HUTNYAN IN SUPPORT OF SAMSUNG’S MOTION TO COMPEL PRODUCTION OF DOCUMENTS AND THINGS AND PROVIDE RESPONSIVE ANSWERS TO PROPOUNDED DISCOVERY Date: December 16, 2011 Time: 10:00 a.m. Place: Courtroom 5, 4th Floor Judge: Hon. Paul S. Grewal 26 27 28 Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK DECLARATION OF DIANE C. HUTNYAN 1 I, Diane C. Hutnyan, declare: 2 1. I am an partner at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP, counsel for Samsung 3 Electronics Co., Ltd., Samsung Electronics America, Inc. and Samsung Telecommunications 4 5 6 7 8 America, LLC (collectively, “Samsung”). I am licensed to practice law in the State of California. I submit this declaration in support of Samsung’s Motion to Compel Samsung to Produce Documents and Things and Provide Responsive Answers to Propounded Discovery. I have personal knowledge of the facts set forth in this declaration and, if called upon as a witness, I 9 could and would testify to the following facts. 10 2. Since October 19, 2011, the parties' non-lead trial counsel have met and conferred 11 weekly, except for the week of Thanksgiving. 12 13 14 15 Motorola-Related Documents 3. On October 5, 2011, Samsung issued Requests for Production directed to obtaining materials related to litigations between Apple and Motorola concerning the '002, '607, and '828 16 patents. Apple failed to respond substantively to these Requests, instead stating that it was 17 “willing to meet and confer.” The parties met and conferred regarding these requests on 18 November 16 and 30, 2011, and in written correspondence on November 10, 20, 27, and 28, and 19 December 3, 2011. 20 21 22 23 4. Apple finally produced most of these documents in our case for the first time on December 1, 2011; however, many documents were found to be missing, including John Elias’ witness statement, testimony and cross-examination; Jeffrey Brown’s witness statement, testimony 24 and cross examination; Martin Simmons’ witness statement; and Staff’s pre-hearing hearing brief 25 in the 750 Investigation. Furthermore, Apple produced only a redacted copy of significant 26 amounts of testimony from that investigation. The redactions demonstrate that the redacted 27 testimony is Apple, and not Motorola confidential information. Samsung informed Apple of the 28 -2- Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK DECLARATION OF DIANE C. HUTNYAN 1 deficiencies of which it was aware at the parties’ weekly December 7, 2011 meet and confer, and 2 asked Apple to confirm that the production was otherwise complete. Appl e has not furnished the 3 4 5 6 7 missing copies, nor made any representations about the completeness of the production. SuperClock and Mac OS 10.0 Source Code and Working Copies 5. During the October depositions of Apple’s design inventors, SuperClock and Mac OS 10.0 were identified as prior art for the ‘891 and ‘002 patents. On November 1, 2011, we 8 first requested the source code for Mac OS 10.0 and SuperClock, and a computer with a functional 9 copy of Mac OS 10.0. The parties subsequently met and conferred regarding these items on 10 November 2, 9, 16, and 30, and December 7, 2011 and through correspondence on November 8, 11 12 13 14 10, 15, 20 and December 3, 5, and 6, 2011. 6. Throughout these discussions, Apple always stated that it was "diligently searching" for these items, but never actually produced them or give a date certain by which it 15 would produce them. During the parties’ weekly December 7, 2011 meet and confer call, 16 Samsung’s counsel asked Apple’s counsel what had been done to search for these items. Apple’s 17 counsel again refused to provide any details, and stated only that it would further report what it 18 had done to search for these items on December 15, 2011. 19 20 21 22 7. Attached hereto as Exhibit 1 is a true and correct copy of excerpts from the transcript of the October 25, 2011 deposition of Bas Ording. 8. Attached hereto as Exhibit 2 is a true and correct copy of excerpts from the 23 transcript of the October 26, 2011 deposition of Steven Christensen. 24 Conception and Reduction to Practice of the D’889 Patent 25 26 27 28 9. Samsung's counsel took photographs of during inspections on October 20 and November 1, 2011, after which Apple’s counsel, over Samsung’s objection, took possession of Samsung’s memory cards with the photographs. -3- Later, Apple produced certain Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK DECLARATION OF DIANE C. HUTNYAN 1 images off the memory cards to Samsung, but with confidentiality designations. On December 6, 2 2011, following this Court's order (D.N. 447), Samsung’s counsel sent to Apple’s counsel a letter 3 4 5 6 7 8 requesting the immediate return of the memory cards containing its attorneys’ work product. Apple has neither returned these items nor responded to Samsung's letter. During the parties’ December 7, 2011 meet and confer session Apple’s counsel stated that it had “nothing to say” regarding when it would return these materials. 