Lead trial counsel must attend. 25 To avoid any misunderstanding with respect to the final pretrial conference and trial, the 26 Court wishes to emphasize that all filings and appearances must be made — on pain of 27 dismissal, default or other sanction — unless and until a dismissal fully resolving the case is 28 received. It will not be enough to inform the clerk that a settlement in principle has been 1 reached or to lodge a partially executed settlement agreement or to lodge a fully executed 2 agreement (or dismissal) that resolves less than the entire case. Where, however, a 3 fully-executed and unconditional settlement agreement clearly and fully disposing of the entire 4 case is lodged reasonably in advance of the pretrial conference or trial and only a ministerial act 5 remains, the Court will arrange a status conference to work out an alternate procedure pending a 6 formal dismissal. 7 8 Please state whether the Court can be of further ADR assistance (but avoid stating offers, counteroffers or dollar amounts). 9 In this case, the Court wishes to consider the following additional trial procedures and desires that counsel meet and confer and reach a stipulation concerning whether and how to use 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 them: 12 1.
