I. Statement of Facts and of the Case
This case is a diversity personal injury-automobile accident case which the district court referred to the undersigned for pre-trial management. (Doc. 90.) After managing the pretrial litigation of this matter for the past year, on April 26, 2011, we received notice that the parties have settled their claims.(Doc. 108.)
Given the parties' report that this matter has been settled, (Doc. 109), IT IS RECOMMENDED that this Court should enter a 60-day order, dismissing this action without prejudice, upon good cause shown within sixty (60) days, to reinstate the action if the settlement is not consummated, and subject to whatever Court approval the parties seek regarding the terms of the settlement. (See Doc. 108.)
The parties are further placed on notice that pursuant to Local Rule 72.3:

Such party shall file with the clerk of court, and serve on the magistrate judge and all parties, written objections which shall specifically identify the portions of the proposed findings, recommendations or report to which objection is made and the basis for such objections. The briefing requirements set forth in Local Rule 72.2 shall apply. A judge shall make a de novo determination of those portions of the report or specified proposed findings or recommendations to which objection is made and may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the findings or recommendations made by the magistrate judge. The judge, however, need conduct a new hearing only in his or her discretion or where required by law, and may consider the record developed before the magistrate judge, making his or her own determination on the basis of that record. The judge may also receive further evidence, recall witnesses or recommit the matter to the magistrate judge with instructions.