10. 9 Samsung has also sought de-designation of the photographs it took of during the October 20 and November 1, 2011 inspections, which Apple’s counsel 10 designated as “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – ATTORNEY’S EYES ONLY.” Attached hereto 11 12 13 14 15 as Exhibit 3 are true and correct copies of the photographs that Samsung took of during inspections on October 20 and November 1, 2011, which Apple had confiscated and subsequently produced in this action, Bates labeled APLNDC-X000005851-5887. 11. In a letter dated November 22, 2011, Samsung’s counsel explained to Apple that 16 the “HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL – ATTORNEY’S EYES ONLY” designation was improper 17 because to the United States 18 Patent and Trademark Office during the prosecution of the D’889 patent. A true and correct 19 20 21 22 copy of this letter is attached hereto as Exhibit 4. The parties further discussed this issue at the November 30, 2011 meet and confer session, and by letter dated December 3, 2011. 12. In a letter dated December 6, 2011, Apple’s counsel declined to de-designate any 23 photographs other than the ones that were actually submitted to the patent office. During the 24 parties’ weekly December 7, 2011 meet and confer, Apple’s counsel indicated that designation 25 was appropriate because 26 . 27 28 -4- Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK DECLARATION OF DIANE C. HUTNYAN 1 13. This Court's November 16, 2011 Order (D.N. 398) required Apple to stipulate to 2 certain matters regarding photographs related to 3 4 5 6 7 . Samsung's counsel sent Apple's counsel a letter dated November 21, 2011 reminding Apple of its obligations. 14. On November 28, 2011, Apple’s counsel finally sent to Samsung’s counsel a letter in which Apple’s counsel purported to satisfy the Court’s ordered stipulations. In this letter, Apple stipulated that it had produced the highest quality photographs of that it 8 possesses, and represented that these photographs are the same as the ones attached as Exhibit 8 to 9 the Declaration Erik J. Olson in Opposition to Samsung's Motion to Compel Apple to Produce 10 Documents and Things ("Olson Decl."). A true and correct copy of this letter, with attached 11 12 13 14 15 stipulations, is attached hereto as Exhibit 5. Apple has conceded that the photographs of in Exhibit 8 to the Olson Declaration are not confidential, as they were the ones sent to the Patent Office. 15. However, the Olsen Decl., including these photographs, was filed under seal. Apple's November 28, 2011 letter also described its search process for higher 16 quality photographs of In a letter dated November 29, 2011, Samsung’s 17 counsel pointed out several deficiencies and requested that Apple supplement its searches. A 18 true and correct copy of that letter is attached hereto as Exhibit 6. 19 20 21 22 16. At the parties' December 7, 2011 meet and confer, Apple admitted that despite its November 28 stipulation, it had not yet produced the photographs contained in Exhibit 8 to the Olson Declaration to Samsung. Those photographs, to my knowledge, have still not been 23 produced. Moreover, Apple's counsel stated that it still had no updates regarding its search 24 process for high quality photographs of 25 26 27 28 17. . In a letter dated November 8, 2011, Samsung’s counsel requested, inter alia, CAD drawings and model shop work orders associated with of that letter is attached hereto as Exhibit 7. . A true and correct copy Regarding these items, the parties met and -5- Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK DECLARATION OF DIANE C. HUTNYAN 1 conferred on November 30, 2011, and exchanged letters on November 10, 20, 21, and December 2 3, 2011. 3 4 5 18. was not sure if model shop work orders existed, but it had located CAD drawings of Apple, however, refused to explain its search process, produce the CAD drawings at 6 7 During the parties’ meet and confer call on December 7, 2011, Apple stated that it that time, or explain why the production of the CAD drawings would be delayed. Apple also 8 failed to respond to Samsung’s request for model shop records. 9 19. 10 11 12 13 14 15 . 16 17 Design Patent Prior Art 18 19 20 21 20. Samsung has requested the following materials related to Apple's asserted design patents: (a) ; (b) ; (c) 22 ; (d) 23 24 documents, models, and prototypes relating to the 1989 flat panel display associated with Apple’s 25 “Brain Box”; (e) documents, models, and prototypes relating to Apple’s Cinema Display; and (f) 26 complete, un-redacted sketchbooks from the inventors of Apple’s asserted design patents. 