1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 v. IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SASKIA RUSSELL, et al., Plaintiffs, NO. C08-5651 TEH ORDER FOR SUPPLEMENTAL BRIEFING FROM PLAINTIFFS UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, et al., Defendants. United States District Court 11 For the Northern District of California 12 The Court has reviewed Plaintiffs' application for an order approving minors' 13 compromise and Defendants' statement of conditional non-opposition thereto. Plaintiffs did 14 not file a reply. 15 The Court shares Defendants' concern that Plaintiffs' papers list the total amount of 16 the settlement as $250,000 but discuss distribution of only $200,000. If, as Defendants 17 surmise, the remaining $50,000 will be Plaintiff Saskia Russell's share of the settlement 18 proceeds, it appears that this Court's approval is unnecessary as to that portion because 19 Saskia Russell is not a minor. Nonetheless, the record should be clear as to the distribution 20 of the settlement, and the Court therefore orders Plaintiffs to file a supplemental declaration 21 explaining the $50,000 difference on or before August 20, 2010. 22 23 IT IS SO ORDERED. 24 25 Dated: 08/17/10 26 27 28 THELTON E. HENDERSON, JUDGE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
