At my direction, I have had my staff investigate the people involved in the California proceedings related to the motion to quash. We did not include fees associated with the proceedings in Massachusetts or fees associated with act ivit ies unrelated to the motion to quash in our review of bills. Based upon the billing records, we concluded as follows: The following attorneys were involved in addressing discovery issues and motions practice associated with the individual defendants' motion to quash filed with the California Superior Court: G. Hopkins Guy, I. Neel Chatterjee, Monte M. F. Cooper, Theresa Sutton, Robert Nagel, Joshua Walker, Peter O'Rourke, Yvonne Greer, and Amandine Hall. The billing rates for these attorneys range from $605 to $165 per hour. The estimated total amount of hours spent was 662.90 by these attorneys. Amy Dalton is a paralegal working on the matter. Her billing rate is $185 per hour. The estimated total hours spent by her associated with the individual defendants' motion to quash is 150.00. We are currently re-reviewing her time to ensure it is accurate and reserve the right to amend her time. The estimated total amount of fees incurred related to the motion to quash proceedings was $283,203.80. We are willing to provide more information or back up for in camera review upon request. I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct to the best of my knowledge. Executed this 22 day of August, 2007, at Menlo Park, California. /s/ I. Neel Chatterjee /s/ I.
