ORDER EXCUSING ATTENDANCE AT SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE. Signed by Judge Elizabeth D Laporte on 08/18/2011. (kns, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 8/18/2011)

LG ELECTRONICS U.S.A., INC.
ORDER EXCUSING ATTENDANCE
AT SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE
TO ALL PARTIES AND COUNSEL AND PARTIES OF RECORD:
By letter dated August 11, 2011, Defendant LG Electronics requested that its representative be
excused from personally appearing at the settlement conference scheduled for August 24, 2011.
Plaintiff informed the Court that he did not oppose the telephonic appearance. The Court denied
Defendant’s August 11, 2011 request without prejudice. Defendant renewed its request for a telephonic
appearance in a settlement conference statement lodged on August 16, 2011.
Upon consideration of the renewed request, the Court finds good cause for excusing personal
attendance. Therefore, it is hereby ORDERED that Defendant’s representative be available by
telephone from 9:30 a.m. Pacific Standard Time until further notice on August 24, 2011.
If the Court concludes that the absence of Defendant’s representative is interfering with the
settlement conference, the Court may continue the settlement conference and may order personal
attendance by each party including Defendant’s representative.
Dated: August 18, 2011
ELIZABETH D. LAPORTE
United States Magistrate Judge
