Case No. 11-cv-01846-LHK (PSG) DECLARATION OF MIA MAZZA IN SUPPORT OF APPLE’S MOTION TO SHORTEN TIME FOR BRIEFING AND HEARING ON APPLE’S MOTION TO COMPEL TIMELY PRODUCTION OF FOREIGNLANGUAGE AND OTHER DOCUMENTS IN ADVANCE OF RELATED DEPOSITIONS Date: Time: Place: Judge: February 1, 2012 10:00 a.m. Courtroom 5, 4th Floor Hon. Paul S. Grewal 27 28 MAZZA DECL. ISO APPLE’S MOTION TO SHORTEN TIME FOR BRIEFING AND HEARING ON APPLE’S MOT. TO COMPEL CASE NO. 11-CV-01846-LHK (PSG) sf-3099249 1 I, Mia Mazza, declare as follows: 2 1. I am a partner in the law firm of Morrison & Foerster LLP, counsel for Apple Inc. 3 (“Apple”). I am licensed to practice law in the State of California. Unless otherwise indicated, I 4 have personal knowledge of the matters stated herein or understand them to be true from 5 members of my litigation team. I make this Declaration in support of Apple’s Motion to Shorten 6 Time for Briefing and Hearing on Apple’s Motion to Compel Timely Production of Foreign- 7 Language and Other Documents in Advance of Related Depositions (“Motion to Compel”). 8 9 2. Apple expects to depose more than 40 Samsung witnesses in Korea in the next month, on nearly a daily basis between February 2 and March 2 (often with multiple depositions 10 per day). 11 3. As detailed in Apple’s Motion to Compel, Samsung has gone from producing no 12 documents to dumping tens of thousands of pages—mostly in Korean—on the eve of each 13 foreign-language deposition. For example, Samsung produced more than 44,000 pages of 14 Ah Young Kim’s Korean-language materials within the 40 hours preceding the deposition of that 15 witness, including 3,069 pages 40 minutes after the deposition began. 16 4. Due to the requirement of translation, it takes roughly twice as long to review 17 Korean-language documents and use them in preparation for deposition as it takes to review and 18 use English-language documents. 19 5. Apple has filed the Motion to Compel at its earliest opportunity after satisfying the 20 lead trial counsel meet and confer requirement. Samsung has not proposed an alternative 21 expedited schedule, and did not accept Apple’s request to stipulate to the schedule proposed by 22 Apple. 23 24 25 26 I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct. Executed this 27th day of January, 2012 at San Francisco, California. /s/ Mia Mazza Mia Mazza 27 28 MAZZA DECL. ISO APPLE’S MOTION TO SHORTEN TIME FOR BRIEFING AND HEARING ON APPLE’S MOT.
