Peden [ppeden@pedenlawfirm.corn] Friday, June 19, 2009 4:15 PM Parker, Crystal Babcock, Chip; nickpattonŠtexarkanalaw.com ; 'Marcie Long'; 'Geoff Culbertson' RE: Ward v. Cisco submission log Importance: High Crystal: The Court did not limit his in camera review to the documents produced in the Albritton case. That would make no sense in light of the arguments rnade in the parties briefing, the scope of waiver the Court ordered, and our explanation that the Albritton Agreement was flawed in that it let Cisco pick and choose which documents it wanted to produce. The Court is not going to want to conduct an in camera review twice, which is exactly what will happen if the Court affirms the March 30 Order and Cisco continues to withhold documents on its privilege log. Moreover, the Court ordered us to agree on the scope of the admission. Cisco's position that it is going to submit only the Albritton documents, whether we agree or not, is unacceptable. We asked for a updated privilege log from Cisco so that we could make a reasonable selection from the documents that Cisco is withholding. Since you will not provide it to us, we request that all documents on Cisco's privilege log be submitted to Judge Hendren. In addition, any documents in Cisco's possession received from Baker Botts should be included. Finally, we would like the email referenced in Frenkel's October 18, 2007 Post, wherein he says he received an email stating that ESN called the court clerk provided to the Court for in camera review. I don't believe that document has been produced in this case. If it has, please give me the production number so we can verify that we have it. If Cisco doesn't have it, please list it on the log anyway and tell the Court that it is unavailable. Since the submission must be a joint submission, we will not sign off on Cisco's submission until these items are included, Marcie is reviewing Cisco's proposed submission log to ensure that all of the documents produced in the Albritton case have been listed. We should be able to get back to you about the completeness of the log in this respect by Tuesday of next week. Hopefully, Judge Hendren is available for clarification of this issue on Monday so that we will have time to get the other documents identified on the log before Friday's submission.

I believe the log contains all of those documents. If you will let me know whether there are any documents produced in the Albritton case that were not identified, we will add them to the list. Otherwise, we will get the documents to the Court. Thanks, Crystal J. Parker Jackson Walker L.L.P. 713-752-4217 From: Patricia L.

Cisco submission log Crystal: We will look through the list and confirm that it includes all of the documents produced in the Albritton case. It will take us a day or two to do that and get back to you. Cisco's submission log should also include the documents that Baker Botts gave Cisco for production in the Albritton case. Also, there are documents on Cisco's privilege log separate and apart from the documents produced in the Albritton case that should be submitted. We will identify those documents for inclusion on Cisco's list. Can you confirm for me that Cisco's privilege log has not changed since it was last produced to Ward? If additional documents have been logged on Cisco's privilege log, please provide us with an updated privilege log so that we can identify the documents we would like submitted to Judge Hendren. Finally, you may want to include a column on the far left of the submission log that numbers the documents. If the Court has questions about the documents and wants further argument, it helps to be able to discuss the documents by number.

Cisco submission log ŤDOCSOPEN-#5536654-v2-Privileged_Documents_Produced_in_Albritton_v Cisco_case.DOCť Patty and Nick, Attached is the submission log containing all the privileged documents produced under the Protective Order and non-waiver agreements in the Albritton v. Cisco case (except one as described below). As we agreed in our hearing with Judge Hendren, Cisco will submit these documents for in camera inspection on or before next Friday. Judge Hendren asked us to come to an agreement regarding this list. Please confirm that these are all the privileged documents produced under the Protective Order and non-waiver agreements in the Albritton v. Cisco case. You will notice that one document is missing: CISCO PRIVILEGED.000014, which was inadvertently produced as a privileged document, when it is only responses to privileged documents but not itself privileged. I will have it bates labeled and produced to you as a non-privileged document before we submit these documents to Judge Hendren. 6/28/2009 VVarct v.
