DISCOVERY Discovery motions referred to this Court and noticed for a hearing by a district judge will follow the briefing schedule set by the district judge, but the hearing will be rescheduled in accordance with this Court’s civil motion calendar. For all other discovery disputes in cases that have been referred to this Court, the parties must meet and confer to attempt to resolve their dispute as described below. If the parties are unable to reach a resolution through this process, they must file in ECF a joint statement of five pages or less that: (1) explains the nature and status of the dispute; (2) describes each unresolved issue; (3) summarizes each party’s position with respect to each unresolved issue; and (4) states each party’s proposed compromise with respect to each unresolved issue. The parties must not attach any declarations, affidavits, or exhibits to the statement. In the rare event that the parties are unable to file a joint statement, each party may file in ECF a statement of two pages or less. Upon review of the statement(s), the Court will advise the parties regarding the need, if any, for more briefing, a hearing, or a telephonic conference. MEET AND CONFER REQUIREMENT The parties must attempt to resolve their disputes informally by meeting and conferring in person. If counsel are located outside of the Bay Area, the parties must confer by telephone. A mere exchange of letters, emails, telephone calls, or facsimile transmissions does not satisfy the requirement to meet and confer. IT IS SO ORDERED.
