A federal magistrate will meet today with lawyers for a California hospital and the family of a 13-year-old girl who was declared brain dead after tonsil surgery.

A judge ordered representatives of Children's Hospital Oakland and the family of Jahi McMath to attend the mandatory settlement conference to try to avoid going to trial.

The hospital maintains that Jahi is legally dead and that the ventilator keeping her heart pumping should be removed.

The girl's mother wants to transfer her to another facility.
