ORDER DISMISSING COMPLAINT WITHOUT PREJUDICE
On October 9, 2012, Plaintiffs Brent J. Small and Lee Ann Small filed their First Amended Complaint (Doc. No. 12) ("FAC") against Defendants Judge John Davis, Judge Paulette Barkley, the Federal National Mortgage Association, and DOES 1 to 10.
Plaintiffs filed a Proof of Service on October 28, 2012 (Doc. No. 11), which did not comply with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 10. The Court notified Plaintiffs of this deficiency (Doc. No. 15) on November 1, 2012.
Since then, Plaintiffs have not filed an amended Proof of Service. On May 2, 2013, the Court issued an Order to Show Cause ("OSC"), by May 13, 2013, why the action should not be dismissed without prejudice for failure to prosecute. (See Doc. No. 16.) Plaintiff failed to respond timely to the OSC. Accordingly, the Court DISMISSES without prejudice Plaintiff's Complaint.
