List any cases related to the present action that are pending in any state or federal court, with the style, case number, court, and a brief description of the case. Saldana, et al. v. Hidalgo County, et al., No. C-6392-13I (398th Judicial District Court, Hidalgo County, Texas) (filed Oct. 18, 2013). Plaintiffs seek temporary and permanent enjoinment of Senate Bill 14 (2011) (SB 14). On August 30, 2013, the Court ordered the consolidation of United States v. Texas, No. 2:13-cv-263 (S.D. Tex.) (NGR) with Veasey v. Perry, No. 2:13-cv-193 (S.D. Tex.) (NGR) (ECF No. 14). On September 19, 2013, the Court ordered the consolidation of Texas State Conference of NAACP Branches v. Steen, No. 2:13-cv-291 (S.D. Tex.) (NGR) with Veasey v. Perry, No. 2:13-cv-193 (S.D. Tex.) (NGR) and United States v. Texas, No. 2:13-cv-263 (S.D. Tex.) (NGR) (ECF No. 31).

3.

Briefly describe the pertinent facts and legal theories upon which the present actions are based. United States v. Texas is a challenge under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1973, to the State of Texas’s photographic voter identification law, SB 14, to enforce the voting rights guaranteed by the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. Veasey v. Perry alleges two categories of claims: (1) that SB 14 discriminates in voting on account of race, ethnicity and language minority status, in violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act and the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments, and (2) that, without regard to race, ethnicity or language minority status, SB 14 abridges and severely burdens the right to vote without sufficient justification, and sets up discriminatory classifications on its face, in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, including its incorporation of voters’ First Amendment free speech and free association rights, and the anti-poll tax provision of the Twenty-Fourth Amendment. Texas NAACP v. Steen is an action for declaratory and injunctive relief brought by the Texas State Conference of NAACP Branches and the Mexican American Legislative Caucus of the Texas House of Representatives under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1973, and the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the United 3

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 4 of 19

States Constitution to enjoin sections of the State of Texas’s photographic voter identification law, SB 14 (2011), and declare them violative of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act and the voting rights guaranteed by the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments. Plaintiff-Intervenors Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund challenge the State of Texas’s photographic voter identification law, SB 14, under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1973 and 42 U.S.C. § 1983, to enforce the voting rights guaranteed by the Voting Rights Act and by the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. 4. Specify the allegation of federal jurisdiction. Indicate whether the parties agree or disagree to the allegation. If the parties disagree, indicate the nature of the disagreement. This Court has jurisdiction to hear this matter pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1331, 1345, and 2201 and 42 U.S.C. § 1973j(f). The parties agree on the allegation of federal jurisdiction. Plaintiff-Intervenors Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund allege that this Court has jurisdiction to hear this matter pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1331, 1343, 1345, 1357 and 2201 and 42 U.S.C. §§ 1973, 1973j(f), 1983, and 1988. The parties agree on the allegation of federal jurisdiction. 5. List any additional parties that may be included, when they can be added, and which party desires to bring them into the litigation. In diversity jurisdiction cases, this item is intended to trigger the disclosure requirement of TEX. CIV. PRAC. & REM. CODE § 33.004(d) (effective September 1, 2011) and TEX. R. CIV. P. 194.2(b). The plaintiff United States does not anticipate seeking to add additional defendants. The Veasey Plaintiffs and the Texas NAACP/MALC Plaintiffs may amend their complaints to add new plaintiffs, without leave of court, by December 6, 2013. Thereafter, additional plaintiffs may be added only with leave of court. Plaintiff-Intervenors Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund anticipate amending their complaint to add individual plaintiff-intervenors. If PlaintiffIntervenors ultimately amend their complaint to add individual plaintiff-intervenors, they will do so in the time afforded by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 15(a)(1)(B). 6. List any anticipated interventions. Motions to intervene by True the Vote (ECF No. 38) and Texas Association of Hispanic County Judges (ECF No. 41) are pending. The parties are unaware of any additional anticipated motions to intervene. 4

7.

If this is a class action, describe any issues regarding certification of the class. The parties do not seek certification of a class.

8.

