Lulu Enterprises, Inc. v. N-F Newsite, LLC et al Doc. 107 Case 5:07-cv-00347-D Document 107 Filed 10/12/2007 Page 1 of 3 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA WESTERN DIVISION NO. 5:07-cv-00347-D LULU ENTERPRISES, INC., Plaintiff, vs. HULU, LLC, et al., Defendants. DEFENDANT HULU, LLC'S MOTION IN LIMINE TO EXCLUDE PLAINTIFF'S SURVEY AND FOCUS GROUP DECLARATIONS AND REPORTS Defendant, Hulu, LLC ("Hulu") hereby moves the Court, pursuant to Rules 6(d) and 16(f) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and the Scheduling Order of the Court, for an order prohibiting Plaintiff Lulu Enterprises, Inc. from offering purported expert evidence related to surveys and focus groups in support of its Motion for Preliminary Injunction. In particular, on October 12, 2007, Plaintiff filed and served survey evidence in the form of the Declaration of Hal L. Poret, and has orally given notice that it intends to submit an additional but different expert report in the near future. This last minute evidence should be excluded. Plaintiff failed to submit these declarations with its Motion for Preliminary Injunction, as required by Rule 6(d). Plaintiff failed to timely produce any survey or focus group report in support of its Motion for Preliminary Injunction during the expedited discovery period, or even before the close of briefing. As set forth in its memorandum of law, filed contemporaneously herewith, Plaintiff's belated presentation of this evidence significantly prejudices Hulu.

Poret and any other such purported expert evidence in support of its Motion for Preliminary Injunction. This the 12th day of October, 2007. /s/ Hayden J. Silver, III Hayden J.
