Apple When It Learned About the Foreman's Seagate Litigation
Authored by: rsteinmetz70112 on Wednesday, November 07 2012 @ 11:33 AM EST
At 10. on page 4 Michael T. Zeller says this.
10. Apple also has requested additional information regarding “whether and when the Quinn partner whose husband filed the Seagate lawsuit realized this lawsuit involved Velvin Hogan, as well as whether and when her husband first became aware of this connection." That Quinn Emanuel partner, Diane Doolittle, first learned that this lawsuit involved Mr. Hogan on September 12, 2012, after Samsung and its counsel received the bankruptcy court file from In re Velvin R. Hogan and Carol K. Hogan, Case No. 93-58291-MM (Bankr. N.D. Cal. Dec. 27, 1993), when I informed her of it. Ms. Doolittle, who was not part of the Samsung trial team in this matter and has not otherwise worked on this litigation, had not heard of and had no knowledge about Mr. Hogan prior to that date. Mr. Grady likewise did not know of Mr. Hogan’s connection to this case until he was informed of the connection on that same day, September 12, 2012, by Ms. Doolittle.
Earlier at 5. he says Samsung received the bankruptcy file on September 10. It does not say who actually made the connection to Doolittle and Grady.

Perhaps Mr. Zeller knew Ms. Doolittle and her husband, perhaps it was someone else who read the file and knew them, perhaps it was the result of further investigation after learning that the court had retained no records of the litigation.

I wonder if copies of those documents still exist with either Seagate, Grady or his (former?) firm. I suspect that they won't match the public descriptions of the case by Mr. Hogan.

I admit I liked it better when I thought it was the result of some random connection between husband and wife rather than simple investigation.
