[CA] Status Conference vs. Mandatory Settlement Conference
#1
Question 
Hello, my case is in California. I have been representing myself for these past couple years. My case has been open since Oct-1998. My case went off radar for some of the years in between as I had to leave California due to financial reasons. Out of sight, out of mind. Anyway, for the past 3 years this case has been in a battle of the paperwork. The Defendants wanted me to see a QME [final step] and after their deceit was shown to Appeal Judges, that was entirely tossed.

Many times I have been sent notification for a Status Conference, of course to be held in California. When I make arrangements to be there, the Defendants send an attorney with no authority to do anything. We sitdown in the WCAB area and then after couple hours of just talking, we part ways.

I now receive a "Notice of Hearing Status Conference" and a Defendant letter saying they scheduled a "Mandatory Settlement Conference". I am wondering, is there a difference between these two Conferences?

not much
but a settlement conferemce is required before the court will schedule a full hearing.
