[PROP.] SUPPLEMENTAL BRIEF RE COURT’SDETERMINATION OF RAND RATE PURSUANTTO 9.21.12 ORDER, CASE NO. CV 00-20905 RMW
In its September 21, 2012 Order, the Court determined that “the sanction mostcommensurate with Rambus’s conduct” was an order “strik[ing] from the record evidencesupporting a royalty in excess of a reasonable, non-discriminatory royalty.” 9/21/12Order at 65:10-11. The Court instructed the parties to file a single round of briefs“addressing what a reasonable, non-discriminatory royalty rate would be with respect tothe patents-in-suit.”
. at 65:15-66:1. In accordance with the Order and the parties’stipulations regarding the briefing schedule, Hynix filed its remedy brief on October 30,2012 and Rambus filed its remedy brief on November 13, 2012.Despite the Court’s order, Hynix filed an Administrative Motion on November 20,2012 seeking leave to file a supplemental brief, which it attached to its motion (“Hynix’sSupp. Brief”). On November 26, 2012, Rambus filed its Opposition to Hynix’s motion.As of this date, the Court has not ruled on the motion.Rambus therefore submits this supplemental brief in an abundance of caution.Rambus’s supplemental brief is necessary because Hynix did not address in itsOctober 30, 2012 brief the available evidence regarding a reasonable and non-discriminatory (“RAND”) rate.
Hynix 10/30/12 Remedy Brief at 9:9-23 (stating thatcalculating a RAND rate “is a complicated matter” and that there “is no need” to do so).Instead, Hynix waited to address the RAND issues in its supplemental brief. In order forRambus to have an opportunity to respond to Hynix’s arguments regarding RAND issues,as Rambus believes the Court intended,
9/21/12 Order at 65:18-66:1, Rambusrespectfully requests that the Court consider this brief if Hynix’s supplemental brief isconsidered.
Rambus notes that Hynix has separately filed objections to the Declaration of BrianHammer that Rambus filed on November 13, 2012. Rambus will separately respond toHynix’s objections prior to the December 19, 2012 hearing.
