RALPH COLEMAN, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
JERRY BROWN, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
By order filed March 31, 2010, defendants were directed to work under the guidance of the special master and file within one hundred twenty days a plan to "reduce or eliminate the wait lists for inpatient care and, in the interim, to better serve the needs of Coleman class members placed on such lists." Order filed March 31, 2010, at 3. Pursuant to stipulation and order, defendants' time to file the plan was extended to November 26, 2010. See Stipulation and Order filed August 3, 2010. On November 24, 2010, defendants filed their plan.
On February 7, 2011, the court approved a stipulation of the parties setting a briefing schedule for the filing of objections to defendants' plan and responses to objections. On February 25, 2011, plaintiffs filed objections to part of the plan. On March 18, 2011, defendants filed a response to plaintiffs' objections.
After review of defendants' plan, plaintiffs' objections, and defendants' response to said objections, and good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this matter is referred to the special master for review and recommendations. Within forty-five days, the special master shall report to the court on the adequacy of defendants' plan and whether, in light of plaintiffs' objections, any modification(s) thereto should be required.
