NATIONAL PARKS SERVICE, et al.,
A settlement conference in this action is set for September 14, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. before
18 the undersigned. (ECF No. 34.) Pursuant to the December 14, 2016 scheduling order, the

20 prior to the conference date. (ECF No. 33 at 6-7.) In this instance, the parties’ confidential
21 settlement statements were due September 8, 2017.
The Court has timely received the
22 confidential statement from Defendants, however no statement has been received from Plaintiff.
23 On September 12, 2017, the courtroom deputy reached out to Plaintiff’s counsel regarding the
24 failure to submit a confidential settlement statement and has received no response.
This Court spends considerable time preparing for settlement conference so as to make it
26 meaningful to the parties and results in a greater likelihood of settlement success. Settlement is
27 extremely important in this district where the judges have one of the highest caseloads per judge
28 in the United States.
The settlement conference statement assists the Court in adequately
1 preparing for these matters. They are not pro forma.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff shall submit his confidential
3 settlement statement by the end of the day on Tuesday, September 12, 2017. Failure to submit a
4 confidential statement in compliance with this order may result in the issuance of sanctions.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
