IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS WACO DIVISION § SLINGSHOT PRINTING LLC, § § Plaintiff, § § § CIVIL ACTION NO. 6:19-cv-362-ADA v. § § HP INC., § § Defendant. § § § UNOPPOSED MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO RESPOND TO COMPLAINT Defendant HP Inc. ("HP") files this Unopposed Motion for Extension of Time to Respond to Complaint and respectfully shows the following: Plaintiff Slingshot Printing LLC ("Slingshot") filed its Complaint on June 11, 2019 (Dkt. No. 1) and served HP on June 17, 2019. HP previously requested an unopposed extension of time to answer on July 1, 2019 (Dkt. No. 14), which the Court granted. On August 13, 2019 Slingshot requested a further extension of time for HP to answer because Slingshot indicated it would amend its complaint to add asserted patents (Dkt. No. 15), which the Court granted. HP's current response deadline is October 21, 2019. On September 20, 2019 Slingshot filed its First Amended Complaint (Dkt. No. 16), which dropped an asserted patent (U.S. Patent No. 7,258,434) and added a new asserted patent (U.S. Patent No. 7,438,397). On the same day, Slingshot filed a fourth case against HP in this Court, C.A. No. 6:19-cv-549-ADA ("549 case"), asserting ten patents. HP agreed to waive service of the summons in the 549 case, and Slingshot filed the executed waiver of service form on September 20. Pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(d)(3), HP's answer is due November 19, 2019 in the 549 case. HP requests an extension to respond on or before November 19, 2019 to harmonize HP's answer date for all four pending cases in this Court. Counsel for HP conferred with counsel for Slingshot who stated that Slingshot does not oppose this request. Wherefore, HP respectfully requests that the Court grant this motion and enter an order extending the deadline for HP to answer or otherwise respond to the Complaint to November 19, 2019.
