John V. Picone III March 1, 2017 jpicone@hopkinscarley.com T. 408.299.1388 F. 408.938.6219 Submitted Via ECF United States District Judge Haywood S. Gilliam, Jr. United States District Court for the Northern District of California 450 Golden Gate Avenue Courtroom 10, 19th Floor San Francisco, CA 94102 Re: IXI Mobile (R&D) Ltd., et al. v. Samsung Elecs. Co Ltd., et al, Case No. 15-cv- 03752-HSG; IXI Mobile (R&D) Ltd., et al. v. Blackberry Limited, et al., Case No. 15-cv-03754-HSG; IXI Mobile (R&D) Ltd., et al. v. Apple Inc., Case No. 15-cv-03755-HSG Dear Judge Gilliam: Pursuant to Your Honor's Order Continuing Stay entered on January 7, 2016 (Dkt. No. 126), the parties provided an update to Your Honor on December 28, 2016 (Dkt. No. 128) with respect to the status of the inter-partes review ("IPR") of the three patents-at-issue in the above- captioned proceeding. As we advised Your Honor at that time, on December 21, 2016, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board ("PTAB") issued its Final Written Decisions in the IPR proceedings that found unpatentable all of the challenged claims upon which IPR was instituted in the three patents-at-issue. Plaintiffs have subsequently filed notice of appeal of the PTAB's Final Written Decision regarding one of the patents, U.S. Patent No. 7,039,033. The parties submit the cases should remain stayed pending this appeal, and propose that they provide the Court with an update within seven days of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit's ruling on the merits of the appeal. Sincerely, HOPKINS & CARLEY A Law Corporation /s/John V. Picone, III John V. Picone III cc: Counsel of Record (via ECF) 614\1459324.1
