REMINDER NOTICE OF UPCOMING TRIAL AND FINAL PRETRIAL CONFERENCE / 16 17 18 This notice serves as a friendly reminder that this case remains set for a FINAL PRETRIAL CONFERENCE on JANUARY 6, 2014, at 2:00 P.M., with a JURY TRIAL on 19 JANUARY 13, 2014. Please consult the existing case management order and review and follow 20 all standing guidelines and orders of the undersigned for civil cases on the Court’s website at 21 Continuances will rarely be granted. 22 The final pretrial conference will be an important event, for it will be there that the 23 shape of the upcoming trial will be determined, including in limine orders, time limits and 24 exhibit mechanics. Lead trial counsel must attend. 25 To avoid any misunderstanding with respect to the final pretrial conference and trial, 26 the Court wishes to emphasize that all filings and appearances must be made — on pain of 27 dismissal, default or other sanction — unless and until a dismissal fully resolving the case is 28 received. It will not be enough to inform the clerk that a settlement in principle has been 1 reached or to lodge a partially executed settlement agreement or to lodge a fully executed 2 agreement (or dismissal) that resolves less than the entire case. Where, however, a 3 fully-executed and unconditional settlement agreement clearly and fully disposing of the entire 4 case is lodged reasonably in advance of the pretrial conference or trial and only a ministerial 5 act remains, the Court will arrange a status conference to work out an alternate procedure 6 pending a formal dismissal. 7 8 9 Please state whether the Court can be of further ADR assistance (but avoid stating offers, counteroffers or dollar amounts). In this case, the Court wishes to consider the following additional trial procedures and desires that counsel meet and confer and reach a stipulation concerning whether and how to 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 use them: 12 1. Scheduling opposing experts so as to appear in successive order; 13 2. Giving preliminary instructions on the law; 14 3. Allowing limited pre-closing deliberations (as per, e.g., Rule 39 15 of the Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure); and 16 4. Allowing each side fifteen minutes of opening/argument time to 17 be used during the evidence time (in addition to normal opening statement and 18 closing argument). 19 Please present the results of your stipulation (or not) in the joint pretrial conference 20 submissions. 21 22 23 24 25 Dated: October 21, 2013.
