Microsoft Corporation v. Ronald Alepin Morrison & Foerster et al Doc. 33 Att. 5 Case 5:06-mc-80038-JF Document 33-6 Filed 03/22/2006 Page 1 of 30 March 18, 2006 By E-mail & First Class Mail Daniel M. Wall Christopher S. Yates Latham & Watkins LLP 505 Montgomery Street Suite 2000 San Francisco, CA 94111-2562 Dear Dan and Chris: Subpoenas served by Microsoft Corporation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1782 Your clients Oracle Corporation, Clifford Chance LLP, Daniel Harris and Ronald Alepin have filed objections to the subpoenas Microsoft Corporation has served upon them pursuant to 28 U.S.C. 1782, and filed a motion to quash those subpoenas. Based on our meet and confer session with you concerning your objections, I believe we agree that no modification of those subpoenas would eliminate all your objections to the subpoenas or moot your motion to quash. Nevertheless, in order to simplify the issues that the Court will need to address, Microsoft has decided to narrow the subpoenas at this time, because of our desire to obtain documents and deposition testimony on the most pressing issues promptly. We believe that these modifications will address many of your objections, particularly your objections that compliance would be burdensome. Specifically, Microsoft will narrow the scope of the subpoenas as follows: Requests 5 through 8 and Deposition Topics 5 through 8 will be narrowed to "... failure to comply with Articles 5(a) and 5(c) of the 2004 Decision, the Article 24(1) Decision or the SO" (that is, the references to "European Community competition laws" are deleted, and the reference to the 2004 Decision is narrowed to Articles 5(a) and 5(c) of that decision, which are the specific subject of the Commission's Article 24(1) Decision and Statement of Objections). The other requests, which focus upon "Interoperability Information," are already limited to matters related to compliance with Articles 5(a) and 5(c), since Microsoft's obligation to make available "Interoperability Information" is set forth in those provisions. Dockets.Justia.com Case 5:06-mc-80038-JF Document 33-6 -2- Filed 03/22/2006 Page 2 of 30 All requests will be narrowed to request only "Documents that contain, constitute or summarize any communication or correspondence ...." (that is, the references to "reflect, evidence or refer" will be replaced by "summarize"). Requests 4 and 8, and Deposition Topics 4 and 8, will be narrowed to "any other third party known or believed by you to have been retained by the Commission with respect to the subject matter of this Request" (that is, the underscored narrowing language is added). All requests in the subpoenas served upon Clifford Chance LLP, Daniel Harris and Ronald Alepin will be narrowed to replace "whether on behalf of Oracle, another client, or yourself" with "on behalf of Oracle in whole or in part" (that is, the references to other clients or yourself are deleted). I am attaching exemplars of the subpoenas in which these changes are indicated. If you believe that other changes are necessary to implement the intent of these modifications, please contact me and we can discuss that matter. Similarly, if you have any other questions concerning this letter, please contact me. Sincerely, William D. Iverson William D.
