The parties agreed to private mediation of this matter. The Court ordered the parties to hold their ADR session by December 28, 2009, which is 140 days from entry of the Court's Order dated August 10, 2009 (Docket # 19). The Court also ordered a Further Case Management Conference at 8:30 a.m. on January 8, 2010. (Docket # 26.) 3. At the time of the Court's Order, the parties were working on selecting a mediator. The parties have since agreed to use David Rotman for mediation. 4. All parties, including the mediator, Mr. Rotman, are available for mediation on March 8, 2010. 5. Accordingly, the parties respectfully request a continuation of the ADR deadline to March 10, 2010, or a date thereafter, to provide them with an opportunity to complete mediation. 6. The parties have been engaged in the limited pre-mediation discovery that was agreed upon in the parties' Joint Case Management Statement (Docket # 23). To date Plaintiff has not been satisfied that the pre-mediation discovery agreed to will produce information sufficient to allow him to negotiate a class-wide settlement in good faith. Accordingly, Plaintiff has propounded further discovery. Defendants disagree and reserve their defenses and objections. Defendants have offered alternatives to Plaintiff in an attempt to resolve the matter, and the parties will meet and confer regarding such discovery. Accordingly, an extension of the ADR deadline will allow the parties to hopefully resolve any discovery disputes and be better prepared to engage in a meaningful mediation process.
