UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT

CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA





Case No. 2:13-cv-4430-ODW(JEMx)

ORDER DISMISSING CASE


v.


OPERATING ENGINEERS LOCAL 501
SECURITY FUND et al,




ABLE ENGINEERING SERVICES,
et al.,




Defendant

Plaintiffs,







On July 22, 2013, the Court ordered Plaintiffs to show cause why the case
should not be dismissed for lack of prosecution. Defendant was served on June 28,
2013, and its answer to the Complaint was due on July 19, 2013. But instead of filing
a request for entry of default, Plaintiffs entered into a stipulation with Defendant under
Local Rule 8-3, to extend the time for Defendant to answer. This is an inappropriate
response to the OSC and exemplifies Plaintiffs’ lack of diligence in this matter.
Therefore, the Court hereby DISMISSES this case for lack of prosecution.


IT IS SO ORDERED.
July 30, 2013
