Double patenting genus-species

I have a double patenting rejection.  We do not have an assignment to the cited patent and therefore cannot file a terminal disclaimer to obviate the rejection.  Is there any way to get around a genus-species other than to kill the reference to prove it is non-enabling?  I do not have any new elements to add to the claims.
I appreciate any thoughts anyone might have as I am stumped.  of course, my clients really, really want to distinguish their invention from this patent.  Thank you!
