("KSEA") and Defendants Stryker Corporation and Stryker Communications, Inc. (collectively, "Stryker"), through their respective counsel of record, hereby stipulate to and jointly request the Court as follows: 1. By Order dated May 14, 2009 (Doc # 96-1), the Court entered an initial case management order. That order included the following deadlines: Fact discovery deadline Deadline to disclose expert witnesses Deadline to serve expert report(s) for which a party bears the burden of proof Deadline to serve rebuttal expert reports Expert discovery deadline Deadline to file dispositive motions Hearings on dispositive motions July 16, 2010 July 16, 2010 August 20, 2010 October 15, 2010 December 17, 2010 January 21, 2011 April 21, 2011 (pending court availability) 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2. REED SMITH LLP The May 14, 2009 Order also set the claim construction hearing for March 17, 2010. Thus, the Court originally arranged the case schedule such that the close of fact discovery and disclosure of expert witnesses would occur approximately three months after the claim construction hearing. 3. Based on the Court's Notice of Unavailability and subsequent communications with the Courtroom Deputy, Cora Klein, the parties learned that the Court would no longer be available for the claim construction hearing on March 17, 2010. Thus, the parties filed a stipulation and proposed order to move the hearing to a date on which the Court was available. Accordingly, by Order dated January 27, 2010 (Doc # 186), the Court entered a modified schedule for certain events up to and including the claim construction hearing. The Order continued the claim construction hearing date from March 17, 2010, until June 23, 2010. Per the Order, Stryker's Motion for Summary Judgment of Non-Infringement and KSEA's Cross Motion for Partial Summary Judgment 2 Amended Stipulation and Proposed Order Extending Deadlines Case No. C 09-0355 (VRW) US_ACTIVE-103711678.2 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A limited liability partnership formed in the State of Delaware of Infringement will also be heard on June 23, 2010. 4. The new claim construction (and summary judgment) hearing date of June 23, 2010, provides only a narrow window of time between the hearing and the close of fact discovery on July 16, 2010. Despite the diligent efforts of the parties to conduct discovery in parallel with other case deadlines pertaining to summary judgment briefing and claim construction, the parties believe that additional time will be needed to fully and fairly conduct discovery. To preserve the original time interval between the claim construction hearing and the close of fact discovery, and to preserve the original time intervals between the other, subsequent deadlines, the parties propose the following modifications to the schedule (which extend the current deadlines by approximately ninety days): Fact discovery deadline Deadline to disclose expert witnesses Deadline to serve expert report(s) for which a party bears the burden of proof Deadline to serve rebuttal expert reports Expert discovery deadline Deadline to file dispositive motions Hearings on dispositive motions October 14, 2010 October 14, 2010 November 18, 2010 January 13, 2011 March 17, 2011 May 26, 2011 July 7, 2011 (pending court availability) 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 3 Amended Stipulation and Proposed Order Extending Deadlines Case No. C 09-0355 (VRW) US_ACTIVE-103711678.2 REED SMITH LLP 5. Pursuant to Civil L.R. 6-2(a)(1)-(3), this stipulated request is accompanied by the Declaration of William R. Overend setting forth (a) the reasons for the requested rescheduling; (b) all previous time modifications in the case; and (c) the effect of the requested rescheduling. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A limited liability partnership formed in the State of Delaware IT IS SO STIPULATED.
