On March 4, 2011, plaintiff filed a notice that defendant Dr. Evans is deceased.

Within thirty days from the date of this order, the parties shall notify the court if they have objection to the dismissal of defendant Dr. Evans from this action.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that any party who objects to the dismissal of defendant Dr. Evans, deceased, shall file said objection within thirty days from the date of this order. Failure to object will result in the dismissal of defendant Evans.
