MEMORANDUM AND ORDER re 16 Settlement Conference. Fact discovery closed on May 17, 2017, and plaintiffs apparently have taken no discovery. Because these cases involve infant plaintiffs, the Court will not at this time recommend dismissal for lack of prosecution. However, less severe sanctions are in order, specifically, monetary sanctions imposed on plaintiffs' counsel, in the form of fee-shifting for the aborted May 22nd settlement conference that defense counsel was constrained to attend. If defendants wish to recover from plaintiffs' counsel the fees incurred by them in connection with that proceeding, they shall file a fee request by June 2, 2017, specifying the amount of time expended and Mr. Lima's hourly rate. Finally, the Court will tolerate no further delays in these cases or violations of court orders. The parties are directed to confer and, by June 2, 2017, to file a joint proposed schedule for expert discovery and requests for a pre-motion conference. Ordered by Chief Mag. Judge Roanne L. Mann on 5/30/2017. (Proujansky, Josh)
