ROCHE MOLECULAR SYSTEMS, INC. and F. HOFFMANN-LA ROCHE LTD., JOINT NOTICE REGARDING STATUS OF CASE AND REQUEST TO CONTINUE CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE ; ORDER RESETTING CMC 22 Defendants. 23 24 25 26 27 28 JOINT NOTICE RE: STATUS OF CASE CASE NO. 3:12-CV-04411-EMC 1 Plaintiff Cepheid filed this declaratory judgment action on August 21, 2012, seeking, 2 inter alia, a declaration that the claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 5,804,375 (“the ’375 patent”) and 3 6,127,155 (“the ’155 patent”) are invalid and that Cepheid has not infringed any valid or 4 enforceable claim of the patents. Defendant Roche Molecular Systems, Inc. moved to stay 5 Counts I and II related to the ’375 patents pending final resolution of a Swiss arbitration between 6 the parties, and moved to dismiss Counts III and IV related to the ’155 patent for lack of case or 7 controversy. 8 9 On January 17, 2013, the Court issued its Order Granting Defendant’s Motion to Stay and Motion to Dismiss (“Order”). Dkt. No. 68. The Court stayed Counts I and II until further order 10 of this Court, directing the parties to update the Court within 30 days of the issuance of the 11 Arbitral Tribunal’s decision on the issue of jurisdiction. The Court also dismissed Counts III and 12 IV without prejudice. 13 On the same day, the Court also issued its Order Granting Roche Molecular Systems, 14 Inc.’s Administrative Motion to Further Continue Hearing Date for Initial Case Management 15 Conference and Extend Associated Deadlines. Dkt. No. 69. The Court reset the Initial Case 16 Management Conference from January 31, 2013 to March 14, 2013. 17 Because nothing new of substance has happened in either this case or the pending 18 arbitration since the Court’s Order, the parties believe that the Initial Case Management 19 Conference, currently scheduled for March 14, 2013 is not necessary at this time. The parties 20 respectfully suggest that the Court schedule a Case Management Conference after the parties 21 notify the Court of the Arbitral Tribunal’s decision on jurisdiction or of any other event that may 22 affect the case. 23 24 25 By his signature below, Counsel for Plaintiff certifies that Counsel for Defendants concur in the filing of this notice. 26 27 28 1 JOINT NOTICE RE: STATUS OF CASE CASE NO. 3:12-CV-04411-EMC 1 Dated: March 5, 2013 FINNEGAN, HENDERSON, FARABOW, GARRETT & DUNNER, LLP 2 /s/ Erik R.
