The parties have scheduled a mediation for November 10, 2008 before the Hon. Richard Hodge (Retired) of ADR Services, Inc. 2. In order to prepare for the November 10 mediation, the parties would like the flexibility of having certain settlement discussions among themselves prior to the mediation date without the concern that any such discussions would be excluded from the privileges and confidentiality provisions associated with a mediation, including without limitation, California Evidence Code 1115 et seq. 3. The parties therefore stipulate that any and all discussions, whether orally or in writing, concerning potential settlement of this matter prior to the date of the November 10 mediation shall be deemed to be protected by the same privileges and confidentiality provisions as would apply had those discussions taken place during the course of an actual mediation.
