ECF No. 15. In support, the parties state that a settlement has been 23 reached but they require additional time to finalize the settlement before the matter is ripe 24 for dismissal. Id. at 2. Because the case has settled, all other pending dates before 25 Magistrate Judge Lopez are hereby VACATED, including the telephonic status conference 26 on June 22, 2021. See ECF No. 14. Any matters currently scheduled before the district 27 judge shall remain in effect pending notice from that court. Because the notice of settlement 28 /// 1 18cv2560-DMS-LL 1 has effectively stayed discovery-related dates, the Court DENIES AS MOOT the Joint 2 Motion to Stay Discovery and Pretrial Deadlines. 3 The parties are ordered to file their joint motion for dismissal of this case, signed by 4 counsel of record and any unrepresented parties, no later than October 4, 2021. A proposed 5 order on the joint motion for dismissal must be emailed to the district judge's chambers 1 6 on the same day. If the signed joint motion for dismissal is timely filed, the parties and 7 attorneys are not required to make any further appearances before Judge Lopez. 8 If the fully executed joint motion for dismissal is not filed by October 4, 2021, then 9 all counsel of record and unrepresented parties are required to appear in person for a 10 Settlement Disposition Conference. The Settlement Disposition Conference will be held 11 on October 12, 2021 at 9:30 a.m. PST in Courtroom 2B. 12 If counsel of record or any unrepresented party fails to appear at the Settlement 13 Disposition Conference, or the parties fail to file the signed joint motion for dismissal in a 14 timely manner, the Court will issue an order to show cause why sanctions should not be 15 imposed for failing to comply with this Order. IT IS SO ORDERED. 16 17 Dated: June 4, 2021 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 The proposed order shall be emailed pursuant to section 2(h) of the United States District Court for the Southern District of California's Electronic Case Filing Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual, available at 1 2 18cv2560-DMS-LL
