John Beck Amazing Profits, LLC v. Google Inc. et al Doc. 78 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS MARSHALL DIVISION THE RODNEY A. HAMILTON LIVING TRUST AND JOHN BECK AMAZING PROFITS, LLC, INDIVIDUALLY AND ON BEHALF OF ALL OTHERS SIMILARLY SITUATED, PLAINTIFFS, V. (1) GOOGLE, INC.; AND (2) AOL, LLC DEFENDANTS. OPPOSITION TO MOTION TO STRIKE Plaintiff FPX, LLC hereby opposes Defendants' motion to strike portions of the declaration of Marc A. Fenster. The exhibits and statements referenced in Defendants' one-page motion to strike are properly admitted, and the motion should be denied. Paragraph No. 2 The documents attached to Mr. Fenster's declaration do in fact reflect Google's trademark policy. Google has further authenticated this policy with its own declarations in connection with its opposition to class certification. See Declaration of Kerry Barker, generally. Because the exhibits and statements in Mr. Fenster's declaration are consistent with those in Google's own declaration, Paragraph No. 2 should be admitted. Paragraphs Nos. 5-6 and Exhs. C and D Civil Action No. 2:09-cv-00151-TJW-CE CLASS ACTION COMPLAINT JURY TRIAL DEMANDED 3092-01 101105 Beck Opp Mt Strike.doc 1 Mr. Fenster's declaration regarding keyword searches are likewise admissible and not subject to a motion to strike. Because the fact of the search is apparent from the screenshots attached to Mr. Fenster's declaration, the statements of sufficient indicia of reliability to be admissible non-hearsay. Likewise, the allegations regarding inability to buy good through the websites appearing as sponsored links are not vague they are simple, verifiable empirical statements.1 If Google thought those statements were in any way false, they could easily rebut them. CONCLUSION For the reasons stated above, the motion to strike should be denied. Dated: November 5, 2010 Respectfully submitted, By: /s/ Nathan D. Meyer Marc A.
