UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 26, 2011
RODNEY S. KOCH, PLAINTIFF,
DR. JEFFERY NEUBARTH, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sandra M. Snyder United States Magistrate Judge
(Docs. 36, 39, 41, and 54)
ORDER VACATING PLAINTIFF'S MOTIONS TO COMPEL FROM COURT'S CALENDAR PENDING SETTLEMENT DETERMINATION
Plaintiff Rodney Koch filed motions to compel on April 28, 2010, May 19, 2010, June 7, 2010, and July 15, 2010. The motions are ready for resolution. Local Rule 230(l). However, the parties are engaged in settlement negotiations, and neither the Court nor the parties are well served by an expenditure of resources on discovery issues that will be rendered moot should the parties reach a settlement agreement. Therefore, in light of 28 U.S.C. § 476(a)(1), the Civil Justice Reform Act, Plaintiff's motions to compel are DEEMED VACATED from the Court's calendar until a determination is reached regarding settlement. *fn1
