Motion Hearing Today in Oracle v. Google ~pj
Thursday, May 03 2012 @ 01:52 PM EDT

There is a hearing today on Oracle's Motion to Strike at 11 California time. Just so you know. It's in Docket #1055, which reads:
This order supersedes the prior order regarding Oracle’s motion to strike the reports of Dr. James Kearl and Dr. Alan Cox (Dkt. No. 1054). Instead, Oracle’s motion is hereby set for hearing at 11:00 A.M. TODAY. The parties shall bring all relevant documents to today’s hearing, including Andy Rubin’s deposition, Dr. Alan Cox’s report, Dr. James Kearl’s report, and the excel document “Android PnL_through_Aug20.xls”, and any other P&L statement relied on by Dr. Cox.
I saw the media on Twitter puzzled over what's happening with all the lawyers. That's what is happening.

A lot is going on, with motions flying, while the jury is out deliberating. Mark Webbink has that covered in today's coverage on Groklaw, including the motion at issue.

If anybody in the media wants to know how to access and get the documents being filed, please email me and I'll give you a hand. Or just go here and follow the instructions.

Also the two sides agree that if a verdict is returned today or tomorrow, "the parties have no objection to starting the Phase 2 on Monday, May 7". They probably want to get some sleep. And the jury may be exhausted too. But we'll see what the judge says. His battery never seems to run down.

Meanwhile, Caleb Garling has tweeted that the jury sent in another question, this one about de minimis. Remember I told you that the questions, to me, indicated simply that they are going down the list, piece by piece? I personally wouldn't read any other significance to the questions.

[ Update: Also the judge has now agreed to give them time off if they reach a verdict today or tomorrow. If that happens, then they'll be told about the time off until Monday. He doesn't want them to be induced to finish early just to rest. All this from Brandon Bailey on Twitter.

Here's the docket with the PDFs:
