UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 28, 2010
VANCE HILDERMAN, AN INDIVIDUAL; HIGHRELY, INC., A DELAWARE CORPORATION, PLAINTIFF,
ENEA TEKSCI, INC. DBA ENEA EMBEDDED TECHNOLOGY, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Barry Ted Moskowitz
[PROPOSED] ORDER GRANTING JOINT MOTION TO DISMISS ENTIRE ACTION WITH RESERVATION OF JURISDICTION TO ENFORCE SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT AND RELATED COUNTER CLAIMS
The parties have jointly requested that the Court dismiss the entire action with prejudice, while reserving jurisdiction to enforce the settlement agreement between the parties. The parties state that the entire case has been settled pursuant to a Settlement Agreement and Mutual Release with an effective date of June 18, 2010 ("Settlement Agreement"). Parties to an action may request that the court retain jurisdiction to enforce a settlement agreement. See Hagestad v. Tragesser, 49 F.3d 1430 (9th Cir. 1995). Since it would be economical for this Court to retain jurisdiction so that a breach of the Settlement Agreement would not require a new litigation, the Court retains jurisdiction to enforce the Settlement Agreement. All parties are ordered to comply with the terms of the Settlement Agreement.
Upon the Agreement of all parties, the entire action is dismissed with prejudice pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41 (a)(2). Each party shall pay its own costs and attorneys fees.
Hon. Barry Ted Moskowitz
