As Dr. Tolat’s counsel at Farella Braun + Martel 17 point out, they have complied with the court’s directives concerning the independent expert’s 18 forensic review of the media at issue. Integral’s suggestion that Farella review 190,000 documents 19 for privilege is not what the court intended previously. The point was to identify anything that 20 might contain Integral’s information, and that has been done. The point was not to create an 21 exercise in logging Dr. Tolat’s personal files that demonstrably have nothing to do with Integral. 22 The point of an independent expert was to give confidence in the process, which has been 23 accomplished. 24 As to the return of the wiped Motorola Xoom, Integral raised that issue of ownership apparently 25 for the first time on October 18, 2013. It is not a discovery issue. To the extent that Integral says it 26 is because it wants to analyze the device, Integral already has AccessData’s report on the Xoom. 27 For these and the other reasons identified by Dr. Tolat in the joint letter brief, the motion is denied. 28 Integral also filed 71 pages of attachments to the letter brief. Going forward, Integral may ORDER (C 12-06575 JSW (LB)) 1 submit no more than 12 pages. If it wants to submit more, it must identify what it wants to submit 2 and describe why it needs to. 3 This disposes of ECF No. 188. 4 IT IS SO ORDERED. 5 Dated: November 12, 2013 6 _______________________________ LAUREL BEELER United States Magistrate Judge 7 8 9 10 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 ORDER (C 12-06575 JSW (LB)) 2
