Docket No. 15. Because of the 15 deficiencies with the discovery plan, it is hereby DENIED. For example, the discovery plan fails to 16 state the date on which the first defendant answered or otherwise appeared, in violation of Local Rule 17 26-1(e)(1). Moreover, the discovery plan improperly calculates the discovery period from the Rule 26(f) 18 conference rather than from that appearance date, in violation of Local Rule 26-1(e)(1). The parties shall 19 file a discovery plan that complies with the applicable rules no later than December 8, 2015. 20 The discovery plan also includes a request by Plaintiff to schedule a settlement conference, which 21 is opposed by Defendants. See Docket No. 15 at 1. The Court does not generally grant requests for 22 settlement conferences that are opposed. See, e.g., McCarty v. Roos, 2013 WL 5436578, *2 (D. Nev. 23 Sept. 27, 2013) Plaintiff’s request is DENIED. The parties may renew this request in the future as 24 appropriate. 25 IT IS SO ORDERED. 26 DATED: December 4, 2015 27 28 ______________________________________ NANCY J. KOPPE United States Magistrate Judge
