grounds upon which the claims are founded; a forthright evaluation of the
parties’ likelihood of prevailing on the claims and defenses; and a

An estimate of the cost and time to be expended for further discovery,
pretrial and trial.
The relief sought.
The party’s position on settlement, including present demands and offers
and a history of past settlement discussions, offers and demands.
Only if the Court finds that a statement submitted by Plaintiffs is meaningful will a further
settlement conference be set and once a date is set Defendants may be ordered to submit their
settlement statement should further issues need to be addressed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
