The Court, on its own motion, hereby orders plaintiff to show cause in writing no later May 9, 2011, why this action should not be dismissed for lack of prosecution. The Court notes in this regard, that absent a showing of good cause, an action shall be dismissed if the summons and complaint have not been served within 120 days after the filing of the complaint.
R. Civ. P. 4(m). An action may be dismissed prior to such time if plaintiff has not diligently prosecuted the action. No oral argument will be heard unless otherwise ordered by the Court. The Order to Show Cause will stand submitted upon the filing of an appropriate response.
Counsel is advised that the Court will consider the filing of responsive pleadings by defendants to the complaint and/or proofs of service (indicating proper service in full compliance with the federal rules) as to defendants, on or before the date upon which the response is due, as a satisfactory response to the Order to Show Cause.
