Plaintiff is a California state prisoner proceeding pro se in a civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. This action is proceeding against Defendant Hernandez and shall be scheduled for trial commencing August 27, 2012.
The parties to this action shall each, no later than fifteen (15) days from the date of the order, submit confidential statements as described below. The confidential statements shall not be served on the opposing party or filed with the court, but instead, delivered by mail, fax, email or personal delivery to the court's Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) division at the address, fax number or email address below and marked "Confidential." Such statements shall be limited to five (5) pages and shall include the following:
1) the party's assessment of whether the instant action is of the type that would benefit from a settlement proceeding;
2) the party's assessment of what factors, if any, will prevent settlement of this matter prior to trial; and
3) any additional information the court may find useful in determining whether to set this matter for a settlement conference.
Should the court determine this action to be appropriate to referral to the Prisoner Settlement Program, the court will set this matter for settlement conference before a magistrate judge or district judge.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
