ARNOLD LONG, : : Appellee. : C. A. No. 16-633-GMS Bankruptcy Case No. 16-10626-CSS BAP No. 16-38 RECOMMENDATION At Wilmington this 19th day of October, 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. A teleconference was held on September 29, 2016 during which the parties were directed to establish ground rules to permit meaningful mediation. Despite their efforts, the parties have been unable to do so. 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Mediation of Appeals from the United States Bankruptcy Court for this District and 28 U.S.C. ยง 636(b), this matter be withdrawn from the mandatory referral for mediation and proceed through the appellate process of this Court. Since the parties requested this matter be removed from mandatory mediation, no objections to this Recommendation is expected to occur. Local counsel are obligated to inform out-of-state counsel of this Order. /s/ Mary Pat Thynge Chief U.S. Magistrate Judge Mary Pat Thynge 2
