("Digital Envoy") requests an order, 23 pursuant Local Rule 7-10(b), allowing Digital Envoy's Surreply--which was filed on August 23, 24 2004 at or about 11:30 p.m.--to defendant's Motion to Stage Discovery (the "Motion"). Good 25 cause exists to grant Digital Envoy's request. 26 27 The Surreply addresses a very narrow issue, i.e., Google, Inc.'s ("Google") recent insistence on compliance with C.C.P. 2019(d) while seeking to delay any discovery it must 28 WO2~sF:5BB\61426252.1 REQUEST FOR ORDER ALLOWING SURRPELY IN OPPOSITION TO MOTION TO STAGE DISCOVERY Dockets.Justia.com Case 5:04-cv-01497-RS Document 37 Filed 08/24/2004 Page 2 of 2 1 2 3 4 respond to on trade secrets. Google only raised this issue after Digital Envoy filed its opposition1 and the parties' argued the Motion to the Court during the Case Management Conference. By raising the issue for the first time after the opposition was filed and after the Case Management Conference, Google denied Digital Envoy the opportunity to address this inconsistency in 5 Google's position while arguing the motion. 6 7 8 To ensure it might be heard on this issue, Digital Envoy filed its surreply within hours of receiving a copy of Google's reply brief and letters confirming its reliance on C.C.P. 2019(d). (Declaration of Craig Cardon in Support of Request for Order Allowing Surreply ("Cardon Dccl.") 9 at 2; see also Exhibits A and B attached to Cardon Dccl.) Digital Envoy was not able to seek a 10 11 12 13 14 15 stipulation from Google's counsel at the time it filed the surreply due to the late hour in the day, and accordingly did not file this request with the surreply. (Cardon Dccl. at 2.) Digital Envoy, however, did request a stipulation the following day, but was refused. (Declaration of Brian Blackman in Support of Request for Order Allowing Surreply at 2.) For these reasons, Digital Envoy requests the Court issue an order pursuant to Local Rule 7-10(b) accepting the Surreply filed last night and allowing its consideration in opposition to 16 Google's Motion to Stage Discovery. 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 By ____________________________________ P.
