In Plaintiff’s portion of the joint 20 letter, Plaintiff indicates that the parties have not met and conferred on all of the discovery disputes, 21 as required by this court’s standing order. For example, shortly before the parties filed the joint 22 letter, Plaintiff provided supplemental responses to some of the interrogatories at issue. Plaintiff 23 avers that after it provided supplemental responses to Interrogatory Nos. 20 and 28, Defendant 24 changed its position in the joint discovery letter and described disputes relating to topics about 25 which the parties had not met and conferred. 26 Accordingly, the court denies the letter without prejudice and orders the parties to meet 27 and confer regarding the issues described in the joint letter. If the parties are unable to resolve their 28 disputes without judicial intervention, they shall file a joint discovery letter of no more than 10 1 pages by 3 p.m. on June 24, 2014.
