and the purpose of a settlement conference being to attempt to assist the parties reach a mutually agreeable resolution of a dispute without a decision on the merits;
and hence there is no need to produce witnesses for testimony or have them produce things for such a proceeding;
and the Court having already entered an order directing the parties to have clients with full settlement authority appear in-person at the conference;
and it further appearing that the need for further compulsory process is inappropriate and unnecessary;
IT IS THEREFORE on this 13th day of July, 2007
ORDERED that the plaintiff's request for the issuance of subpoenas directing individuals to appear at the settlement conference with the Court is denied.
