Case No.13-cv-05038 NC ORDER RE: FURTHER POSTTRIAL BRIEFING 13 14 15 SEOUL SEMICONDUCTOR COMPANY, LTD., Defendant. 16 17 In light of the Supreme Court’s decision in Halo Electronics, Inc. v. Pulse 18 Electronics, Inc., et. al., 579 U.S. __ (2016), the Court finds that supplemental briefing on 19 SSC’s motion for a willfulness finding is necessary. The Court VACATES the hearing on 20 all other post-trial motions and will take the motions under submission. The Court will 21 hold a telephonic case management conference on June 16, 2016, at 1:00 p.m. 22 The Court notes that Halo Electronics relies on the same case law articulated by the 23 Supreme Court in Octane Fitness, LLC v. Icon Health & Fitness, Inc., 572 U.S. __ (2014), 24 which sets forth the standard for an award of attorneys’ fees in a patent case. In light of 25 this overlap, the Court finds it appropriate to accelerate the parties’ briefing on attorneys’ 26 fees. Thus, the Court tentatively adopts the following briefing schedule: 27 1. SSC must submit its brief for attorneys’ fees and supplemental brief on willfulness 28 on June 22. SSC is limited to 15 pages total and may choose to brief the two issues Case No.13-cv-05038 NC 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 together or in separate documents. 2. EDD may respond by June 29 to both the attorneys’ fees request and SSC’s supplemental brief on willfulness. EDD’s response is also limited to 15 pages total. 3. SSC may reply by July 6. The reply must be no more than 5 pages total. The Court reminds the parties that it has reviewed the parties’ initial briefing on willfulness and does not need them repeated. The parties should be prepared to discuss the above schedule at the case management conference. IT IS SO ORDERED. 10 United States District Court Northern District of California 11 Dated: June 13, 2016 _____________________________________ NATHANAEL M.