27 28 -6- Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK DECLARATION OF DIANE C. HUTNYAN 21. 1 Many of these requests have been outstanding for over a month. In all cases, 2 Apple has failed to produce any items or provide a date certain by which it would do so, or even 3 4 5 6 7 explain to Samsung what, if anything, it is doing to search for these items. During the December 7, 2011 meet and confer session, Apple's counsel stated that these requests were “peripheral” in nature. 22. 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 23. Attached hereto as Exhibit 8 are true and correct copies of documents produced by Apple in this action, Bates labeled APLNDC-NCC00000267-273. 24. Attached hereto as Exhibit 9 are true and correct copies of documents produced by 16 Apple in this action, Bates labeled APLNDC0000036646, 36657, 36892, 37167 and 37177. 17 25. A true and correct copy of the relevant portions of the transcript of the October 27, 18 2011 deposition of Eugene Whang is attached hereto as Exhibit 10. 19 20 26. in a letter to Apple’s counsel dated November 8, 2011, a true and 21 22 correct copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 11. The parties subsequently met and 23 conferred to discuss these items on November 9, 16, and 30, 2011, and exchanged letters on 24 November 10, 15, and 20, and December 3 and 6, 2011. 25 26 27. Attached hereto as Exhibit 12 is a true and correct copy of a document produced by Apple in this action, Bates labeled APLNDC0001205801. 27 28 -7- Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK DECLARATION OF DIANE C. HUTNYAN 1 28. 2 3 4 5 6 7 A true and correct copy of that letter is attached hereto as Exhibit 13. The parties subsequently met and conferred to discuss these test reports on November 9, 16, and 30, 2011, and exchanged letters on November 8, 10, 15, 20, and December 3 and 6, 2011. 29. As of the parties’ most recent meet and confer session on December 7, 2011, Apple 8 claimed that it was still “diligently searching” for these items, while refusing to describe its search 9 process or give a date certain by which these items would be produced. Apple also admitted that 10 it had not conducted any non-electronic searches for these items, despite the fact that Samsung had 11 12 13 14 asked for models and prototypes relating to 30. . In a letter dated November 1, 2011, Samsung’s counsel requested that Apple produce documents and things relating to Apple’s 1989 flat panel display associated with the 15 "Brain Box." 16 31. In a letter dated November 8, 2011, Samsung’s counsel asked for CAD drawings, 17 models, prototypes, and other items related to Apple Cinema Display. 18 19 20 21 22 32. The parties met and conferred regarding these items on November 9, 16, and 30, 2011, and exchanged letters on November 10, 15, and 20, and December 3 and 6, 2011. 33. At the parties’ December 7, 2011 meet and confer call, Apple reiterated that it was still searching for documents and things relating to the 1989 flat panel display, but refused to 23 explain its search process or give a date certain by which it would produce these items. During 24 the call, Apple also stated for the first time that it would only agree to produce the final CAD 25 drawings of Apple Cinema Display, and not the notebooks, diagrams, models, prototypes, and 26 27 28 other related items that Samsung originally requested. Apple refused to explain its position or what it had undertaken to search for these materials. -8- Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK DECLARATION OF DIANE C. HUTNYAN 1 34. Apple has not produced the requested documents or things relating to the flat panel 2 display or Apple Cinema Display, including even the final CAD drawings that it promised to 3 4 5 6 7 produce. 35. Attached hereto as Exhibit 14 is a true and correct copy of page 144 from the book Appledesign: The Work of the Apple Industrial Design Group by Paul Kunkel (with photographs by Rick English), New York, Graphis, 1997, introduced as Exhibit 1175, during the 8 November 8, 2011 deposition of Douglas Satzger, which depicts the 1989 flat panel display 9 associated with the "Brain Box." 10 11 12 13 14 36. In its November 1, 2011 letter, counsel for Samsung asked for original, unredacted design sketchbooks. Samsung followed up in a letter on November 8, 2011, and further met and conferred with Apple on November 9 and 16, 2011. At the parties’ December 7, 2011 meet and confer session, Apple represented that it would provide more information from the sketchbooks, 15 but would still redact the portions that it deemed irrelevant. 16 37. Attached hereto as Exhibit 15 is a true and correct copy of excerpts from the 17 transcript of the October 20, 2011 deposition of Peter Russell-Clarke. 18 19 20 21 22 23 38.

