BY THE COURT:
Ronald L. Buckwalter
On July 9, 2012, the parties entered into a stipulation-which the Court signed and approved-that all counts against the City of Philadelphia and Officers Dougherty and Lugo would be dropped and that these parties would be dismissed as defendants from suit.
Moreover, Defendants' instant Motion for Summary Judgment does not include either Officer Hoover or Officer Hazzard as one of the moving officers. As such, the Court will presume that Defendants do not seek summary judgment on Plaintiff's claims as applied to either of these officers, and all claims against them shall therefore proceed to trial.
