Unites States of America v. Apple, Inc. et al
ENDORSED LETTER addressed to Judge Denise L. Cote from Robert B. Bell dated 8/8/2013 re: We believe that Kobo satisfies the relevant standards for independence of an amicus curiae. Random House and Kobo have different business interests, are taking different but not inconsistent positions with respect to the proposed relief, and are commenting on different sections of the proposed relief. We respectfully request that you reaffirm your ruling from earlier today permitting us to file an amicus brief on behalf of Kobo. ENDORSEMENT: With the understanding that both clients consent and that their positions are not inconsistent, this application is granted. (Signed by Judge Denise L. Cote on 8/8/2013) (djc) Modified on 8/9/2013 (djc).
