CIVIL NO. 5:05-cv-817 (GTS/DEP) JUDGMENT DISMISSING ACTION BY REASON OF SETTLEMENT The Court having been advised by counsel that the parties in this action have entered into an agreement in settlement of all claims in this action, and that they reasonably anticipate finalizing their agreement shortly, following which this action will be discontinued, with prejudice, by stipulation pursuant to Rule 41(a)(1)(ii) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
