No. 698). Among other things, that Order set 18 deadlines for the three proposed “phases” for the filing of dispositive motions; directed 19 the parties to schedule mediation within 60 days of the date of the Order; and modified 20 and scheduled the remaining discovery, pretrial, and trial dates. 21 King County filed two motions for summary judgment by the deadline of the 22 first phase for dispositive motions. However, no dispositive motions were filed before 23 the second phase deadline, March 1, 2019. Furthermore, the Court has also entered 24 several orders granting parties’ motions to approve settlements, but the parties have not 25 advised the Court of the status of the mediation that presumably took place last fall.

A brief outline of the issues that the parties believe remain in this case; 10 5. Whether, given resolution of some of the claims since this case was first 11 filed, the parties still believe that a jury trial, scheduled to begin November 12 25, 2019, will take 20 days. 13 The parties are free to include in the Joint Status Report any additional 14 information or requests they believe would be useful for pretrial and trial purposes. 15 This Joint Status Report shall be filed no later than May 10, 2019. 16 Dated this 2nd day of May, 2019. 17 18 A 19 Barbara Jacobs Rothstein U.S. District Court Judge 20 21 22 23 24 25 ORDER RE: UPDATED JOINT STATUS REPORT Case No. 2:14-cv-01957 – Page 2