Attached hereto as Exhibit 17 is a true and correct copy of excerpts from the transcript of the October 24, 2011 deposition of Matthew Rohrbach (36:24-37:10). 40. Attached hereto as Exhibit 18 is a true and correct copy of excerpts from the 24 transcript of the November 4, 2011 deposition of Christopher Stringer. 25 26 41.

HUTNYAN 1 42. Attached hereto as Exhibit 20 is a true and correct copy of Apple Inc.'s Second 2 Amended Objections and Responses to Samsung's Interrogatory No. 7 to Apple Relating to 3 4 5 6 7 Apple's Motion for a Preliminary Injunction, served September 30, 2011. Prior Deposition Testimony of Apple Employee-Inventors 43. During the parties’ October 19, 2011 meet and confer, Samsung’s counsel requested that Apple produce prior deposition transcripts for inventor witnesses who testified in 8 their capacities as Apple employees. Samsung’s counsel memorialized this discussion in a letter 9 dated October 21, 2011, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 21. The parties further 10 met and conferred on the relevance of prior testimony of inventors on October 26, November 2, 9, 11 12 13 14 16, 30, and December 7, 2011, as well as in written correspondence dated November 3, 2011, November 10, 2011, November 15, 2011, and November 20, 2011. Apple has agreed to produce transcripts from prior cases having a "technological nexus" to the patents-in-suit, but it has 15 narrowly defined that term. Apple has refused to produce these deposition transcripts or to 16 exchange a list of transcripts that would allow the parties to work together to determine which 17 transcripts might be irrelevant. 18 Apple's Failure to Hold a Lead Counsel Meet and Confer 19 20 21 22 44. In its November 20, 2011 letter, Samsung's counsel requested dates for a lead counsel meet and confer. During the parties' November 30, 2011 meet and confer session, Apple first stated that Harold McElhinny, its lead counsel, was available for an in person meet and confer 23 on December 5-7, 2011. However, Samsung's lead counsel, Charles K. Verhoeven, was then in 24 trial in Washington, D.C., and was not available for an in-person meet and confer at that time. 25 Mr. Verhoeven is not scheduled to be back in California until December 19, 2011. 26 27 28 45. On December 5, 2011, Apple's counsel sent through email a proposed Stipulated Motion for Administration Relief regarding Telephonic Meet-and-Confer. On December 6, -10- Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK DECLARATION OF DIANE C. HUTNYAN 1 2011, Samsung counter-proposed that Apple join in stipulating to relieve both parties from the "in 2 person" requirement. Attached hereto as Exhibit 22 is a true and correct copy of Apple's 3 4 5 6 7 Stipulated Motion with Samsung's Proposed Revisions. Apple refused to agree to Samsung's Proposed Revisions, and instead sought a one-time exception to the in-person meet and confer requirement for itself, which was granted by this Court (D.N. 472). 46. In a December 10, 2011 letter, Samsung's counsel sought a telephonic lead counsel 8 meet and confer to discuss both parties' issues, and noted that although the Court had excused 9 Apple from conducting an in-person lead counsel meet and confer, the Court had not excused 10 Apple entirely from holding a lead counsel meet and confer. 11 12 13 14 15 47. In a December 11, 2011 email, Apple's counsel stated that this offer would be impossible due to Mr. McElhinny's travel schedule, and denied that it had any obligation to meet and confer. A true and correct copy of this email is attached hereto as Exhibit 23. I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States that the foregoing is 16 true and correct. 17 Executed in Los Angeles, California on December 12, 2011. 18 19 20 21 /s/ Diane C.
