STARBUCKS CORPORATION, aka

MATHEWS AND ASSOCIATES-2, LLC,
ORDER CONTINUING DEADLINE FOR
SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE AND
VACATING PRE-TRIAL AND TRIAL
(Doc. No. 52)
On July 5, 2017, the parties filed a joint stipulation seeking to continue the deadline for
the holding of a settlement conference and vacate the pre-trial and trial dates. (Doc. No. 52.) At
the hearing for the cross motions for summary judgment on June 20, 2017, the undersigned
“ordered the parties to participate in a settlement conference before a magistrate judge within six
weeks (i.e. August 1, 2017) . . . .” The undersigned also indicated that an order on the cross
motions for summary judgment would not issue until after a settlement conference was held in
this case. The court further “advised that it would permit the settlement conference to take place
in Sacramento, rather than Fresno, should the parties so choose.” (Id. at 1 (citing Doc. No. 50).)
The parties subsequently agreed to have the settlement conference held in Sacramento, but were
unable to agree on a date for that settlement conference within the required six week period. The
parties were thereafter provided additional dates by the court for a settlement conference to be
held in Fresno. However, as of June 26, 2017, a family medical situation requires counsel for
Starbucks to remain in the Sacramento, California area for the foreseeable future. Since there are
no available settlement conference dates in Sacramento within the six week period, the parties
have requested additional time to hold the settlement conference. The parties have stipulated that
they are amenable to vacating the pre-trial and trial dates and resetting those dates after the
settlement conference is held.
Accordingly, for the reasons set forth above and pursuant to the parties’ stipulation, the
1. Extends the deadline for the holding of a settlement conference to September 5, 2017
and directs the parties to coordinate a mutually agreeable date for that settlement
conference before a magistrate judge in the Sacramento Division of this court; and
2. Vacates the previously scheduled pre-trial conference and trial dates in this action with
those dates being re-scheduled if necessary following the settlement conference.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
