Take notice that the Trial Staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) will convene a second plenary conference in the above-referenced cases on Tuesday, August 26, 2003 at 10 a.m. in Hearing Room 1 at the offices of the Commission, 888 1st Street, Washington, DC 20426. The conference will continue to be held as a settlement conference pursuant to Rule 602 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, 18 CFR 385.602. Therefore, participation at the conference will be limited to the Identified Entities listed above, interveners in the instant dockets, and Trial Staff.
At the conference, Trial Staff plans to initially meet with the Identified Entities and all interveners to discuss the overall status of the proceeding. In that regard, Trial Staff plans to discuss with all the parties procedures that can be adopted to streamline the discovery and trial phases of the instant case for those entities that cannot be removed from the case by means of settlement or dismissal prior to September 3, 2003. It would be Trial Staff's aim to find a way to preserve fruitful settlement discussions for those cases that do not settle or are not dismissed before September 3, 2003. Similarly, Trial Staff is mindful of the numerous petitions for rehearing and requests for clarification that have been filed and would like to discuss the ramifications of those pleadings and potential Commission action on those filings.
Thereafter, Trial Staff proposes, as necessary, to meet with the Identified Entities and the Intervener Groups. As time permits, Trial Staff would also be willing to meet with individual Identified Entities about the particular status of their cases.
All parties with questions regarding this second plenary conference may contact Joel M. Cockrell at 202-502-8153, Edith A. Gilmore at 202-502-8632, or Janet K. Jones at 202-502-8165.Start Signature
