ORDER RE: SETTLEMENT AND DISPOSITION
On January 15, 2009, Plaintiff United States of America filed a Status Report in which it states "[t]he parties have reached a settlement in the above-captioned case and the Notice of Settlement has been filed." Therefore, a dispositional document shall be filed no later than February 4, 2009. 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 status conference scheduled for February 2, 2009, is reset for hearing at 9:00 a.m. on March 30, 2009, in the event that no dispositional document is filed, or if this action is not otherwise dismissed. Further, a joint status report shall be filed fourteen days prior to the status conference.*fn1
IT IS SO ORDERED.
