I've got a motions hearing set in Function Media versus Google. It's 2:07-CV-279. 4 5 What says the plaintiff? MR. TRIBBLE: Your Honor -- Your Honor, good 6 CL 8 9 ernoon, ax Try b e for the plaintiff. Plaintiff is ready. THE COURT: MR. GILLAM: For the defendant? Gil Gillam, Charlie Verhoeven, 10 11 and Amy Candido for Google. We're ready. THE COURT: All right. Several matters to 12 13 a take up today. The first one is the motion to seal and close the courtroom. Tell me -- the way this is 14 15 ordinarily handled is that if there's some portion that comes up during the trial of the case that is -- you feel is necessary to close the courtroom, bring it to my attention, I'll do it. I'll give you a certain amount of time to, you know, identify those portions of the 16 17 18 20 21 22 23 24 25 record that need to be maintained under seal once -once you get your copies of the record, as well as whatever exhibits. I'll have the clerk, you know, hold the exhibits and not release the exhibits to the public for a certain after the trial, but what's the matter with that procedure? f7286c71-e4f7-4528-8dOO-7f9547aae420 Page 4 1 MR. VERHOEVEN: That procedure is perfect, 2 Your Honor. That's all we -- that's all we seek, and I 3 will point out that the parties have agreed for direct examination purposes to provide each other with a notice the day before of the exhibits that they intend to use. And we -- hopefully we can meet and confer that evening, next morning and -- and if there is an issue, present it to you with the most efficient and nondestructive manner possible. THE COURT: papers. I mean, I've -- I've read the 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 My -- my concern is that -- my real concern is 12 that my experience with this procedure has resulted in very limited periods of time that the courtroom has been closed because the courtroom is presumptively open. what I don't want to have happen is every third question, we have an interrupt the flow of the proceedings and -MR. VERHOEVEN: I hear you, Your Honor. We And 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 have no intent to do that, and we're perfectly happy with the procedures you've outlined and, you know, we filed -- we filed our motion, just by way of explanation, Your Honor, a few months -- a couple of months ago, I think. Hadn't exchanged exhibit lists. We just wanted to make sure that we had on the record this is a concern of ours. As long as we can work 20 21 22 23 24 25 f7286c71-e4f7-4528 - 8d00-7f9547aae420 Page 6 agreement says no exchange of exhibits for any witness 2 3 or demonstratives for cross witnesses. THE COURT: Well... I'm going to have to read 4 MR. VERHOEVEN: 5 this, Your Honor. I -- there may be a mistake. I thought we had reached agreement on that, but I think that's sort of a side issue THE COURT: Well -Don't need to take Your 6 7 8 9 MR. VERHOEVEN: 10 Honor's time on that. If we need to, we can address the efficient handling of exhibits -- hopefully the parties can work out an arrangement there. But what Your Honor has suggested in terms of handling what we believe to be trade secret information -- to protect Google's trade secret information, we would suggest would work. THE COURT: 11 12 13 14 15 16 f Well, that's -- that's the 17 procedure I'm going to adopt. And if it for some reason becomes unworkable during the course of the trial for whatever reason, lack of agreement as to how to implement it or whatever, I'll deal with that during the course of the trial. 18 19 20 21 22 So I guess for the purposes of the record, the motion is granted in part and denied in part to the extent I've just outlined. Next issue that I've got on my plate is f7286 c 71 - e4f7-4528-8d 00-7f9547aae420 11 23 24 I 25 Page 67 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 CERTIFICATION I HEREBY CERTIFY that the foregoing is a true and correct transcript from the stenographic notes of the proceedings in the above-entitled matter to the best of my ability.
