In support of this motion, the Parties show the Court as follows: 1. On November 5, 2010, the Court entered a Scheduling Order in this case in which the parties were given a period of 45 days from November 30, 2010 to complete depositions of up to five GSU witnesses; 45 days from the completion of those depositions to submit a joint filing detailing alleged infringements at GSU during the 2009 Maymester, Summer 2009 term, and Fall 2009 term; and 30 days from the joint filing of alleged infringements to file the Pre-Trial Order. 2. Plaintiffs noticed the depositions of five GSU professors for January 13-15, 2011. However, given the holiday season and year-end semester break at GSU, the travel and teaching schedules of the professors noticed for depositions, and delays in obtaining and producing certain discovery materials, the parties mutually agreed to conduct the depositions on February 2-4, 2011. 3. In light of the delay in completing depositions, the parties' ongoing attempt to resolve certain additional discovery issues, and the need for sufficient time to allow the parties to collaborate on the both joint filing of alleged infringements and various aspects of the Pre-Trial Order (including factual stipulations and exhibit 723431.1 2 US_ACTIVE:\43641880\01\38985.0001 2 lists), the parties hereby request the Court to extend the deadline for the joint filing of alleged infringements to April 1, 2011, and the deadline for the Pre-Trial order to April 29, 2011. A Proposed Order is attached for the Court's convenience. Respectfully submitted this 2nd day of March 2011. /s/ Anthony B. Askew Anthony B.
