Batiste v. Clark County School District et al
ORDER denying 22 Motion for Exemption from Conference. Signed by Magistrate Judge Nancy J. Koppe on 8/25/2017. (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - JM)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
CLARK COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT, et al.,
Case No. 2:17-cv-00227-APG-GWF
(Docket No. 22)
Pending before the Court is the motion that Defendant Jon Howard not appear in person for the
upcoming early neutral evaluation. Docket No. 22. Plaintiff filed a response in opposition, and
Defendants filed a reply. Docket No. 25, 26. Because Defendant has failed to persuade the Court that
Mr. Howard’s attendance will not be beneficial, the motion is DENIED.
To ensure that the parties participate in the early neutral evaluation in accordance with the
decorum and civility required by the Court, see, e.g., Local Rule 1-1(c), the Court feels compelled to
admonish Plaintiff’s counsel that personal attacks and over-the-top rhetoric are not helpful or
appropriate. Such conduct will not be tolerated at the early neutral evaluation.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: August 25, 2017
Nancy J. Koppe
