IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA

CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF TOXIC SUBSTANCES CONTROL,
CHARLES V. KESTER, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
ORDER AND RELATED CROSS-CLAIMS, COUNTERCLAIMS, and THIRD-PARTY ACTIONS
Plaintiff filed a "Joint VDRP Completion Report" on March 29, 2011, in which it states: "[a] settlement was reached during the mediation, subject to execution and Court approval of a Consent Decree." (ECF No. 1201.) Plaintiff also states that the Consent Decree "will be submitted to the Court for approval within 90 days," which "will resolve the claims in this action, except for the Department's claims against Sharon Stone[.]" Id. The docket indicates that Plaintiff has begun prosecution of a default judgment against Sharon Stone. (ECF Nos. 1188-1190.) Since Plaintiff represents that the parties involved with the VDRP mediation have reached a conditional settlement, Plaintiff's pending Motion to Strike Affirmative Defenses (ECF No. 1183) and Motion for Summary Judgment (ECF No. 1191), scheduled for hearing April 18, 2011, are DEEMED WITHDRAWN.
Further, Plaintiff shall file a motion for entry of default judgment as to Defendant Sharon L. Stone before the Magistrate Judge within one hundred (100) days of the date on which this Order is filed. If Plaintiff fails to timely file the motion, Plaintiff shall show cause in writing no later than 4:00 p.m. on July 15, 2011, why this defendant should not be dismissed for failure of prosecution.
