Civil Rights Case in District Court

Today's Federal District Court daily calendar had a Rule 16 scheduling conference for a 42 USC 1983 Civil Rights Act case with several veteran litigators on both sides. There are a number of state agencies and officials named in the lawsuit:
CV 05-00566JMS-LEK
R.G., an individual; C.P., an individual by and through her next friend, A.W. and J.D., an individual
Lois K. Perrin Tamara Lange Paul Alston Mei-Fei Kuo Angela L. Padilla Matthew I. Hall Marilyn D. Martin-Culver Ashleigh E. Aitken
Lillian Koller, Director of the State Department of Human Services, in her individual and official capacities; Sharon Agnew, Director of Youth Services, etc., et al.
Lisa M. Ginoza Heidi M. Rian Blair A. Goto Kendall J. Moser John F. Molay Hugh R. Jones Renee N.C. Schoen William J. Wynhoff Dennis K. Ferm
Rule 16 Scheduling Conference [Tamara Lange by phone: 415-293-6361] [Matthew I. Hall by phone: 415-268-6954]
The next big legal battle in the horizon is a preliminary injunction on December 20, 2005. Once that is decided, one won't need a crystal ball to tell which way the case is headed on the final equitable relief.

Some of the above attorneys are going to have a happy holiday season, and some are not.
