Attached hereto as Exhibit 2 is a true and correct copy of an email chain between Emily O’Brien and Kenneth Brothers, dated between September 22 and September 26, 2012. 4. In addition to Defendants’ proposed compromises set forth in Exhibit 2, Defendants also proposed during a telephone call that Plaintiff focus on the five most important witnesses and at least narrow those designations, so that Defendants would be able to properly object and counter-designate. As with the other compromise offers, Plaintiff refused this compromise as well. 5. Attached as Exhibit 3 is a true and correct copy of an email chain between Emily O’Brien, Stephen Noona, and Kenneth Brothers dated October 4-5, 2012.
