STATUS (PRETRIAL SCHEDULING) ORDER
The status (pretrial scheduling) conference scheduled for January 18, 2011, is vacated since the parties' Joint Status Report filed on January 4, 2011 ("JSR") indicates that the following Order should issue.
SERVICE, JOINDER OF ADDITIONAL PARTIES, AMENDMENT
Plaintiff states in the JSR, that he "will file a Motion for Leave to File an Amended Complaint adding defendants April Realty, Inc. and Ernesto Garcia" by January 7, 2011. (ECF No. 1:23-24, 2:11-12.)
