Anderson v. Duran et al
ORDER DENYING REQUEST TO TAKE JUDICIAL NOTICE. Signed by Judge Richard Seeborg on 9/16/14. (cl, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 9/16/2014)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
JOHN P. ANDERSON,
Case No. 13-cv-04825-RS
ORDER DENYING REQUEST TO
TAKE JUDICIAL NOTICE
JACK DURAN, et al.,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Defendants Reggie Lewis, Chance Alberta, Carl Bushman, Irene Waltz, Lynn Chenot,
David Castillo, and Melvin Espe, individually and on behalf of the Tribal entities the Picayune
Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians, Chukchansi Economic Development Authority, and the
Chukchansi Indians Housing Authority, have submitted a Request for Judicial Notice of certain
facts and public documents, particularly the 2014 Mediation Agreement. The request is denied.
Rule 408 of the Federal Rules of Evidence provides that evidence of conduct or statements made
during settlement negotiations is not admissible either to prove or disprove the validity of a
disputed claim, subject to certain exceptions. Defendants have not set forth any permissible use of
this evidence. Their request is therefore denied as the proffered material is inadmissible under the
Federal Rules of Evidence.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: September 16, 2014
