CONSENT MOTION AND MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF CONSENT MOTION FOR EXPEDITED BRIEFING OF DEFENDANTS’ EMERGENCY MOTION FOR SANCTIONS AND TO STRIKE SUPPLEMENTAL EXPERT REPORT IN VIOLATION OF THE COURT’S OCTOBER 9 ORDER Defendants Google Inc., Target Corporation, IAC Search & Media, Inc., Gannet Co., Inc. and AOL Inc.

In support of this consent motion, defendants state as follows: 1. Trial in this matter begins on Tuesday, October 16, 2012.

On October 14, 2012, the Defendants filed their Emergency Motion for Sanctions and to Strike the Supplemental Expert Report in Violation of the Court’s October 9 Order and sought the agreement of the Plaintiff to expedite briefing on the issue so that the Court may rule in advance of the issue arising at trial this week. The Plaintiff has agreed and the parties have attached a Proposed Agreed Order as Exhibit 1 with an expedited briefing schedule for consideration. WHEREFORE, the defendants request that this Court enter the Proposed Agreed Order attached as Exhibit 1 to expedite the briefing on defendants’ Emergency Motion for Sanctions and to Strike the Supplemental Expert Report in Violation of the Court’s October 9 Order.
