Arctic Glacier Income Fund et al
: Bankruptcy Case No. 12-10605
: ADV No. 15-51732
: AP No. 16-35
At Wilmington this 15th day of August, 2016.
WHEREAS, pursuant to paragraph 2(a) of the Procedures to Govern
Mediation of Appeals from the United States Bankruptcy Court for this District dated
September 11, 2012, the court conducted an initial review, which included information
from counsel, to determine the appropriateness of mediation in this matter;
WHEREAS, as a result of the above screening process, the issues
involved in this case are not amenable to mediation and mediation at this stage would
not be a productive exercise, a worthwhile use of judicial resources nor warrant the
expense of the process. The parties previously participated in an unsuccessful
mediation related to the matters at issue in the subject adversary proceeding. They do
not believe that the present proceeding is likely to resolve through mediation, nor that
the process would be productive, efficient or an effective use of the resources of the
Court or the parties.
THEREFORE, IT IS RECOMMENDED that, pursuant to paragraph 2(a)
Procedures to Govern Mediation of Appeals from the United States Bankruptcy Court
for this District and 28 U.S.C. § 636(b), this matter be withdrawn from the mandatory
referral for mediation and proceed through the appellate process of this Court. The
parties were advised of their right to file objections to this Recommendation pursuant to
28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B), FED. R. CIV. P. 72(a) and D. DEL. LR 72.1. No objections are
anticipated in light of the parties’ position on mediation.
In addition, the parties request the following briefing schedule be entered for this
appeal along with certain additional language:
