FEDERAL NATIONAL MORTGAGE ASSOCIATION; ET AL
PROCEEDINGS: MINUTE ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE RE FAILURE TO PROSECUTE (IN CHAMBERS)
VIRGINIA A. PHILLIPS, U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE
On November 3, 2014, Cross-Claimant and Counter-Claimant, Federal National Mortgage Association ("Fannie Mae") filed a notice of dismissal as to Counter-Defendants, Edward R. Seidner, Joyce Seidner ("Seidners"), and James W. Redfern, Trustee of the 2002 James W. Redfern Revocable Trust ("Redfern"), because the parties had reached a settlement agreement. (Doc. No. 260 ("Notice").) That Notice, however, did not dismiss the Seidners' and Redfern's Counterclaim against Fannie Mae. (Doc. No. 142.) No action has been taken on their Counterclaim since Fannie Mae filed its Answer on February 4, 2014. (Doc. No. 161.)
The Seidners and Redfern are therefore ORDERED to show cause, in writing, no later than January 19, 2015, why the Court should not dismiss their Counterclaim against Fannie Mae. The parties may vacate this Order by filing a notice of voluntary dismissal.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
