Patterson, declare as follows: 1. I am an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of Ohio and am admitted pro hac vice in this case. I am an associate at the law firm of Cooper & Kirk, PLLC, counsel of record for Defendant-Intervenors Dennis Hollingsworth, Gail Knight, Martin Gutierrez, Mark Jansson, and ProtectMarriage.com ("Proponents"). I make this declaration in support of Proponents' Motion for to Shorten Time. 2. The harms that will occur absent an order shortening time are the harms described in Proponents' motion for a stay pending appeal. 3. The underlying dispute is whether a judgment for Plaintiffs should be stayed pending appeal. Due to the exigencies of the situation, Proponents have not contacted the other parties seeking a stipulation to shorten time or their position on the merits of the underlying motion. 4. I am aware of three previous time modifications in the case, one by Court order, see Doc #170, and two by stipulation, see Doc #266, Doc #615. 5. The requested time modification would affect the schedule of this case by giving the Court an opportunity to decide Proponents' motion for a stay pending appeal before any judgment invalidating Prop 8 goes into effect. 1 DECLARATION OF PETER A.
