Subject: Potenial Employment Matter

Date: Tuesday, December 28, 2010, 3:45:47 PM PST

Dear Mr. Mitchell:

Thank you for contacting our firm regarding your potential employment action. Unfortunately, we will not be able to
prosecute your case and we are declining professional responsibility for the matter.

Please note that the law limits the time within which individuals may file a lawsuit. Allowing too much time to pass may
forever bar you from asserting your claim. The statute of limitations period for employment-related cases is complex,
and an individualized analysis of your particular situation is required. As a general rule, you may lose all or some of
your rights if you wait more than one year past the last wrongful act by the employer. After one year, you may or may
not have some rights you can pursue, but it is likely that your case will become more difficult.

In most instances, there are certain administrative requirements that must be exhausted before you can file a lawsuit
in a civil court. Please be advised that under the laws of the State of California, if you are claiming employment
discrimination based on age, sex, race, national origin, disability or other protected classification, you must file a
complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within 300 days of the discriminatory act
or the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) within one year of the discriminatory and/or
wrongful act.

The address and telephone number for the DFEH is:

611 West Sixth Street, Suite 1500

Los Angeles , California 90017-3116

(213) 439-6799

The address and telephone number for the EEOC is:

255 East Temple Street, 4th Floor

Los Angeles, California 90012

Fax: (213) 894-1118

The address and telephone number for the Los Angeles district office of the California Division of Labor Standards
Enforcement is:

Los Angeles, California 90013

For other causes of action, you may be required to file a lawsuit within one to four years from the date of termination or
other adverse employment decision or you may be barred forever from bringing a claim against the responsible party.
Thus, we urge you to either find another attorney or to file a claim on your own behalf if you think your case is
worthwhile to pursue until you secure legal representation. Shorter time periods may apply if you are a public
employee. Also, be aware that contracts or agreements between you and your employer may shorten the time period
you have to file or pursue your claims.

It is imperative that you contact another attorney immediately and seek legal advice with respect to your rights in this
matter. You may wish to contact the Los Angeles County Bar Referral Service to obtain a referral to another attorney
at (213) 243-1500 or the San Fernando Valley Bar Association’s Referral Service at (818) 227-0490. You may also
want to look at the California Employment Lawyers’ Association’s website at for member lawyers
who may be interested in discussing your case.

In declining to take your case, we are not expressing an opinion about the merits of your position, and our decision not
to accept this representation should not be interpreted as an adverse opinion about the merits of your case. Another
lawyer may reach a different conclusion or may wish to take the case, but you should seek additional counsel before
the deadline expires.

This firm handles a wide range of legal matters, including employment law, intellectual property litigation, healthcare
litigation, civil and business litigation, and commercial transactions. We wish you the best of success and hope that
you call on this firm again should the need ever arise.

Very truly yours,

Agnès Markarian Sullivan, Esq.
