"I would expect that the sooner all counsel sit down together to map out a litigation schedule, the better off all parties will be. I would request counsel to jointly advise me of a target date for that schedule to be provided to me. The court expects counsel/parties to work out problems/difficulties as quickly and reasonably as possible and in a practical way while not infringing on anyone's true rights. If for some valid reason something cannot be accomplished in that regard, counsel should attend upon me at a convenient 9:30 appointment or at a case conference."
