To: Ray Artiano, Daniel Shinoff and Jeffery Morris
From: Maura Larkins

We’ve stuck to your Plan A script for four years now in this case, and I just want
to make sure that’s what you want to continue to do.  I’m happy with Plan A
because it has enabled me to learn so much and become involved in a bigger
world than when I was in my classroom.  That world keeps getting bigger and
more interesting, so I’m not entirely averse  to continuing in this manner.

On the other hand, I am, and always have been, very concerned about the
children in Chula Vista, and the teachers who are caught in a web of lies.  This
situation will be resolved one day, when the truth is exposed.  I think it would
benefit the children, teachers, and your clients if you would change to Plan B.  
We could work together to find a solution to this problem.  Why don’t we get a
mediator who will help us evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of our
respective positions, and agree on a plan that offers each of us the best that
we can hope to get from this case?

I am leaving on vacation shortly, so I plan to file my DOES motion before I go.  If
you want to get this case over with, please give me a call today.
