MORTGAGE TREE LENDING, INC., ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dennis L. Beck United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER REQUIRING PLAINTIFF TO SUBMIT SECOND STATUS REPORT
On December 9, 2008, the Court granted Plaintiff Gordon Bowman's motion for leave to take class discovery. He was ordered to file a status report by March 31, 2009.
On March 31, 2009, Plaintiff filed his status report, which explained that he attempted to serve subpoenas on three individuals whom he believed were former officers, executives or employees of Defendant Mortgage Tree Lending, Inc., which is now in default.*fn1 Plaintiff received one objection to the subpoenas on the basis that Defendant had filed for bankruptcy protection on February 4, 2009.
Plaintiff is ORDERED to file a second status report no later than July 15, 2009. Plaintiff is warned that continued failure to effectuate class discovery and name a viable defendant may lead to an order to show cause why this action should not be dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
