The above conference has been scheduled by the Court at the request of the parties.

Each side must serve and lodge a short brief, on pleading paper and limited to no more than 3 pages, briefly discussing the issues to be addressed - by noon, at least two court days prior to the conference. No exhibits may be attached to the brief. The purpose of the brief is to provide the Court with an overview of the outstanding issues and is not to be used in place of a motion.

Counsel must have exhausted all meet and confer obligations before the informal discovery conference. To request an informal discovery conference, counsel should contact the Complex Coordinator by email, which must be contemporaneously copied to counsel for all parties to the action. Under Code of Civil Procedure Section 2016.080(c)(2), the time for bringing any motion to compel is tolled starting on the date a party makes the email request for an informal discovery conference to the Court.
