Fairfield Greenwich Limited, et al., No. 09-cv-118 (VM)(FM) Dear Judge Maas: We represent defendants The Citco Group Ltd., Citco Fund Services (Europe) B.V., Citco (Canada) Inc., Citco Global Custody N.V, Citco Bank Nederland, N.V., Dublin Branch, and Citco Fund Services (Bennuda) Ltd. (collectively, the "Citco Defendants"). We \vrite on behalf of the Citco Defendants as well as the plaintiffs and defendants PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP ("PwC Canada") and PricewaterhouseCoopers Accountants, N.V. ("PwC Netherlands") respectfully to request a short extension ofthe current deadline for depositions from March 31, 2014 until April 25, 2014. By way of brief background, on January 30, 2013, the Court set a schedule for expert discovery in this matter. On November 12,2013, the Court extended the deadline for expert discovery until March 31,2014. Since that time, the parties have cooperated with respect to the scheduling of expert depositions and have been working diligently toward completing all expert depositions by the March 31 dr;:tz:tlUE::fltE:===="===:=.==:::~:=--t~ . .; r I USDCSDNY !

In addition to the relatively large number of expert depositions, certain depositions have already had to be rescheduled for unanticipated reasons: two ofthe witnesses have fallen ill, one shortly after the start of the deposition and the other a few days before the deposition, and the recent deposition of another witness will be continued to a second half-day by agreement of the parties. Given the complexity of the issues in this matter, we anticipate that there may be additional expert witnesses whose depositions will continue into a second day. Accordingly, the parties respectfully request that the expert deposition deadline currently set for March 31 be reset for April 25. Respectfully submitted, , I I I / ~rj!r I i j : Andrew G.
