United States District Court, E.D. California
March 28, 2017
CORNELL BROWN, Plaintiff,
R. HARRIS, Defendant.
ORDER SETTING SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE
Barbara A. McAuliffe UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
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.
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
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.

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

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.
3. Parties are directed to submit confidential settlement
statements no later than June 30, 2017 to
firstname.lastname@example.org. If a party desires to
share additional confidential information with the Court,

“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”

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
