Unsuccessful meet & confer prompts court to order full-day meet & confer "under the Court’s auspices"

Where the court found that the parties had not made a sufficient good faith effort to resolve their discovery disputes, lead counsel were ordered to appear at the court in three weeks' time "for the purpose of meeting and conferring further under the Court’s auspices. Since the Court does not intend to excuse counsel until such time as the Court is satisfied that they indeed have made a good faith effort to eliminate the necessity for hearing the Motion or to eliminate as many of the disputes as possible, counsel would be well advised to clear their calendars for that entire day."
