Softview LLC v. Apple Inc., et al., C.A. No. 10-389-LPS February 22, 2013

Stark, J.  Discovery dispute.

On December 28, 2012, the parties advised the court of a discovery dispute.  A telephone conference was scheduled for February 25, 2013.  The parties then proceeded to file in connection therewith a total of thirty-six letters outlining thirty discovery disputes.  The court cancelled the hearing as to all but a few of the disputes and commented that many of the parties’ disputes could and should have been resolved without judicial assistance.  The court denied nearly all the requested relief but did order plaintiff to produce third-party documents under the protective order.
