Grewal in Courtroom 5, United States District 5 Court for the Northern District of California, Robert F. Peckham Federal Building, 280 South 1st 6 Street, San Jose, CA 95113, Defendants Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., Samsung Electronics 7 America, Inc., and Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (collectively “Samsung”) shall 8 and hereby do move the Court for an order to shorten time for briefing and hearing Samsung’s 9 motion to compel documents and things and Samsung’s motion to permit expert Itay Sherman to 10 review design materials. This motion is based on this notice of motion and supporting 11 memorandum; the supporting declaration of Diane C. Hutnyan; and such other written or oral 12 argument as may be presented at or before the time this motion is taken under submission by the 13 Court. 14 15 RELIEF REQUESTED Samsung seeks an to shorten time for briefing and hearing Samsung’s motion to compel 16 documents and things and Samsung’s motion to permit expert Itay Sherman to review design 17 materials. 18 19 December 12, 2011 20 QUINN EMANUEL URQUHART & SULLIVAN, LLP 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 By /s/ Victoria F. Maroulis Charles K. Verhoeven Kevin P.B. Johnson Victoria F. Maroulis Michael T. Zeller Attorneys for SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS CO., LTD., SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS AMERICA, INC., and SAMSUNG TELECOMMUNICATIONS AMERICA, LLC 28 Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK 1 MEMORANDUM 2 In accordance with Local Rules 6-1(b) and 6-3, Samsung moves the Court to shorten 3 time for the briefing and hearing schedule for its concurrently filed Motion to Compel and Motion 4 to Permit Itay Sherman to Review Design Materials. 5 A shortened briefing schedule is necessary because following the Court’s regular briefing 6 7 schedule would result in a hearing date of January 23, 2011 (1) depriving Samsung of information 8 it needs for its claim construction briefing due on December 22, 2011; (2) allowing Apple to keep 9 delaying production of a great deal of other time-sensitive, highly relevant materials for another 10 month, depriving Samsung of opportunities to conduct follow-on discovery that will allow it to 11 prepare for further depositions and other events in the case; and (3) preventing Samsung’s expert, 12 Itay Sherman, from seeing confidential documents needed for him to prepare his expert analysis 13 14 and report. Also, the Court is already hearing discovery motions on the date proposed by Samsung. 15 16 Judicial economy would be served as the Court and the parties will be present. Samsung and 17 Apple have been negotiating these issues for weeks and Apple is already well aware of the basis 18 for these motions. 19 20 Finally, the production of these vital documents, things and other information has already been delayed by difficulties in scheduling an in-person lead counsel meet and confer1 and Apple’s 21 22 unreasonable refusal to stipulate to the same relief from the in-person lead counsel meet-and- 23 confer requirement as it obtained for itself (not to mention its refusal to conduct any lead counsel 24 meet and confer on Samsung’s discovery issues until tomorrow, after this motion needed to be 25 filed to match the briefing schedule set by the Court with respect to Apple’s motion). (Hutnyan 26 27 28 1 Mr. Verhoeven is at trial in Washington, D.C. until December 19 and, according to Apple’s counsel, Mr. McElhinny is out of the country until December 13, 2011. (Hutnyan Decl. ¶ 5.) -2- Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK MOTION TO SHORTEN TIME 1 Decl. ¶ 4.) Further, Apple rejected Samsung’s request that Apple agree to a shortened briefing and 2 hearing schedule. (Id.) Samsung requests a schedule conforming to the already existing schedule 3 4 for Apple’s Motion to Compel: 1. Apple’s opposition to Samsung’s Motion to Compel and Motion to Permit Itay Sherman to 5 6 Review Design Materials by December 14, 2011; 7 2. No reply; and 8 3. The hearing to take place on December 16, 2011. 9 10 11 CONCLUSION Samsung has shown good cause why the Court should grant this Motion. For the foregoing reasons, Samsung respectfully requests that the Court grant Samsung’s 12 Motion to Shorten Time for Briefing and Hearing on Samsung’s discovery motions. 13 14 DATED: December 12, 2011 Respectfully submitted, 15 16 QUINN EMANUEL URQUHART & SULLIVAN, LLP 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 By /s/ Victoria F.
