Civil Action No. 99-1180-JTM


JOINT SUBMISSION OF THE PARTIES
CONCERNING MEDIATION, IN RESPONSE TO PARAGRAPH 4.G OF
THE COURT'S APRIL 13, 2000 REVISED SCHEDULING ORDER,
AND CONCERNING PROPOSED STATUS CONFERENCE DATES

Mediation

Pursuant to Paragraph 4.G of the Court's April 13, 2000, Revised Scheduling Order: (1) the parties exchanged names of possible mediators on May 1, 2000; (2) the parties have conferred concerning the proposed mediators; and (3) the parties hereby submit their recommendation:

When the parties exchanged names of possible mediators, both recommended one individual:

Hon. Michael Boudin
United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit

The parties have, of course, not contacted Judge Boudin as to his availability or willingness to act in this capacity, but both believe that he would be capable in this role. For the Court's convenience, the parties attach an excerpt on Judge Boudin from the Almanac of the Federal Judiciary.

Status Conference

In our last status conference, the Court discussed with the parties the desirability of periodic status conferences for the purpose of keeping the Court informed of developments in the case. Pursuant to this discussion, the parties propose the following dates for such a status conference:

Thursday, June 15, 2000
Thursday, June 22, 2000
Monday, June 26, 2000
Tuesday, June 27, 2000

Dated this 15th day of May, 2000
