More than 120 days have passed and Defendant has not filed a copy of the administrative record or otherwise responded to the service of the complaint.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Within fourteen days from the date of service of this order, Defendant shall file and serve a copy of the administrative record;
2. Failure to respond to this order could result in the imposition of sanctions, up to an including an entry of default; and
3. Because Defendant has not yet appeared in this action, the Clerk of the Court is directed to serve a copy of this order on those parties listed in Plaintiff's proof of service (see ECF No. 8).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
