Perry v. Schwarzenegger, No. 09-17241, slip op. at 36 n.12. See Hr'g of Jan. 6, 2010, Tr. (rough) at 103:7-9. The Court also noted, however, that it preferred that Plaintiffs have access to the declaration. See id. at 103:13-21. Accordingly, Defendant-Intervenors, pursuant to an agreement with Plaintiffs' counsel, have provided the enclosed declaration to Plaintiffs' counsel on an attorneys' eyes only basis. Also pursuant to an agreement with Plaintiffs' counsel, Defendant-Intervenors are hereby filing a redacted version of the attached declaration on the Court's electronic docket. There was a question at the hearing regarding whether a particular name that the Court deemed within the "core group" was already public, and Proponents have confirmed that that name-- Michael Spence--was already disclosed on the privilege log previously filed on the Court's public docket. This information was disclosed to Plaintiffs' counsel following the hearing. Following the January 6 hearing, Defendant-Intervenors assessed the production schedule the Court has ordered. Defendant-Intervenors continue to believe it is not possible to meet that schedule. Defendant-Intervenors will, however, review, produce, and log documents as quickly as possible with the resources available. Defendant-Intervenors thus respectfully submit the attached, redacted declaration. Dated: January 7, 2010 COOPER AND KIRK, PLLC ATTORNEYS FOR DEFENDANTS-INTERVENORS DENNIS HOLLINGSWORTH, GAIL J.
