The parties are actively engaged in settlement talks, with much progress being made. But
both sides also face a May 15 deadline to provide CMO 4 and CMO 10 discovery - productions
that would require very significant resources over the next month. I have conferred with Mr.
Gordon, Mr. Summy and Ms. Greenwald, and we are all agreed that both sides would prefer to
devote their resources to continued settlement efforts. Accordingly, both sides respectfully
request a 45-day extension of the May 15 deadline for the CMO 4 and CMO 10 discovery.
As always, we appreciate your time and attention to this matter.
