Nos. 153, 159] ZOOSK INC., 10 Defendant. _____________________________________/ 12 For the Northern District of California UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 11 13 On September 16, 2013, Defendant Zoosk, Inc. filed a joint letter requesting a telephonic 14 conference with the Court in order to enforce the Court’s meet-and-confer requirement. Dkt. No. 15 153. According to Zoosk, Plaintiff Geotag, Inc., has refused to meet and confer to discuss Geotag’s 16 Revised Supplemental Infringement Contentions and has failed to agree to a briefing schedule for 17 submission of a joint letter regarding the amended infringement contentions. 18 On September 17, 2013, GeoTag filed a letter in response, disagreeing with Zoosk’s statement 19 that it has refused to meet and confer, and representing that it is Zoosk that has failed to comply with 20 the meet and confer requirement. Dkt. No. 159. GeoTag represents that it “is willing to discuss these 21 matters on the merits once Zoosk counsel has properly met and conferred in person.” 22 Thus, it is unclear what the dispute is at this point: both parties are well-aware of the Court’s 23 meet and confer requirement and both parties have indicated their willingness to meet and confer. 24 Accordingly, the Court DENIES Zoosk’s request for a telephonic conference and ORDERS 25 as follows: no later than 9:00 a.m. on September 19, 2013, Zoosk shall propose to GeoTag three dates 26 and times within the next 7 days when counsel is available to meet and confer in person. GeoTag 27 shall select one of the dates and times and inform Zoosk of its decision no later than noon on 28 September 19, 2013. 1 If the parties are unable to successfully complete this process, they shall notify the Court and 2 the Court will order a date and time for the parties to appear in Court to fulfill the meet and confer 3 requirement. 4 IT IS SO ORDERED. 5 6 Dated: September 18, 2013 _______________________________ Maria-Elena James 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 2
