WI-LAN AND ERICSSON’S JOINT MOTION TO EXTEND MEDIATION DEADLINE On September 30, 2013, the Court ordered the parties to engage in post-trial mediation by November 1, 2013. In connection with an appeal of a related lawsuit now pending at the Federal Circuit, Plaintiff Wi-LAN Inc. and Defendants Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson and Ericsson Inc. (collectively, “Ericsson”) had previously scheduled a court-ordered mediation on November 19-20, 2013. The parties plan for such mediation to be directed to a possible resolution of the entire dispute between Wi-LAN and Ericsson, including this litigation, as all prior mediations have been.
