VIII. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION OR EXPLANATIONS.

(lndicatepartofreport.)

Section V Notes:

(I) A few times each year, friends invite my spouse and me to sit with them at tables they have purchased at charity events. We occasionally invite friends to do the same, i.e., join us at tables we have purchased for charity events. Since my confirmation, each time a friend has invited us to sit at his/her table, my husband has made a contribution to the organization hosting the event equal to or greater than the fair market value of two tickets to the event. Each time, the invitation has come from a close friend whose friendship long predated my nomination. A few of those friends are lawyers and could someday represent clients in my court. To my knowledge, none of those friends was a party or represented clients in my court at the time of the event at which we sat at their table.

Section VII Notes:

(I)

Diamond Castle Partner IV, L.P. is a private equity fund that makes periodic capital calls. In response to capital calls, we invested an amount within category K

on

1/4/10

and an amount within category Jon

4/28, 6/10, 8/26

and

11/2/10.

(2)

TPG Partners V, L.P. is a private equity fund that makes periodic capital calls. In response to capital calls, we invested an amount within category Jon 2/17,

4120, 5120, 7123, and 7 /28/10.

(3) Although left the employ of Vinson & Elkins, L.L.P. in

2006,.

continues to participate in the Vinson & Elkins, L.L.P. Retirement Plans A and

B. These are individual account defined contribution plans qualified under I.R.C. Section 401(a). The contributions by the firm were fixed

employment by the firm. Retirement Plan A has a salary reduction I.R.C. Section 401(k) feature. The Trustee of the Plan is JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.,

Houston, Texas. has no investment discretion with respect to the investments of this defined contribution plan, except for the after-tax contribution

component as to w 1c has the liminted discretion to choose any of a number of funds that are available. The General Investment Fund is mostly an equity

fund managed by severa outside investment advisors. I cannot determine how much of the change in total market value since last year was due to interest and/or

dividends. JP Morgan Chase informed that they cannot provide me with this information.

(4) Annual payment (beginning 1/15/15) ofa fixed amount times years of service starting 1/1/95. Present value was provided by

l••••I

former law firm.

(5)

Wegoma Berkshire VII, L.P. is a private equity fund that makes periodic capital calls. In response to capital calls, we invested an amount within category J on

4/20, 7 /28, and 12/8/ l 0.

(6)

For the item in line

55,

Pacific Life Insurance Co. says that it cannot provide the income for any year. Company representatives state that because I hold

an interest in an index fund in which the cash value of an insurance policy has been invested, and not an individual taxable investment, there are no individual dividends or realized gains to report; all that is reported are gains or losses to the policy cash value. In addition, the company states, under applicable government regulations, an insurance policy is considered an asset, not an investment.

(7) Nexus BT, LLLP was consolidated into Nexus Resources LLC effective 12/31/10.

VIII. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION OR EXPLANATIONS.

(Jndicate partofreport.)

Section V Notes:

(I)

A few times each year, friends invite my spouse and me to sit with them at tables they have purchased at charity events. We occasionally invite friends to do

the same, i.e., join us at tables we have purchased for charity events. Since my confirmation, each time a friend has invited us to sit at his/her table, my husband has made a contribution to the organization hosting the event equal to or greater than the fair market value of two tickets to the event. Each time, the invitation has come from a close friend whose friendship long predated my nomination. A few of those friends are lawyers and could someday represent clients in my court. To my knowledge, none of those friends was a party or represented clients in my court at the time of the event at which we sat at their table.

(6) For the item in line 55, Pacific Life Insurance Co. says that it cannot provide the income for any year. Company representatives state that because I hold

an interest in an index fund in which the cash value of an insurance policy has been invested, and not an individual taxable investment, there are no individual dividends or realized gains to report; all that is reported are gains or losses to the policy cash value. In addition, the company states, under applicable government regulations, an insurance policy is considered an asset, not an investment.
