The Settlement Statement shall (1) recite the key facts and law, (2) discuss
the strengths and weaknesses of each party’s case, (3) discuss the parties’ position
on settlement, (4) detail litigation expenses to date and going forward through trial;
and (5) describe the settlement efforts to date. To aid in the settlement process, the

directed to be candid in their statements and to provide the Court with sufficient
detail to analyze the critical factual and legal issues in the case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
