IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA

For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
No. C 16-03081 WHA
ORDER DENYING STIPULATED
REQUEST FOR SETTLEMENT
CEIBA LEGAL, LLP, et al.,
On October 13, the parties filed a stipulated request for an order mandating a
“Settlement Conference for members of the groups acting as the Garcia Faction and Brown
Faction Executive Committees” before Judge Vadas. The parties also requested that the order
require “a list of core issues” to be submitted to the Court. The conference and list of issues are
measures to facilitate settlement that the parties, in consultation with Judge Vadas, had
previously agreed upon (Dkt. No. 58 at 2).
Although the Court is sympathetic to the idea of getting both factions together in a
settlement conference, the Court can only order actual parties properly before it to join in these
proceedings. Accordingly, the parties’ stipulated request is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: October 18, 2016.
