1 ATI Technologies ULC, ASE (U.S.), Inc., ChipMOS U.S.A., Inc., 2 ChipMOS Technologies, Inc., ChipMOS Technologies (Bermuda) Ltd., 3 STMicroelectronics, Inc. and STMicroelectronics N.V. oppose 4 Tessera's motion. 5 Tessera seeks to continue the fact discovery deadline by 6 three months and to make further changes to subsequent deadlines. 7 Tessera first presented its motion to the Special Master, who 8 granted a one-month extension to the fact discovery deadline and 9 extended the dates for opening and rebuttal expert reports. 10 Having reviewed the papers submitted by the parties, the Court 11 finds that the changes made to the case management schedule by the 12 Special Master, who has tremendous familiarity with the history of discovery in these cases, were well-considered and proper, and 14 that Tessera has not presented good cause to further modify the 15 schedule at this time. Accordingly, Tessera's motion is DENIED 16 (Docket Nos. 1122 in Case No. 05-4063 and 238 in Case No. 12-692) 17 and the Special Master's order is affirmed. 18
IT IS SO ORDERED.
