ORDER SETTING TELEPHONIC SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE 13 RYAN GILL, ET AL., 14 15 16 Defendant(s). _____________________________________/ The court previously conducted a settlement conference, and the case settled fully. Plaintiffs' 17 attorney Wayne Johnson filed a letter on May 30, 2012, advising the district court that there has 18 been a delay in securing Ms. Brown's and Ms. Cross's signatures on the release forms. The letter 19 notes the participation in the final settlement process of a relative/attorney of Ms. Brown named B.J. 20 Smith, but the letter suggests that the releases generally have been approved by both Mr. Johnson 21 and B.J. Smith. See ECF No. 64. Because of the delay, Plaintiffs' counsel advised the district court 22 of the delay. This court now sets a further telephonic settlement conference to facilitate any issues 23 that need to be resolved. 24 Only Plaintiffs' counsel Mr Johnson and defense counsel Ms. Hynes need to be present on the 25 call, at least initially. But because all parties and persons with decision making authority or input 26 need to be present at settlement conferences, see Settlement Order at ECF No. 36, this court asks 27 Mr. Johnson to make Plaintiffs Ms. Brown and Ms. Cross and Ms. Brown's relative/attorney adviser 28 B.J. Smith available by telephone should the court need their participation. If Mr. Johnson has their ORDER (C11-4759 CW (LB)) 1 telephone numbers ready at the telephone conference call, the court can conference them in if 2 necessary 3 The telephone call itself is set for Thursday, June 14, 2012 at 11:30 a.m. If that time is 4 inconvenient for counsel, they may contact courtroom deputy Lashanda Scott at 415-522-3140 to 5 arrange a different time. If the parties resolve this issue before the call, they may advise Ms. Scott 6 and vacate the conference call. They should simultaneously advise the court when the releases will 7 be finalized so that the dismissal may be filed. 8 IT IS SO ORDERED. 9 10 Dated: May 31, 2012 _______________________________ LAUREL BEELER United States Magistrate Judge 12 For the Northern District of California UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 11 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 ORDER (C11-4759 CW (LB)) 2
