ORDER RE: SETTLEMENT AND DISPOSITION
Plaintiff filed a "Request for Judicial Notice of Settlement" on January 4, 2012, in which it states, the parties "have settled all claims relative to the above-entitled action in their entirety," and "[s]ettlement documents, including a Stipulation of Dismissal[,] are being prepared for defense counsel by Plaintiff's counsel," which "Plaintiff's counsel anticipates . . . will be filed with the Court, promptly." (ECF No. 15.)
Therefore, a dispositional document shall be filed no later than January 25, 2012. 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 January 17, 2012, is continued to commence at 1:30 p.m. on March 5, 2012, 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.
