04/27/2004Order/DispositionalFiled Stipulated Dismissal. On July 22, 2003, the parties to this appeal filed a stipulation to dismiss this appeal and remand this matter to the district court for modification of the order appealed from. On August 20, 2003, appellant filed with this court an order of the district court certifying that upon remand it is inclined to grant the parties' requested relief. On August 13, 2003, appellant, Herbert Jones, Jr., submitted a proper person letter. We note that Mr. Jones has neither sought nor been granted leave to file documents in proper person. See NRAP 46(b). Nevertheless, because we elect to resolve his letter on the merits, we direct the clerk of this court to file the letter received on August 13, 2003. Based on Mr. Jones' latest communication with the court, it appears that he is requesting this court to disregard the stipulation to dismiss and find that the parties have not reached a good faith settlement. We note that the determination of whether parties have reached a good faith settlement should be left to the discretion of the trial court. Accordingly, we deny appellant's request. This denial, however, is without prejudice to appellant's right to seek such relief in the district court. Cause appearing, we approve the parties' stipulation to dismiss this appeal. 'We remand this matter to the district court pursuant to its certification, and we dismiss this appeal.' NRAP 42(b). fn1[In light of this order, we deny Mr. Jones request' that this court remove his counsel, Mr. Gary Watson, and appoint another attorney in his place.] EN BANC 04-07700
