RUBINSTEIN declares, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1746, as follows: 3 1. I am admitted pro hac vice to this Court and am a member of Friedman Kaplan 4 Seiler & Adelman LLP, attorneys for plaintiff T-Mobile USA, Inc. (“T-Mobile”). I submit this 5 6 declaration to place before the Court certain facts referenced in the Direct Action Plaintiffs’ 7 Motion to Dismiss Defendants LG Display America, Inc. and LG Display Co. Ltd.’s 8 (collectively, “LG Display”) Counterclaims and Strike their Defenses Concerning Duplicative 9 Recovery. 10 2. On June 5, 2012, after the Court rejected LG Display’s motion for leave to amend 11 its answers in certain cases brought by other direct action plaintiffs in this multidistrict litigation 12 (Dkt. No. 5795), counsel for Jaco Electronics, Inc. and I spoke with counsel for LG Display 13 14 about the prospect of LG Display’s voluntarily dismissing its counterclaims and defenses 15 concerning the issue of duplicative recovery. Counsel for LG Display expressed concern that 16 LG Display would not be able to preserve for appeal its arguments on this point if it stipulated to 17 the dismissal of its counterclaims and defenses or agreed to a form of order that achieved the 18 same result, but agreed to consider the matter further. 19 3. On June 18, 2012, I and counsel for certain of the other plaintiffs in the above- 20 21 captioned cases again spoke with counsel for LG Display. Repeating their concerns about 22 preserving for appeal LG Display’s duplicative recovery counterclaims and defenses, LG 23 Display’s counsel confirmed that LG Display would be unwilling to voluntarily dismiss its 24 counterclaims and strike its defenses concerning duplicative recovery. 25 26 27 28 2724444.2 1 2 I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States of America that the foregoing is true and correct. 3 Executed on July 19, 2012 at New York, New York. 4 /s/ 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2724444.2 Jason C.
