09/01/2004Order/ProceduralFiled Order. This court entered an order directing counsel for appellant to show cause why sanctions should not be imposed pursuant to the recommendation of the settlement judge. Counsel for appellant has filed a response to that order. In that response counsel represents that he and appellant participated in the settlement conference in good faith. Counsel explains that his client wished this court to resolve the appeal on the merits as the case presents an issue of first impression that 'clearly requires precedent from Nevada's highest state court.' Additionally, we note that appellant filed a settlement conference statement and attended the settlement conference proceedings with authority to settle as required by NRAP 16. Accordingly, we conclude that the imposition of sanctions is not proper under these circumstances. 04-15899
