IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS TYLER DIVISION § § § § § § § § § § § WI-LAN INC., Plaintiff, v. ALCATEL-LUCENT USA INC., et al. Defendants. Civil Action No. 6:10-cv-521-LED JURY TRIAL DEMANDED PLAINTIFF Wi-LAN INC.’S UNOPPOSED MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE MOTION FOR PARTIAL SUMMARY JUDGMENT UNDER SEAL In accordance with Local Rule CV-5(a)(7) and the Court’s Standing Orders, Plaintiff WiLAN Inc. (“Wi-LAN”) seeks an order permitting Wi-LAN to file under seal its Motion for Partial Summary Judgment filed under Dkt. 171, regarding Defendants Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson’s (“LME”), Ericsson Inc.’s (“EUS”), Sony Mobile Communications AB’s, (“SAB”), and Sony Mobile Communications (USA) Inc.’s (“SUS”) (collectively, the “Ericsson Defendants”) respective affirmative defenses of covenant not to sue and counterclaims for breach of contract. Because the Motion for Partial Summary Judgment contains highly confidential information belonging to Wi-LAN and the Ericsson Defendants, Wi-LAN requests leave to file this motion under seal. Counsel for Wi-LAN has conferred with counsel for Ericsson Defendants, and they do not oppose this motion. Public disclosure of this information would be harmful to the parties involved. 1 Dated: March 30, 2012 Respectfully submitted, By: /s/ John A.
