DIEGO SHERIFFS DEPUTIES
WILLIS (#9925); and MYERS
The Settlement Conference scheduled on February 14, 2017, at 10:00 a.m.
is vacated and reset for March 1, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. Counsel shall submit
settlement statements to Magistrate Judge Adler's chambers no later than
February 22, 2017.1 The parties may either submit confidential settlement
statements or may exchange their settlement statements.
Statements under 20 pages in length, including attachments and exhibits, may be e-mailed
to firstname.lastname@example.org, faxed to (619) 702-9939, or delivered to chambers via the
Office of the Clerk of Court at 333 West Broadway, Suite 420, San Diego, California.
Statements exceeding 20 pages in length, including attachments and exhibits, must be
delivered to chambers via the Office of the Clerk of Court.
All named parties, all lead trial counsel, and any other person(s)
whose authority is required to negotiate and enter into settlement shall
appear in person at the conference. The individual(s) present at the
Settlement Conference with settlement authority must have the unfettered
discretion and authority on behalf of the party to: 1) fully explore all
settlement options and to agree during the conference to any settlement
terms acceptable to the party (G. Heileman Brewing Co., Inc. v. Joseph Oat
Corp., 871 F.2d 648, 653 (7th Cir. 1989)), 2) change the settlement position
of a party during the course of the conference (Pitman v. Brinker Int'l, Inc.,
216 F.R.D. 481, 485-86 (D. Ariz. 2003)), and 3) negotiate a settlement without
being restricted by any predetermined level of authority (Nick v. Morgan's
Foods, Inc., 270 F.3d 590, 596 (8th Cir. 2001)). Governmental entities may
appear through litigation counsel only. As to all other parties, appearance by
litigation counsel only is not acceptable. Retained outside corporate counsel
shall not appear on behalf of a corporation as the party who has the authority to
negotiate and enter into a settlement.
The failure of any counsel, party or authorized person to appear at the
Settlement Conference as required shall be cause for the immediate
imposition of sanctions. All conference discussions will be informal, off the
record, privileged, and confidential.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
