Case No. 1:13-cv-01063-RWR MOTOROLA MOBILITY LLC’S MOTION TO DISMISSPURSUANT TO RULES 12(b)(6) AND 12(b)(1)
Proposed Intervenor-DefendantMotorola MobilityLLC (“Motorola”)hereby respectfullymoves to dismiss Microsoft Corporation’s (“Microsoft”) complaint, which amounts to anunprecedented attempt to circumvent the administrative processwhereinCustoms and Border Protection (“Customs”) enforces exclusion ordersissued by the International Trade Commission(“ITC”) under Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“Section 337”). Although ithas wellestablished, readily availableadministrative process at the ITC to obtain the very samerelief (including interim relief) it seeks here, Microsoft is askingthis Court to take action that isextraordinary, and, indeed, unprecedented: to intervene in the administrative process,to interpretthe ITC’s exclusion order as desired by Microsoft but without benefit of illumination from the

2ITC itself,to interfere withCustoms’exercise of enforcement discretion as informed by itsconsultations with the ITC, and to compel Customs to exclude Motorola’s mobile phones fromthe United States and to recall those phones that have already been imported. This Court shouldreject the instant action at the threshold and dismissin particular, because Microsoft’s recourseshould be to the ITC and then, if aggrieved, to the Federal Circuit, and also because the instantdispute will remainunripe for adjudication unless and until Customs actually refuses to enforcean on-point exclusion order of the ITC. For these reasons and those elaborated upon in theaccompanying memorandum of points and authorities, Microsoft’s complaint should bedismissed for failure to state a claim for relief or, in the alternative, for lack of subject-matter  jurisdiction.Dated: August 2, 2013Respectfully submitted,By:/s
