ORDER RE: SETTLEMENT AND DISPOSITION
Plaintiff Federal Insurance Company filed a "Notice of Settlement" on October 31, 2011, in which it states, "the parties in this matter have reached a settlement of the entire action[, and s]ettlement documents are presently being finalized and signatures being collected." (ECF No. 30.)
Therefore, a dispositional document shall be filed no later than November 22, 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, Plaintiff "requests the Court to vacate the date presently set for service of Defendant, Sierra Ba[y] Transport[.]"
Therefore, Plaintiff's request is granted and Plaintiff shall serve Defendant Sierra Bay Transport no later than December 22, 2011, in the event no dispositional document is filed, or if this action is not otherwise dismissed.
