Case No. CR 04-397 PJH

Under Crim. L. R. 8-1, the United States and Thomas Quinn ("Defendant"), file this Stipulated Notice of Related Case in a Criminal Action for this criminal case, United States v. Thomas Quinn, CR 06-635 (SI) to seven previously filed criminal cases assigned to Judge Phyllis J. Hamilton, United States v. Sun Woo Lee, et al., CR 06-180 (PJH), United States v. D.S. Kim, et al., CR 06-126 (PJH), United States v. Elpida Memory, CR 06-0059 (PJH), United States v. Samsung Electronics Company, Limited and Samsung Semiconductor, Inc., CR 05-643 (PJH), United States v. Hynix Semiconductor Inc., CR 05-249 (PJH), United States v. Infineon Technologies AG, CR 04-299 (PJH), and United States v. T. Rudd Corwin, et al., CR 04-397 (PJH). The United States and Defendant jointly request relating this case to Judge Hamilton.

A chronological history of these related criminal cases follows. On September 15, 2004, the United States filed an Information in United States v. Infineon Technologies AG, charging Infineon with participating in a conspiracy to fix the prices of DRAM sold to certain computer manufacturers. On October 20, 2004, Infineon pled guilty for participating in the price-fixing conspiracy and was sentenced to pay a $160 million fine before Judge Hamilton. On December 2, 2004, the United States filed an Information in United States v. T. Rudd Corwin, et al., charging four individual defendants with participating in the same price-fixing conspiracy in the DRAM industry. On December 15, 2004, Judge Hamilton sentenced each of the four individuals. On April 21, 2005, the United States filed an Information in United States v. Hynix Semiconductor Inc., charging Hynix with participating in the DRAM price-fixing conspiracy. On May 11, 2005, Hynix pled guilty for participating in the price-fixing conspiracy and was sentenced by Judge Hamilton to pay a $185 million fine. On October 13, 2005, the United States filed an Information in United States v. Samsung Electronics Company, Limited and Samsung Semiconductor, Inc., charging Samsung with participating in the DRAM price-fixing conspiracy. On November 30, 2005, Samsung pled guilty for participating in the price-fixing conspiracy and was sentenced by Judge Hamilton to pay a $300 million fine. On January 30, 2006, the United States filed an Information in United States v. Elpida Memory, Inc., charging Elpida with participating in the DRAM price-fixing conspiracy. On March 22, 2006, Elpida pled guilty for participating in the DRAM price-fixing conspiracy and was sentenced by Judge Hamilton to pay an $84 million fine. On March 1, 2006, the United States filed an Information in United States v. D.S. Kim et al., charging four individual defendants with participating in the DRAM price-fixing conspiracy. On March 15, 2006, Judge Hamilton sentenced each of the four individuals. Finally, on March 22, 2006, the United States filed an Information in United States v. Sun Woo Lee, et al., charging three individual defendants with participating in the DRAM price-fixing conspiracy. On April 2, 2007, Judge Hamilton sentenced two of the three individuals, Sun Woo Lee and Yeongho Kang. On August 30, Judge Hamilton sentenced the third individual, Young Woo Lee.

The Information charges that Defendant participated in the DRAM price-fixing conspiracy. There are common events and occurrences alleged in this case and the seven predecessor cases pending before Judge Hamilton.

The assignment of this case to Judge Hamilton is therefore likely to conserve judicial resources and to promote an efficient determination of the action.

Dated: October 6, 2006

Respectfully submitted,

THOMAS QUINN
