Jeffrey White/CAND/09/USCOURTS 05/12/2010 09:15 AM To "Addy, Meredith" <> cc,,,,,, bcc Subject Re: FW: Activity in Case 3:08-cv-04227-JSW Nuance Communications, Inc. v. eCopy, Inc. and Consolidated Case Letter Dear Ms Addy, I have reflected the parties' letter to the Court dated May 11, 2010 and our telephone conversation of this morning about the conflicts waiver issue that has arisen after the Court appointed you as Special Master. I have reluctantly decided as follows: For the reasons we discussed and for the reasons set forth in the parties' letter dated May 11, I cannot accept your continued you as the Special Master in this case unless the parties are satisfied with the conflicts waiver language governing your work in this case, i.e. unless your firm agrees to strike the disputed conflicts waiver language from your engagement letter. Although this Court has the authority to require you to complete your service as Special Master subject to all of the relevant statutory and ethical disqualification rules (ie without any prospective conflict waivers), I will not do so, as such action might create a difficult situation for the parties in this case as well as for you vis-a-vis your law firm. So as not to inconvenience the Court or the parties, I am asking for a response from you by 5 PM Central Time. As an aside I wish this issue could have been vetted with the parties before your name was provided to the court. While I am sending a cc of this email to all counsel, counsel may not respond to this communication via email to the court. Jeffrey S.
