Dockets.Justia.com CORPORATE DISCLOSURE STATEMENT Plaintiff-Appellee Apple Inc. is a California corporation. It has no parent corporation, and no publicly-held corporation owns 10% or more of its stock. 1 UNOPPOSED MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME Plaintiff-Appellee Apple Inc. ("Apple") respectfully requests a 22-day extension of time, until July 8, 2010, to file its answering brief in this appeal. This motion is necessitated by the Court's April 30, 2010, Order, which granted Defendant-Appellant Psystar Corporation's ("Psystar") oral motion for a 14-day extension of time to file the opening brief. Psystar does not oppose this motion, which is supported by the attached declaration of James G. Gilliland, Jr. Under the original schedule, Psystar's opening brief was due on or before May 3, 2010, and Apple's answering brief was due on or before June 2, 2010. Gilliland Decl. 2. On April 26, 2010, Psystar's lead counsel Kiwi Camara contacted Apple's lead counsel James Gilliland and asked whether Apple would consent to a 14-day extension of time for Psystar to file its opening brief. Apple agreed not to oppose Psystar's motion if Psystar would consent to a 22-day extension of time so that Apple could file its answering brief after counsel's scheduled vacation and the Fourth of July holiday. Psystar agreed. Id. 3. The Court granted Psystar's oral request for a 14-day extension on April 30, 2010, resetting the due date for Apple's answering brief to June 16, 2010. Id. 4. Apple now respectfully moves for a 22-day extension of time, until July 8, 2010, to file the answering brief. There is substantial need for the requested extension because Apple's lead counsel planned a family vacation to accommodate 2 the original briefing schedule, and will not be in California on the date the brief is currently due. Id. 2-3. Apple has not asked for any prior extensions, and affirms that it will file the answering brief within the time requested. Dated: June 9, 2010 Respectfully submitted, TOWNSEND AND TOWNSEND AND CREW LLP JAMES G. GILLILAND, JR. MEHRNAZ BOROUMAND SMITH NANCY L. TOMPKINS MEGAN M. CHUNG TYLER J. GEE By: s/Nancy L. Tompkins Nancy L. Tompkins Attorneys for Plaintiff-Appellee APPLE INC. 3 DECLARATION OF JAMES G. GILLILAND, JR. I, James G. Gilliland, Jr., declare as follows: 1. I am an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of California and before this Court. I am a partner at the law firm of Townsend and Townsend and Crew LLP, counsel of record for Plaintiff-Appellee Apple in this action. Pursuant to Ninth Circuit Rule 31-2.2(b), I submit this declaration in support of "Appellee Apple's Unopposed Motion For An Extension Of Time Within Which To File Its Answering Brief." I have personal knowledge of the facts stated herein and, if called as a witness, I could and would testify competently thereto. 2. Under the schedule established in this Court's January 15, 2010, scheduling order, the excerpts of record and opening brief of Appellant Psystar Corporation were due to be filed by May 3, 2010, and Appellee Apple's answering brief was due to be filed by June 2, 2010. With these dates in mind, I scheduled a vacation in late June 2010. 3. On April 26, 2010, Psystar's lead counsel Kiwi Camara contacted me to ask whether Apple would be opposed to a 14-day extension for Psystar's opening brief. Psystar's proposed extension of time to file its opening brief moved Apple's corresponding answering brief due date to a date that conflicted with my planned vacation and the Fourth of July holiday. Therefore, I responded that Apple would not oppose Psystar's extension request if Psystar would similarly not 4 oppose an extension until July 8, 2010, for Apple's answering brief. Psystar agreed to not oppose Apple's request for an extension to file its answering brief on or before July 8, 2010. 4. With this agreement, Psystar's counsel orally requested an extension of time. On April 30, 2010, the Court granted Psystar's 14-day oral extension of time by phone. Accordingly, Appellant Psystar's opening brief was due by May 17, 2010, and the due date of Appellee Apple's answering brief was reset for June 16, 2010. For the reasons set forth above, Apple respectfully requests a 22-day extension of the due date for its answering brief, which would extend that due date to Thursday, July 8, 2010. 5. Apple has not previously sought any extensions of the due date for its answering brief. Counsel have exercised and will exercise diligence in working on the preparation of Apple's answering brief in this matter, which will be filed within the requested time. I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of California that the foregoing is true and correct. EXECUTED this 9th day of June 2010 at San Francisco, California. s/James G.
