FINAL JUDGMENT
On January 27, 2014, the trial of this case began. Plaintiffs Energy Transfer Partners,
L.P. (“ETP”) and Energy Transfer Fuel, L.P. appeared in person and through their attorneys and
announced ready for trial. Defendants Enterprise Products Partners, L.P. (“Enterprise”),
Enterprise Products Operating LLC (“Enterprise LLC”), and Enbridge (US) Inc. (“Enbridge”),
appeared in person and through their attorneys and announced ready for trial. The Court
determined that it had jurisdiction over the subject matter and the parties in this case.
A panel of twelve qualified jurors was selected, and the case proceeded to trial. The jury
heard the evidence and arguments of counsel. The parties concluded evidence on February 25,
2014, when the parties through their attorneys announced in open court that they had presented
all their evidence and rested. The Court submitted questions, definitions, and instructions to the
jury on March 4, 2014. In response, the jury made findings that the Court received, filed, and
entered of record. The jury’s verdict, as reflected in the Charge of the Court, is expressly
