UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 9, 2007
QUALCOMM INCORPORATED, PLAINTIFF,
BROADCOM CORPORATION DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hon. Anthony J. Battaglia U.S. Magistrate Judge United States District Court
Order Denying Request to Stay Court's Prior Order on Motion to Compel Deposition Testimony And related counterclaims.
The parties contacted the Court to arrange a conference call, which took place at 1:00 p.m. on February 9, 2007, to discuss Broadcom's refusal to provide dates for the depositions as required by this Court's Order of February 6, 2007, Docket No. 288. Broadcom informed the Court that it plans to file an ex parte application appealing the ruling with the district judge and has therefore refused to provide dates to Qualcomm for the depositions pending resolution of the appeal. The Court informed Broadcom that it would not automatically stay the Order pending resolution of the ex parte application by the district judge.*fn1 Instead, the Court instructed Broadcom to seeking a stay of the Order directly with the district judge in conjunction with the ex parte application.
In light of Broadcom's impending ex parte application, the Court granted the parties' request to extend the deadline for completion of the depositions covered by the February 6, 2007 Order from February 21, 2007 until February 28, 2007.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
