Case3:13-cv-01595-LB Document23 Filed06/04/13 Page2 of 2

Defendants Pacific West Securities (“PWS”) and Pacific West Financial Group (“PWFG”).
Plaintiffs moved for an order confirming the arbitration award. Motion, ECF No. 5. PWS did not
oppose the motion, but PWFG did. Opposition, ECF No. 9.

On May 12, 2013, the court continued the hearing on Plaintiffs’ motion to June 20, 2013 and
ordered the parties to submit further briefing about whether PWFG agreed to arbitrate Plaintiffs’
claims before the FINRA Arbitration Panel. 5/12/2013 Order, ECF No. 19.

On June 3, 2013, the day on which some of the further briefing was due, Plaintiffs, PWS, and

PWFG filed a notice informing that court that they have reached an agreement to resolve the dispute
concerning PWFG and that Plaintiffs will timely dismiss their claim against PWFG with prejudice.
6/3/2013 Notice, ECF No. 22 at 2. The parties also stated that Plaintiffs will enter into a stipulated
judgment with PWS on or before June 5, 2013 and will file a proposed order and judgment
confirming the arbitration award. Id.

In light of these developments, the court vacates the motion hearing set for June 20, 2013 at 9:30

a.m. and DENIES AS MOOT Plaintiffs’ motion to confirm the arbitration award. To make sure
everything goes as planned, however, the court SETS a case management conference for June 20,
2013 at 11:00 a.m. in Courtroom C, 15th Floor, United States District Court, 450 Golden Gate
Avenue, San Francisco, California, 94102. The case management conference will be vacated
automatically if Plaintiffs timely dismiss their claim against PWFG and the parties timely file a
proposed order and judgment confirming the arbitration award.

IT IS SO ORDERED.

Dated: June 4, 2013