State whether each party represents that it has made the initial disclosures required by Rule 26(a). If not, describe the arrangements that have been made to complete the disclosures. The plaintiff United States, the Veasey plaintiffs, the plaintiffs in Texas NAACP, and Plaintiff-Intervenors Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund will make their initial disclosures on November 21, 2013.

9.

Describe the proposed discovery plan the parties have agreed upon, including: A. Responses to all the matters raised in Rule 26(f). The parties have been unable to agree upon a joint scheduling order. The Court’s standard deadlines are not applicable to this case. The plaintiff United States, the Texas NAACP plaintiffs, and the Plaintiff-Intervenors Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund propose the schedule that is attached as Exhibit 1. The plaintiff United States submits a statement in support of its proposed schedule at Exhibit 2. The Veasey plaintiffs propose the schedule that is attached as Exhibit 3. The Veasey plaintiffs submit a statement in support of their proposed schedule at Exhibit 4. The State of Texas proposes the schedule that is attached as Exhibit 5. * a. Interrogatories: The plaintiff United States, the Texas NAACP plaintiffs, the Veasey Plaintiffs, and the Plaintiff-Intervenors Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund propose that each party shall be permitted to propound twentyfive (25) interrogatories on any other party. Fed. R. Civ. P. 33(a)(1); S.D. Tex. R. 33.1. Defendants believe that Plaintiff and Plaintiff-Intervenors’ proposal is not equitable. That proposal would allow hundreds of interrogatories to be propounded on Defendants while limiting Defendants to a fraction of that total to propound against the far more numerous party-opponents it faces in this litigation. Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 33(a)(1) allows the Court to provide for a different arrangement in situations such as this one. A far more equitable arrangement would be to mirror the arrangement laid out in Section 9(A)(b) of this report regarding Depositions of Fact Witnesses. Defendants propose that each side be given fifty (50) interrogatories, collectively, to propound on any other party.

The Plaintiff United States, Plaintiffs Texas NAACP, Plaintiff-Intervenors Texas League of Young Voters, and Defendants the State of Texas et al. agree on all but a few of the proposed dates in a schedule.

b. Depositions of Fact Witnesses: Notwithstanding the limits set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 30(a)(2), Plaintiffs, Plaintiff-Intervenors, and MovantIntervenors Texas Association of Hispanic Judges and Commissioners (if intervention is granted) shall be permitted to depose sixty (60) fact witnesses collectively. Likewise, Defendants and Movant-Intervenor True the Vote (if intervention is granted) shall be permitted to depose sixty (60) fact witnesses collectively. The parties will attempt to coordinate the issuance of notices and subpoenas for depositions so as to avoid duplication of effort and promote efficiency. The parties will attempt to coordinate the scheduling of depositions in advance of submitting notices for deposition. c. Discovery Cut-Off Date: The plaintiff United States, the plaintiffs in Texas NAACP, Plaintiff-Intervenors Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund, and the Defendants State of Texas et al. propose the following: fact discovery shall conclude on August 15, 2014; expert discovery shall conclude on November 21, 2014; and the parties may conduct fact discovery limited to the 2014 November general election between October 1, 2014 and December 23, 2014. The plaintiff United States further proposes that, notwithstanding Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 33(b)(2), 34(b)(2)(A), during this supplemental discovery period, the responding party must serve or produce, where applicable, answers, objections, and responsive documents within twenty-one (21) days. The Veasey plaintiffs propose that fact discovery shall conclude on May 2, 2014, and expert discovery shall conclude on July 15, 2014. d. Federal Rule 26(a)(2) Disclosure (Experts): The plaintiff United States, the plaintiffs in Texas NAACP, the PlaintiffIntervenors Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund, and Defendants State of Texas et al. propose that experts and expert reports shall be disclosed as required by Rule 26(a)(2) by September 5, 2014; rebuttal experts and rebuttal reports shall be disclosed by October 6, 2014; and surrebuttal experts and surrebuttal reports shall be disclosed by October 31, 2014. The Veasey plaintiffs propose that experts and expert reports shall be disclosed by May 9, 2014; rebuttal experts and rebuttal reports shall be disclosed by June 6, 2014; and surrebuttal experts and surrebuttal reports shall be disclosed by June 13, 2014.

e. Privileges: Texas has indicated that it will assert several privileges, including legislative and deliberative process privilege, as grounds for withholding documents and deposition testimony from state legislators and their staff related 6

