Dear Catherine,

As I pointed out in our conversation, since there is a federal lawsuit involved, you should have your lawyer handling the communications between the parties. As per our conversation, the last part of this email is an outline of what we propose for settling the conflict between us.

In reference to paragraph 5, bear in mind we are in Hartsel Colorado. It is a three-hour drive (one-way) to the federal court in Denver. An entire day is lost filing one complaint. We don't feel the numbers are unreasonable.

If you, or your attorney, have any questions, you can reach me at 303-913- 6075.
