1 2 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 3 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 4 5 6 VINCENT A. CEFALU, 7 Plaintiff, 8 9 v. ERIC H. HOLDER, JR., U.S. Attorney General, U.S. Department of Justice, NO. C12-0303 TEH ORDER VACATING TRIAL DATE Defendant. 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 12 13 On April 15, 2013, the parties were referred, with their mutual consent, to Magistrate 14 Judge Maria-Elena James for a mandatory settlement conference to occur no later than five 15 calendar days before the October 21, 2013 pretrial conference. Apr. 15, 2013 Order for 16 Pretrial Prep. ¶ 8 (Docket No. 69). At the time of referral, the Court advised the parties to 17 contact Judge James well in advance so that they could secure a settlement conference date 18 on her calendar. 19 It appears that the parties failed to do so, and they are now unable to schedule a 20 settlement conference before Judge James prior to the court-ordered deadline. Sept. 19, 2013 21 Stip. re: Settlement Conf. at 2 (Docket No. 132). The parties therefore request that the Court 22 refer the matter for a settlement conference on October 3, 2013, before Magistrate Judge 23 Donna M. Ryu or on October 4, 2013, before Magistrate Judge Howard R. Lloyd because the 24 parties are available on those dates and those judges do not have any conflicts on their 25 publicly available calendars. Id. However, the judges might not actually be available on 26 those dates, and, in any event, the parties originally agreed to a settlement conference before 27 Judge James and bear responsibility for being unable to schedule a timely settlement 28 conference with her. 1 Accordingly, with good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the parties 2 shall schedule a mandatory settlement conference before Magistrate Judge James as soon as 3 her schedule will allow. The October 21, 2013 pretrial conference and October 29, 2013 trial 4 date are VACATED. On or before October 8, 2013, the parties shall file a joint case 5 management statement setting forth their settlement conference date, proposed new trial date, 6 and proposed new estimate for the length of the trial following this Court’s granting in part 7 Defendant’s motion for summary judgment. 8 9 IT IS SO ORDERED. 11 Dated: 09/24/13 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 12 THELTON E. HENDERSON, JUDGE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
