METROPOLITAN LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY, PLAINTIFF,
NATISHA ROBINSON-LEE, T.L., A MINOR, AND R.L., A MINOR,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Edward M. Chen Judge United States District
UPDATED CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE STATEMENT ORDER RESETTING
FURTHER CMC DATE: November 2, 2012 TIME: 10:30 a.m. CRTM: 5, 17th Floor
Metropolitan Life Insurance Company ("MetLife") provides the following
21 management conference statement, with regard to the currently
scheduled further case 22 management conference. As the parties
informed the Court they would do (at the case 23 management conference
held on July 31, 2012 and in their supplemental case management 24
conference statement filed on August 29, 2012 (ECF No. 15)), the
parties have been engaged 25 in discussions regarding possible ways to
resolve the issues so that the life insurance benefits 26 can be paid
An agreement has been reached between MetLife and Ms. Robinson-Lee, but the 28 parties require additional time in which to finalize matters. Communications with Ms. Robinson-Lee have been slow and difficult, due to lack of electronic communication 2 capability. MetLife also has been in contact, however, with an attorney who reportedly is 3 preparing guardianship papers so that Ms. Robinson-Lee's children (the two minor defendants 4 in the litigation) can receive the life insurance benefits. 5
MetLife believes that the matter will be concluded, from standpoint of the litigation,
6 within the next 30 days. MetLife therefore requests that the Court continue the pending case 7 management conference for an additional 30 days, to permit the ancillary procedures, such as 8 establishment of a guardianship for the minor defendants, to be completed, thereby allowing 9 the litigation to be dismissed. 10 11
