IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 20, 2012
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. Senior United States District Judge
ORDER RE: SETTLEMENT AND DISPOSITION
Defendant filed a "Notice of Settlement" on December 19, 2012, in which it states: "this matter has settled[, and d]ocuments dismissing the action ar forthcoming." (ECF No. 38.)
Therefore, a dispositional document shall be filed no later than January 9, 2013. See E.D. Cal. R. 160(b)(prescribing that dispositional documents shall be filed within twenty-one days of the date the notice of settlement is filed absent good cause to extend the deadline). 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. Id. ("A failure to file dispositional papers on the date prescribed by the Court may be grounds for sanctions.").
IT IS SO ORDERED.
