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 January 14, 2013, is continued to commence at 9:00 a.m. on May 13, 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.
