STATUS ORDER AND ORDER CONTINUING STATUS (PRETRIAL SCHEDULING) CONFERENCE
A status conference was scheduled in this case on February 1, 2010; however, that status conference was submitted in light of the status of this case. Two defendants filed a status report in connection with the February 1, 2010 status conference, in which they state Plaintiff made no attempt to contact their counsel about the content of a joint status report. Plaintiff failed to file a timely status report, and has not yet served two defendants; the service issue will be addressed in a separate order. The two defendants submitting a joint status report indicate this case should not yet be fully scheduled since the sufficiency of Plaintiff's complaint will be challenged in a dismissal motion. Therefore, the following status order issues, and a further status hearing is scheduled to commence at 9:00 a.m. on June 14, 2010, and a joint status report shall be filed fourteen days before the status hearing.
DISMISSAL OF DOE DEFENDANTS
Since Plaintiff has not justified Doe defendants remaining in this action, Does 1 through 20 are dismissed. See Order Setting Status (Pretrial Scheduling) Conference filed August 25, 2009, at 2 n.2 (indicating that if justification for "Doe" defendant allegations not provided Doe defendants would be dismissed).
SERVICE, JOINDER OF ADDITIONAL PARTIES, AMENDMENT
No further service or joinder of parties is permitted, except with leave of Court, good cause having been shown.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
