AMY CALDERWOOD, et al.,
This is an action on a civil rights complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, removed from
state court. The complaint was previously screened by the Court. (ECF No. 6). The screening
order imposed a 90-day stay and the Court entered a subsequent order scheduling a mediation
conference. (ECF Nos. 6 & 9). The minutes from the mediation conference indicate that settlement
was not reached. (ECF No. 11). The Office of the Attorney General filed an amended status report
informing the Court of its intent to proceed with this action. (ECF No. 13).