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 7 of 19

to the history of the state’s consideration and/or enactment of legislation requiring photographic identification, up to and including SB 14, as a requirement to cast a ballot in person. If Texas does make such an assertion, the plaintiff United States, the Veasey plaintiffs, the plaintiffs in Texas NAACP, and the Plaintiff-Intervenors Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund will likely move to compel at least a portion of the discovery withheld on those grounds. f. Dispositive Motions: The plaintiff United States, the plaintiffs in Texas NAACP, Plaintiff-Intervenors Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund, and the Defendants State of Texas et al. propose that dispositive motions shall be filed on January 12, 2015, responses shall be due February 11, 2015, and replies to responses shall be due February 23, 2015. The Veasey plaintiffs propose that dispositive motions shall be filed by July 22, 2014, responses shall be filed by August 4, 2014, and replies to responses shall be filed by August 11, 2014. g. Pretrial Order: The pretrial statement shall be due 14 days before the pretrial conference. Pursuant to Local Rule 46, objections to exhibits shall be made at least seven days before trial. h. Electronic Discovery: The parties have agreed on a proposed production format for documents and electronically stored information. See Agreement Concerning Production Format (Ex. 6).
i.

Protective Orders: The plaintiff United States has circulated several drafts of proposed protective orders to govern the exchange of certain confidential information, including but not limited to the identity and race or ethnicity of persons who may appear in certain state and federal databases. As of the date of this filing, the parties are still negotiating the terms of those proposed orders. The parties will advise the Court of the status of these negotiations at the upcoming Initial Pretrial and Scheduling conference scheduled for November 15, 2013.

B. When and to whom Plaintiff(s) anticipate(s) sending interrogatories. Interrogatories may be served by the parties at any time during fact discovery, provided that sufficient time is given to respond before the fact discovery cut-off (as modified below for the supplemental fact discovery period). The plaintiff United States, the NAACP Plaintiffs, the Veasey Plaintiffs, and Plaintiff-Intervenors Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund intend to serve interrogatories on the named defendants and state officials. C. When and to whom Defendant(s) anticipate(s) sending interrogatories. 7

Additionally, the plaintiff United States, the Veasey plaintiffs, the plaintiffs in Texas NAACP, and Plaintiff-Intervenors Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund intend to depose the fact and expert witnesses on whom Defendants intend to rely in support of their defenses. The plaintiff United States, the Veasey plaintiffs, the plaintiffs in Texas NAACP, and Plaintiff-Intervenors Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund will begin noticing depositions of fact witnesses after they have received and reviewed Defendants’ responses to written discovery requests and no earlier than December 1, 2013. E. When and from whom Defendant(s) anticipate(s) taking oral depositions.

UNITED STATES’ STATEMENT IN SUPPORT OF ITS PROPOSED SCHEDULE The scheduling order that the plaintiff United States requests (Ex. 1) requires the parties to be ready for trial as of March 17, 2015; the plaintiff Texas State Conference of NAACP and the plaintiff-intervenor Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund join in this request, and the defendant State of Texas does not oppose it. The proposed trial date is based on two factors: (1) the necessity that this Court has a full, complete, and accurate record upon which to render its decision; and (2) the litigation experience of several of the parties in the instant case in litigating a challenge to SB 14 under an expedited schedule last year. The scheduling order provides for nine months of fact discovery, followed by a period of expert discovery and limited fact discovery related to the 2014 general election, then an opportunity to file dispositive motions, and finally, preparation of the necessary pre-trial papers, such as motions in limine and proposed findings of fact and conclusions of law. At the outset, the United States fully understands the gravity of the issues that this case presents. The ability of all qualified citizens to participate fully and equally in the electoral process is fundamental. The United States will seek to avoid any unnecessary delay in providing that ability. At the same time, the United States recognizes that, regardless of eventual outcome, the final decision that this Court renders in this case must be based on the most complete record possible. The United States advocates for a sufficient amount of time to conduct the necessary comparisons of several million records across multiple state and federal databases, to subject the results of those comparisons to the appropriate statistical analyses, and to prepare the necessary reports for the Court’s consideration. In addition, the Court must determine whether a discriminatory purpose was among the motivating factors for enacting the legislation. These factors, standing alone, provide sufficient support for implementing the United States’ proposed schedule.

