Joint Case Management Statement and Initial Case Management Conference
The Northern District Court requires civil litigants to meet and confer regarding specified
topics, including alternative dispute resolution and the discovery of electronically stored
information (“ESI”), prior to the filing of the initial joint case management statement.
Civil litigants before this Court must review and comply with the terms of the Northern
District Standing Order For All Judges Concerning Joint Case Management Statements.
In addition, the parties must review in detail the Northern District’s ESI Guidelines and
Checklist for Rule 26(f) conferences. The Court discourages deviation from the ESI
Guidelines absent good cause. Failure to meet and confer regarding the required topics
prior to the initial case management conference, including alternative dispute resolution
and ESI, may, in the reasonable exercise of the Court’s discretion, result in sanctions or
Courtesy Copies and Proposed Orders
The Court requires courtesy copies only of publicly filed motions and related briefing,
including attachments, exhibits, declarations, and other accompanying material. The
Court discourages the service of courtesy copies of any other documents, except when
specifically requested by the Court or required by the Court’s pretrial standing order.
Courtesy copies shall be mailed via first class mail on the date of electronic filing unless
the document was filed within 14 days of the motion hearing, in which case the filing
party shall serve its courtesy copy by noon on the business day following the date of
filing. For documents in the last category that are electronically filed on Friday, the
Court appreciates courtesy copies by 5:00 p.m. on the same day.
The quality, condition, and labeling of binders, when used, should be such that the Court
can easily transport and review the binders’ contents. Whenever possible, the spine of a
binder should not exceed three inches in width.
A party may not file a motion regarding a discovery dispute without leave of Court. If a
discovery dispute arises, the parties shall meet and confer in good faith to attempt to
resolve the dispute. If the parties are unable to reach a resolution through this process,
they shall file a joint letter brief of eight pages or less that describes each disputed issue.
The joint letter brief must be filed electronically in the Civil Events category of Motions
and Related Filings > Motions – General > Discovery Letter Brief. After the letter brief
is submitted, the Court will advise the parties as to how it intends to proceed.
Discovery disputes may be referred to a Magistrate Judge. If a discovery dispute is
referred to a Magistrate Judge, the Magistrate Judge to whom the dispute is referred will
advise the parties as to how that Judge intends to proceed.
After a Magistrate Judge has been assigned to a case for discovery, the parties in that case
must handle any discovery matters according to the procedures set by that Judge.
