Tribble Cc: Edward DeFranco; Eugene Novikov; Carl Anderson; Jesse Geraci; Warren T. Burns; gil@gillamsmithlaw.com Subject: RE: Wagner Deposition Amy 1 Dockets.Justia.com We disagree with your proposal. Your proposed deadlines are unrealistic and prejudicial to Function Media in that your schedule has aubert motions due in less than a week and before any depositions, responses due one week after, and replies one week after that all while there will be literally 6 expert deposition, not including two more that will happen after the hearing (plus of course Christmas). Moreover, expert depositions have been delayed in large part because Google, and not FM, repeatedly requested extensions on the reports in the first place. Finally, we do not see a reason why the hearing has to happen on the 5th, and forcing a briefing schedule simply to fit a hearing date on the 5th does not make sense to us The urgency that you are showing on this issue now was not evident over the past weeks and months, and your offer of such a condensed schedule in the midst of depositions and Christmas so that the hearing can be on January 5 is prejudicial. We reiterate our offer for an agreed briefing schedule along the lines we offered on Wednesday so that there can be a hearing in advance of January 19. We'd very much like to agree on a briefing schedule here that accommodates everyone's timing. If you'd like to discuss this further, we are available for a meet and confer on Monday. Thanks, Justin ________________________________ From: Amy Candido [mailto:amycandido@quinnemanuel.com] Sent: Thu 12/10/2009 3:24 PM To: Justin A. Nelson; Joseph S. Grinstein; Max L. Tribble Cc: Edward DeFranco; Eugene Novikov; Carl Anderson; Jesse Geraci; Warren T. Burns; gil@gillamsmithlaw.com Subject: RE: Wagner Deposition Justin, We cannot agree to the schedule you propose. As I mentioned on our last call, we think it is important that any Daubert issues get resolved in advance of trial and final preparations for trial. In order to do that, we think that any Daubert issues should be heard at the January 5 hearing. Accordingly, we propose the following schedule for Daubert: Opening Briefs December 16 Opposition Briefs December 23 Reply Briefs December 30 Hearing January 5 Under this schedule, both parties would file opening briefs before the damages depositions and both parties would file opposition briefs after the damages depositions. Please let me know if Function Media will agree to this schedule. Thanks, Amy Original Message From: Justin A.
