This is an announcement of the merest of non-news. Yesterday the parties to the Aureliano Santiago et al. v. City of L.A. et al. met before federal magistrate judge Charles F. Eick to discuss a settlement of the case. In the terse description of the minutes:

Case called. Counsel make their appearances. The Court hears discussion. Parties retire to chambers to proceed with the settlement conference.

Settlement is not reached.
