ORDER GRANTING IN PART
PLAINTIFF’S MOTION TO COMPEL
No. C-09-05535 EDL
DATEL HOLDINGS LTD,
United States District Court
For the Northern District of California
On July 29, 2011, the Court held a hearing on Plaintiff’s Motion to Compel or for a
Protective Order Pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure section 2019.210. For the reasons
stated at the hearing, Plaintiff’s Motion is granted, insofar as Defendant shall provide a more
detailed description of its trade secrets by identifying source code files that embody the trade secrets,
although it may do so as part of discovery rather than a pleading pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure
section 2019.210. If the code files are longer than thirty-six pages, then Defendant shall identify
page and line numbers within the source code files that embody the trade secrets. Defendant’s
description of trade secrets shall be binding on Defendant and not subject to alteration, for example,
in the form of a response to an interrogatory or a request for admission. Defendant shall provide as
much detailed information as possible before the parties take the next depositions in London. No
later than August 10, 2011, Defendant shall provide full descriptions of the trade secrets in
accordance with this Order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: July 29, 2011
ELIZABETH D. LAPORTE
United States Magistrate Judge
