Strawn LLP. 2. On August 25, 2010, in light of Judge Seeborg's August 24, 2010 order dismissing I am counsel of record for Plaintiffs and an associate with the law firm of Winston & Plaintiffs claim for misappropriation of business ideas, Plaintiffs asked Fusion Garage to concede that its motion for a renewed protective order had become moot and to withdraw that motion. It declined. A true and correct copy of the email exchange of counsel is Exhibit A to this declaration. 3. After Fusion Garage declined to concede mootness and to withdraw its motion, Plaintiffs sought a telephonic conference to identify the materials Fusion Garage was continuing to withhold (in order to determine the scope of the current discovery dispute) and to learn whether Fusion Garage would continue to refuse to produce source code and highly proprietary information even after a denial of the protective order motion. During the call on September 2, 2010, Fusion Garage was unable to give a final position, but asked counsel for Plaintiffs to put Plaintiffs' position in writing so that Fusion Garage could more effectively provide a response. Plaintiffs' counsel did so and asked for a response. Fusion Garage made no response. 4. Exhibit B to this declaration is a true and correct copy of the May 18, 2009 slip 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Winston & Strawn LLP opinion in Echostar Satellite LLC v.
