The stipulation also states that Engle Martin withdraws its pending Motion for Leave to Amend its Answer to

cause shown that the settlement has not been completed and further litigation is necessary.
Because all claims in this matter have been dismissed, 2 the Court directs the Clerk of Court to
close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 16th day of December, 2016.
