about the scheduling issues before 30 January 2015 and file a joint status
report by 6 February 2015.
3. On mediation: the Court doesn't order a settlement conference unless
all parties want one. It can be done by the Magistrate Judge on the case (Ray,
J.) or by a private mediator, at the parties' election. Address this issue in the
February report too.

an addendum to its responding papers. Does MMIC agree that, under Ark.

that MMIC owes coverage for the Ray and Wilson cases, then Dr. Hasik will
be entitled to recover reasonable attorney's fees incurred (either by him or the
hospital) in defending those cases? If not, why not? Two-page addendum
