We have been in ongoing discussions with this group in an effort to promptly respond to its extremely broad request for documents, as well as the costs due to BREC as a result of their production. While we believe in transparency and strive to fulfill all reasonable requests for information, we are unable to comment further on this matter as we just received the lawsuit. We intend to respond to this lawsuit and look forward to addressing this matter in the court system.
