COUNTY OF SAN JOAQUIN, A MUNICIPAL CORPORATION; ROBERT HEIDLEBACH, IN HIS CAPACITY AS SHERIFF FOR THE COUNTY OF SAN JOAQUIN; ROBERT FOPPIANO, INDIVIDUALLY AND IN HIS CAPACITY AS A DEPUTY SHERIFF FOR THE COUNTY OF SAN JOAQUIN; WILLIAM INSKIP, INDIVIDUALLY; MATTHEW D'VALENTINE, INDIVIDUALLY, AND DOES 1-50, INCLUSIVE, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
The undersigned judge reviewed two confidential settlement statements prior to today, February 17, 2010, and contacted the submitting counsel concerning whether the settlement conference scheduled for February 19, 2010 would be productive. Two additional confidential settlement statements were received today; one of the submitting counsel was contacted, and the other was unavailable because counsel is handling a matter elsewhere.
After reviewing the submitted statements and speaking with counsel, it is evident that holding a settlement conference at this time would not be productive. Therefore, the settlement conference scheduled for February 19, 2010 is VACATED. If after further communication regarding the feasibility of reaching a settlement, a party opines that a settlement conference would be productive, the conference may be rescheduled.
