BOB KOHN’S MOTION TO STAY FINAL JUDGMENT
Bob Kohn, on his own behalf and by his attorneys, hereby moves for a stay of execution
of the Final Judgment pending appeal of the Court’s Opinion & Order filed September 6, 2012.
The grounds for this motion, as more fully set forth in the accompanying Memorandum, are that
the Second Circuit standard for stay pending appeal is fully satisfied here, the harm to e-book
consumers who would become victims of the Final Judgment are irreversible (while the alleged
harm to e-book consumers pending the appeal may be tracked precisely by e-book resellers), and
without a stay of execution of the Final Judgment, an appeal of these issues would become moot.
WHEREFORE, this motion should be granted and the Court should stay the execution of
the Final Judgment pending appeal of the Court’s Opinion & Order filed September 6, 2012. A
form of proposed Order is attached.
