MORTGAGECLOSE.COM INC.; EXECUTIVE TRUST SERVICES DBA ETS SERVICES, LLC; AND GMAC MORTGAGE, LLC, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
This matter proceeds before the undersigned magistrate judge because plaintiff Shelley Von Brincken, the only plaintiff in this action, was, until recently, proceeding without counsel. See E. Dist. Local Rule 302(c)(21). Presently pending before the court are: (1) a motion to dismiss plaintiff's First Amended Complaint filed by defendant GMAC Mortgage, LLC (Dkt. No. 20), and (2) a motion to set aside the clerk's entry of default filed by defendant Executive Trust Services, LLC (Dkt. No. 30). Both motions are set for hearing before the undersigned on December 9, 2010. (See Dkt. Nos. 30, 33.)*fn1
