BROWN JR., et al., 10 ORDER TO MEET AND CONFER RE: PLAINTIFFS’ MOTION REGARDING VALLEY FEVER Defendants. 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 8 NO. C01-1351 TEH 12 On March 20, 2013, Plaintiffs’ filed a motion concerning Valley Fever at Pleasant 13 Valley State Prison and Avenal State Prison. It is unclear from the papers whether the parties 14 have ever directly communicated about Plaintiffs’ concerns. See Specter Decl.

In addition, the Court finds that the court 19 experts’ opinion would be helpful to the resolution of Plaintiffs’ motion. 20 Accordingly, with good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the current 21 briefing and hearing schedule is VACATED. The parties shall meet and confer with each 22 other, the Receiver, and the court experts to attempt to resolve the issues raised by Plaintiffs’ 23 motion. The Receiver shall facilitate this process, which shall be completed by April 19, 24 2013. If the parties can completely resolve or at least narrow their dispute, then they shall 25 file an appropriate stipulation on or before April 24, 2013. If any issues remain for 26 resolution by this Court, then the following shall be the schedule: 27 1. Defendants’ opposition shall be filed on or before May 6, 2013. 28 2. Plaintiffs’ reply shall be filed on or before May 13, 2013. 1 3. The experts shall file a report expressing their opinion and recommendations on or 2 before May 24, 2013. If the Receiver wishes to file a response to Plaintiffs’ motion, he may 3 do so on or before the same date. 4 4. The hearing shall be held on June 17, 2013, at 10:00 AM. 5 Finally, the Court clarifies that the appointment of the Receiver superseded the 6 provisions of the June 13, 2002 Order Appointing Experts that allowed the parties to request 7 evaluations from the court experts or to request that the experts attend negotiations, 8 medication sessions, or court hearings. 9 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 IT IS SO ORDERED. 12 Dated: 03/21/13 13 THELTON E.
