IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 8, 2011
FREE AGENTS ENTERTAINMENT, LLC, HOOKS AND TAYLOR ENTERTAINMENT, LLC, AND DEON TAYLOR,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
ORDER RE: SETTLEMENT AND DISPOSITION
Plaintiff and Defendants Free Agents Entertainment, LLC and Deon Taylor filed a Joint Status Report ("JSR") on May 27, 2011, in which they state:
The parties have reached an agreement in principle to settle this matter in its entirety. The parties expect to execute a written settlement agreement and then request the dismissal of the entire action, with prejudice, by no later than July 11, 2011. Accordingly, the parties respectfully request that the pretrial scheduling conference currently set for June 13, 2011, be continued until a date after July 11, 2011. (JSR, 2:13-17, ECF No. 11.)
Therefore, a dispositional document shall be filed no later than July 11, 2011. 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 E.D. Cal. R. 160(b) ("A failure to file dispositional papers on the date prescribed by the Court may be grounds for sanctions.").
Further, the Status Conference scheduled for June 13, 2011, is continued to commence at 9:00 a.m. on August 1, 2011, in the event no dispositional document is filed, or if this action is not otherwise dismissed.*fn1 A joint status report shall be filed fourteen (14) days prior to the status conference, in which Plaintiff is required to include an explanation concerning how he is prosecuting this action against Defendant Hooks and Taylor Entertainment, LLC, and why this action should not be dismissed against this named defendant because of failure of prosecution.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
