UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA NORFOLK DIVISION __________________________________________ ) ) ) Plaintiff, ) v. ) ) AOL, INC. et al., ) ) Defendants. ) __________________________________________) I/P ENGINE, INC., Civ. Action No. 2:11-cv-512 PLAINTIFF I/P ENGINE’S MOTION TO SHORTEN GOOGLE’S TIME TO RESPOND TO I/P ENGINE’S MOTION TO COMPEL DEFENDANT GOOGLE INC.’S CUSTODIAL DOCUMENT PRODUCTION Plaintiff I/P Engine, Inc. (“I/P Engine”) moves to shorten Google’s time to respond to I/P Engine’s Motion to Compel Defendant Google Inc.’s Custodial Document Production. I/P Engine, Inc. (“I/P Engine”) served its initial document requests upon Defendant Google Inc. (“Google”) more than six months ago, on November 7, 2011. On April 9, 2012, Google for the first time identified a target date for the production of those documents: June 15, 2012 – more than eight months after service of I/P Engine’s document requests. Google’s delays, and its proposed production date, are unreasonable, reflect a disregard for discovery procedures in this judicial district, and create tremendous prejudice for I/P Engine. I/P Engine’s Motion to Compel requests relief from the Court to address these delays and time is of the essence. In an effort to expedite the briefing process for I/P Engine’s Motion to Compel and for the reasons set forth in the accompanying Memorandum in Support of Plaintiff I/P Engine’s Motion to Shorten Google’s Time to Respond to I/P Engine’s Motion to Compel, I/P Engine DSMDB-3049035v1 respectfully requests this Court require Google to respond to I/P Engine’s Motion to Compel on or before April 18, 2012.
