UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
No. C-11-00733 DMR
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S
DISCOVERY LETTER [DOCKET NO.
60] WITHOUT PREJUDICE AND
MANDATING THAT THE PARTIES
ATTEND A COURTHOUSE
The court is in receipt of Plaintiff’s December 15, 2011 discovery letter [Docket No. 60],
which blames defense counsel for Plaintiff’s failure to comply with the court’s standing order
requiring joint discovery letters. The court has repeatedly admonished both parties’ counsel for
failure to follow the court’s discovery dispute process [see Docket No. 28] and for their apparent
refusal to engage in mutually respectful and cooperative meet and confer discussions to resolve the
disputes. The court therefore ORDERS that Gary T. Lafayette and Donald T. McMillan
shall come to the courthouse with a laptop on December 20, 2011 at 9:30 a.m. and check in at the
undersigned’s chambers, where they shall meet and confer to resolve the disputes contained within
Plaintiff’s December 15, 2011 letter, which is hereby denied without prejudice. If the parties fail to
reach an agreement, they shall turn immediately to drafting a joint discovery letter conforming to
this court’s order at that time. Any joint letter shall be e-filed before the parties leave the
