(“Google”), Amazon.com, Inc. (“Amazon”), 4 and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (“Walmart”) (collectively, “Defendants”), by and through their 5 respective attorneys, hereby submit the following Joint Stipulation, as follows: 6 WHEREAS, at the August 2, 2017 Case Management Conference, the Court ordered that 7 Defendants are allowed to file a single motion for summary judgment regarding double 8 patenting, obviousness-type double patenting, collateral estoppel, and/or res judicata (including 9 Kessler doctrine); 10 WHEREAS, at the August 2, 2017 Case Management Conference, the Court ordered that 11 Eolas may cross-move for summary judgment regarding double patenting, obviousness-type 12 double patenting, collateral estoppel, and/or res judicata (including Kessler doctrine); 13 14 WHEREAS, at the August 2, 2017 Case Management Conference, the Court ordered that the parties meet and confer as to a briefing schedule for such summary judgment motions; 15 WHEREAS, at the August 2, 2017 Case Management Conference, the Court ordered that 16 the parties meet and confer as to a briefing schedule for reconsideration of claim construction 17 with respect to the term “interactive-content application”; 18 NOW THEREFORE IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED AND THE PARTIES JOINTLY 19 REQUEST that the Court enter the below briefing schedule for the early summary judgment and 20 claim construction reconsideration motions. 21 22 DEADLINE DESCRIPTION DATE Defendants file motion for summary judgment Friday, September 15, 2017 Defendants file motion for limited reconsideration of claim construction Tuesday, September 26, 2017 23 24 25 26 27 28 1 ATTORNEYS AT LAW SILICON VALLEY Case Nos. 3:17-cv-01138-JST; 3:17-cv-03022-JST; 3:17-cv-03023-JST JOINT STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER SETTING EARLY SJ AND CC RECONSIDERATION BRIEFING SCHEDULES 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 DEADLINE DESCRIPTION DATE Eolas files opposition brief, and if desired cross-motion for summary judgment Friday, October 6, 2017 Eolas files opposition brief to motion for limited reconsideration of claim construction Friday, October 13, 2017 Defendants file reply brief for Defendants’ motion for summary judgment, and opposition brief to Eolas’s cross-motion for summary judgment, if one was filed Wednesday, October 18, 2017 Technology Tutorial At Court’s convenience 11 12 13 14 15 Eolas files reply brief for Eolas’s cross-motion for summary judgment, if one was filed Wednesday, October 25, 2017 Defendants file reply brief to motion for limited reconsideration of claim construction Wednesday, October 25, 2017 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2 ATTORNEYS AT LAW SILICON VALLEY Case Nos. 3:17-cv-01138-JST; 3:17-cv-03022-JST; 3:17-cv-03023-JST JOINT STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER SETTING EARLY SJ AND CC RECONSIDERATION BRIEFING SCHEDULES 1 DEADLINE DESCRIPTION 2 DATE 3 Hearing on summary judgment motions 4 Wednesday, November 1, 2017, if the Court is available1,2 5 Claim Construction Hearing 6 At Court’s convenience 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 1 Defendants believe that the Court will be better prepared for a hearing on Defendants’ summary judgment motion, as well as Defendants motion for reconsideration regarding “interactive-content application,” if the Court conducts the technology tutorial first. If the Court has no earlier dates available for a technology tutorial, Defendants suggest that since all parties appear to be available on November 1, the Court conduct the tutorial on that date, and hold the hearing on the summary judgment motion on December 5, the date the parties are available for the Further Case Management Conference. In response to Eolas’s footnote below, counsel for Google is unavailable November 6-17, 2017 due to a trial in another matter. 2 Eolas is amenable to Defendants’ proposal to have a tutorial on November 1, 2017 in conjunction with the summary judgment hearing, if the Court desires. On the other hand, a change of date for a hearing on Defendants’ summary judgment motion from November 1 to December 5, 2017 is strongly disfavored by Eolas. If a date other than November 1 is needed, Eolas’s counsel is available for a hearing on November 2, 9, or 16. As noted at the Case Management Conference, Eolas continues to believe that the hearing on Defendants’ summary judgment motion should be heard in advance of the December 5th Further Case Management Conference so that the conference will be more productive and so that the parties may quickly resume case deadlines after that conference. Further, it would be very inconvenient for Eolas’s counsel to prepare for and attend a December 5 hearing that would encompass summary judgment issues in view of a previously-scheduled claim construction hearing on December 1 in Marshall, Texas, particularly given the other alternative dates in November upon which the hearing could be scheduled depending on Defendants’ and Court availability. To be clear, however, Eolas and its counsel remain available for the Further Case Management Conference on December 5. 28 3 ATTORNEYS AT LAW SILICON VALLEY Case Nos. 3:17-cv-01138-JST; 3:17-cv-03022-JST; 3:17-cv-03023-JST JOINT STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER SETTING EARLY SJ AND CC RECONSIDERATION BRIEFING SCHEDULES 1 DATED: August 4, 2017 Respectfully submitted, 2 3 4 5 By /s/ Kevin Burgess Stephanie Adams Ryan, SBN 289548 MCKOOL SMITH, P.C. 255 Shoreline Drive, Suite 510 Redwood Shores, California 94065 Tel: (650) 394-1400; Fax: (650) 394-1422 sadamsryan@mckoolsmith.com 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 John B.
