IN CHAMBERS - Order To Show Cause Re: Dismissal for Lack of Prosecution

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. Generally, defendant must answer the
complaint within 21days after service (60 days if the defendant is the United States.)

In the present case, it appears that one or more of these time periods has not been met. Accordingly, the court, on its own
motion, orders plaintiff(s) to show cause in writing on or before June 18, 2013 why this action should not be dismissed
for lack of prosecution. As an alternative to a written response by plaintiff(s), the Court will consider the filing of one of
the following, as an appropriate response to this Order To Show Cause, on or before the above date, as evidence that the
matter is being prosecuted diligently:

Proof(s) of service of summons and complaint on the defendant(s):

______
______ An answer by the following defendant(s):
______
____
__X __

In cases removed from State Court, responsive pleadings filed by all defendants;
Plaintiff's application for entry of default pursuant to Rule 55a of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure;
Plaintiff's request that the clerk enter default judgment or plaintiff's application for entry of default judgment
pursuant to Rule 55b of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

It is plaintiff's responsibility to respond promptly to all Orders and to prosecute the action diligently, including filing
proofs of service and stipulations extending time to respond. If necessary, plaintiff(s) must also pursue Rule 55 remedies
promptly upon the default of any defendant. All stipulations affecting the progress of the case must be approved by this
Court. (Local Rules 7-1 and 7-2).

No oral argument of this matter will be heard unless ordered by the Court. The Order will stand submitted upon the filing
of a responsive pleading or motion on or before the date upon which a response by plaintiff(s) is due. This action will be
dismissed if the above-mentioned document(s) are not filed by the date indicated above.
