Therefore, on January 28, 2013, the undersigned ordered respondent's counsel to show cause why sanctions should not be imposed for his failure to file a responsive pleading. Dckt. No. 270.
On February 11, 2013, respondent's counsel filed a response to the order to show cause. Dckt. No. 272. Therein, respondent's counsel takes full responsibility for the failure, apologizes to the court, and indicates that the failure to timely file a response was due to a calendaring error. Id. Respondent's counsel also assures the court that he will implemented corrective measures to ensure that similar calendaring errors do not occur in the future. Id. In light of those representations, the January 28, 2013 order to show cause is discharged. No sanctions will be imposed.
