It was announced this week that a settlement conference has been scheduled.  This announcement followed two delays in a hearing on defense motions for the re-sentencing phase.  Jodi Arias was convicted of first-degree murder, but the jury didn’t agree on the sentencing.  A mistrial of the sentencing phase was declared.

Oral arguments on motions are set for October 4th, and the settlement conference is set for October 24th.
