Having failed to negotiate a settlement between themselves, defendant Mary Dee and the FTC have filed a joint settlement conference motion.

The motion requests a settlement conference be held before a Magistrate Judge.

In effect, the Magistrate Judge will act as a neutral mediator between the parties in an attempt to settle the Digital Altitude case with respect to Dee.

The motion comes after both Mary Dee and Michael Force were prohibited access to Digital Altitude victim funds to pay for lifestyle expenses.

The final paragraph in the October 2nd motion advises the court that

Defendant Michael Force has stated he is not interested in participating in a settlement conference.

As of a few months ago, settlement negotiations between Force and the FTC had come to a “standstill“.

Having been ditched by his lawyers, Force is currently representing himself against the FTC pro se.
