The undersigned parties hereby stipulate that:

1. The Court has jurisdiction over the subject matter of this action and over defendants Idaho Orthopaedic Society, Dr. Timothy Doerr, Dr. Jeffrey Hessing, Idaho Sports Medicine Institute, Dr. John Kloss, Dr. David Lamey, and Dr. Troy Watkins. Each defendant waives service of summons on the Complaint; and venue is proper in the District of Idaho.

2. A proposed Final Judgment in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A may be filed with this Court by the United States and may be entered by the Court, upon the motion of any party or upon the Court's own motion, at any time after compliance with the requirements of the Antitrust Procedures and Penalties Act, 15 U.S.C. § 16, and without further notice to any party or other proceedings, provided that the United States has not withdrawn its consent, which it may do at any time before the entry of the proposed Final Judgment by serving notice thereof on each Defendant and by filing that notice with the Court.

3. Each Defendant shall abide by and comply with the provisions of the proposed Final Judgment, pending the Judgment's entry by the Court, or until expiration of time for all appeals of any Court ruling declining entry of the proposed Final Judgment, and shall, from the date of the signing of this Stipulation by the parties, comply with all the terms and provisions of the proposed Final Judgment as though the same were in full force and effect as an order of the Court.

4. This Stipulation shall apply with equal force and effect to any amended proposed Final Judgment agreed upon in writing by the parties and submitted to the Court.

5. If (1) the proposed Final Judgment is not entered pursuant to this Stipulation and the time has expired for all appeals of any court ruling declining entry of the proposed Final Judgment, or (2) the United States has withdrawn its consent, and the Court has not otherwise ordered continued compliance with the terms and provisions of the proposed Final Judgment, then Defendants are released from all further obligations under this Stipulation and the making of this Stipulation shall be without evidentiary prejudice to any party in this or any other proceeding.

Respectfully submitted,
