In addition to the scheduling matters addressed in the parties' joint status report, the parties should come to the scheduling conference prepared to discuss: (1) whether Marysville Immediate Care is a federally supported health care center; and (2) whether this action can be dismissed with or without prejudice against the minor plaintiff, even though Ms. Widener does not have the authority to represent her minor son without retaining a lawyer.
