SUPPORTING DECLARATION OF ROBERT H. FISCHER
I, ROBERT H. FISCHER, declare as follows: 3

I submit this declaration in support of the 5 parties' Stipulation Regarding Case Schedule. I make this declaration of my own personal knowledge 6 and will competently testify thereto if called upon to do so. 7
2. On April 15, 2011, the Court entered a Stipulated Order [Dkt. 44],
which sets forth a
briefing schedule for cross-motions for summary judgment. The
Stipulated Order also sets the hearing 9 on cross-dispositive motions

3. The parties, both the respective corporate representatives and outside counsel, have been

4. The Court previously granted the Stipulated Order to permit settlement discussions.
Otherwise, the only time modification in this case was to change the Case Management Conference 17 from December 3, 2010, to January 14, 2011, to coincide with the hearing on Rambus's motion to 18 dismiss. See Dkt. 30. 19
5. The requested modification in the current case schedule will not
