ORDER CONTINUING STATUS
Plaintiff states in his Status Report filed on March 11, 2012, that "Plaintiff and Defendants . . . are currently in settlement negotiations and a draft settlement agreement has been sent to Counsel." (ECF No. 14, 2:18-20.) However, Defendants have not yet appeared in this action, and Plaintiff does not indicate what steps he will take to prosecute this action if a settlement is not reached.
In the event a settlement is not reached, Plaintiff shall take the steps necessary to prosecute this action as a default matter. No later than April 30, 2012, Plaintiff shall either file whatever documents are required to prosecute this case as a default matter or show cause in a filing why the action should not be dismissed for failure of prosecution.
Further, the status conference scheduled for hearing on March 26, 2012, is continued to commence at 9:00 a.m. on July 9, 2012. A status report shall be filed fourteen (14) days prior to the status conference in which Plaintiff is required to explain the status of the default proceedings.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
