IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 3, 2012
SCOTT N. JOHNSON,
RICHARD H. RUFF,
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 July 2, 2012, in which he states, "the parties have settled this action[, and d]ispositional documents will be filed within (20) calendar days." (ECF No. 9.)
Therefore, a dispositional document shall be filed no later than July 23, 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 Status Conference scheduled for hearing at 9:00 a.m. on August 6, 2012, will remain on calendar in the event no dispositional document is filed, or if this action is not otherwise dismissed.*fn1
IT IS SO ORDERED.
