    I believe the statistics fluctuate between 90 to 95 percent of cases settling at some point before trial. Just because it did not settle at mediation does NOT by any means it won't settle before trial. Sometimes mediations take place prematurely, which results in a waste of time and no settlement. Often you can ask the judge for a settlement conference with the Court (often called a "Mandatory Settlement Conference"), and those are usually held closer to trial. Also, after expert discovery...

  2. What happens if I pursue DFEH claim and EEOC claim solo? What potential benefits can it be to me?

    In California, it is my opinion you are better off just utilizing the DFEH. It covers eerything the EEOC does and more. It also keeps it a state issue, not federal. Having said that, I almost never see either entity do anything to help people battle discrimination. it is generally a waste of time that results in nothing beneficial. I think you are best off getting a lawyer and getting your immediate Right to Sue so you can take legal action and have no limits on the amounts you can...

    You don't need to justify or argue the merits of your particular discovery request when making it. Just make a clear, succinct request and allow the otherside to object or respond. At that time, you can "meet and confer" with your opposition as to their responses and at that time you can argue why your request is relevant and reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence. For documents, try simple ones like "Produce any and all police or other law enforcement agency...

    I am unsure if you are being sued as an individual or if you have a corporation. If you have a corporation, you MUST have an attorney representing you in Court (by law). Regardless, if this Plaintiff's attorney is not delusional or on serious drugs, then he feels he has huge cases if he is seeing up to 25 milllion dollars. I would not take this lightly, and I would not seek sanctions or plan on getting the case dismised this early on. You could file a demurrer or motion to strike, but you...

    I feel like that is a misunderstanding you heard someone say. Or, I have no idea without looking it up. Perhaps, Preston made an oral objection at 10:13 a.m. or objection to code section 1013?? Give more info and I will do my best to give you a real solid answer.

    Ultimate defense to these kind of cases is the truth. If she is telling the truth, you have no case for defamation or slander. However, you also could look into intentional infliction of emotional distress.

    In California, the Courts seem to handle mediations differently depending on which Court and which Judge you have. There should be documentation that you received that clearly states what issues are going to be discussed by the mediator. You can also try calling the Court department your case is in and ask the clerk for this information. You could also try getting a hold of the mediator for questions too. As for attorneys, first, let me recommend that you retain one as soon as possible....
