UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS RICHARD SHEPPARD ARNOLD UNITED STATES COURTHOUSE 500 W. CAPITOL, ROOM D444 LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS 72201-3325 (501) 604-5140 Facsimile (501) 604-5149 March 9, 2009 Mr. John Calhoun, Jr. Hilburn, Calhoon, Harper, Pruniski, & Calhoun, Ltd. P.O. Box 5551 North Little Rock, AR 72119 Re: VIA FACSIMILE United States of America ex. rel. Norman Rille, et al. v. Accenture, at al. -4:04-CV-00985-WRW Dear Mr. Calhoun: Would you be willing to serve as special master for discovery in the referenced case? It is a whistle blower case with some hotly contested discovery issues. Here are the questions: 1. Would you be willing to serve? 2. What is your hourly rate? I anticipate having the non-government parties put a retainer up for you to draw against on a monthly basis, or thereabouts. You would have to bill the government for its portion each month since it is not permitted to put up front money. Furthermore, after you give us your hourly rate, the government's lawyers will have to get approval. Please advise (with copies of your letter to the lawyers shown below). Cordially, /s/ Wm. R. Wilson, Jr. Original to the Clerk of the Court 1 cc: Mr. Stephen Engstrom Wilson, Engstrom, Corum & Coulter P.O.
