On October 31, 2008, the Court issued an Order requiring defendant T-Shirt Wholesale Outlet ("Defendant") to file and serve, no later than November 7, 2008, its Certification of Interested Parties as required by Local Rule 7.1-1. (See Docket No. 13.) The Court warned that failure to comply with the Order could result in the imposition of sanctions. On November 14, 2008, the Court issued an Order to Show Cause ("OSC") why sanctions should not be imposed for Defendant's failure to comply with the October 31, 2008 Order. (See Docket No. 17.) The OSC warned that failure to respond by November 24, 2008 could result in sanctions. Defendant never responded, and never filed its Certification of Interested Parties.