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-2 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 3 of 5

Examining the previous litigation over SB 14 should obviate any concern that the requested time for fact and expert discovery is not warranted. The State of Texas filed a declaratory judgment action under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1973c, seeking a judicial determination that SB 14 had neither a discriminatory purpose nor would have a discriminatory effect. Texas v. Holder, No. 1:12-cv-128 (D.D.C. 2012). On March 14, 2012, Texas requested a decision by a date that, if the court ruled in its favor, would permit it to implement SB 14 for the November 2012 election. The court granted this request, indicated that it would issue a decision by August 31, 2012, and ordered an expedited trial schedule. In the months that followed, the parties undertook complex and voluminous discovery. To determine which voters in Texas possessed requisite state forms of photographic identification under SB 14, the United States and defendant-intervenors sought data from Texas voter registration, driver license, and license to carry concealed handguns databases. Data discovery in this action will be even more complex. As a result of the expedited trial schedule, the parties did not exchange or present expert testimony on the federal forms of photographic identification permitted by SB 14. Nor did the parties analyze data maintained by other federal agencies pertaining to certain voters with documentary proof of a disability, who may obtain an exemption from SB 14’s identification requirements. In finding that Texas had not met its burden under Section 5, the court noted it did so without reliable expert evidence on the number of Texas registered voters who lacked one of the required forms of identification. Texas v. Holder, 888 F. Supp. 2d 113, 138 (D.D.C. 2012). The court observed that the record was incomplete because Texas had sought and received an expedited schedule at the expense of obtaining data related to federal forms of identification. Id. at 120; see also id. at 132.

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-2 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 4 of 5

Here, Texas has already indicated that it will seek data from five federal agencies related to federal forms of allowable photographic identification under SB 14 and exemptions from SB 14’s identification requirements based on disability status. The agencies are the Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs, Social Security Administration, State Department, and the Citizenship and Immigration Services. None of these agencies produced any information during the Section 5 declaratory judgment action. This has the potential to magnify the data discovery issues considerably. As with the state databases, these are massive databases that contain large quantities of personal identification information, statutorily protected from disclosure under federal law. Although the parties have already started discussions as to appropriate protective orders and methods of production, it is likely that disputes will arise concerning the appropriate scope and relevance of the discovery that Texas will seek. Based on our past experiences, these disputes are likely to be complex and resolving them will be time consuming. For example, during a seven-week period, the court hearing the Section 5 declaratory judgment action held six telephonic conferences related to protective orders and discovery of data maintained by Texas. Once these issues are resolved, experts will require ample time to analyze the data and produce reports, ensuring that this Court will have a complete and accurate record to make the requisite factual findings. The period of fact discovery included in the United States’ proposed schedule also anticipates a sufficient period of time to resolve issues related to legislative privilege, deliberative process, and other privileges. In Texas v. Holder, the United States sought discovery from Texas legislators and staff and from executive agencies related to Texas’s statutory burden under Section 5 to prove that SB 14 was not enacted with a discriminatory purpose. Texas broadly asserted legislative privilege, deliberative process, and other privileges as grounds for

3

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-2 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 5 of 5

withholding large categories of documents and deposition testimony. The legal issues surrounding these disputes were complicated and necessitated several rounds of briefing. The briefing of privilege issues occurred over the course of two months, from March 22, 2012, through May 30, 2012, and the court issued several orders related to privilege during that period up until June 7, 2012. In this action, the United States again intends to seek discovery from Texas legislators and staff and executive agencies to show that passage of SB 14 was motivated by discriminatory intent. Texas has stated that it will continue to assert, at least as broadly as it did during the declaratory judgment action, that such an inquiry is precluded by legislative privilege. Because the United States expects that it will again be required to compel some portion of the discovery that Texas withholds on the basis of legislative or other privileges, its proposed schedule provides sufficient time for the parties to brief motions to compel, the Court to consider the arguments and issue orders, and the parties to conduct discovery based on those orders. In sum, the Court should enter a scheduling order that provides the parties with an adequate period of time to prepare a complete factual record and an adequate time for the Court to consider the issues that this complex litigation presents. The United States’ proposal is such a schedule.

