(“Plexxikon”) and Defendant Novartis 2 Pharmaceuticals Corporation (“Novartis”) (collectively, “the parties”) hereby jointly request that the Court 3 grant leave to file the attached Amended Joint Jury Instructions (Ex.

The 6 Court held a case management conference on December 3, 2019, at which it directed the parties “to meet 7 and confer regarding substantive jury instructions and e-file by December 20th a revised set of complete 8 jury instructions.” ECF Nos. 347; see also ECF No. 352 at 10:12-19, 12:11. Pursuant to that order, the 9 parties filed a revised set of complete jury instructions on December 20, 2019. (ECF No. 357). 10 On December 23, 2019, Plexxikon revised its proposal for Disputed Final Instruction No. 27. 11 Thereafter, the parties exchanged revised one-page position statements. Plexxikon’s revised proposal and 12 the parties’ updated position statements are incorporated in the attached Amended Joint Proposed Jury 13 Instructions (Exhibit A), which the parties seek leave to file. 14 15 The Court has set March 25, 2020 for a hearing on jury instructions.

A). Accordingly, the parties respectfully request that they be permitted to file the 20 21 PURSUANT TO STIPULATION, IT IS SO ORDERED: 22 23 24 25 26 1/3/2020 __________________________ Date __________________________________________ Hon.
