UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
September 12, 2008
LYLE HOOD, PLAINTIFF,
G. SMITH, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lawrence J. O'Neill United States District Judge
The parties have submitted a joint request to vacate trial and pretrial dates pending settlement of this matter. The parties indicate that, given the likelihood that settlement will not be finalized prior to the due dates for dispositive motions, vacating those dates is in the interest of judicial economy and efficiency. The court will vacate the motion filing deadline, but the trial date will remain, pending notification re the terms and conditions of settlement in a signed-bythe-parties format.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The dispositive motion filing deadline is vacated.
2. The parties are directed to submit a status report re settlement progress within forty five days of the date of service of this order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
