S&S HAY CO., et al., Defendants. 9 10 In November 2014, after a bench trial in this case began, the parties indicated that they had 11 reached a settlement. See Doc. 83. Over a year later, because the parties had not submitted any 12 documents confirming their settlement and dismissing the case, the parties were instructed to file a joint 13 status report indicating whether they had finalized the terms of their settlement. Doc. 85. In their January 14 29, 2016 joint status report, the parties indicated they had not finalized their settlement. See Doc. 86. 15 The Court therefore ordered the parties to submit dispositional documents or, if their settlement had not 16 been finalized, a joint status report updating the Court on the status of the case by August 17, 2016. 17 The parties failed to meet that deadline. On September 23, 2016, the Court ordered the parties to 18 show cause why this case should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute and for their failure to obey 19 Court orders. Doc. 88. The Court directed the parties to submit dispositional documents or a joint status 20 report explaining why settlement had not been completed. Id. The parties filed a joint status report 21 indicating that they needed additional time to comply with the settlement terms, and asked that the 22 deadline to submit dispositional documents be extended until the end of 2016. Doc. 89 at 1. The parties 23 also requested that the Court exercise jurisdiction over the matter for purposes of settlement enforcement 24 until December 30, 2016. Id. at 1-2. Accordingly, the Court ordered the parties to submit dispositional 25 documents by January 6, 2017. 1 1 The parties failed to meet that deadline. Accordingly, this case is DISMISSED WITH 2 PREJUDICE for the parties’ failure to prosecute and repeated failure to comply with Court deadlines. 3 The Clerk of Court is directed to CLOSE this case. 4 5 6 7 IT IS SO ORDERED.
