The Court acknowledges receipt of Defendants’ motion to compel. (Doc. 10.)
It appears to the Court that Defendants’ motion may well be amenable to resolution
in whole or in part by agreement of counsel.
It is therefore ORDERED that counsel for the respective parties shall confer
within eleven (11) days and shall attempt to resolve their differences or reduce the
areas of dispute regarding the discovery request(s) at issue in the motion presently
pending before the Court. The Court will hear argument and rule upon the motion
ONLY if moving counsel files a statement with the Court certifying that after personal
consultation and sincere efforts to do so, counsel have been unable to resolve the
matter satisfactorily. Unless such a statement is filed on or before June 7, 2012, the
