San Francisco, CA 94102
Dear Honorable Judge Spero:

I am a partner at Knobbe, Martens, Olson & Bear, LLP, and one of the attorneys representing Defendant Handa Pharmaceuticals, LLC ("Handa") in connection with the above matter. I am also admitted to practice in this District. I write to request the Court's permission to appear on behalf of Handa at the Case Management Conference ("CMC") scheduled for this Friday, August 12, in place of lead counsel for Handa who has a conflict with another client matter.

If granted permission to attend the CMC by the Court, I will have authority to enter stipulations and make admissions on behalf of Handa pursuant to the Court's Standing Order regarding the Case Management Conference. Additionally, I have contacted counsel for all parties in this action and the related actions regarding the present request. None of the parties object to Handa's request. Thus, the Court's permission is respectfully requested.

Very truly yours

Payson LeMeilleur
