IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SAN FRANCISCO DIVISION


April 30, 2009

J2 GLOBAL COMMUNICATIONS, INC., PLAINTIFF,
v.
SAVETZ PUBLISHING, INC., DEFENDANT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: The Honorable Elizabeth D. Laporte Judge

STIPULATION REQUESTING CONTINUANCE OF CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE AND RE-SETTING OF DUE DATES UNDER THE PATENT LOCAL RULES; [PROPOSED] ORDER

COME NOW plaintiff j2 Global Communications, Inc. ("j2") and defendant Savetz Publishing, Inc. ("Savetz"), by and through their respective undersigned attorneys, and hereby jointly stipulate and request that the Case Management Conference in this action, currently set for hearing on May 12, 2009, be continued and that certain due dates under Northern District Patent Local Rules be re-set. This Stipulation is based upon the following stipulated facts:

1. j2 filed this action on September 24, 2009.

2. On March 27, 2009, the parties mediated this matter.

3. Based on a tentative settlement achieved in that mediation, the parties requested a continuance of the Case Management Conference, which was at the time set for April 7, 2009.

The parties also requested that the due dates for the Patent Local Rule obligations be re-set. On March 31, 2009, the Court entered its Order granting these requests, and it continued the Case Management Conference in this action to May 12, 2009. The Court also ordered that the parties' Patent Local Rule obligations be re-set such that j2's disclosure of Asserted Claims and Infringement Contentions pursuant to Patent L.R. 3-1 and 3-2 would be due by May 6, 2009, and Savetz's Invalidity Contentions pursuant to Patent L.R. 3-3 and 3-4 would be due by June 19, 2009.

4. The parties continue to be engaged in settlement discussions. However, the parties anticipate needing additional time to consummate settlement. At this time, the parties believe it is likely that they will be able to resolve their disputes within the next 45 days. For this reason, the parties agree that the Case Management Conference, currently set for May 12, 2009, should be continued, and that the due dates for the Patent Local Rule obligations established by the Court in its March 31, 2009 Order should be re-set, and that doing so would serve the interests of judicial economy and efficiency.

WHEREFORE, based on such agreement, the parties hereby request that the Case Management Conference, currently set for May 12, 2009, be continued for at least 45 days; and, further, the parties hereby request that the Patent Local Rule obligations established by the Court's March 31, 2009 Order be re-set such that j2's disclosure of Asserted Claims and Infringement Contentions pursuant to Patent L.R. 3-1 and 3-2 are due by June 22, 2009, and Savetz's Invalidity Contentions pursuant to Patent L.R. 3-3 and 3-4 for both patents at issue in the pleadings are due by August 6, 2009, and that the remainder of the due dates in the Patent Local Rules will be determined based upon the date of service of Savetz's Invalidity Contentions.

IT IS SO STIPULATED.

Dated: April 29, 2009
