Parties Met for Mediation, Waiting on Hearing Date

– Posted November 16, 2017

In September, Swift requested Plaintiffs’ attorneys to engage in the first settlement mediation—this is the first movement toward settlement negotiation since the case was filed. The parties held a mediation on October 21 in San Francisco, with a private mediator—Mark Rudy. While positions were discussed, no resolution was reached at that time and no further on-going discussions are currently planned. This is typical of complex cases such as this one. While GSD does not expect a quick settlement, we are confident of our chances of ultimate success in this case.

We are still awaiting a hearing date from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals for oral argument, and will update the website when it is known.
