Saavedra v. Harrington

United States District Court, E.D. California

November 20, 2017

MICHAEL A. SAAVEDRA, Plaintiff,
v.
KELLY HARRINGTON, et al., Defendants.

          ORDER SETTING SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE

          ALLISON CLAIRE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE

         Plaintiff Michael Saavedra is a former state prisoner proceeding without counsel in an action brought under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The court has determined that this case will benefit from a settlement conference. 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 January 8, 2018, at 9:30 a.m.

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

1. A settlement conference has been set for January 8, 2018, at 9:30 a.m. in Courtroom #24 before Magistrate Judge Carolyn K. Delaney 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. Each party shall provide a confidential settlement statement to the following email address: ckdorders@caed.uscourts.gov not later than December 29, 2017. Plaintiff may mail his confidential settlement statement Attn: Magistrate Judge Carolyn K. Delaney, USDC CAED, 501 I Street, Suite 4-200, Sacramento, California 95814 so it arrives no later than December 29, 2017. The envelope shall be marked “CONFIDENTIAL SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE STATEMENT.” Parties are also directed to file a “Notice of Submission of Confidential Settlement Statement” (See L.R. 270(d)).

         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, pretrial, and trial.
e. The relief sought.
f. The party's position on settlement, including present demands and offers and a history of past settlement ...
