C. Lance Gould represented plaintiffs; Melissa M. Hensley represented defendants. There will be some discovery on the cases in this district and likely one or more summary judgment motions. Trials, if necessary, will be before other judges. The Atterberry case will be treated as the lead case instead of the Bartlett case referred to earlier. Consolidation will be proposed, with the Atterberry case being used for naming purposes. The court was advised that appearance is forthcoming of local counsel for plaintiffs. A Rule 16 Notice will be issued in the Atterberry case, for informational purposes, but will be superseded by any agreed proposed procedural orders submitted to the court. Plaintiffs suggest that the mediation procedures of this district may be useful, but a letter from Kent Snapp, deferring such procedures, will remain in effect. It is hereby ORDERED that on or before October 1, 2010, the parties file, jointly if possible, proposed scheduling and procedural orders deemed to be appropriate. /s/ Howard F. Sachs HOWARD F. SACHS UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE September 13 , 2010 Kansas City, Missouri
