ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE RE: DISMISSAL FOR LACK OF PROSECUTION
The parties are ORDERED to show cause why this case should not be dismissed, for lack of prosecution. Link v. Wabash R. Co., 370 U.S. 626 (1962) (court has inherent power to dismiss for lack of prosecution on its own motion). In this matter:
: Defendants did not answer the complaint, yet Plaintiffs have failed to request entry of default, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 55(a). The parties can satisfy this order by seeking entry of default, filing an answer to the complaint or by dismissing the complaint.
The Court is aware that the parties are considering settlement of the matter; however further action is required at this time.
The parties must respond to this order within 20 days. Failure to respond to this OSC will be deemed consent to the dismissal of the action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
