No. C 10-03561 WHA
PROPOSED FINDINGS OF FACT
AND CONCLUSIONS OF LAW RE
ALL ISSUES OF FACT AND LAW
THAT MUST BE RESOLVED BY
THE JUDGE, INCLUDING SCOPE
OF PROTECTION OF THE
By NOON ON THE SECOND BUSINESS DAY following the close of evidence in Phase One,
both sides shall file proposed findings of fact, each identified by number as to any issue of fact
that is for the judge to resolve. Each proposed finding should be concise and limited to one or
two or (at most) three lines of text (exclusive of any block quotes from trial exhibits) followed
by exact trial record cites fully supporting the proposed finding. The proposals should be at a
level of specificity/generality so as to fit within the page limit set forth below. As a rule of
thumb, less controverted subjects may be captured in more generalized proposed findings; more
controversial subjects, however, usually require greater specificity and more proposed findings.
Block quotes and record cites may be single-spaced (and indented) but otherwise the proposals
should be double-spaced. Example:
1. When defendant went through the
Hayes and Gough, the light was red in his direction.
Jones at RT 97:1–3
Young at RT 15:11–12
The same submission should also set forth each proposed conclusion of law. Each
proposed conclusion of law must briefly identify the proposed findings of fact supporting the
conclusion and the legal authority therefor (quoting the key language of said authority). The
overall length of the submission must be 35 pages or less.
By NOON THREE CALENDAR DAYS LATER, the opposing side must file and serve a
response. The response must state, separately as to each proposed finding, whether the
responding party agrees with the proposed finding and if not in full agreement, then the full
extent to which, considering the duty of good faith and candor, the responding party admits the
proposed finding. To the extent that the responding side objects in any respect to the proposed
finding, it must state (i) the extent to which the opposition is based on a failure of the record
cites to support the proposal (explaining why they do not support it) and (ii) the extent to which
the objection is based on contrary evidence (citing the contrary evidence) or lack of credibility
(citing relevant evidence). Example:
1. Agree that the light was red but the light had just
The submission shall similarly state the extent to which the responding party agrees with
each conclusion of law proposed by the other side. If there is any disagreement, the responding
side must state (i) the extent to which the disagreement is based on a failure of the supporting
findings, (ii) the extent to which the disagreement is based on a failure of the cited authorities to
support the conclusion, and (iii) the extent to which contrary authorities contradict the legal
basis for the proposed conclusion.
changed a split second before.
Mack RT 42:17–18
The responding submission should reproduce each original finding or conclusion and
then, immediately after each, supply the responsive information. It may not exceed twice the
overall number of pages used by the submission to which it responds.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
