UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 22, 2012
ONDRE SELTZER, AN INDIVIDUAL,
HEARING HEADS AND TAILS, INC., A CALIFORNIA CORPORATION; ANTHONY LOIACONO, ANTHONY LOIACONO, AN INDIVIDUAL; AND DOES 1 THROUGH 10, INCLUSIVE, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Honorable Janis L. Sammartino United States District Judge
ORDER RE: MARCH 1, 2012,
Presently before the Court is Defendants Heads and Tails, Inc., and Anthony Loiacono's (collectively, "Defendants") motion to enforce agreed settlement and dismiss action. (Mot. to Enforce, ECF No. 29) Also before the Court are Plaintiff Ondre Seltzer's ("Seltzer") response in opposition, (Resp. in Opp'n, ECF No. 35), and Defendants' reply in support, (Reply in Supp., ECF No. 28). A hearing on the motion is currently scheduled for March 1, 2012, at 1:30p.m.
The Court finds that in light of the factual issues raised by Seltzer, the motion cannot be decided absent an evidentiary hearing. See Callie v. Near, 829 F.2d 888, 890 (9th Cir. 1987) ("Where material facts concerning the existence or terms of an agreement to settle are in dispute, the parties must be allowed an evidentiary hearing.") (citing Russell v. Puget Sound Tug & Barge Co., 737 F.2d 1510, 1511 (9th Cir. 1984)). Thus, in lieu of the hearing on Defendants' motion, the Court will hold a status hearing on March 1, 2012, to set an evidentiary hearing for this matter.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
