UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA OAKLAND DIVISION ORACLE USA, INC., et al., v. Plaintiffs, CASE NO. 07-CV-01658 PJH (EDL) STIPULATED REQUEST AND [PROPOSED] ORDER CHANGING TIME FOR HEARING OF ORACLE'S MOTION PURSUANT TO 17 U.S.C. 410(c) [Fed. R. Civ. Proc. 6(b), Civil L.R. 6-1, 6-2, 7-1, 7-12] Case No. 07-CV-01658 PJH (EDL) STIPULATED REQUEST AND [PROPOSED] ORDER CHANGING TIME FOR HEARING OF ORACLE'S MOTION PURSUANT TO 17 U.S.C. 410(c) SAP AG, et al., Defendants. Dockets.Justia.com 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 I. STIPULATED REQUEST TO CHANGE TIME PER CIV. L.R. 6-2 GOOD CAUSE EXISTS TO PERMIT ORACLE'S MOTION PURSUANT TO 17 U.S.C. 410(c) TO BE HEARD ON SEPTEMBER 30, 2010 Plaintiffs Oracle USA, Inc., Oracle International Corporation, Oracle EMEA Limited and Siebel Systems, Inc. ("Plaintiffs") and Defendants SAP AG, SAP America, Inc., and TomorrowNow, Inc. ("Defendants"; together with Plaintiffs, the "Parties") respectfully submit this Stipulated Request and [Proposed] Order pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 6(b) and Civ. L.R. 6-1, 6-2, 7-1, and 7-12, requesting that the Court permit Oracle's motion pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 410(c) (the " 410(c) Motion") to be heard at the Pretrial Conference set for September 30, 2010. In their Joint Pretrial Statement, the Parties agreed that "[t]he evidentiary weight to be given to six certificates of copyright registrations (and the factual statements in those registrations) . . . because the copyrights were not registered within five years of first publication" was a disputed point of law to be resolved by the Court. D.I. 745 at 75:19-23; see also 17 U.S.C. 410(c) (stating that the evidentiary weight to be given to certificates of registration for registrations not made within five years of first publication "shall be within the discretion of the court"). Plaintiffs will file a motion requesting that the Court exercise its discretion with respect to these six certificates of copyright registration. See Declaration of Geoffrey M. Howard in Support of Stipulated Request For Order Changing Time for Hearing of 410(c) Motion ("Howard Decl."), 3. Pursuant to Civ. L.R. 7-2, motions not otherwise excused "must be filed, served and noticed in writing on the motion calendar of the assigned Judge for hearing not less than 35 days after service of the motion." (emphasis added). Plaintiffs respectfully suggest that setting this motion for hearing on September 30, 2010, during the Parties' Pretrial Conference and in parallel with the current schedule for the parties' Daubert motions, would be efficient and convenient for both the Court and the parties. See Howard Decl., 2, 4. Defendants agreed to this proposed schedule and so stipulate. Id., 4. As September 30, 2010, is not a date on Your Honor's motion calendar, the Parties respectfully submit this Stipulated Request and [Proposed] 2 Case No. 07-CV-01658 PJH (EDL) STIPULATED REQUEST AND [PROPOSED] ORDER CHANGING TIME FOR HEARING OF ORACLE'S MOTION PURSUANT TO 17 U.S.C. 410(c) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Order in compliance with Local Rules. The Parties have not previously requested relief for calendaring the 410(c) Motion. Id., 6. Should Your Honor deny this Stipulated Request and [Proposed] Order, the 410(c) Motion will be set for September 29, 2010, or as soon thereafter as permitted by the Court. See id., 4. Therefore, the effect of the Stipulated Request and [Proposed] Order would be, at most, to grant Defendants one additional calendar day for their Opposition to 410(c) Motion, and to grant Plaintiffs one additional calendar day for their Reply in Support of 410(c) Motion. See.Civ. L.R. 7-3(a) (requiring that any opposition "be served and filed not less than 21 days before the hearing date"); id. at (c) (requiring that any reply to an opposition "be served and filed not less than 14 days before the hearing date"). The Stipulated Request and [Proposed] Order would therefore not have any significant impact on the schedule for the case. See Howard Decl., 5. For the reasons stated above and in the accompanying declaration, good cause exists to grant the Stipulated Request and [Proposed] Order, thereby allowing the 410(c) Motion to be heard on September 30, 2010.
