My computer locked right after I pulled up the docket and saw McIntosh attorney Tina Nicholson had entered a Motion to Dismiss with Prejudice – and all those hours I was waiting for it to get over its spell and cough up the document, I wondered dismissed what.
Now, I know: McIntosh finalized settlement with Forensic Engineering:
Plaintiffs have reached an amicable resolution to their dispute in accordance with the Notice of Settlement filed on November 9, 2007 [Doc. 797]. WHEREFORE, PREMISES CONSIDERED, Plaintiffs respectfully request that the Court enter an Order dismissing this cause and all its claims against Defendant, Forensic Analysis & Engineering Corp., with prejudice.
The November 9, 2007 Notice of Pending Settlement provides more background:
1) Plaintiffs have negotiated a settlement with FAEC in this instant litigation.
2) The settlement includes a full and complete dismissal of FAEC from this instant litigation with prejudice; a dismissal will be filed after the settlement is finalized.
3) In furtherance of this settlement, Plaintiffs, FAEC and non-party movant, Nellie Williams, have withdrawn all pending motions between them  and have asked this Court to abate is Order relative to Ms. Williams .
The length of time between the notice filed by Sid Backstrom and the settlement filed today was largely spent with McIntosh riding the lawyer merry-go-round until Ms. Nicholson’s appearance on their behalf after the KLG disqualification.
Anyone who read her recent letter to Judge Walker knows she’s not one you keep waiting – not in Oxford, for sure, or anywhere else for that matter.
Next? Better get in line.
