MARIA TRYSLA and

THE MARKETING DEPARTMENT WORLDWIDE, LLC and
This matter comes before the Court on the Stipulated Motion for Status
Conference [Docket No. 105], wherein the parties ask that the Court schedule a
settlement conference in this case. The motion states that “the Parties believe a
settlement conference will allow the Parties, who are of limited resources, to resolve
this matter.” Id. at 1. The motion is brought under Fed. R. Civ. P. 16. However, the
relevant rule is Local Rule 16.6(a), whereby a “district judge . . . may direct the parties
to engage in . . . other alternative dispute resolution proceeding.” D.C.COLO.LCivR
The Court will grant the motion to have a magistrate judge preside over a
settlement conference, but only if Mr. John Cooley attends in person. Holding a
settlement conference will require a considerable time investment by Magistrate Judge
Tafoya. In order to justify that investment, the Court believes that Mr. Cooley should be

If the parties agree to a settlement conference with Mr. Cooley being present,
they should contact Magistrate Judge Kathleen Tafoya’s chambers to schedule it.
Wherefore, it is
ORDERED that the Stipulated Motion for Status Conference [Docket No. 105] is
granted to the extent that the Court will schedule a settlement conference pursuant to
Local Rule 16.6(a) in front of Magistrate Judge Kathleen M. Tafoya on condition that
Mr. John Cooley personally attend such settlement conference.
