STATUS REPORT

Pursuant to the Court's Order of February 1, 2012 (Dkt. # 14), Plaintiffs hereby file this Status

Report. 3

Plaintiffs have recently engaged new counsel. Yesterday, February 13, 2012, Plaintiffs filed 4 a Substitution of Counsel, substituting McCarthy, Johnson & Miller Law Corporation as their new 5 counsel of record. Plaintiffs' new attorneys are still reviewing the files and becoming familiar with 6 the facts, procedural history and prior developments in the case. 7 Contrary to the assumption of Plaintiffs' prior counsel, Plaintiffs' new counsel have determined that Defendant Peter Salvatore Vassallo d/b/a International Tile & Stone has no attorney. Rather, for 9 a time, said Defendant was being represented informally by a non-attorney friend. Now, it is clear that Defendant is representing himself. 11

According to Plaintiffs' prior Status Report (Dkt. #13), the parties were negotiating terms of settlement in December 2011. Plaintiffs' new counsel has been in contact with Defendant to discuss 13 the status of the proposed settlement agreement. It now appears that there are a number of issues in 14 dispute.

Plaintiffs' new lawyers need some additional time to review the issues related to this matter and to negotiate terms of settlement. If the parties fail to reach agreement on a settlement agreement 17 and stipulation for entry of judgment, Plaintiffs will file a motion for default judgment by no later than 30 days from the date of this Status Report. 19

Respectfully submitted, McCARTHY JOHNSON & MILLER Dated: February 14, 2012 By: /s/ Diane Sidd-Champion DIANE SIDD-CHAMPION

Plaintiff shall file an updated status report or default judgment motion by March 15, 2012.

IT IS SO ORDERED
