FIDELITY MORTGAGE OF CALIFORNIA, INC., ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
On August 2, 2011, the court ordered Deanna Walters ("plaintiff") and defendant and cross-claimant James York ("York", together with plaintiff, the "parties"), to submit to the court a joint statement setting forth "(i) whether all amounts due under the parties' stipulation have now been paid, even if belatedly; and (ii) what relief is appropriate going forward."
ECF 92. On August 5, 2011, the parties submitted a joint statement wherein they agreed that plaintiff has paid all property taxes and has not paid all rent payments; however, the parties disagreed regarding the relief Mr. York is entitled to based on plaintiff's failure to comply with the parties' stipulations and related court orders. ECF 94. The court requires further briefing with citation to legal authority to determine what relief is appropriate, in light of defendant's still-pending ex parte application and renewal of application for an order filed on July 19, 2011.*fn1
