By Electronic Filing.
The settlement conference scheduled for Wednesday, January 25, 2023 is
hereby adjourned sine die. The parties are directed to submit a joint letter
updating the Court on the status of settlement discussions by no later than
Monday, February 20, 2023. The Clerk of Court is directed to terminate
the motion at ECF No. 31. SO ORDERED.
Rodriguez et al v. City of New York, et. al., 21-CV-10815 (PKC)
Dear Judge Figueredo:
I am co-counsel for Plaintiffs in the above-captioned matter. I write jointly with Defendants
to ask that the Court adjourn the settlement conference currently scheduled for January 25, 2023 (Dkt.
No. 27). Prior counsel for Defendants left the Law Department in December, and new counsel
entered an appearance in this matter on January 4, 2023. The parties respectfully request a brief
adjournment of the settlement conference for new defense counsel to get up to speed on the case,
and for the parties to engage in settlement discussions prior to the conference, such that the
conference is as productive as possible. Plaintiffs’ counsel and defense counsel have litigated several
cases before and believe it would be in the interests of judicial economy for them to have time to
speak directly before engaging in a settlement conference; further, both counsel are highly familiar
with the facts at issue (which span across several lawsuits) and would like to engage in conversations
about the impact of those matters before engaging in the settlement conference.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
