Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., Case No. 11-CV-01846-LHK (N.D. Cal)
We have now conducted several inventor depositions, and it is apparent that Apple is not
taking its discovery responsibilities seriously.
First, it appears that custodian interviews have not been conducted with each and every
inventor (see, e.g., LeMay dep. at 178:7-22). This is a basic necessity to confirm that Apple is
producing all relevant documents in their possession, custody, or control, and should have been
conducted long before their depositions. Please confirm that Apple will conduct such interviews
and produce all relevant documents found as a result of the interviews.
Next, it is apparent that Apple did not thoroughly search nor produce documents related
to the patents it asserts against Samsung. Below is a sampling of the deficiencies we have
identified. Please be prepared to discuss these, and Apple's inventor productions generally on
tomorrow's meet and confer.

Deposition of Stephen LeMay
Apple produced less than five documents from Stephen LeMay. This is not surprising
considering that, though he received a document retention notice, Mr. LeMay did not search for
documents (111:12-19), he did not search his emails (113:5-114:1), and he did not search the
humaninterface.apple.com server where he stores documents (119:17-21). Mr. LeMay's emails,
documents and documents stored on the server are relevant to this litigation. As Apple asserted
the ’163 patent against Samsung, Apple should have produced these documents.
Furthermore, Mr. LeMay testified that at some point, a document collection company
took an image of his hard drive. Therefore, relevant communications and emails are in the
possession of Apple's legal department or Morrison and Foerster. Please produce all documents
on Mr. LeMay's hard drive from the 2005-2007 timeframe, including any documents related to
Mr. LeMay's work on the Safari project immediately.
Deposition of John Elias
Mr. Elias identified many documents that have not been produced. Below is a sampling
of these documents:
• A spreadsheet demonstrating the different ownership shares in FingerWorks
• Legal documents describing the sale of FingerWorks to Apple (90:17-93:24)
• An invoice from and layout/design information provided to a Korean foundry
retained to manufacture a sensor chip in 1997 that was added to the FingerWorks
• An invoice from a Delaware company retained to assemble a sensor chip and
circuit board (116:9-116:25). Apple also possesses schematics for physical
exhibit 522 (Phalange) (124:14-125:4), and code for the prototype demonstrating
ellipse fitting via unitary transformation of the group covariance matrix of the
second moment (149:3-15:13).
Mr. Elias testified that he provided all of these documents to Apple's legal department.
Samsung has not identified these documents. Please provide the Bates numbers, or produce the
In addition to the documents Mr. Elias provided to Apple, he also testified that he has a
set of documents related to the ’828 patent. He also testified regarding a set of emails that was
provided to Apple in conjunction with the Quantum case. Please produce these immediately.
Please also produce any documents on Mr. Elias' old computer, that was collected by Apple
Deposition of Imran Chaudhri
Mr. Chaudhri is listed as an inventor on five Apple patents. Yet, his production is sorely
lacking. The following documents identified by Mr. Chaudhri have not been produced:
Mr. Chaudhri's previous deposition transcripts (5:14-7:6)1
All folders in the Aqua UI folder showing the conception, development, and
reduction to practice of the ’891 patent (16:5-18:7)
All files that Mr. Chaudhri produced or made available to Apple's counsel (19:1919:25)
Documents sufficient to show the date of release of Mac OS X (39:20-39:21)
All documents, including but not limited to source code, showing (a) the
development of the user interface of Mac OS X; and (b) any other documents
relating to the ’891 patent's implementation in Mac OS X (60:20-61:18).
Design documents and prototypes on the “human interface server” (145:25 –
Presentations of icons and layouts presented at the design team’s regular weekly
meetings, and any emails that include those presentations (243:13-245:7).
All we received for Mr. Chaudhri’s production were several dozen emails that were
irrelevant to the patents he invented. And almost none of them were from the time when Mr.
Chaudhri is claimed to have invented the patents. There were also no files produced that show
drafts of any icons, layouts, or any other design features found in the D334, D305, or D790
patents. For example, we received no Photoshop or Illustrator files and no presentations used in
design review meetings. Indeed, it appears that the only type of document reviewed was email,
and that review appears to be deficient.
Apple has failed to produce many of the inventors' previous deposition transcripts.
Deposition of Freddy Anzures
Mr. Anzures is listed as an inventor on the D305 patent, yet his production included no
documents showing images or drafts of the icons, screen layout, or other design features depicted
in that patent. Like Mr. Chaudhri’s production, Mr. Anzures’ documents consisted of several
dozen irrelevant emails, none of which predated the application date for the D305 patent — June
23, 2007. Indeed, Mr. Anzures testified that the project to create designs for the iPhone began
even earlier than that, in early 2005 (see, e.g., 57:20-58:16). Mr. Anzures also testified that he
regularly uses programs like Photoshop and Illustrator to create designs, yet Apple produced no
such files (4:17-5:2). Mr. Anzures testified that he saves design documents such as these on his
own machine as well as the Human Interface Server, and that other designers on the team do the
same (see, e.g., 112:6-113:18; 119:19-25). According to Mr. Anzures, the files are usually saved
either in a project folder or an individual designer’s folder on the server (115:1-11).
Like Mr. Chaudhri, Mr. Anzures also testified about presentations of icons and layouts
that are created for design review meetings. For example, Mr. Anzures testified that the design
depicted in D305 was part of an internal Apple design presentation (171:23-172:7). That
presentation, nor any other presentations were produced. Mr. Anzures’ also testified that emails
were often sent back and forth within the team as members helped create the icons found in the
D305 patent. No such emails were produced.
Mr. Anzures also testified that a number of icons as well as the dock in the D305 and
D334 patents were based on icons and features in Mac OS X Tiger. Nevertheless, we received no
documents regarding these prior Tiger designs from either Mr. Anzures' or Mr. Chaudhri's files
or any other design team files relating to the above patents.
Given the deficient document production for Mr. Anzures, it appears that Apple has
failed to attempt any reasonable search for documents, emails, presentations, or any other files
relevant to Mr. Anzures’ work on the D305 patent, either on his own computer or the Human
Interface Server. It is not plausible that Apple conducted a reasonable review of Mr. Anzures’
files and could not find a single sketch, rendering, draft, or image of any icon or other design
feature created by Mr. Anzures during the time he is claimed to have invented the D305 patent.
Please produce these documents immediately. Samsung reserves the right to re-depose
and/or seek any other relief from the Court as a result of Apple's failure to produce documents
relevant to the claims Apple asserts against Samsung.
