ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR ORDER REQUIRING DEFENDANT CHRISTOPHER SALEM TO ORDER AND PAY FOR TRANSCRIPTS
Alan C. Kay, Senior United States District Judge.
For the following reasons, the Court hereby GRANTS Plaintiff OneWest Bank,
FSB's Motion for Order Requiring Defendant Christopher Salem to Order and Pay for Transcripts.
FACTUAL AND PROCEDURAL BACKGROUND
This case arises out of two loans that Defendants J. Randall Farrar and Christopher Salem obtained from La Jolla Bank, FSB, which were secured by two mortgages for each loan on two pieces of residential property. Because the Court and the parties are familiar with the extensive history of this case, the Court includes here only those facts necessary for the disposition of the instant motion.
On August 26, 2013, the parties placed a settlement on the record, and the magistrate judge set a status conference regarding the completion of the settlement agreement for September 11, 2013. (Doc.

Plaintiff OneWest Bank, FSB therefore filed a Motion to Enforce Settlement Agreement on October 1, 2013. (Doc. No. 156.) A hearing was held on the Motion to Enforce on October 15, 2013, and on October 31, 2013 the magistrate judge issued its Findings and Recommendations Granting Plaintiff's Motion to Enforce Settlement Agreement. (Doc. No. 171 (" 10/31/13 F& R" ).) There being no objections to the 10/31/13 F& R, this Court issued its order adopting it on November 19, 2013. (Doc. No. 173 (" Order to Enforce Settlement" ).)
