Close of fact discovery
Subject to the Court's calendar and as raised at the August 10, 2007 scheduling conference, the parties propose a date on or about February 22, 2008 1 for the Markman Hearing. Also, as raised at the scheduling conference, the parties requested clarification concerning the August 20, 2007 deadline to amend pleadings as listed in the Court's July 24, 2007 scheduling order. Discovery has just commenced and the parties were not required to provide discovery prior to August 20. Therefore, the Court clarified that a party may make a motion to amend the pleadings for good cause after August 20, particularly those that need a Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 9 basis for pleading and which basis may be determined during discovery.
At the 8/10/07 scheduling conference, the parties requested February 15 but have subsequently agreed that February 22 is the new proposed date for the Markman Hearing.
