SUBMIT CONFIDENTIAL SETTLEMENT
STATEMENT BY NOON ON MAY 17, 2017
COUNTY OF TULARE, CALIFORNIA, et
A settlement conference in this action is set for May 22, 2017, at 10:30 a.m. before the

were required to submit a confidential settlement statement to the Court five court days prior to
the conference date. (Id. at 6-7.) In this instance, the parties’ confidential settlement statements
were due May 15, 2017.
The Court has timely received the confidential statement from
Defendants, however no statement has been received from Plaintiff. On May 16, 2017, the
courtroom deputy reached out to Plaintiff’s counsel regarding the 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
meaningful to the parties and results in a greater likelihood of settlement success. Settlement is
extremely important in this district where the judges have one of the highest caseloads per judge
1 in the United States.
The settlement conference statement assists the Court in adequately
2 preparing for these matters. They are not pro forma.

4 settlement statement by noon on Wednesday, May 17, 2017. Failure to submit a confidential
5 statement in compliance with this order may result in the issuance of sanctions.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
