civil Local Rule 7-11(a) with defendant Google, Inc. West, Inc. v. Google, Inc., Case No. C 08-03452, pending before Judge Whyte. Pulaski & Middleman, LLC v. Google Inc., Case No. C 08-03888, pending before Judge Illston. ("Google") could not be obtained. Counsel for Google has proposed that Levitte, RK West, and Pulaski be related to another action involving Google currently pending before Judge Whyte, captioned Almeida v. Google, Inc., No. 08-02088. However, that action is factually and legally distinct from the actions at issue here, and plaintiff does not believe that the cases are related. 5. Unlike Almeida, the three cases at issue in this motion concern Google's inclusion of low-quality parked domain and error page websites within its AdWords advertising program. The lowest filed of these cases is pending before Judge Ware. Therefore, plaintiff Levitte believes that the other two cases should be related to Levitte, for proceedings before Judge Ware. I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States that the foregoing is true and correct. Executed this 3rd day of September, 2008 in San Francisco, California. _________________/s/_______________ Willem F.
