Calvet v. Accent Electronic Systems Integrators, Inc. et al
ORDER DENYING REQUEST TO RESCHEDULE MEDIATION. Signed by Judge Robert N. Scola, Jr. on 6/4/2012. (jky)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
CASE NO. 11-61378-Civ-SCOLA
TRINITY TECHNOLOGY et al.,
ORDER DENYING REQUEST TO RESCHEDULE MEDIATION
THIS MATTER is before the Court on an independent review of the record. Pursuant to
the April 9, 2012 Order Granting the Joint Motion for Extension of Time, the parties had up to
and including May 9, 2012 to complete mediation. To date, the parties have failed to do so.
Because of this, the Court entered a Show Cause Order in regards to the failure to timely hold
mediation. On May 30, 2012, one day after the deadline to respond to the Show Cause Order,
the Plaintiff submitted a Proposed Order Scheduling Mediation for June 6, 2012. Despite the
fact that the mediation would be held a month late without explanation, the Court generously
entered an Order Scheduling Mediation for that date. The Order expressly stated: “This date has
been agreed to by the parties and mediator and shall not be rescheduled or cancelled without
leave of Court.” Yet, without any explanation, on June 4, 2012, the Plaintiff filed another
Proposed Order Scheduling Mediation, which indicated that the mediation would now be held on
June 26, 2012. The filing does not state any grounds for the need to move the mediation date,
nor does it provide good cause for the Court to permit the parties to mediate nearly two months
beyond the deadline.
Given this lack of information, the present record provides no grounds for the Court to
allow the parties to move the mediation. If there are good grounds, then the parties must inform
the Court by way of well-supported motion to reschedule the mediation. Absent such, the parties
shall mediate on June 6, 2012, as previously ordered.
DONE and ORDERED in chambers at Miami, Florida on June 4, 2012.
