ORDER VACATING HEARING ON ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
EDWARD M. CHEN, District Judge.
Previously, the Court issued an order to show cause ("OSC") and set a hearing on the OSC for December 19, 2013. A response to the OSC was to be filed by December 5, 2013. Neither Respondent filed a response to the OSC. However, on December 16, 2013, each Respondent filed a motion, asserting that dismissal of the cases is warranted based on insufficient service of process. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 12(b)(5).
In light of the motions to dismiss, the Court hereby VACATES the December 19 hearing on the OSC. The Court shall hear Respondents' motions to dismiss, as well as the hearing on the OSC on January 23, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. Respondent may file a substantive response to the OSC no later than January 9, 2013. Briefing on Respondents' motion to dismiss shall be pursuant to local rules.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
