Brown v. Harris

United States District Court, E.D. California

March 28, 2017

CORNELL BROWN, Plaintiff,
v.
R. HARRIS, Defendant.

          ORDER SETTING SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE

          Barbara A. McAuliffe UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE

         Plaintiff Cornell Brown is a state prisoner proceeding in forma pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The parties have agreed that this matter would benefit from a settlement conference with the assistance of a magistrate judge, and the Court agrees.

         Therefore, this case will be referred to Magistrate Judge Carolyn K. Delaney to conduct a settlement conference at the U.S. District Court, 501 I Street, Sacramento, California 95814 in Courtroom #24 on July 7, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. A separate order and writ of habeas corpus ad testificandum will issue in due course.

         In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:

1. This case is set for a settlement conference before Magistrate Judge Carolyn K. Delaney on July 7, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. in Courtroom #24 at the U.S. District Court, 501 I Street, Sacramento, California 95814.
2. Parties are instructed to have a principal with full settlement authority present at the Settlement Conference or to be fully authorized to settle the matter on any terms. The individual with full authority to settle must also have “unfettered discretion and authority” to change the settlement position of the party, if appropriate. The purpose behind requiring the attendance of a person with full settlement authority is that the parties' view of the case may be altered during the face to face conference. An authorization to settle for a limited dollar amount or sum certain can be found not to comply with the requirement of full authority to settle.[1]
3. Parties are directed to submit confidential settlement statements no later than June 30, 2017 to ckdorders@caed.uscourts.gov. If a party desires to share additional confidential information with the Court, they may do so pursuant to the provisions of Local Rule 270(d) and (e). Parties are also directed to file a “Notice of Submission of Confidential Settlement Statement” (See L.R. 270(d)).
4. Settlement statements should not be filed with the Clerk of the Court nor served on any other party. Settlement statements shall be clearly marked “confidential” with the date and time of the settlement conference indicated prominently thereon.
The confidential settlement statement shall be no longer than five pages in length, typed or neatly printed, and include the following:
a. A brief statement of the facts of the case.
b. A brief statement of the claims and defenses, i.e., statutory or other grounds upon which the claims are founded; a forthright evaluation of the parties' likelihood of prevailing on the claims and defenses; and a description of the major issues in dispute.
c. A summary of the proceedings to date.
d. An estimate of the cost and time to be expended for further discovery, ...
