ORDER RE: SETTLEMENT AND DISPOSITION
On August 1, 2008, Plaintiff filed a notice of settlement in which it states "[t]he parties have reached a settlement in the above-captioned case." Therefore, a settlement document or dismissal document shall be filed no later than August 29, 2008. See L.R. 16-160(b) (stating a date for filing documents disposing of the action "shall not be more than twenty (20) calendar days from the date of [when the settlement notification was received]"). Failure to respond by this deadline may be construed as consent to dismissal of this action without prejudice, and a dismissal order could be filed. See L.R. 16-160(b) ("A failure to file dispositional papers on the date prescribed by the Court may be grounds for sanctions.").
The final pretrial conference and trial dates remain on calendar, in the event that the above referenced settlement documents are not filed, or this action is not dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
