INFINEON TECHNOLOGIES AG,
No. C 11-6239 MMC
ORDER GRANTING IN PART AND
DENYING IN PART PLAINTIFF’S
ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO SET
DEADLINE FOR DEFENDANT’S
MOTION AND TO VACATE PRETRIAL
DEADLINES; DIRECTING PARTIES TO
FILE STATUS REPORT
Before the Court is plaintiff Infineon Technologies AG’s administrative “Motion to
Extend Time for Certain Pretrial Deadlines Pursuant to Civil Local Rules 6-3 and 7-11,” filed
October 31, 2012, by which motion plaintiff seeks (1) an order setting a deadline of
November 9, 2012 for the filing of any motion by defendant regarding plaintiff’s Second
Amended Infringement Contentions (“SAICs”), and (2) an order extending the claim
construction deadlines. Defendant Volterra Semiconductor Corporation has filed a
response, in which it opposes the former and, as to the latter, agrees that the current
deadlines should be vacated but opposes the setting of new deadlines at the current
juncture of the proceedings. Having read and considered the papers filed in support of,
and in response to the motion, the Court rules as follows.
To the extent plaintiff requests the Court set a November 9, 2012 deadline for
defendant to challenge or otherwise respond to plaintiff’s SAICs, the Court agrees with
defendant that any such request should be presented to Magistrate Judge Donna M. Ryu,
to whom all discovery matters have been referred. Accordingly, said request is hereby
DENIED without prejudice.
To the extent plaintiff requests the Court vacate the current claim construction
deadlines and reset new dates at this time, the Court finds the current deadlines should be
vacated, but agrees with defendant that it is premature to set a revised claim construction
schedule given the current posture of the case. Accordingly, said request is hereby
GRANTED in part, and the current deadlines are hereby VACATED; the parties are hereby
DIRECTED to file a Status Report, no later than January 7, 2012, apprising the Court as to
the status of the proceedings before Magistrate Judge Ryu and any other matters bearing
on the pretrial schedule.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: November 8, 2012
