IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS TYLER DIVISION Eolas Technologies Incorporated, Plaintiff, vs. Adobe Systems Inc., Amazon.com, Inc., Apple Inc., Argosy Publishing, Inc., Blockbuster Inc., CDW Corp., Citigroup Inc., eBay Inc., Frito-Lay, Inc., The Go Daddy Group, Inc., Google Inc., J.C. Penney Company, Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co., New Frontier Media, Inc., Office Depot, Inc., Perot Systems Corp., Playboy Enterprises International, Inc., Rent-A-Center, Inc., Staples, Inc., Sun Microsystems Inc., Texas Instruments Inc., Yahoo! Inc., and YouTube, LLC, Defendants. § § § Civil Action No. 6:09-CV-00446-LED § § § § JURY TRIAL § § § § § § § § § § § § § PLAINTIFFS’ UNOPPOSED MOTION TO INCREASE THE COURT’S LIMIT OF DESIGNATED EXHIBITS FOR TRIAL Pursuant to the Court’s Standing Order Regarding Letter Briefs, dated August 12, 2011, each side in this case is limited to designating 250 exhibits for trial. For good cause, as allowed by the Standing Order, Plaintiffs respectfully request an increase of their limit of designated exhibits from 250 exhibits to 400 exhibits. In this case, Plaintiffs assert two patents against ten (10) remaining Defendants. Those Defendants provide access to a number of features alleged to be infringing on a number of accused websites. As Plaintiffs, Eolas and The Regents of the University of California bear the burden to prove infringement, both direct and indirect, willfulness, and damages. These elements of proof are document intensive. Although generally 250 exhibits is adequate for the \McKool 406367v1 1 presentation of evidence in a case, the number of Defendants remaining for trial against whom Plaintiffs must prove liability, wilfullness,1 and damages justifies in this case an increase in the limit of exhibits from 250 exhibits to 400 exhibits. The good cause standard set forth in the Court’s Standing Order is met here, where a limit of 400 exhibits—40 per Defendant—is a manageable number for the parties’ review and presentation of objections and is reasonable under the circumstances of this case. Defendants have advised Plaintiffs that they do not oppose Plaintiffs’ request for leave to designate 400 exhibits. For the foregoing reasons, Plaintiffs respectfully request that the Court grant their motion to increase the limit of Plaintiffs’ designated exhibits from 250 exhibits to 400 exhibits. 1 Plaintiffs allege willfulness against Defendants Adobe, Amazon, Citigroup, Google and Yahoo. \McKool 406367v1 2 Dated: January 5, 2012.
