UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SAN JOSE DIVISION ELAN MICROELECTRONICS CORPORATION, Plaintiff and Counterclaim Defendant, v. APPLE INC., Defendant and Counterclaim Plaintiff. Case No. C-09-01531 RS (PVT) APPLE INC.'S UNOPPOSED MOTION TO SHORTEN TIME FOR ITS MOTION TO STRIKE PARAGRAPHS 26-34 OF THE CLAIM CONSTRUCTION DECLARATION OF ROBERT DEZMELYK JURY TRIAL DEMANDED Hon. Richard Seeborg APPLE'S UNOPPOSED MOTION TO SHORTEN TIME FOR ITS MOTION TO STRIKE 26-34 OF CLAIM CONSTRUCTION DECLARATION OF R. DEZMELYK Case No. C-09-01531 RS (PVT) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Apple respectfully submits this motion to shorten time with respect to its Motion to Strike Paragraphs 26-34 of the Claim Construction Declaration of Robert Dezmelyk filed concurrently herewith. The underlying dispute addressed in the motion concerns Elan's decision to file an expert declaration disclosing new opinions simultaneously with its opening claim construction brief and after the completion of claim construction discovery. Good cause exists for Apple's request to shorten time. A claim construction tutorial is scheduled for June 21, 2010 and a claim construction hearing is scheduled for June 23, 2010. Apple submits that it would benefit the Court and the parties to resolve Apple's motion to strike portions of Elan's claim construction expert declaration before the claim construction hearing. Apple therefore seeks to expedite the normal briefing schedule on this motion, so that the motion can be heard on June 21, 2010. Apple requested Elan's consent to an expedited schedule that would allow the motion to strike to be heard simultaneously with the claim construction tutorial. See Declaration of Nathan Greenblatt In Support Of Motion To Shorten Time ("Greenblatt Decl."), Exh. A (June 1, 2010 email from S. Mehta to S. DeBruine). Apple proposed to shorten Elan's time to file an opposition from 14 to 9 days, such that it would be due June 11, and to shorten its own time for a reply from 7 to 3 days, such that any reply would be due June 15. Under this schedule, the Court would have nearly a week before the June 21, 2010 tutorial to review the briefing and to determine whether disputed Paragraphs 26-34 of the declaration may be considered as evidence during the claim construction hearing. Elan agreed to a shortened schedule such that the motion be heard on June 21, 2010. However, Elan stated that June 11, 2010 is not a convenient date for its opposition and suggested that its opposition be due June 14 and Apple's reply be due June 16 or 17. Exh. B (June 2, 2010 email from S. DeBruine to S. Mehta). Apple does not object in principle to Elan's proposed schedule, should the Court find that this schedule provides sufficient time for the Court to review the papers in advance of the June 21, 2010 tutorial. APPLE'S UNOPPOSED MOTION TO SHORTEN TIME FOR ITS MOTION TO STRIKE 26-34 OF CLAIM CONSTRUCTION DECLARATION OF R. DEZMELYK 1 Case No. C-09-01531 RS (PVT) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 This requested time modification would have no effect on the schedule for this case. And although there have been five previous time modifications in this case, none are related to the present request. See D.I. 6, 11, 72, 77 and 97. Accordingly, Apple hereby requests an expedited briefing schedule on its Motion to Strike Paragraphs 26-34 of the Claim Construction Declaration of Robert Dezmelyk wherein Elan's opposition to that motion be filed on either June 11 or June 14, 2010 and Apple's reply, if any, be filed on either June 15 or June 17, 2010, depending on the Court's schedule.
