All conference discussions will be informal, off the record, privileged, and confidential.
In the event the case does not settle at the Early Neutral Evaluation Conference, the parties shall also be prepared to discuss the following matters at the conclusion of the conference:
a. Any anticipated objections under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(a)(1)(E) to the initial disclosure provisions of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(a)(1)(A-D);

c. The date of initial disclosure and the date for lodging the discovery plan following the Rule 26(f) conference; and,
