Having considered Defendant Microsoft's Motion for Partial Stay, the supporting 
and opposing papers, the pleadings and papers on file with the Court, the evidence presented by 
counsel, oral argument by counsel, and good cause appearing therefor, 

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Microsoft's motion is GRANTED, IN PART, AS 

FOLLOWS: 

The parties have selected the following 12 claims for limited Markman claim 
construction and indefiniteness proceedings: 

■ U.S. Patent No. 6,185,683 -claim 2 

■ U.S. Patent Nq. 6,253,193 - claims 1, 11,15, 19 

■ U.S. Patent No. 5,920,861 -claim 58 

• ■ U.S. Patent No. 5,892,900 -claim 155 
- U.S. Patent No. 5,982,891 - claim 1 

■ U.S. Patent No. 5,917,912 - claims 8, 35 

■ U.S. Patent No. 6,157,721 -claims 1,34 

The Court shall schedule the hearing on Microsoft's anticipated motion for partial 
summary judgment of indefiniteness (limited to all or some of these 12 claims) to coincide with 
the Markman hearing on these 12 claims. 

All proceedings (including all discovery) unrelated to the claim construction and 
alleged indefiniteness of these 12 claims shall be stayed pending the Court's ruling on these 
issues. 

The relatedness of discovery requests to the limited Marlon an and indefiniteness 
proceedings shall be construed broadly and both parties are ordered to make every effort to permit 
discovery, otherwise relevant and discoverable under the Civil Rules, that is colorably related to 
or likely to assist in developing issues affecting the claim construction and/or indefiniteness of the 
12 claims selected by the parties. For example, at the hearing counsel represented that they 
would not object to discovery directed to the use, by either party, of claim terms selected to be 
construed at the limited Markman hearing, as well as technical documents mentioning-those claim 
terms. However, the failure to object to such discovery shall not be construed as an admission of

the admissibility or relevance of that material, nor shall it be considered a waiver of the right to 
contest its admissibility for any purpose. 

This partial stay is granted pursuant to the Court's broad powers of case 
management, including the power to limit discovery to relevant subject matter and to adjust 
discovery as appropriate to each phase of litigation as set forth by the Federal Circuit in Vivid 
Technologies, Inc. v. American Science & Engineering, Inc., 200 F.3d 795, 803 (Fed. Cir. 1999), 
and pursuant to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 16(b), (c); 26(b); 42(b).
