IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 25, 2009
TIMOTHY WATTS, PLAINTIFF,
R. MOORE, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
In response to the Order, filed on June 12, 2009, defendants indicate they do not oppose plaintiff's request for a resumption of efforts to mediate/settle this matter. Defendants request that a further mediation take place on Tuesday, August 18, 2009, at 3:00 p.m. at California State Prison-Solano (CSP-Sol), and ask that the court issue a writ for plaintiff's presence at the mediation. Court staff has determined that a place has been reserved on Judge Vadas' calendar for the mediation of this matter at the time and place identified by defendants' counsel.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that: 1. Plaintiff's June 1, 2009 (docket # 25), motion to engage in a further settlement conference, previously denied without prejudice pending defendants' response, is now GRANTED;
2. This matter is hereby set for a mediation/settlement conference on Tuesday, August 18, 2009, at 3:00 p.m., at California State Prison-Solano (CSP-Sol);
3. Pursuant to defendants' June 16, 2009 (docket # 27) request, a writ of habeas corpus ad testificandum for plaintiff's attendance at the conference will issue separately; and,
4. While the deadlines may be rendered moot following the further mediation/settlement conference, at this time the discovery and pretrial dispositive motion cut-off dates set forth in the scheduling order, filed on March 31, 2009 (docket # 22), remain in effect.
