Kline regarding the qualifications of himself and his new firm, SNR Denton This motion is being made because justice requires providing the Court with all evidence it requires to decide the motion for class certification, and because good cause exists to supplement the record as proposed above. supplementing the record in this manner. Good cause exists to submit these exhibits because (1) their content and existence has never been in dispute and are not reasonable subject to dispute; (2) their content was discussed at the hearing subject to their being subsequently admitted; (3) admission would eliminate technicalities and allow the Court to address class certification on the merits; and, (4) the Defendants do not oppose. However, Defendants have expressly retained the right to object to any newly filed evidence. Because the hearing in this case and in the related case, John Beck Amazing Profits, LLC v. Google, 09-CV-151 was consolidated, the aforementioned exhibits are being submitted only once, by this motion. Should the Court so request, the Plaintiffs in the Beck case are prepared to re-submit the same exhibits (and an analogous Kline declaration) separately in that case. Plaintiff respectfully requests that its motion to supplement the record be granted. Dated: December 7, 2010 Respectfully submitted, By: /s/ Nathan D. Meyer Marc A.
