IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 6, 2011
NELSON & KENNARD,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
ORDER RE: SETTLEMENT AND DISPOSITION
Plaintiff filed a "Notice of Settlement" on December 6, 2011, in which she states, "the parties have settled the case in its entirety and the parties will file a stipulation for dismissal within twenty (20) days." (ECF No. 11.)
Therefore, a dispositional document shall be filed no later than December 27, 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 final pretrial conference scheduled for hearing on May 21, 2012, will remain on calendar, in the event no dispositional document is filed, or if this action is not otherwise dismissed.*fn1 A joint pretrial statement shall be filed seven (7) days prior to the final pretrial conference.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
