Cambridge University Press et al v. Patton et al Doc. 124 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA, ATLANTA DIVISION CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS, INC., and SAGE PUBLICATIONS, INC., Plaintiffs, - v. MARK P. BECKER, in his official capacity as Georgia State University President, et al., Defendants. Civil Action No. 1:08-CV-1425-ODE PLAINTIFFS' SUPPLEMENTAL INITIAL DISCLOSURES Plaintiffs hereby supplement their initial disclosures as follows: (1) State precisely the classification of the cause of action being filed, a brief factual outline of the case including plaintiff's contentions as to what defendant did or failed to do, and a succinct statement of the legal issues in the case. In addition to the outline of the case set forth in the initial disclosures, Plaintiffs state the following: Seven months into the discovery process in this action, Defendants informed the Plaintiffs that the University System of Georgia Board of Regents 700251.1 Dockets.Justia.com had unilaterally revised its copyright policies. Defendants claimed that this development would alter practice at GSU going forward (and thus the litigation as well). However, the deposition testimony and the documents produced under Defendants' continuing discovery obligations have demonstrated that the new policy has changed little, if anything, in terms of copyright compliance at GSU. Georgia State University's unauthorized and infringing uses of Plaintiffs' works have continued unabated under the auspices of this new policy. (4) Provide the name of any person who may be used at trial to present evidence under Rules 702, 703, or 705 of the Federal Rules of Evidence. Plaintiffs may use the following individuals at trial to present evidence under Rules 702, 703, or 705 of the Federal Rules of Evidence: Robert B. K. Dewar, Debra Mariniello, and Steven Sheffrin. The Expert Reports of Robert Dewar, Debra Mariniello, and Steven Sheffrin are attached hereto as Exhibit A, B, and C, respectively. Name Robert B. K.
