The Court, on its own motion, hereby ORDERS plaintiff’s counsel, to show cause in writing no

later than August 14, 2013, why this action should not be dismissed for lack of prosecution. As an
alternative to a written response by plaintiff, the Court will consider the filing of one of the
following, as an appropriate response to this OSC, on or before the above date:

X Answer by the Defendants or Plaintiff's request for entry of default.
X

Notice of Voluntary Dismissal (FRCivP 41)

Absent a showing of good cause, an action shall be dismissed if the summons and
complaint have not been served upon all defendants within 120 days after the filing of the
complaint. Fed. R. Civ. P. 4 (m). The Court may dismiss the action prior to the expiration of
such time, however, if plaintiffs have not diligently prosecuted the action.


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, plaintiffs 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 the Court.
Local Rule 8.3.

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 plaintiffs is due.
