UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO STC.UNM, Plaintiff, v. INTEL CORPORATION, Defendant. Civil No. 10-CV-01077-RB-WDS STC'S MOTION TO COMPEL This motion is necessitated by Intel's refusal to produce any discovery on its products in development. Intel has taken this position despite the fact that there is no research and development exception for infringement. Patent infringement is a strict liability offense: intent and magnitude are not factors. Thus, Intel's research and development activities are subject to an infringement determination by a jury, and are most certainly discoverable at this juncture in the case. Accordingly, STC's motion should be granted, and Intel should be compelled to produce discovery regarding its development of future products. 1 Dated: March 22, 2011 Respectfully submitted, /s/ Steven R. Pedersen Rolf O. Stadheim Joseph A. Grear George C. Summerfield Keith A. Vogt Steven R. Pedersen STADHEIM & GREAR, LTD. 400 N.
