UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 1, 2013
SEAN BORING, PLAINTIFF,
BED BATH & BEYOND OF CALIFORNIA LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: United States District Judge Jon S. Tigar
ORDER RE STIPULATION SELECTING MEDIATION Re: Dkt. No. 16
The Court has before it the parties' Stipulation and Proposed Order Selecting Mediation.
Dkt. No. 16. The parties are to be commended for proactively addressing the subject of alternative dispute resolution. The Court notes, however, that the parties have not yet selected a mediator. In the Court's experience, the timely selection of a neutral is the surest guarantee of compliance with a mediation deadline, and it is the Court's practice to set deadlines for both in tandem.
With that in mind, the Court orders the parties to submit a revised
stipulation and proposed
order by March 15, 2013, identifying both a mutually agreeable
neutral and a mediation deadline of June 15, 2013 or earlier.
The Court is currently reviewing the parties' case management
statement and looks
forward to scheduling a case management conference with the
parties. Dkt. No. 15.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
