Civil Action No. 09CV4515 (RWS) Dear Judge Sweet: We represent proposed amici curiae BayBio, Celera Corporation, The Coalition for 21st Century Medicine, Genomic Health, Inc., QIAGEN, N.V., Target Discovery, Inc. and XDx, lnc. who are moving for leave to file a brief amicus curiae. We respectfully request for leave to allow an overlength brief that exceeds the twenty-five (25) page limit stated in the October 5, 2007, Individual Practices of Judge Robert W. Sweet. Good cause exists for the brief amicus curiae to exceed the current page limitation. Given the number of Amici herein, the brief contains 12 pages in which each Amici Curiae describes itself, its business, and the public benefit from its personalized medicine technology. Accordingly, for the reasons stated above, the proposed Amici Curiae respectfully request that the Court grant this request and grant the proposed Amici a total of thirty-six (36) pages for their brief amicus curiae.
