Mirror Worlds, LLC v. Apple, Inc.

Filing 82

Joint MOTION to Expedite Briefing Schedule and Expedited Consideration of Motion to Amend Protective Order by Apple, Inc.. (Attachments: # 1 Text of Proposed Order)(Cherensky, Steven)

Mirror Worlds, LLC v. Apple, Inc. Doc. 82 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS TYLER DIVISION MIRROR WORLDS, LLC, Plaintiff, v. APPLE INC., Defendant. Civil Action No. 6:08-CV-88-LED JURY TRIAL DEMANDED JOINT MOTION FOR AN EXPEDITED BRIEFING SCHEDULE AND EXPEDITED CONSIDERATION OF MOTION TO AMEND PROTECTIVE ORDER Plaintiff Mirror Worlds, LLC and Defendant Apple Inc. jointly seek an expedited briefing schedule regarding an issue that the parties could not agree upon during negotiation of the Agreed Protective Order. [D.I. 79]. In particular, as mentioned in the parties' joint motion for entry of the protective order, the parties dispute whether Mirror Worlds' counsel in the present action should be permitted to participate in reexamination proceedings filed by Apple relating to the Patents-in-Suit.. [D.I. 77]. The expedited consideration and determination of that issue is important to both parties since it affects Apple's production of documents relating to the accused instrumentalities in this case and, as a result, Mirror Worlds' ability to review those documents. The parties accordingly request that Local Rule CV-7(e)-(f) be modified as follows: Briefing Apple Inc.'s Motion Regarding Disputed Issue In The Agreed Protective Order Mirror Worlds LLC's Response Due Date Under CV-7(e) and (f) Proposed Due Date 5 court days from entry of order granting this joint motion 12 days from service of motion (+ 3 days for electronic service) 5 court days from filing of Apple's motion Dockets.Justia.com Apple Inc.'s Reply 5 days from service of response (+ 3 days for electronic service) 3 court days from filing of Mirror Worlds LLC's response Dated: June 3, 2009 Respectfully submitted, /s/ Kenneth Stein Otis Carroll Texas Bar No. 03895700 Lead Attorney Deborah Race Texas Bar No. 16448700 IRELAND, CARROLL & KELLY, P.C. 6101 S.
