1 2 3 4 5 6 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 7 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 8 9 ORACLE AMERICA, INC., 12 13 14 No. C 10-03561 WHA Plaintiff, 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 v. GOOGLE INC., REQUEST FOR FURTHER CLARIFICATION Defendant. / 15 16 Oracle has not answered the question. Oracle is correct that Facebook permits users to 17 configure their privacy settings so that individual posts are accessible to Internet users without 18 logging on to Facebook (i.e., entering a password). Nevertheless, as stated, the collection of a 19 Facebook user’s posts (called a “timeline”), is only accessible to other Facebook users, 20 regardless of the user’s privacy settings. The only way to view a Facebook post that a user has 21 classified as “public” without logging on is if an investigator somehow discovers the URL for 22 that particular post, which is virtually impossible without logging onto Facebook. By 23 MIDNIGHT TONIGHT, MARCH 23, Oracle will please explain with specificity how it intends to 24 view any juror’s “public” Facebook posts and how that procedure squares with its statement 25 that its investigators will not log onto Facebook. 26 IT IS SO ORDERED. 27 28 Dated: March 23, 2016. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
