ORDER REGARDING SETTLEMENT AND IMPENDING DISMISSAL
The Court has been advised by Summit Financial Resources that the parties to the primary action have reached a settlement agreement.*fn1 Additionally, Schneider National Carriers states that it has reached a settlement agreement as to its counterclaims against Peerless Premier Appliance Company (Doc. 399). In each instance, the Court is aware that additional time is needed to finalize the settlement documents. As a result, the undersigned District Judge hereby DIRECTS the Clerk of Court, 60 days after this Order is docketed, to DISMISS all remaining parties with prejudice except Summit Financial Resources, David Hursey, and Susan Hursey. Each party shall bear his or its own costs, unless otherwise provided in the settlement documents.
If the parties fail to finalize the settlement within the 60-day period, they may -- before that period expires -- move to postpone dismissal with prejudice to a later date. Because all claims have been settled except those pertaining to David and Susan Hursey, which are stayed, the Court CANCELS all settings herein, including the September 4, 2009 Final Pre-Trial Conference and the September 14, 2009 Bench Trial. Once the bankruptcy proceedings as to David and Susan Hursey conclude, the Court will set a status conference with respect to any and all remaining claims against them.
The Clerk of the Court shall postpone entry of judgment until the conclusion of the entire case. To reiterate, upon dismissal of the above-described claims in sixty days, the only claims remaining in this action will be those between Summit, David Hursey, and Susan Hursey, which are stayed pending resolution of the Hurseys' bankruptcy proceedings.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
MICHAEL J. REAGAN United States District Judge
