Before BIRCH and CARNES, Circuit Judges, and PROPST* , Senior District Judge.


Consistent with our prior opinion in this case, see Lancaster v. Monroe County, Alabama, 116 F.3d 1419, 1428-29 & n. 11 (11th Cir. 1997), after our issuance of that opinion, the parties moved for a stay of the mandate pending the results of mediation. We stayed the mandate, and have now been informed that the parties have worked out a settlement of the entire case, which they wish to effectuate in the district court.

Accordingly, we remand the entire case to the district court for that purpose. Our mandate will issue forthwith and the parties may file the necessary papers in the district court to effectuate their settlement.


Honorable Robert B. Propst, Senior U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of Alabama, sitting by designation