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-4 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 2 of 4

THE VEASEY PLAINTIFFS’ POSITION WITH RESPECT TO SCHEDULING The Veasey plaintiffs propose a schedule that—unlike the other parties’ schedule—would provide an opportunity for plaintiffs to obtain relief on behalf of Texas voters in time for the November 2014 elections, the first major turnout elections in which Texas seeks to enforce the Voter ID law. The Veasey plaintiffs believe it is critically important to obtain a decision on SB 14’s validity before, not after, the first major elections, and they further believe it is feasible for the parties and the Court to have a trial on such a schedule. The Veasey plaintiffs filed their initial complaint on June 26, 2013, the day after the Supreme Court handed down its decision in Shelby County v. Holder, 133 S. Ct. 2612, and the State of Texas announced its intention to implement SB 14. This Court promptly entered a scheduling order in which trial was scheduled for June 2014. The Veasey plaintiffs then filed an amended complaint, and other parties filed complaints or sought to intervene, within 60 days thereafter. Thus, even if this Court’s initial scheduling order were pushed back by 60 days, the parties could still have a trial in time for a decision before the November 2014 elections. Under the schedule proposed by the other parties, however, trial would not occur until March 2015. Expert discovery and some factual discovery would also extend beyond the November 2014 elections. The Court should resist adopting such a schedule at this time. Obviously, if the Court adopts the Veasey plaintiffs’ schedule, circumstances along the way may indicate that a pre-November 2014 trial is not possible. That issue, however, would remain open for the parties and the Court to consider as circumstances develop. Contrariwise, if the Court adopts the March 2015 trial schedule now, the possibility of a pre-election decision is foreclosed. The Veasey plaintiffs submit that the Court would best serve the parties and the people of Texas by doing all that is possible to ensure, rather than foreclose, the opportunity to decide this case before the next major election in November 2014.

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-4 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 3 of 4

Accordingly, the Veasey plaintiffs propose the following schedule:
Initial Disclosures Due Fact Discovery Ends Expert Reports Due State’s Expert Rebuttal Reports Due Plaintiffs’ Expert Reply Reports Due Expert Witness Discovery Deadline Dispositive Motions Due 1 Dispositive Motion Responses Due Replies to Dispositive Responses Due Trial November 21, 2013 May 2, 2014 May 9, 2014 June 6, 2014 June 13, 2014 July 15, 2014 July 22, 2014 August 4, 2014 August 11, 2014 September 2, 2014

In proposing the foregoing schedule, the Veasey plaintiffs are mindful of the need to develop a complete factual record in this case, but believe this schedule would permit the development of such a record. Adopting the Veasey plaintiffs’ proposed schedule does not guarantee that the litigation process will be problem-free. Texas will be objecting to some discovery based on legislative privilege. Texas and the United States will be producing data from large databases that will take time and effort to compile. But the Court could decide disputes over these issues early to ensure that the discovery process moves along quickly and smoothly. Indeed, the D.C. court in the Section 5 Voting rights Act case monitored the case closely and quickly resolved discovery disputes by telephone conferences.
The schedule includes time for a dispositive motion, such as a summary judgment motion, as well as Daubert motions relating to expert testimony. As to the summary judgment issue, the schedule contemplates that the Court might well choose to “carry the motion with the case,” i.e., hear the evidence before deciding the motion. In this complex case involving fundamental rights of Texas voters, surely a court would be on sound ground in holding that the fullest possible record would best serve the interests of justice. Likewise, as to any Daubert motions, the Court might choose to decide those motions at the optimum time, i.e., as the case develops and the evidence is presented, rather than in isolation ahead of time.

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-4 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 4 of 4

In support of the Veasey plaintiffs’ proposed schedule, it is important to note that the parties are not starting from scratch in this case. A three-judge federal court in Washington, D.C. held a week-long trial in July 2012 and concluded that the Texas photo voter ID law discriminated against minority voters. The parties took dozens of depositions in that case, and the record included hundreds of exhibits and hundreds of pages of trial testimony. The significant evidence the parties have already amassed should allow a shorter discovery schedule here, and a trial before the November 2014 elections.

