United States District Court
Northern District of California
Case No. 21-cv-02026-SVK
ORDER ON ADMINISTRATIVE
MOTION TO RELIEVE DEFENDANTS
FROM REQUIREMENTS OF
GENERAL ORDER 56
Re: Dkt. No. 19
Before the Court is Defendants’ administrative motion requesting relief from the
requirements of General Order 56 (“GO 56”). Dkt. 19. According to Defendants, they have
removed or otherwise remedied each of the barriers to access alleged in Plaintiff’s Complaint.
They therefore ask to be “relieved any further obligation under General Order No. 56 and be
allowed to proceed with a motion to dismiss and/or motion for summary judgment” on Plaintiff’s
The Court DENIES Defendants’ request to be relieved of the requirements of GO 56. If
the parties agree that the claims for injunctive relief have been resolved, they may stipulate to
forego the joint site inspection and move directly to settlement discussions. If Plaintiff does not
agree that the claims for injunctive relief have been resolved, Defendants can file a motion for
summary judgment and then ask for relief from particular GO 56 requirements. However, in the
current posture of this case, the GO 56 requirements remain in place.
