TO JOIN GOOGLE'S MOTION TO LIMIT DISCOVERY AND FOR SCHEDULING ORDER Defendants ("Oversee"),, LLC ("Sedo") and Dotster, Inc. ("Dotster") (collectively, the "Joining Defendants") by and through counsel, respectfully request to join Google's Motion to Limit Discovery and For Scheduling Order. In support of this request, Joining Defendants state as follows: On May 18, 2009, co-defendant Google Inc. ("Google") filed a Motion to Limit Discovery and For Scheduling Order. In sum, Google seeks a structured case management schedule that will allow for limited discovery and summary adjudication of the single legal issue that will dispose of Plaintiffs' only economically viable claim: whether Google can be liable under the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, 15 U.S.C. 1125(d)("ACPA"). Like Google, the Joining Defendants anticipate filing their own dispositive motions that will resolve a significant portion, if not all, of the plaintiffs' cases against each of them. Accordingly, the Joining Defendants join in Google's motion and request that the Court: (1) issue a discovery order that limits discovery to the issues raised in the defendants' summary judgment motions; and (2) adopt a discovery and summary judgment briefing schedule consistent with the time intervals requested in Google's motion.
