Apple v. Samsung Elecs. Co. et al., Case No. 11-cv-1846 LHK (N.D. Cal.)
I write in response to your April 24 letter regarding Apple's supposed compliance with part B.1.
of the April 12 order.
Apple suggests that it has already fully complied with part B.1 of the April 12 order, but many
items have obviously been excluded. First, nothing in the Court's Order permits Apple to
exclude deposition transcripts from related proceedings dated after the discovery cutoff in this
action, or a given witness's deposition in this action. In direct contrast to Apple's position – and
explicitly rejecting the previous limitations Apple had unilaterally added to the terms of the
December 22 order – the Court ordered Apple to produce "all deposition transcripts of Apple
employees, testifying in their employee capacity, from actions bearing a technological nexus to
this case." Dkt. 867 at 10 (emphasis added). Second, the list in your letter appears to be missing
many other responsive transcripts. For example, Investigation of Certain Mobile Devices And
Related Software (Apple v. Motorola), 337-TA-750 (ITC) (the "750 Investigation") bears a
technological nexus to this action because it involves the ‘828 and ‘607 patents, but Apple's
production from that Investigation does not include deposition transcripts from a single named
inventor of the ‘828 and ‘607 patents. Though it is not Samsung's responsibility to identify the
responsive materials from these related proceedings, Apple's production of relevant materials
from these proceedings must, at a minimum, include all deposition transcripts from the named

inventors of the patents in common and any related patents. Third, Apple's list fails to include
any deposition transcripts from the 796 Investigation. Apple's compliance with section B.1.
cannot be complete until those materials have been produced in full. Please ensure that all Apple
employee transcripts from that case are produced by April 27.
Also, Samsung rejects Apple's demand that Samsung identify the individuals it wishes to depose
pursuant to the April 12 Court Order by tomorrow. Nothing in the Court's order requires
Samsung to identify these witnesses by that date. In fact, the Order implicitly assumes
Samsung's identifications may come later than this, as Apple's deadline for production is April
27. And, as discussed above, Apple's production of employee deposition transcripts remains
woefully incomplete. Samsung expects Apple to comply fully by the Court's April 27 deadline,
and it will then inform Apple, when appropriate, of the individuals it wishes to depose.
Your letter also attempts to limit the individuals that Samsung may depose to the Apple
employees whose transcripts are now belatedly being produced. This is improper; there is no
such limitation in the Court's order.
Again, Apple needs to stop demanding things of Samsung and put its energies into complying, in
full, with the Court's order. Apple and its counsel should be fully capable of complying with the
Court's directive in good faith without further discussion. Samsung reserves its right to move for
sanctions or other relief in the event that Apple's production is deficient.

RE: Apple v. Samsung Co., Case No. 11-cv-1846 LHK (N.D. Cal.): Correspondence re
April 12 Court Order
I wanted to get right back to you to clear up what appear to be a few misunderstandings on Samsung's part.
First, the list attached to my letter to you of earlier today is a subset of the deposition transcripts produced by
Apple pursuant to the April 12 Order. Your team is directed to Apple's productions of April 17 and 20, 2012 at
APLNDC003107336-3122498 and APLNDC-Y0000239399-251389.
Second, in producing deposition transcripts pursuant to the April 12 Order Apple did not re-produce
duplicate copies of deposition transcripts Apple had already produced during the discovery period. For
example, Apple has not re-produced the Motorola ITC 750 deposition transcripts of John Elias
(APLNDC0001251403), Martin Grunthaner (APLNDC0001251230), Steven Hotelling
(APLNDC0001251506), Brian Huppi (APLNDC0001251998), Eric Jue (APLNDC0001246240), Chris Krah
(APLNDC0001248909), Chip Lutton (APLNDC0001249107), Josh Strickon (APLNDC0001244550), Boris
Teksler (APLNDC0001220501), or Wayne Westerman (APLNDC0001251285).
Third, the parties agreed on April 15, pursuant to your suggestion, that "796 deposition transcripts are
immediately deemed produced in this action." (Email from D. Hutnyan to M. Mazza dtd April 13, 2012, 3:36
p.m.) Therefore, Apple completed its production of ITC 796 deposition transcripts on that date.
There is nothing deficient about Apple's production of deposition transcripts last week pursuant to the April 12
Order. Please do not delay in advising us of any additional Apple employee depositions that Samsung requests
to be taken under the April 12 Order. We continue to request that you provide us with any and all names
