ORDER RE: SETTLEMENT AND DISPOSITION
A Notice of Settlement was filed on February 12, 2009, in which it is stated "the parties have settled this action." Therefore, a dispositional document shall be filed no later than March 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 March 2, 2009, is rescheduled to commence at 9:00 a.m., on April 13, 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
