UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SAN FRANCISCO DIVISION
December 14, 2007
ANTONIO TORRES-FELIX, ROSALINDA TORRES, AND EDGAR ANTONIO TORRES, PLAINTIFFS,
ROSEMARY MELVILLE, DISTRICT DIRECTOR, UNITED STATES CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES; DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Susan Illston United States District Judge
PARTIES' JOINT REQUEST TO BE EXEMPT FROM FORMAL ADR PROCESS and [PROPOSED] ORDER
Each of the undersigned certifies that he or she has read either the handbook entitled "Dispute Resolution Procedures in the Northern District of California," or the specified portions of the ADR Unit's Internet site , discussed the available dispute resolution options provided by the court and private entities, and considered whether this case might benefit from any of them.
Here, the parties agree that referral to a formal ADR process will not be beneficial because this 26 mandamus action is limited to Plaintiffs' request that this Court compel the defendant to 27 adjudicate their applications for adjustment of status. Given the substance of the action and the 28 lack of any potential middle ground, ADR will only serve to multiply the proceedings and Parties' Request to be Exempt from ADR C07-4827 SI unnecessarily tax court resources.
Accordingly, pursuant to ADR L.R. 3-3(c), the parties request the case be removed from the ADR Multi-Option Program and that they be excused from participating in the ADR phone conference and any further formal ADR process.
Dated: December 14, 2007
Pursuant to stipulation and to ADR L. R. 3-3(c), the parties are hereby removed from the ADR Multi-Option Program and are excused from participating in the ADR phone conference and any further formal ADR process.
