Initial Status Conference

Unless the parties appear earlier on a motion, the court generally will set the case for status within approximately 60 days of the filing of the complaint. At the initial status conference, the parties are to be prepared to (1) inform the court of the nature and scope of the case; (2) discuss the need for discovery; and (3) report on the possibility of settlement. At the first status hearing, the court generally will set a date for the completion of all discovery and schedule the next status hearing date.
