OLD REPUBLIC NATIONAL TITLE INSURANCE CO., PLAINTIFF,
TRANSCONTINENTAL TITLE CO., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
Before the Court a Joint Motion to Stay Further Proceedings (Doc. 18). On October 1, 2007, the Court issued an Order (Doc. 13), granting Plaintiff's Motion to Extend Stay (Doc. 12), imposing a stay on all proceedings until this Court had received and decided Plaintiff's Motion to Remand. The parties now seek to stay all proceedings, including the decision on Plaintiff's Motion to Remand, while the instant matter and other related litigation pending in other Courts undergo mediation in the United States District Court of Massachusetts before United States Magistrate Judge Bowler (Doc. 18, ¶ 1).
For good cause, said Motion (Doc. 18) is GRANTED. This case is hereby STAYED pending mediation efforts in the United States District Court of Massachusetts. The parties shall advise the Court when the mediation has concluded OR file a Status Memorandum by January 31, 2008, whichever occurs earlier, so that the stay may be lifted.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
