Soon after the letter was filed, the parties contacted the Court regarding a separate issue that had arisen in the midst of Plaintiff's deposition. While resolving the deposition issue, the Court determined that, because litigation of the instant case was not proceeding smoothly, the parties and counsel would benefit from an attempt at resolution. Accordingly, the Court scheduled a settlement conference for 2:30 on the afternoon of April 7, to be attended by the parties and counsel. Prior to the settlement conference, the Court received, via facsimile, Defendants' response to Plaintiff's letter. While the Court was unable to settle the case, the Court worked through the discovery disputes presented by Plaintiff in its April 7 letter. The following are the Court's rulings: Defendants shall provide electronic postings of all available positions at Summa Health Systems for 2007 and 2008, if they can be retrieved. Defendants shall provide a list of all Cath Lab personnel terminated or laid-off from 2006 - 2008, subject to a protective order.
