IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
November 29, 2010
GREATER NEW BEDFORD COMMUNITY HEALTH CENTER, INC., LONG TERM DISABILITY PLAN,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
ORDER RE: SETTLEMENT AND DISPOSITION FORT DEARBORN LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY,
Plaintiff filed a "Notice of Settlement" on November 24, 2010, in which she states, "this matter has settled [and] [t]he parties expect to document their agreement and dismiss this case within 21 days." (ECF No. 23.)
Therefore, a dispositional document shall be filed no later than December 15, 2010. 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. 160(b) ("A failure to file dispositional papers on the date prescribed by the Court may be grounds for sanctions.").
Further, the pending Motion for Summary Judgment is deemed withdrawn in light of the settlement. The Pretrial Conference scheduled to commence at 1:30 p.m. on March 14, 2011 shall remain on calendar, however, in the event no dispositional document is filed, or if this action is not otherwise dismissed.*fn1
IT IS SO ORDERED.
