SRI INTERNATIONAL, INC, Defendant. _____________________________________/ 18 19 On February 7, 2013, the parties filed a pair of discovery letters regarding Plaintiffs’ 20 responses to SRI’s Interrogatories Nos. 8 and 9 and its Requests for Production 11, 26, 58, and 66. In 21 the letters, SRI contends that Fortinet and Check Point have failed to sufficiently answer and produce 22 evidence responsive to the interrogatories and document requests; Plaintiffs, however, contend that 23 SRI "raises already-resolves issues," and proffer an alternative outline of issues they believe remain 24 outstanding. Because the parties' letters do not enable the Court to precisely gauge what issues 25 remain unresolved or to meaningfully ascertain what discovery Plaintiffs have produced since the 26 parties filed their letters, the Court ORDERS as follows. The parties shall meet and confer, in 27 person, on March 14, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. in Courtroom B, located on the 15th Floor of the Federal 28 Building, 450 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco, California 94102. 1 At the meet and confer session, the parties shall come prepared to meaningfully discuss and 2 resolve their outstanding discovery disputes. In the event that the parties are unable to resolve their 3 disputes, they shall draft a joint letter at the meet and confer session in compliance with paragraph 4 4 of the standing order, and said letter shall be presented by the parties for filing at the conclusion of 5 the session. Thus, the parties are ORDERED to bring with them one laptop and a USB port6 compatible storage medium (such as a thumb drive) to use in drafting said letter. 7 8 IT IS SO ORDERED. 9 10 Dated: March 11, 2013 _______________________________ Maria-Elena James United States Magistrate Judge 12 For the Northern District of California UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 11 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
