IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF WEST VIRGINIA MARTINSBURG IMPULSE MONITORING, INC., Plaintiff, v. CIVIL ACTION NO. 3:14-CV-51 (JUDGE GROH) HUMANA HEALTH PLAN, INC. Defendant. ORDER GRANTING JOINT MOTION TO STAY The above-styled matter came before the Court for consideration of the parties’ “Joint Motion for Stay” [Doc. 15] filed on June 19, 2014. The parties ask this Court to stay proceedings in this matter while the parties are negotiating a contemplated global settlement in approximately sixty-six similar disputes in various jurisdictions throughout the United States. In this case, both parties agree to a stay of proceedings in this matter. In light of the global nature of the contemplated settlement negotiations and in the interests of judicial economy, the Court GRANTS the parties’ Joint Motion to Stay and ORDERS that proceedings are STAYED in this matter except for the pending motion to dismiss. The Court ORDERS the parties to file a response and a reply, if any, to the motion to dismiss so that the Court may rule on the pending motion. Additionally, unless the Court is advised at an earlier date of a related settlement or non-settlement, the parties shall report the status of their negotiations through a joint filing on or before sixty days following the entry 1 of this Order and shall show cause why the stay should not be lifted if the case has not been settled at that point. It is so ORDERED. The Clerk is directed to transmit copies of this Order to all counsel of record herein. DATED: June 23, 2014 2
