DECLARATION OF CRAIG MCLAUGHLIN, ESQ.

2

I, Craig McLaughlin, Esq. hereby declare that:
1.

3

I am currently attorney of record for Defendants Kelly C. Sugano and

4

Taka-O in connection with the above entitled case and am a member in good

5

standing of the State Bar of California and have personal knowledge of the facts

6

set forth below and if called upon to testify to them could and would competently

7

do so.
2.

8
9

I have over 16 years of experience practicing intellectual property law

in California, including litigation matters and trials. My hourly rate charged in the

10

above entitled case has been $350 per hour. This rate is in line if not below other

11

attorneys’ rates with similar experience in the locale.
3.

12

During the afternoon of February 12, 2013, I received a telephone call

13

from a person identifying himself to be an associate of Fox Rothschild, counsel for

14

Slep-tone. He was not an attorney of record, but did say that Alan Chen asked him

15

to call and that Mr. Chen is a partner at Fox Rothschild. He indicated that Slep-

16

tone intended to file a motion for reconsideration. I asked him on what grounds

17

the motion would be based. He explained that it would be based on authority

18

supporting the proposition that payment of a settlement amount shows that a party

19

cannot be a prevailing party. I asked him whether such authority was new or was

20

in connection with the Lanham Act and he did not indicate. I told him that Slep-

21

tone failed to oppose the underlying fee motion and that therefore a motion for

22

reconsideration would be untimely and likely frivolous, and that Defendants would

23

vigorously oppose it if filed. Less than four hours later, I received electronic

24

notice of the filing of the motion.
4.

25

I drafted the instant opposition which required 6.5 hours of my work

26

at $350 per hour. An additional 0.5 hours is anticipated to review Slep-tone’s
