Samsung’s Reply be filed on or before Monday, February 6, 2012; 8 3. Hearing before Judge Koh occur on Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 1:30 p.m., or 9 10 such other time thereafter as the Court may calendar. Shortened time is necessary because Samsung is seeking to supplement its invalidity 11 contentions to include five additional prior art references related to five of Apple’s eight patents 12 prior to the March 8, 2012 close of fact discovery. Samsung’s motion seeks to include 5 13 important prior art references that challenge the validity of Apple’s patents. As described in 14 detail in its motion, Samsung has diligently investigated and pursued these prior art references, 15 and Apple is not prejudiced because it had prior notice of these references. 16 If Samsung’s Motion to Supplement Its Invalidity Contentions were decided according to 17 the schedule set forth in Local Rule 7-2 and 7-3, Apple’s opposition would not be due until 18 February 9, 2012; Samsung’s reply would not be due until February 16, 2012, and a hearing would 19 be scheduled no sooner than May 2012 (based on the Court's comments at the conclusion of the 20 Markman Hearing). 21 Counsel for Samsung Contacted Apple on January 26, 2012 and requested that it stipulate 22 to a shortened briefing schedule on its Motion to Supplement Its Infringement Contentions. 23 Apple did not respond to this request. 24 CONCLUSION 25 Samsung has shown good cause why the Court should grant this Motion. For the 26 foregoing reasons, Samsung respectfully requests that the Court grant Samsung’s Motion to 27 Shorten Time For Briefing and Hearing On Samsung’s Motion to Supplement Its Invalidity 28 Contentions. 02198.51855/4572086.1 -1- Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK SAMSUNG’S MOTION TO SHORTEN TIME 1 2 DATED: January 26, 2012 3 QUINN EMANUEL URQUHART & SULLIVAN, LLP 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 By /s/ Victoria F.
