As of the date of this declaration, Samsung’s document production totals over 164,000 3 pages. 4 12. On April 11, 2012, the parties met and conferred regarding Apple's Requests for 5 Production and Interrogatories and Samsung's Responses thereto. During this meet and confer, 6 Apple's counsel asked Samsung if Samsung was claiming any privileges other than attorney-client 7 or work product doctrine. Samsung responded that it was asserting a common interest privilege 8 between Samsung and Google. Apple stated that it would "think about" Samsung's invocation of 9 the privilege and "get back to" Samsung. After this meet and confer on April 11, Apple's counsel 10 did not communicate with Samsung's counsel regarding Samsung's claim of the common interest 11 privilege between Samsung and Google. 12 13. During the parties' lead trial counsel in-person meet and confer on April 10, 2012, 13 and though not specifically discussed in the context of any particular Apple Request for 14 Production, the parties generally discussed the burden upon Samsung to collect documents 15 regarding every feature on every Samsung product (i.e. phones, smartphones and tablets) with no 16 date limitation. Though Apple certainly had every opportunity to ask questions regarding 17 Samsung's burden objection and obtain clarification, Apple asked no questions at the April 10, 18 2012 meet and confer or at the follow-up meet and confer on April 11, 2012. Additionally, 19 during the parties' meet and confer on April 10, 2012, Apple acknowledged the burden of 20 Samsung gathering documents for every feature on the foregoing Samsung products with no date 21 limitation, but Apple's counsel stated that it did not believe that that burden upon Samsung 22 justified not searching for and producing those documents. 23 14. Apple has produced over 20,000 pages of documents after Samsung deposed three 24 Apple technical experts on the preliminary injunction patents (Nathaniel Polish, Todd Mowry and 25 Ravin Balakrishnan), two Apple declarants regarding irreparable harm (Arthur Rangel and Steven 26 Sinclair) and the inventor of Apple '647 Patent (David Wright). Apple's latest document 27 production of approximately 6,300 pages occurred on April 17, 2012. 28 Case No. 12-CV-00630-LHK -2FAZIO DECL. ISO SAMSUNG’S OPPOSITIONS TO APPLE'S MOTIONS TO COMPEL 1 15.
