Richtek Technology Corporation et al v. uPI Semiconductor Corporation et al

Filing 538

Discovery Order. The court previously devised a process for the use of third parties' CBI produced in the ITC case and set deadlines to file any objections to the parties' review of it as part of their trial preparation. That process req uired notice to the third parties and the ITC and an opportunity to object by October 11 at 3 p.m. No one objected. The court thus vacates the October 13 hearing and orders the following process. For any producing party that has not consented in writ ing to the use of its CBI, the parties may review the CBI as part of their trial preparation. If the parties want to use the CBI at trial, they must notify the producing party, which may raise any objections with the parties and then with the court. The attached order provides more detail.
