IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NORTH DAKOTA
Elias Gipp, et al.,
Raymond Webb and United States
Case No. 1:19-cv-213
Judge Traynor issued on October 12, 2022, requiring the parties to participate in a courthosted settlement conference by July 31, 2023. (Doc. No. 79). Consequently, a settlement
conference was scheduled July 28, 2023, at 9:00 AM before the undersigned. (Doc. No. 82). The
settlement conference was later moved to December 5, 2023. (Doc. No. 106).
On November 13, 2023, the United States filed a “Motion to Terminate Court-Hosted
Settlement Conference.” (Doc. No. 137). It does not believe that a court-hosted settlement
conference would a productive or wise use of everyone’s resources given the parties’ recent
discussions and the present posture of this case. Consequently, it requests that settlement conference
be terminated. Plaintiffs have since filed a response, advising that they do not oppose the United
States’ motion. (Doc. No. 138)
The court GRANTS the United States’ motion. (Doc. No. 137). The settlement conference
scheduled for December 5, 2023, is cancelled. It shall be rescheduled as necessary at a later date.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated this 15th day of November, 2023.
