It is therefore ORDERED that the parties' Joint Motion to Approve Confidential Settlement Agreement and Release is GRANTED.' SIGNED this 1 day of September, 2019. ORLANDO L. GARCIA CHIEF U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE 'The Court will await the parties' submission of their Joint Stipulation of Dismissal with Prejudice. The case should not be closed yet.
