On February 8, 2012, attorneys for the plaintiffs met with attorneys for defendant Kraft Foods Global, Inc. to discuss scheduling for discovery and other matters pertaining to this lawsuit.  The parties agreed on a number of dates, which were submitted to the court on February 22, 2012. One part of this meeting, as well as prior discussions, was the fact that the parties were both contemplating resolution of the lawsuit.  As the parties jointly stated to the court in their filing,

“Counsel are presently discussing resolution, and have agreed to an informal exchange of information designed to facilitate early resolution.  Counsel believe and have expressed a desire to achieve early resolution without the necessity for protracted or expensive litigation, which is why counsel have proposed a delay in the commencement of formal discovery. We expect to exchange all necessary information to allow for a complete settlement within four (4) months. Counsel in this case have been able to successfully resolve two similar cases and are basing the intended resolution in this case consistent with the terms of the prior cases.”

The parties filed a joint discovery plan and pre-trial report.  On the basis of this filing, the court issued a scheduling order consistent with the agreement of the parties.
