ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE RE DISMISSAL FOR LACK OF PROSECUTION
Jacqueline Chooljian, United States Magistrate Judge
On November 5, 2013, this Court issued a Case Management Order which directed plaintiff, who is proceeding pro se, to file a motion for summary judgment or remand within thirty (30) days of service of defendant's Answer. On October 14, 2014, defendant filed and served plaintiff by mail with defendant's Answer. Accordingly, plaintiffs motion for summary judgment or remand was due on November 17, 2014.
To date, plaintiff has failed to file a motion for summary judgment or remand as required by the Case Management Order. Nor has plaintiff filed a request for an extension of time to file such motion.
The Court, on its own motion, hereby orders plaintiff to show cause in writing no later than January 5, 2015, why this action should not be dismissed for lack of prosecution and/or based upon plaintiffs failure to comply with the Case Management Order. If plaintiff wishes to proceed with this action, she must also file by no later than January 5, 2015, a motion for summary judgment or remand or a request for an extension of time to do so which is supported by good cause.
Plaintiff is cautioned that failure to comply with this order and to file the above-referenced documents by January 5, 2015, will result in the dismissal of this action based on plaintiff's failure to comply with the court's order and/or failure to prosecute this action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
