IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA JUMAH ALI-THOMAS MOORE, Plaintiff, No. C 06-2105 SBA (PR) ORDER REFERRING CASE TO FEDERAL PRO BONO PROJECT AND SETTING CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE
Plaintiff Jumah Ali-Thomas Moore is a state prisoner who filed this pro se civil action. In an Order dated August 27, 2009, the Court granted in part and denied in part Defendants' motion for summary judgment. The Court found that, when viewed in the light most favorable to Plaintiff, there are genuine issues for trial with respect to Plaintiff's excessive force claim against Defendants Zamora, Pulido, Thomas, Baez, and Tsai. The Court also granted Plaintiff's motion for reconsideration of its dismissal under Rule 4(m) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure of Plaintiff's claims against Defendants Matthews, Arroyo, and Vogel-Pace. The Court directed Defendants' attorney, Deputy Attorney General Trace O. Maiorino, to make an appearance on behalf of Defendants Matthews, Arroyo, and Vogel-Pace in order for them to participate in settlement proceedings in this action. On August 28, 2009, Mr. Maiorino filed a waiver of reply on behalf of Defendants Matthews, Arroyo, and Vogel-Pace, as well as a demand for a jury trial on behalf of all Defendants. The Court referred the parties to Magistrate Judge Nandor Vadas for Court-mandated settlement proceedings, which were held on September 22, 2009. The case did not settle. Therefore, the case will proceed to trial. The Court has determined that it would be beneficial to have counsel assist Plaintiff in further proceedings in this matter. Accordingly, good and just cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this case shall be referred to the Court's Federal Pro Bono Project in the manner set forth below: 1. The Clerk of the Court shall send: (1) a copy of this Order; (2) copies of court
documents that are not available electronically in the above-entitled action; (3) a docket sheet; and

(4) a memorandum outlining the facts and procedural posture of the action to the Federal Pro Bono Project volunteer at the address provided to the Clerk by the Court. 2. Upon an attorney being located to represent Plaintiff, that attorney shall be appointed
as counsel for Plaintiff in this matter until further order of the Court. 3. All further proceedings will be stayed until two (2) weeks from the date an attorney
is appointed to represent Plaintiff in this action. 4. A case management conference is set for Thursday, November 12, 2009 at 3:45
p.m. and will proceed telephonically. Plaintiff's attorney, if appointed before the aforementioned date, shall be responsible for arranging the conference call. If an attorney has not yet been located for Plaintiff at that time, then Defendants' attorney, Mr. Maiorino, shall be responsible for arranging the conference call. All parties shall be on the line and shall call (510) 637-3559 at the above indicated date and time. The parties must submit a joint Case Management Conference Statement no later than ten (10) days prior to the Case Management Conference that complies with the Standing Order for All Judges of the Northern District of California and the Standing Order of this Court. The parties must also indicate what discovery remains to be done, the amount of time needed for discovery, whether any further motions will be filed, and when they will be ready for trial. The Case Management Conference Statement need not be jointly prepared and may be submitted separately if an attorney has not been located for Plaintiff when the statement is due. IT IS SO ORDERED.
