UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 8, 2013
BARRY LOUIS LAMON,
DERRAL ADAMS, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sandra M. Snyder United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER REQUIRING PARTIES TO NOTIFY COURT WHETHER INCLUSION IN SETTLEMENT WEEK WOULD BE BENEFICIAL THIRTY (30) DAY DEADLINE
Barry Louis Lamon, ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. §1983.
During the entire week of June 10, 2013, the Eastern District of California, Fresno and Sacramento Divisions, is hosting Settlement Week, during which judges and volunteer mediators will conduct settlement conferences and mediation sessions at no charge to the parties. The parties are ordered to determine whether they believe participation in a settlement conference would be beneficial and feasible in this case.
The location(s) of that the settlement conferences will be conducted may not be a Level IV prison. Therefore, Defendants' counsel shall notify the Court whether there are security concerns that would prohibit scheduling a settlement conference. If security concerns exist, counsel shall notify the Court whether those concerns can be adequately addressed if Plaintiff is transferred for settlement only and then returned to a higher level prison for housing.
Accordingly, within thirty (30) days from the date of service of this order, Plaintiff and Defendants shall file a written response to this order. *fn1
