IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
September 28, 2011
UNIVERSAL CASUALTY COMPANY,
A & H EXPRESS, INC., AMANDEEP SANDU, AJMER SINGH, JACKIE FLETCHER, CLAYTON BAKER, ROBERT NEWCOMER, DENENE DELGADO, MICHAEL IRION, ESTATE OF CLAY NEWCOMER, ESTATE OF DOTSIE IRION, PROGRESSIVE CLASSIC INSURANCE COMPANY, NATIONWIDE MUTUAL INSURANCE COMPANY, 21ST CENTURY INSURANCE COMPANY,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
On September 12, 2011 Plaintiff Universal Casualty Company filed a "Notice of Intent to Deposit" $492,881.10 with the Court, in which Plaintiff states this amount "was allocated to the potential heirs of Clayton Newcomer whose rights, if any, to the $492,881.10 remain to be determined by the Court." (ECF No. 37.) Further, on September 14, 2011 Plaintiff filed a "Stipulation for Entry of Order Enjoining Litigations or Proceedings" and a "Stipulation to Discharge Universal Casualty Company[.]" (ECF Nos. 40-41.)
However, Plaintiff has yet to deposit the referenced amount with the Clerk's Office. Therefore, it appears Plaintiff is seeking "discharge" from this action before it has deposited the referenced amount with the Clerk's Office. The "Stipulation to Discharge Universal Casualty Company" seeks a ruling from the undersigned judge that Plaintiff "is hereby discharged" even though Plaintiff has not yet done what Plaintiff states it intends to do in its "Notice of Intent to Deposit" filed September 12, 2011.
The above referenced Stipulations will not be further considered until after the referenced funds are deposited with the Court, or until after an explanation is provided why the Stipulations should nevertheless be considered. Therefore, Plaintiff shall deposit the referenced funds with the Clerk's Office within ten (10) days of the date on which this order is filed, or explain in a filing due no later than 4:00 p.m. on October 14, 2011, why the Stipulations should be considered notwithstanding Plaintiff's failure to deposit the referenced funds as stated in Plaintiff's "Notice of Intent to Deposit" filed on September 12, 2011.