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-6 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 4 of 18

shall be produced in native form. Native files shall be saved in a directory named NATIVE with the proper Windows-associated extension. 2. The parties agree to produce all imaged documents with a legible, unique page identifier

(“Bates Number”) electronically “burned” onto the image in the lower right hand corner or—if placement in the lower right hand corner would obliterate, conceal, or interfere with any information from the source document—another blank portion of the TIFF image. The Bates numbering convention shall be in the format “XXX########” where “XXX” represents the short character abbreviation for the producing party and “########” represents the eight-digit sequential number of the page being produced by that party. Documents produced by the parties shall be abbreviated as follows: Veasey Plaintiffs = VES, United States of America = USA, Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund = LYV, Texas State Conference of NAACP Branches = TSC, and Defendants = TEX. For example, the first Bates labeled document produced by the United States should be labeled “USA00000001.” Images shall be named as the [Bates Number].tif or [Bates Number].jpg. Native files shall be named as [Bates Number].ext, where “ext” denotes the native file extension. 3. The parties agree to produce documents on CD-ROM, DVD, or external hard drive (the

“Production Media”), depending on the volume of the production. Each piece of Production Media shall identify a production number corresponding to the production “wave” and a number of the volume of material in the wave. For example, if the first production wave by a party comprises document images on three hard drives, the party shall label each hard drive in the following manner in numeric sequence: “001.001”; “001.002”; “001.003.” If the second production comprises three DVDs, the party shall label each DVD in the following manner in numeric sequence: “002.001”; 002.002”; “002.003.” Additional information that shall be

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-6 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 5 of 18

identified on the physical Production Media includes: (1) the case number, (2) the producing party’s name, and (3) the production date. Where practicable, the type of materials on the media (e.g., “Documents”, “OCR Text”, etc.) and the Bates Number range of the materials on the Production Media shall also be denoted thereon; where such material cannot reasonably be listed on the Production Media, they shall be provided in an accompanying letter. 4. The parties agree not to produce documents or ESI using FTP, SFTP, or other hosted

locations without notifying all parties. All such productions must include a single archive file per production wave (e.g., .zip, .rar, or .cab), labeling of such archives in numerical sequence in accordance with paragraph 4, supra, and immediate notice to all parties after a new archive has been uploaded to a hosted location. All requirements of this agreement shall apply to any production using FTP, SFTP, or other hosted locations. 5. The parties shall produce an “image cross reference file” in Concordance Opticon .log

format, to accompany the produced images. The image cross reference file shall provide the Bates Numbers, relative path to images, and document break indicators. The image cross reference file shall be provided in a directory named DATA. 6. The parties shall produce a “load file” containing the fields specified in Attachment A.

The load file shall be provided in a directory named DATA, in a Concordance .DAT file format with standard delimiters. The parties agree not to include OCR/extracted text in the .DAT file. 7. For documents that exist natively in electronic format and that have not been redacted,

the parties shall produce extracted text files reflecting the full text that was electronically extracted from the original native file. For all scanned hard-copy documents, any electronic documents that require redaction prior to production and native files for which native text is not available (e.g., graphic files and some PDFs), the parties will produce corresponding Optical

4

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-6 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 6 of 18

Character Recognition (“OCR”) text files. The OCR and extracted text files shall be produced in ASCII text format and shall be labeled and produced on Production Media in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 3, above. These text files will be named with the unique Bates Number of the first page of the corresponding document followed by the extension “.txt.” The OCR and extracted text files shall be produced in a manner suitable for importing the information into Concordance. OCR and extracted text files shall be saved in a directory named TEXT. All documents should have an accompanying text file, even if that file is of zero size. 8. Irrespective of which party issued the requests for production of documents, tangible

things, and ESI, the producing party shall serve a copy of responsive production to each of the other parties. Format for the Production of ESI 9. E-mail will be produced as image files with related searchable text and available

metadata as described in Attachment A. 10. All spreadsheets, e.g., Excel or Quattropro, should be produced only in native format

with related searchable text and available metadata as described in Attachment A. Spreadsheets should not be imaged, but a placeholder image must be included to represent the spreadsheet. 11. All presentations, e.g., Powerpoint, should be produced only in native format with related

searchable text and available metadata as described in Attachment A. Presentations should not be imaged, but a placeholder image must be included to represent the presentation. 12. The parties will meet and confer regarding the production of video, audio, and any file

stored in a proprietary formats (i.e., non-Microsoft or Corel Suite compatible files). Any such conference shall be held within fourteen (14) days (unless the parties agree to a later date) of identification of such materials in initial disclosures, a direct request for the production of such

