R. 160(b) ("A failure to file dispositional papers on the date prescribed by the Court may be grounds for sanctions.").
Further, the Status Conference scheduled for hearing on November 26, 2012, is continued to commence at 9:00 a.m. on January 14, 2013, in the event no dispositional document is filed, or if this action is not otherwise dismissed.*fn1 A joint status report shall be filed fourteen (14) days prior to the status conference.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
