UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK ------------------------------------ x : PAUL D. CEGLIA, : : Plaintiff, : : v. : : MARK ELLIOT ZUCKERBERG and : FACEBOOK, INC., : : Defendants. ------------------------------------ x Civil Action No. 1:10-cv-00569-RJA DECLARATION OF ALEXANDER H. SOUTHWELL I, ALEXANDER H. SOUTHWELL, hereby declare under penalty of perjury that the following is true and correct: 1. I am an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of New York and admitted to practice before this Court. I am a partner in the law firm of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, counsel of record for Defendants Mark Elliot Zuckerberg and Facebook, Inc. in the abovecaptioned matter. I make this declaration, based on personal knowledge, in support of Defendants’ Eighth Motion to Compel. 2. On August 15, 2012, the Court granted Defendants’ Seventh Motion to Compel, ordering Plaintiff Paul Ceglia to “produce the Kasowitz Letter within three (3) days of this Decision and Order.” Doc. No. 478 at 8 (emphasis removed), 361, 362. On August 17, 2012, Ceglia produced the April 13, 2011 Kasowitz Letter, designating it as “Confidential” pursuant to the parties’ Joint Stipulated Protective Order (Doc. No. 86). Defendants challenge this designation as improper. A true and correct copy of the April 13, 2011 Kasowitz Letter received from Mr. Boland on August 17, 2012 is attached hereto as Exhibit A, which is redacted in the publicly-filed declaration due to Ceglia’s improper confidentiality designations.
