SOFTLAYER TECHNOLOGIES, INC., et al., Defendants. ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) CASE NO. 6:09­CV­00269 Hon. Leonard E. Davis JURY TRIAL DEMANDED DEFENDANTS' NOTICE OF ESTIMATED AMOUNT OF TIME REQUESTED FOR THE MARKMAN HEARING Pursuant to the Docket Control Order dated February 3, 2010 (Dkt. No. 174), Defendants Google Inc., Match.com, LLC, Yahoo! Inc., MySpace Inc., AOL Inc., Softlayer Technologies, Inc., and Amazon.com Inc. file this Notice of Estimated Amount of Time Requested for the Markman hearing. Defendants estimate the Markman Hearing will take 3-4 hours, which is in line with "the Court's standard practice to conclude claim construction hearings by lunch." (Docket No. 252) Defendants anticipate that the Court will hear the arguments on the summary judgment motion of indefiniteness after lunch. In contradiction, "[p]laintiff suggests that the Court allow 3 hours for the hearing, with 1.0 hour allotted to each side for claim construction and .5 hour allotted to each side for oral 01980.51572/3696645.2 1 Dockets.Justia.com argument" on Plaintiff's pending discovery motions. (Dkt. No. 297.) Defendants are not opposed to addressing both Defendants' and Plaintiff's pending discovery motions in a discovery hearing. However, Defendants do not believe it is appropriate to address discovery motions during the time that has been set aside for the claim construction and summary judgment hearings and to only address those pending motions filed by Bedrock. Given the number of claim construction and summary judgment issues, Defendants suggest that any hearing addressing the parties' discovery disputes be scheduled on a different day than the claim construction hearing.1 Defendants will address this further in their forthcoming response to Bedrock's Motion To Set a Case Management Conference.
