IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS TYLER DIVISION EOLAS TECHNOLOGIES § INCORPORATED and THE REGENTS § OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA § § Plaintiffs, § § vs. § § ADOBE SYSTEMS INC., AMAZON.COM § INC., CDW CORPORATION, CITIGROUP § INC., THE GO DADDY GROUP, INC., § GOOGLE INC., J.C. PENNEY § CORPORATION, INC., STAPLES, INC., § YAHOO! INC., and YOUTUBE, LLC., § § Defendants. § CASE NO. 6:09-CV-00446-LED JURY TRIAL JOINT MOTION TO CORRECT JUDGMENT PURSUANT TO RULES 59(e) AND 60(a) McKool 443728v2 Plaintiffs Eolas Technologies Incorporated (“Eolas”) and The Regents of the University of California (“UC”) (collectively “Plaintiffs”) and Defendants Amazon.com Inc., Google Inc., J.C. Penney Corporation, Inc., Yahoo! Inc., and YouTube, LLC (collectively “Defendants”) respectfully file this Joint Motion to Correct Judgment Pursuant to Rules 59(e) and 60(a).1 I. ARGUMENT On February 13, 2012, the Court entered judgment. In this Motion, the parties submit two grounds for amending that judgment. First, the Court’s judgment does not dispose of Defendants’ counterclaims, with the exception of their counterclaims for invalidity. Second, prior to the jury’s verdict, Plaintiffs entered into settlements with Adobe Systems, Inc., CDW Corporation, and Staples, Inc. See Dkt. Nos. 1361, 1365, and 1359, respectively. In light of the foregoing, the parties respectfully move the Court to amend its judgment by dismissing each of Defendants’ counterclaims and revising the list of named parties to account for the pre-verdict settlements. II. CONCLUSION Based on the foregoing, the parties respectfully request that the Court correct its “final” judgment entered in this case, replacing it with a judgment naming only Defendants Amazon.com Inc.; Google Inc.; J.C. Penney Corporation, Inc.; Yahoo! Inc.; and YouTube, LLC and stating that Plaintiffs’ claims for infringement are dismissed with prejudice based on Defendants’ invalidity affirmative defense and Defendants’ counterclaims other than for invalidity are hereby dismissed without prejudice as moot. 1 Plaintiffs have filed a Motion for Judgment as a Matter of Law Under Rule 50(b) that the Patents-in-Suit Are Not Invalid, or in the Alternative for a New Trial Under Rule 59. This Motion to Correct Judgment in no way modifies or pertains to that Motion or the relief sought in that Motion. 1 McKool 443728v2 Dated: May 3, 2012 Respectfully Submitted, MCKOOL SMITH, P.C.
