FURTHER, IT IS ORDERED that counsel 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 agreement, 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.

These documents should be intended to persuade the clients and counsel on the other side. 2 • The document to be submitted to the Magistrate Judge shall contain copies of the above materials, but additionally shall contain any confidential comments which counsel wishes to make, any comments with regard to perceived weaknesses in the case, and any comments which would be helpful to the Magistrate Judge in assisting the parties to negotiate a settlement.
