UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA NORFOLK DIVISION I/P ENGINE, INC. Plaintiff, v. Civil Action No. 2:11-cv-512 AOL, INC., et al., Defendants. DECLARATION OF EMILY O’BRIEN IN SUPPORT OF DEFENDANTS’ EMERGENCY MOTION FOR SANCTIONS AND TO STRIKE SUPPLEMENTAL EXPERT REPORT IN VIOLATION OF THE COURT’S OCTOBER 9 ORDER. I, Emily O’Brien, declare as follows: 1. I am an attorney in the law firm of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP and am counsel for Defendants Google Inc., IAC Search & Media, Inc., Gannett Co., Inc. and Target Corp. in the above-captioned case. I provide this declaration upon personal knowledge and, if called upon as a witness, would testify competently as to the matters recited herein. 2. Attached hereto as Exhibit 1 is a true and correct copy of Plaintiff’s Second Updated Expert Report of Ophir Frieder, dated October 12, 2012. 3. On October 13, 2012, I held a meet and confer with Plaintiff during which Plaintiff did not dispute its supplementation was not authorized by, and went beyond, the Court’s October 9 Order. During that same meet and confer, Plaintiff asserted that it had a right to supplement its 01980.51928/5007965.1 1 report simply because the Third Motion for Sanctions had been denied, and thus the supplemental source code production only then become part of the case. I declare under penalty of perjury of the laws of the United States that the foregoing is true and correct.
