cross-claim against Gosnell and Osceola remained unresolved. RehabCare and Hope
informed the Court, however, that they reached a settlement resolving the remaining
claims. Accordingly, dismissal of this action is now appropriate.2

UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
Because Hope’s cross-claim is based on the entry of an adverse judgment, and the
Court is not entering judgment against Hope, the cross-claim is dismissed. This dismissal
does not address the potential merit of the cross-claim.
