Subject to the exceptions stated below, and absent affirmative evidence that a 14 document or thing is not what it purports to be, Plaintiffs agree that, for purposes of Rule 901 of the 15 Federal Rules of Evidence, Plaintiffs will not contest the authenticity of any document or thing, 16 including any true and correct copy thereof, produced by Plaintiffs in connection with the 17 Litigation. 18 2.

The Parties’ agreements in paragraphs 1 and 2 of this stipulation do not apply to 24 handwritten notes. If a document or thing produced by a Party also bears handwritten notes, the 25 Parties’ agreements do not apply to the handwritten notes portion of the document, but do apply to 26 the remainder of the document or thing. The Parties agree that, at a mutually agreed upon time prior 27 to trial, each Party may identify to the other Party a reasonable number of documents and things 28 containing handwritten notes as to which that Party desires a stipulation of authenticity.

The other Party agrees to give good faith consideration to 6 a reasonable request pertaining to third-party documents and things. 7 5. Except to the extent authenticity is established by and within the scope of the 8 express terms of this stipulation, this stipulation does not affect either (1) Plaintiffs’ ability to 9 contest the authenticity of any document or thing produced by Defendant or (2) Defendant’s ability 10 to contest the authenticity of any document or thing produced by Plaintiffs. 11 6. In the event that a dispute arises regarding the authenticity of a document, the 12 Parties agree to meet and confer in good faith promptly about the authenticity of such document(s) 13 and, if necessary, to expedite any related motions for resolution by the Court. 14 7. Nothing in this stipulation shall be construed as an agreement that any documents or 15 things that are subject to this stipulation are admissible into evidence by any Party, except as 16 expressly addressed herein.
