|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.
5. he says Samsung received the bankruptcy file on September 10. It does not say
who actually made the connection to Doolittle and Grady.
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.
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
