ORDER CONTINUING STATUS (PRETRIAL SCHEDULING) CONFERENCE
Plaintiff states in his Status Report filed on July 23, 2012: "Defendants have been served; however, there is a dispute as to proper service on Defendants J S Sukhinder and J S Randhawa Gursharan. Plaintiff has served these Defendants by Waiver of Service. Plaintiff and Defendant, Daljit S. Grover, are finalizing a settlement agreement." (Status Report 2:14-19.) However, no defendant has appeared, and Plaintiff does not indicate in his Status Report what steps he is taking to prosecute this action against the non-settling defendants.
Plaintiff shall take the steps necessary to prosecute this action as a default matter as to Defendants J S Sukhinder and J S Randhawa Gursharan. No later than September 10, 2012, Plaintiff shall either file whatever documents are required to prosecute this case as a default matter against these defendants or show cause in a filing why these defendants should not be dismissed for failure of prosecution.
Further, the status conference scheduled for hearing on August 6, 2012, is continued to commence at 9:00 a.m. on January 28, 2013. 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.
