Accordingly, a 16 settlement conference is set for May 31, 2017 at 11:30 a.m. in Courtroom 9 before Magistrate 17 Judge Stanley A. Boone.

The statement 25 1 Insurance carriers, business organizations, and governmental bodies or agencies whose settlement agreements are 26 subject to approval by legislative bodies, executive committees, boards of directors or the like shall be represented by a person or persons who occupy high executive positions in the party organization and who will be directly 27 involved in the process of approval of any settlement offers or agreements. To the extent possible the representative shall have the authority, if he or she deems it appropriate, to settle the action on terms consistent with the opposing 28 party's most recent demand. 1 1 should not be filed with the Clerk of the Court nor served on any other party, although the 2 parties may file a Notice of Lodging of Settlement Conference Statement.
