We noticed Defendants removed the parties' agreement on the revised deadline for IXI's contentions. Since we accepted your proposal of IXI's contentions being due two weeks after the Court rules on IXI's motion, I assume we are in agreement there and think we can leave that out of the stipulation if you prefer. Please confirm if we are good to file the stipulation or otherwise let me know if Defendants have any additional comments.

Samsung / IXI v. Apple - 4:15-CV-03752-HSG (Lead Case) Seth – Let's do May 9 as it does appear to be the first date that works for all; please circulate a draft stip. Separately, while it was clear at the hearing that the Court agreed with the defendants' proposal on resolving any motion to amend the contentions before setting a schedule because adding potentially scores of new '033 claims would inject additional complexity into the case, should the Court grant your motion to amend, and reserving all rights to oppose that motion, it would seem to make sense that any ultimate deadline for amended contentions should be triggered by a ruling granting your motion – say, two weeks from any such ruling? 4 Buzz _______________________________ Harrison (Buzz) Frahn Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP 2475 Hanover Street Palo Alto, CA 94304 T: +1-650-251-5065 M: +1-650-255-5035 hfrahn@stblaw.com From: Seth Reich <sreich@caldwellcc.com> Sent: Monday, March 11, 2019 3:05 PM To: Rokach, David <drokach@kirkland.com>; Harrison (Buzz) Frahn <hfrahn@stblaw.com>; Jin, Bryan <Bryan.Jin@stblaw.com>; Brown, Brandon <bhbrown@kirkland.com>; Arovas, Greg <garovas@kirkland.com>; Marina, James E. <jmarina@kirkland.com>; Friedman, Todd M. <tfriedman@kirkland.com>; Hamad Hamad <hhamad@caldwellcc.com>; *jcoleman@hopkinscarley.com <jcoleman@hopkinscarley.com>; *jpicone@hopkinscarley.com <jpicone@hopkinscarley.com>; Diana L.

However, we do not think that all the deadlines should be pushed back 30 days as Defendants proposed in the JCMS as a result of the hearing being pushed back. While we still should confer on the remainder of the schedule, we propose that the deadline for IXI's amended contentions be May 23, two weeks after the hearing, instead of 30 days after the Court rules on IXI's motion. Please let us know if that works.
