The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
ORDER RE: SETTLEMENT AND DISPOSITION
On March 21, 2012, counsel for Defendants sent my Courtroom
Deputy an email, in which he stated in relevant part as follows:
I wanted to let the court know that we are in the process of resolving the Breed case, and thus will not be going to trial in your court on April 17. Mr. Burris and I are exchanging the paperwork and should be able to submit a dismissal to the court within 45 - 60 days.
My courtroom deputy responded to Defendants' counsel via electronic mail the same day, stating, "A notice of settlement needs to be filed that includes this information." The two March 21, 2012, emails are attached to this order.
No Notice of Settlement was filed as requested. However, in light of defense counsel's representations, the trial scheduled to commence on April 17, 2012, is vacated. A dispositional document shall be filed no later than May 28, 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, a status conference is scheduled to commence at 9:00 a.m. on June 25, 2012, in the event no dispositional document is filed, or if this action is not otherwise dismissed. A joint status report shall be filed fourteen (14) days prior to the status conference.
