UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SAN JOSE DIVISION
August 22, 2011
AIR CHINA LIMITED AND UNITED AIRLINES INCORPORATED,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lucy H. Koh United States District Judge
ORDER SUGGESTING SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE
The Court understands that this matter raises important legal issues for each side. However, as the October 17, 2011 bench trial date approaches, the Court respectfully requests that the parties participate in a Settlement Conference with Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero. The original 14 complaint in this case requested $4,233 in damages and was filed in Small Claims Court. After the 15 removal of this case from Small Claims Court to the U.S. District Court, this Court issued two 16 substantive orders and held two case management conferences. The parties have been extremely 17 close to a resolution of this matter in the past. The Court urges the parties to take reasonable 18 positions and attempt to resolve this case one more time before proceeding to trial. Accordingly, 19 by Friday, August 26, 2011, the parties are ordered to inform the Court as to whether they will 20 agree to a Settlement Conference with Judge Spero to be held before the October 17, 2011 trial 21 date. If the parties agree, they shall contact Judge Spero's Chambers on August 26, 2011, to 22 schedule a Settlement Conference as soon as possible.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
