ORDER Re: Settlement Proceedings by United States Magistrate Judge Fernando M. Olguin. IT IS ORDERED as follows: 1. The parties and their trial counsel shall appear for the Settlement Conference at 2:00 p.m., March 1, 2006, in the United States Courthouse, 312 North Spring Street, Courtroom F, 9th Floor, Los Angeles, California. 2. Counsel who will try the case must be present. In addition, the person with full settlement authority shall be present at the conference. 7. Each party shall deliver to the chambers of the Magistrate Judge a Confidential Settlement Conference Statement on or before February 22, 2006, at 4:00 p.m. 8. In the event any party believes, in good faith, that a settlement conference at this point in the litigation would not be meaningful, the party may contact Judge Olguin's courtroom deputy clerk and inform her of this information. 9. Counsel appearing without their clients (whether or not counsel purportedly have been given settlement authority) will cause the settlement conference to be canceled. The noncomplying party, attorney, or both, may be assessed the costs and expenses incurred by other parties as a result of such cancellation and rescheduling. 10. The failure of any party or attorney to comply with the requirements of this Order may result in sanctions being imposed. The sanctions may include, but not be limited to, the fees and costs expended by the other parties in preparing and attending the Settlement Conference. (See document for further details.)(pcl, )
