ROSAM, LLC et al., Defendants.

          AMENDED NOTICE AND ORDER FOR (1) EARLY NEUTRAL EVALUATION CONFERENCE AND (2) TELEPHONIC STATUS CONFERENCE [DOC. NO. 7.]

          Hon. William V. Gallo United States Magistrate Judge.

         For good cause shown, the joint motion to continue the Early Neutral Evaluation (“ENE”) and status conference is GRANTED. The Court's prior Order (Doc. No. 4) is VACATED, and the dates are reset as set forth below.

         IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that an ENE of your case will be held on January 6, 2020, at 9:00 a.m., before United States Magistrate Judge William V. Gallo, Edward J. Schwartz U.S. Courthouse, 221 West Broadway, Second Floor, San Diego, California. The attorneys and parties are to alert chambers of their arrival via the call button in the second-floor elevator lobby.

         Additionally, on January 3, 2020, beginning at 1:00 p.m., the Court will hold an attorneys-only telephonic status conference with each party separately.[1] The purpose of this confidential, off-the-record teleconference is for the Court's benefit in assessing each party's concerns, challenges, and whether the Court can assist in alleviating these. On or before December 30, 2019, each attorney intending to participate shall lodge, via electronic mail addressed to efileGallo@casd.uscourts.gov, (1) the name of each attorney who will participate and (2) a telephone number at which each attorney may be reached directly without fail at the time of the conference.

         The following are mandatory guidelines for the parties preparing for the ENE Conference.

         Unless there are extraordinary circumstances, persons required to attend the conference pursuant to this Order shall not be excused from personal attendance. Requests to be excused from attendance for extraordinary circumstances shall be made in writing at least seven calendar days prior to the conference. Where the suit involves the United States or one of its agencies, only counsel for the United States with full settlement authority need appear. All conference discussions will be informal, off the record, privileged and confidential.

         Based upon the Court's familiarity with these matters and in the interest of promoting the just, efficient and economical determination of this action, the Court issues the following orders at this time:

         1. All formal discovery shall be stayed in this case until the completion of the ENE Conference set herein;

         2. Plaintiff was previously ordered to complete the following by November 18, 2019 (Plaintiff has complied): Plaintiff's counsel shall lodge with Magistrate Judge Gallo's chambers, and serve on opposing counsel, a statement, not in excess of five pages, including:
