IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 12, 2009
JAMES TALADA, III, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
CITY OF MARTINEZ, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Edward M. Chen United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER EXCUSING PERSONAL ATTENDANCE AT SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE (Docket No. 128)
By letter dated February 11, 2009, and inadvertently addressed to Magistrate Judge Wayne D. Brazil instead of this Court, Defendants DAVE CUTAIA and MARK SMITH requested to be excused from personally appearing at the settlement conference scheduled for February 17, 2009. No opposition was filed by any party. Upon consideration of the request, the Court finds good cause for excusing personal attendance.
Therefore, it is hereby ORDERED that Defendants DAVE CUTAIA and MARK SMITH be available on telephone standby from 9:30 a.m. Pacific Time until further notice on February 17, 2009.
If the Court concludes that the absence of Defendants DAVE CUTAIA and MARK SMITH is impeding the settlement conference, the Court may continue the settlement conference and may order personal attendance by each party including Defendants DAVE CUTAIA and MARK SMITH.
This order disposes of Docket No. 128.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
