IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 23, 2012
KITTRICH CORPORATION, A CALIFORNIA CORPORATION,
GLOBAL GLORY INDUSTRIAL LIMITED, A HONG KONG CORPORATION, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. Senior United States District Judge
ORDER RE: SETTLEMENT AND DISPOSITION
The parties filed a "Notice of Settlement" on October 19, 2012, in which they state: "the parties have reached agreement on the principal terms of a settlement[,] . . . are currently preparing settlement documentation[,] and, upon execution of such documentation, shall file a request for dismissal of the action in its entirety." (ECF No. 33, 2:1-3.) The parties further state that they expect a dispositional document to "be filed within 60 days" and request that the Court "stay all pending deadlines and vacate all pending court appearances." Id. at 2:4-6.
Therefore, a dispositional document shall be filed no later than December 18, 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 on July 15, 2013, and trial, scheduled to commence on October 8, 2013, 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.