5

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-6 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 7 of 18

materials, or a determination by a producing party that such materials are responsive to a broader request, and any such conference shall include the custodians of the materials, as well as technicians with sufficient knowledge to explain the content and format of the material at issue. 13. The parties will meet and confer regarding the production of records or data from systems

of record, databases, or federal agency comparisons in an agreed upon format. Any such conference shall be held within fourteen (14) days (unless the parties agree to a later date) of identification of databases in initial disclosures, a direct request for the production of databases, or a determination by a producing party that databases are responsive to a broader request, and any such conference shall include the custodians of the databases, as well as technicians with sufficient knowledge to explain the content and format of the databases. 14. Other electronic documents not specifically discussed elsewhere will be produced as

image files with related searchable text and available metadata as described in Attachment A. If said documents in their original form cannot be converted to TIFF as described above, the parties will promptly meet and confer concerning the form of such production. 15. Documents with children (e.g., email with attachments, archive files, and files with

embedded documents) shall be treated as separate documents. Each document (parent and child) shall have the same attachment range as a way of identifying the group, as specified in the Attachment Range field of Attachment A. 16. In the event that a party needs to redact a portion of a document for which only a native

file is produced (e.g., Excel and PowerPoint), the parties will meet and confer regarding production of the redacted document.

6

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-6 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 8 of 18

17.

Encryption or password protection of any file is to be removed or the passwords

provided. If software is required to open encrypted files, the party producing the encrypted files must provide the software. Search of Electronically Stored Information 18. To the extent that any party intends to limit the scope of a response to a request for

production through the use of search terms, the parties agree to meet and confer regarding the responding party’s search of ESI, including the party’s technological search capability and the most effective means of defining search criteria, such as date ranges, custodians, and key words. 19. The parties agree that the use of an agreed-on search process or set of search criteria shall

not be construed as a waiver of any party’s right to request subsequent searches and productions, particularly where there is a showing that the agreed-to search process and criteria have resulted in inadequate productions or failed to identify relevant materials. The parties also reserve their right to object to any additional requests or subsequent searches. 20. The parties agree that documents identified by search terms may be reviewed for

privilege, confidentiality, relevance, or responsiveness prior to production. Deduplication 21. The parties agree to use MD-5 hash values to deduplicate exact duplicate documents

across custodians. As noted in Attachment A, MD-5 hash values will be calculated at the time of collection or processing for all categories of ESI. Paper Documents 22. The parties agree to produce hard-copy documents as TIFF or JPEG files, as described in

paragraphs 1-3, above.

7

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-6 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 9 of 18

23.

To the extent possible, the parties will endeavor to apply unitization practices consistent

with the following description: Each page of a hard copy document shall be scanned into an image and if a document is more than one page, the unitization of the document and any attachments shall be maintained as it existed in the original when creating the image file. For documents that contain fixed notes, (e.g., post-it notes), the pages will be scanned both with and without the notes and those pages will be treated as part of the same document. The relationship of documents in a document collection (e.g., cover letter and enclosures, email and attachments, binder containing multiple documents, or other documents where a parent-child relationship exists between the documents) shall be maintained through the scanning or conversion process. If more than one level of parent-child relationship exists, documents will be kept in order, but all will be treated as children of the initial parent document. Such information shall be produced in conformity with the Attachment Range field in Attachment A in a manner which enables the parent-child relationship among documents in a document collection to be reconstituted by the receiving party in Concordance. Privilege Logs 24. The parties agree that for each document, tangible thing, or ESI withheld based on an

asserted claim of privilege or protection, the party asserting the privilege must produce a privilege log pursuant to Rule 26(b)(5)(a) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. At minimum, the privilege log must contain a Bates range, the type of document or ESI, the title of the document or ESI, the date of the creation or transmission of the document or ESI, the author or authors of the document or ESI, the recipients of the document or ESI (including individuals copied or blind-copied), whether the document or ESI contains attachments, the privilege or privileges claimed, and the basis for the assertion of privilege or protection.

8

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-6 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 10 of 18

25.

