Mirror Worlds, LLC v. Apple, Inc. Doc. 269 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS TYLER DIVISION MIRROR WORLDS, LLC, Civil Action No. 6:08-CV-88 LED Plaintiff, JURY TRIAL DEMANDED v. APPLE INC., Defendant. APPLE INC., Counterclaim Plaintiff, v. MIRROR WORLDS, LLC, MIRROR WORLDS TECHNOLOGIES, INC., Counterclaim Defendants. MIRROR WORLDS, LLC'S UNOPPOSED MOTION FOR LEAVE TO EXCEED PAGE LIMIT FOR ITS OPPOSITIONS TO APPLE INC.'S MOTIONS FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT Pursuant to Local Rule CV-7(l), Plaintiff Mirror Worlds, LLC ("Mirror Worlds") respectively submits this unopposed motion to exceed the page limit for Mirror Worlds' oppositions to Apple's five motions for summary judgment filed on July 22, 2010 (D.I. 250, 254256, 258) opposing Apple Inc.'s ("Apple") motions for Summary Judgment (D.I. 221, 223-226). Mirror Worlds' five opposition briefs (filed July 22, 2010) (D.I. 250, 254-256, 258) totaled sixty pages, which Mirror Worlds believed was consistent with the sixty-page limit set forth in Local Rule CV-7(a)(3)(B). However, following such filings Apple advised that Mirror Worlds had exceeded the sixty-page limit by fifteen pages based on counting a sixth brief filed on January 1 NY 72881444 Dockets.Justia.com 15, 2010 (D.I. 163) in connection with the Court's Markman proceedings. Accordingly, Mirror Worlds hereby moves for leave to file fifteen extra pages (i.e., an average of three extra pages per opposition). Mirror Worlds was unaware of its inadvertent mistake in calculating the pages until July 23, when Apple notified Mirror Worlds by email. Since then, Mirror Worlds has met and conferred with Apple in an attempt to reach an amicable resolution of the issue. Apple has advised Mirror Worlds that it will not oppose Mirror Worlds' request so long as Apple receives 20 pages for its Summary Judgment Reply Briefs. Mirror Worlds is agreeable to Apple's request. Accordingly, the accompanying Proposed Order addresses both Mirror Worlds' and Apple's requests for extra pages. Mirror Worlds respectfully requests that this Court allow it to exceed the page limits as it unintentionally did not account for its prior opposition brief. Alternatively, Mirror Worlds respectfully requests the Court allow Mirror Worlds to modify its responses to comply with the rules.
