Order to Show Cause Re: Dismissal for Lack of Prosecution

N/A

Absent a showing of good cause, an action must be dismissed without prejudice if the summons
and complaint are not served on a defendant within 120 days after the complaint is filed. Fed. R. Civ. P.
4(m).

In the present case, it appears that this time period has not been met. Accordingly, the court, on

its own motion, orders plaintiff to show cause in writing on or before April 26, 2011, why this action
should not be dismissed for lack of prosecution. Pursuant to Rule 78 of the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure, the court finds that this matter is appropriate for submission without oral argument. The
Order to Show Cause will stand submitted upon the filing of plaintiff’s response. Failure to respond to
this Order may result in the imposition of sanctions, including but not limited to dismissal of the
complaint.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
