TURLOCK CONSTRUCTION, INC. and ROSY CONTO, Defendants. _______________________________/ ORDER This cause comes before the Court on the Parties' Joint Motion for Entry of Order of Dismissal with Prejudice and Retention of Jurisdiction. (Doc. 48). The Court grants the Parties' request to dismiss this case with prejudice. However, the Parties' settlement agreement would require the Court to retain jurisdiction for ten years.

Accordingly, it is ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that: (1) The Parties' Joint Motion for Entry of Order of Dismissal with Prejudice and Retention of Jurisdiction is GRANTED to the extent it seeks dismissal of this case with prejudice, and this case is DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE. (2) The Parties' Joint Motion for Entry of Order of Dismissal with Prejudice and Retention of Jurisdiction is DENIED to the extent it requests the Court to retain jurisdiction to supervise and enforce the terms of the Parties' settlement agreement.
