Elan Microelectronics Corporation v. Apple, Inc.
ORDER PERMITTING ADDITIONAL BRIEFING AND CONTINUING HEARING. Motion Hearing set for 8/4/2011 01:30 PM in Courtroom 3, 17th Floor, San Francisco before Hon. Richard Seeborg. Signed by Judge Richard Seeborg on 7/11/11. (cl, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 7/11/2011)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
SAN JOSE DIVISION

No. C 09-01531 RS
ORDER PERMITTING ADDITIONAL
BRIEFING AND CONTINUING
Apple seeks leave to file an 11 page surreply in opposition to Elan’s motion for partial
summary judgment. Elan objects that the request is untimely, unwarranted, and excessive. In the
alternative, Elan requests permission to respond to the surreply. The parties are reminded that
effective advocacy often lies in distinguishing between that which is critical or important, and that
which is less so. Not every point perceived to be incorrect or irrelevant warrants a response.
Admittedly, however, it can be challenging for a party to anticipate with confidence what issues
may be of most concern to the court. Accordingly, despite significant skepticism that further
briefing will be of material assistance, Apple’s request is granted. Elan may file a response, not to
exceed 5 pages, no later than July 21, 2011. The hearing is continued to August 4, 2011 at 1:30 p.m.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
