J.M. v. Liberty Union High School District

Filing 54

ORDER APPROVING MINOR'S COMPROMISE AND DISMISSING CASE.Because the dismissal is based on a settlement agreement that is attached to the motion for approval, the court construes the motion as a joint motion and does not wait the ordinary period for a statement of non-opposition. If the court has overlooked something procedurally, the parties are welcome to file a stipulated dismissal or other proposed order within 14 days. (Beeler, Laurel) (Filed on 12/5/2017)
