ORDER REQUESTING MEDIATION STATUS REPORT
The Court has received Plaintiff's December 12, 2012 mediation status report. (ECF No. 26.) In it, Plaintiff represented that the parties failed to participate in mediation prior to the Court-ordered December 10 mediation cutoff date (which, the Court notes, supersedes any stipulations by the parties to the contrary). Accordingly, the parties are hereby ORDERED TO SHOW CAUSE no later than January 28, 2013, why the Court should not sanction both sides for failure to participate in good-faith settlement negotiations.
The OSC will be discharged upon joint notice that the parties have participated in good faith in mediation. Additionally, the Court will take no further action on Defendant's pending Motion for Summary Judgment until the OSC has been discharged.
