Hon. Jan Horbaly Circuit Executive & Clerk of Court United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit 717 Madison Place, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20439 Re: Micron Technology, Inc. v. Rambus Inc., No. 13-1294

Dear Mr. Horbaly: I write to inform the Court that Rambus Inc. and SK Hynix Inc. recently reached an agreement regarding the settlement of their dispute in SK Hynix Inc. v. Rambus Inc., No. C-00-20905 RMW (N.D. Cal.). In seeking an extension of its opening brief in Micron Technology, Inc. v. Rambus Inc., No. 13-1294 (Fed. Cir.), Rambus noted that, among other things, an extension would be appropriate in part to coordinate the Micron appeal with the then-expected related appeal in SK Hynix. Although Rambus and SK Hynix have now reached agreement, the full 60-day extension of time requested by Rambus is still warranted because of undersigned counsel’s obligations during these summer months. As Rambus’s motion demonstrates, counsel of record has numerous obligations before the Supreme Court of the United States and other courts of appeals. For instance, in the Supreme Court, he has a petition for a writ of certiorari in Zimmerman v. Norfolk Southern Corp., 706 F.3d 170 (3d Cir. 2013) (U.S. No. 12- ), due for filing on June 13; an amicus brief for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in support of petitioner in Atlantic Marine Construction Co. v. J-Crew Management (No. 12-929) due on June 24; and an opening brief in Coleman v.
Sidley Austin (DC) LLP is a Delaware limited liability partnership doing business as Sidley Austin LLP and practicing in affiliation with other Sidley Austin partnerships.

Brown, Nos. 2:90-cv-520 & C01-1351 (E.D. Cal.) (U.S. No. 12- ), due on July 12. Undersigned counsel also has a reply brief due on July 29 in the Second Circuit in United States v. Whitman, No. 13-491 (2d Cir.). And, as explained in Rambus’s motion, counsel has numerous domestic and foreign travel commitments during this time, including attendance at the Federal Circuit Bar Association’s Bench and Bar Conference next week. For these reasons, the full 60-day extension of time to July 29 is warranted to enable counsel of record to participate fully in the preparation of Rambus’s opening brief.

Respectfully submitted,
