Dear Superintendent Iuppa:
Earlier this week we received by mail a copy of your Order on the various applications to intervene in the above-referenced matter. An element of that order is a request that the intervenors confer regarding the coordination of discovery. At this writing, we have received no notice regarding the scheduling of such a conference. Regardless, we wish to communicate to you, and by copies of this letter to the representatives of the other parties and intervenors, the views of our client Central Maine Healthcare Corporation.
As noted in our motion to intervene, Central Maine Healthcare Corporation's principal interest in the proceeding, an interest which you have recognized as justifying intervention as of right, is in the implications of the proceeding upon the ownership and future of Central Maine Partners Health Plan in which Central Maine Healthcare Corporation is a 50% owner. At the time we sought permission to intervene, we did not believe that our client's interests vis-a-vis Central Maine Partners Health Plan are likely to necessitate initiation of discovery on behalf of our client. Without waiving our right to do so in the event that perception changes, at present no discovery by our client is contemplated. In the event specific discovery by our client is indicated, we consider it unlikely in the extreme that it would duplicate discovery by other intervenors, and hereby undertake to make good faith efforts to avoid any such duplication.
Should the requested conference of intervenors take place, we will be communicating the above message at that time, but we felt that it should be communicated formally in writing in any event.
Very truly yours,
John C. Kane, Jr.
