R.T.C. GROUNDS, et al.,

ORDER RETURING CASE TO
DISTRICT JUDGE BECAUSE OF
PLAINTIFF'S REFUSAL TO
PARTICIPATE IN SETTLEMENT
On November 19, 2015, Chief Judge Hamilton referred this case to the undersigned for a
settlement conference. (Doc. 68.) On January 28, 2016, the undersigned entered an order setting
a settlement conference for March 10, 2016, at Solano State Prison. (Doc. 71.) The undersigned
issued a writ of habeas corpus ad testificandum requiring the Warden of Salinas Valley State
Prison to produce Plaintiff at Solano State Prison on March 10, 2016, for the settlement
conference. (Doc. 72.)
On March 3, 2016, the court was informed by the administration at Salinas Valley State
Prison that Plaintiff refused to board the bus to be transported to Solano State Prison for the
settlement conference. By refusing to be transported to Solano State Prison, Plaintiff has
prevented the scheduled settlement conference from occurring. The undersigned therefore
respectfully returns the case to Chief Judge Hamilton, based on Plaintiff's refusal to participate in
the ordered settlement conference.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: March 4, 2016
