Apple, Inc. v. Samsung Elecs. Co., et al., No. 11-cv-1846-LHK (N.D. Cal.)
I write in response to your January 17, 2012 letter concerning Apple’s objection to Samsung’s
disclosed expert Samuel Lucente.” As an excuse for raising this issue so long after his
December 13, 2011 disclosure (and after Samsung already satisfied Apple’s initial objections),
you claim that Mr. Lucente’s ownership interest in two U.S. patents “only recently surfaced.” In
truth, U.S. Patent No. 6,583,800 is expressly listed on the curriculum vitae we provided with Mr.
Lucente’s disclosure more than a month ago -- and U.S. Patent No. 7,559,039 is a continuation in
part to the 6,583,800 patent, as clearly stated on its face.
We are at a loss as to why Apple believes it is entitled to the information requested in your letter,
because it is irrelevant to the question of Mr. Lucente’s disclosure under the protective order.
In order to conclude this issue and get beyond Apple’s serial objections, however, Mr. Lucente
confirms that he maintains his ownership interest, and he has not assigned any part of his interest
to any third party. There are two foreign counterparts, Japanese Patent No. 4878714 and Chinese
Patent No. 1192312 C, and there is a pending European Patent Office application.
