IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN APPLE INC., Plaintiff, v. Case No. 10-CV-661-BBC MOTOROLA INC. and MOTOROLA MOBILITY, INC. Defendants. MOTION TO WITHDRAWAL AS COUNSEL AND NOTICE OF WITHDRAWAL AS COUNSEL BY GODFREY & KAHN, S.C. The attorneys of Godfrey & Kahn, S.C., including James D. Peterson and Bryan J. Cahill, move to withdraw as counsel to the plaintiff, Apple Inc. The grounds for this motion are that a potential conflict of interest has arisen involving Godfrey & Kahn, S.C., and the plaintiff has engaged new local counsel. Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. is also filing motions to withdraw in Case Nos. 10-CV-662 and 11-CV-178. On September 19, 2011, Catherine Cetrangolo, of Boardman, Suhr, Curry & Field LLP filed a notice of appearance in Case No. 10-CV-662 (Dkt. No. 160) on behalf of the plaintiffs. We expect that Ms. Cetrangolo will file a notice of appearance in this case as it becomes necessary. The plaintiffs will continue to be represented by counsel from Tensegrity Law Group LLC, Covington & Burling LLP; and Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP. Because the plaintiffs will continue to be represented by qualified counsel, this motion should cause no prejudice to the defendants. Accordingly, Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. requests that the Court grant this motion to withdraw as counsel. All counsel are hereby notified that the attorneys and staff of Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. should no longer receive copies of documents filed or served in this matter. Dated: September 26, 2011 Respectfully Submitted, /s/ James Donald Peterson James Donald Peterson State Bar No. 1022819 GODFREY & KAHN, S.C. One East Main Street, Suite 500 P.O. Box 2719 Madison, WI 53701-2719 Telephone: (608) 257-3911 Facsimile: (608) 257-0609 6873866_1 2
