THE HONORABLE JOHN C. COUGHENOUR
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
GENE UI BAKER,
BROWN, et al.,
CASE NO. C21-0725-JCC
The following Minute Order is made by direction of the Court, the Honorable John C.
Coughenour, United States District Judge:
Before the Court is the parties’ third request to modify the briefing schedule for this
bankruptcy appeal. (Dkt. No. 12). In their previous request, the parties stated they had entered a
settlement agreement in principal but were awaiting approval from the bankruptcy court. (See
Dkt. No. 10 at 1.) Now, they state that the bankruptcy court approved the settlement agreement
on November 15, 2021, but they still need time to “conclude the settlement.” (Dkt. No. 12 at 2.)
Given that the parties have settled the case, the Court sees little reason to maintain a briefing
schedule and is disinclined to afford further continuances without a timeline for closing this

matter. Accordingly it is hereby ORDERED that:
1. The parties’ stipulation (Dkt. No. 12) is DENIED without prejudice.
2. Within 7 days of this order, the parties must file a revised stipulation (1) specifying
when they expect to “conclude the settlement,” and (2) proposing a prompt deadline
to file notice of voluntary dismissal or show cause why the action should not be
dismissed based on the approved settlement.
DATED this 18th day of November 2021.
Clerk of Court
