UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 12-cv-02163-CRB (NJV)
ORDER DENYING REQUEST FOR
MAKELA, et al.,
Re: Dkt. No. 197
United States District Court
Northern District of California
This matter is set for a settlement conference on May 9, 2017. The court set a related
telephonic status conference in the matter for April 25, 2017. However, because of a technical
error, both of the parties were disconnected from the telephonic status conference and the status
conference was not held. On May 1, 2017, Plaintiff filed a document requesting that the
undersigned recuse himself from the settlement conference, claiming that the failure to hold the
status conference shows prejudice and bias.
The undersigned finds no merit to Plaintiff's claim. No substantive matters were to be
decided at the status conference, as it was simply a status conference to confirm the parties'
attendance at the upcoming settlement conference. Finding no basis for recusal, Plaintiff's request
is HEREBY DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: May 3, 2017
