Ward v. Cisco Systems, Inc. et al Doc. 70 Att. 4 Case 4:08-cv-04022-JLH Document 70-5 Filed 06/12/09 Page 1 of 2 Patent Troll Tracker; ESN Convinces EDTX Court Clerk To Alter Documents To Try To Manufacture Subjeet Matter Jurisdiction Wbere None Existed An alternative look at patent litigation trends, focusing on the increasing number of patent Lawsuits brought by shell con:Ibrations that make or sell no goods or services. Thursday, October 18, 2007 C3 ESN Convinces EDTX Court Clerk To Alter Documents To Try To Manufacture Subject Matter Jurisdiction Where None Existed I got a couple of anonymous emails this morning, pointing out that the docket in ESN v. Cisco (the Texas docket, not the Connecticut docket), had been altered. One email suggested that ESN's local counsel called the EDTX court clerk, and convinced him/her to change the docket to reflect an October 16 filing date, rather than the October 15 filing date. I checked, and sure enough, that's exactly what happened - the docket was altered to reflect an October 16 filing date and the complaint was altered to change the filing date stamp from October 15 to October 16. Only the EDTX Court Clerk could have made such changes. 64. Utp. Of course, there are a couple of flaws in this conspiracy. First, ESN counsel Eric Albritton signed the Civil Cover Sheet stating that the complaint had been filed on October 15. Second, there's tons of proof that ESN filed on October 15. Heck, Dennis Crouch may be subpoenaed as a witness! You can't change history, and it's outrageous that the Eastern District of Texas may have, wittingly or unwittingly, helped a non-practicing entity to try to manufacture subject matter jurisdiction. Even if this was a "mistake," which can't see how it could be, given that someone emailed me a printout of the docket from Monday showing the case, the proper course of action should be a motion to correct the docket.
