ORDER FINDING EARLY NEUTRAL EVALUATION INAPPROPRIATE AND SCHEDULING TELEPHONIC CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE
Pursuant to Civil Local Rule 16.1(c), which provides that the "judicial officer shall hold [conferences] as he or she deems appropriate," the Court finds this case inappropriate for an Early Neutral Evaluation Conference due to Defendant Bausch & Lomb, Inc.'s intent to request that this action be transferred to the United States District Court, District of South Carolina as part of the pending Multi-District Litigation case entitled In re Bausch & Lomb Inc. Contact Lens Solution Products Liability Litigation, MDL-1785. See Doc. No. 8. Good cause appearing, a telephonic, attorneys-only Case Management Conference shall be held before Magistrate Judge Barbara L. Major on January 11, 2007 at 1:45 p.m. Counsel for each party shall appear telephonically at this conference. The Court will initiate the conference call. Failure of required counsel to participate may result in monetary sanctions.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