The parties agree to provide sufficient information privilege logs to establish the elements

of each asserted privilege. See, e.g., Taylor Energy Co. v. Underwriters at Lloyds of London, No. C.A. 09-6383, 2010 WL 3952208 (E.D. La. Oct. 7, 2010). However, the Parties need not note on a privilege log any document—including but not limited to draft documents—exchanged solely among counsel, individuals working directly on behalf of counsel in connection with this litigation (e.g., paralegals, analysts, and litigation support staff), or supervisory staff of the U.S. Department of Justice or the Office of the Texas Attorney General. 26. E-mail attachments must be separately identified and described if they are withheld based

on an assertion of privilege or protection. Inadvertent Production of Documents and Clawback 27. The parties agree that a disclosure of communications, documents, tangible things, and

ESI covered by the attorney-client privilege, work product protection, or governmental privileges does not operate as a waiver in this proceeding if (1) the disclosure is inadvertent and is made in connection with this litigation or prior proceedings under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1973c, and (2) the holder of the privilege or protection took reasonable precautions to prevent disclosure and took reasonably prompt measures—once the holder knew or should have known of the disclosure—to rectify the error. 28. Any party receiving material it believes may have been inadvertently produced that

includes privileged or protected information shall promptly notify the producing party. Within fourteen (14) days after such notification, the producing party may request in writing that such materials be returned or destroyed. Upon such written request—and except in the event that the requesting party disputes the claim of privilege or protection—any materials that the producing party deems to contain inadvertently disclosed materials shall be promptly returned to the

9

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-6 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 11 of 18

producing party or destroyed at the producing party’s option. This includes all copies— electronic or otherwise—of any such materials and the parties agree that no further copies of the inadvertently disclosed materials will be made. In the event that copies of inadvertently produced materials that are privileged or protected are captured on a party’s back-up media used for disaster recovery, the parties will over-write those copies according to their established backup procedures. 29. If privileged or protected information is contained within an item of otherwise

discoverable material, the parties recognize that the requesting party may not be able to destroy only the portion of the item of the disclosed material that is privileged or protected. Instead, the requesting party may need to destroy the privileged or protected information along with all of the otherwise discoverable material within that item. Whenever that is the case, the producing party—within fourteen (14) days of notification of the inadvertent disclosure—shall provide the requesting party with a replacement copy of the item materials that are not privileged or protected and are otherwise discoverable. 30. In the event that the requesting party disputes the producing party’s assertions with

respect to the inadvertently disclosed material, such material shall be sequestered and retained by and under the control of the requesting party for the purpose of seeking determination of the issue from the Court. If the Court determines that privilege or protection has been waived or that the inadvertently disclosed material is not subject to by any applicable privilege or protection, the requesting party may use the material for any purposes otherwise permitted by law or rule. If the Court determines that the inadvertently disclosed material is subject to an applicable privilege or protection, the requesting party must return or destroy the materials at issue, as provided above.

10

Case 2:13-cv-00193 Document 61-6 Filed in TXSD on 11/04/13 Page 12 of 18

31.

If the producing party does not request the return or destruction of material within

fourteen (14) days of notification by the receiving party of the receipt of material it believes was inadvertently produced, the producing party waives any claim of privilege or protection as to the material. Sample Production 32. On or before fourteen (14) days following the effective date of this Agreement, the

parties shall exchange a sample production of documents formatted to be consistent with this Agreement. The sample production shall contain a combination of scanned paper files and ESI and shall include at least one spreadsheet and one email. The production need not be relevant to this case, as it is intended only to test the adequacy of the specifications in this Agreement and the compatibility of the parties’ systems. If any party reports problems with the sample productions, the parties shall confer regarding the terms of this agreement. Duty to Supplement Discovery Responses 33. The parties must supplement their disclosures and responses in a timely manner if a party

learns that a disclosure was materially incorrect or incomplete, in accordance with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(e)(1)(A). Supplementation must be made at appropriate intervals during discovery and with special promptness as the trial date approaches. Costs of Document Production 34. Each party shall bear the costs of producing its own documents, things, and ESI.

Requirement to Confer 35. Before filing any motion regarding the terms of this Agreement, compliance with this

Agreement, or any other discovery dispute, the parties will confer in a good faith attempt to resolve such disputes.
