Counse l and pro se litigants shall have parties present who shall have full authority to negotiate all terms and demands presented by the case, and full authority to enter into a settlement agreem ent, including an adjustor if an insurance company is involved. "Full authority" means that the person who attends the settlement conference has the complete and unfettered capacity and authority to meet or pay all terms or amounts which are demanded or sought by the other side of the case without consulting with some other person, committee or agency. If any person has limits upon the extent or amount within which he or she is authorized to settle on behalf of a party, that person does not have "full authority." No party shall be permitted to attend the settlement conference by ph on e unless that party has obtained leave of Court following the filing of an appropriate motio n, no later than five (5) business days prior to the settlement conference date. In order that productive settlement discussions can be held, the parties shall prepare and subm it two settlement documents: one to be mailed to the other party or parties, and the other to be m ailed only to the Magistrate Judge. The documents which are presented to opposing parties shall contain an overview of the case from the presenter's point of view, shall summarize the evidence which supports that side's claims, and shall present a demand or offer. These documents should be intended to persuade the clients and counsel or pro se litigant on the other side. The document to be mailed to the Magistrate Judge shall contain copies of the above m aterials, but additionally shall contain any confidential comments which counsel or the pro se litigant wishes to make, any comments with regard to perceived weaknesses in the case and any comments which would be helpful to the magistrate in assisting the parties to negotiate a settlement. ECF participants shall e-mail their Confidential Settlement Statements to chambers with a subject line "Confidential Settlement Statement" to: Tafoya_Chambers@cod.uscourts.gov, no later than five (5) business days prior to the settlement conference date.
