UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN

ELECTRICAL CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
BOARD, and ROBERT RAYBURN,

Plaintiffs,

v.

Case No. 12-CV-01058

ELECTRICAL SOLUTIONS OF WISCONSIN, LLC,

Defendant.

MEMORANDUM

Civil Local Rule 41(b) (E.D. Wis. 2010) states that

[i]n all cases in which a defendant has failed to file an answer or otherwise
defend within 6 months from the filing of the complaint and the plaintiff has
not moved for a default judgment, the Court may on its own motion, after 20
days’ notice to the attorney of record for the plaintiff, or to the plaintiff if pro
se, enter an order dismissing the action for lack of prosecution. Such
dismissal must be without prejudice.

This case was filed on October 16, 2012. Defendant was served on November 1,

2012, as evidenced by a return of service filed with the court on November 6, 2012. Six

months have expired since the filing of the complaint yet defendant has not answered and

plaintiffs have not moved for default judgment. Therefore, plaintiffs are put on notice that

the court on its own motion shall dismiss this case without prejudice after twenty days from

the date of this memorandum unless plaintiffs take sufficient action to prosecute this case.

Dated at Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this 4th day of June 2013.
