(“Apple”) and defendants HTC Corporation, HTC America, Inc., One & Company Design, Inc. and HTC America Innovation, Inc. (collectively, “HTC”) submit this Joint Statement in accordance with Local Rule 81.2 (“Cases Transferred or Removed to This Court”). This patent infringement case is related to several other currently-pending cases before this court, including three stayed civil actions: Nos. 10-167-GMS; 10-544-GMS; and 11-611-GMS (collectively, the “Stayed Actions”). The present case originated in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. The Southern District of Florida granted HTC’s motion to sever and to transfer the action to this court.1 (D.I. 116). All parties to this action have been served. HTC filed an answer and first amended answer in the case prior to transfer to this court on August 3, 2012. (D.I. 102; 1 As explained in the transfer order, the posture of the Florida case was unique: Motorola Mobility, Inc. originally sued Apple, and Apple, in turn, asserted counterclaims against plaintiff as well as a second Motorola entity and several HTC entities. (See D.I. 116). D.I. 115). Apple responded to HTC’s counterclaims on September 7, 2012, and HTC has recently filed its responsive pleading. (D.I. 132; D.I. 135). The pleadings are now closed. HTC filed a motion to stay these proceedings on August 31, 2012. (D.I. 129). At this time, there are no pending matters requiring judicial attention. MORRIS JAMES LLP SHAW KELLER LLP /s/ Richard K.
