D. Reasons for Requested Change in Schedule
from one of Quantum's outside attorneys, David E. Heisey (Docket No. 125), attesting to certain facts relevant to Quantum's Motion to Amend, including facts regarding Mr. Heisey's interaction with one of Quantum's experts, Dr. David Mazieres. On June 16, 2008, Riverbed served deposition notices to take the depositions of Dr. Mazieres and Mr. Heisey relating to the assertions made in Mr. Heisey's declaration. Riverbed has represented it desires to take these depositions in advance of the preparation of its Reply regarding its MSJ of Validity and Opposition regarding Quantum's Motion to Amend.
shall take place at Quantum's counselTMs San Francisco office beginning at 10:00 a.m. on June 24, 2008, and that the deposition of David E. Heisey shall take place at Quantum's counsel's Del Mar Heights office beginning at 10:00 a.m. on June 27, 2008. These dates, times, and locations were selected in view of the availability of the witnesses.
C. Proposed Changes to Briefing and Hearing Schedule Regarding the Parties' Motions
Quantum's Motion to Amend (Docket No. 123) shall be July 17, 2008 at 8:00 a.m. Further, Motion to Amend shall be July 10, 2008.
When Quantum filed its Motion to Amend on June 12, 2008, it included a declaration The parties met and conferred and agreed that the deposition of Dr. David Mazieres and hearing schedule set forth above on their separate but related motions. It seems reasonable to the parties that Riverbed's briefing following the June 27, 2008 deposition of Mr. Heisey be due on July 3, that Quantum's responsive briefing then be due on July 10, and that the hearing on both 5 motions be set for July 17.
Court was at that time aware that the above-mentioned depositions were going forward.
The parties therefore stipulate and respectfully request that the Court coordinate the Based on these deposition dates, the parties have agreed to the coordinated briefing The parties believe that the Court may have issued yesterday's Order (Docket No. 137) for the purpose of arranging the briefing schedule on these motions, but do not believe the briefing and hearing schedule on Riverbed's MSJ of Validity and Quantum's Motion to Amend as set forth above in view of the depositions that are taking place next week and in order to promote efficiency and judicial economy.
