1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 EUREKA DIVISION 7 8 TIMOTHY PEOPLES, Case No. 12-cv-02163-CRB (NJV) Plaintiff, 9 ORDER DENYING REQUEST FOR RECUSAL v. 10 11 MAKELA, et al., Re: Dkt. No. 197 United States District Court Northern District of California Defendants. 12 13 14 This matter is set for a settlement conference on May 9, 2017. The court set a related 15 telephonic status conference in the matter for April 25, 2017. However, because of a technical 16 error, both of the parties were disconnected from the telephonic status conference and the status 17 conference was not held. On May 1, 2017, Plaintiff filed a document requesting that the 18 undersigned recuse himself from the settlement conference, claiming that the failure to hold the 19 status conference shows prejudice and bias. 20 The undersigned finds no merit to Plaintiff's claim. No substantive matters were to be 21 decided at the status conference, as it was simply a status conference to confirm the parties' 22 attendance at the upcoming settlement conference. Finding no basis for recusal, Plaintiff's request 23 is HEREBY DENIED. 24 25 26 27 28 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: May 3, 2017 ______________________________________ NANDOR J. VADAS United States Magistrate Judge
