PRESENT: HONORABLE PAUL L. ABRAMS, U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE.
On October 20, 2014, plaintiffs Trotter
and Perez sought an extension of time to file a Second Amended Complaint, as
required by the Court's Order dismissing the First Amended Complaint with leave
to amend. The Court granted that request, and the Second Amended Complaint was
due no later than December 5, 2014. When they failed to timely file a Second
Amended Complaint, the Court issued a order to show cause why this action
should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute and follow court orders. On
December 15, 2014, plaintiffs Trotter and Perez filed another request for an
extension of time, this time so they can retain an attorney to handle their
case. Plaintiffs' request for additional time was granted, but only until
January 6, 2015, as that was the fifth request for additional time to amend the
pleadings in this action, and indicated that plaintiffs do not intend to
diligently prosecute this action. As of the date of this Order, plaintiffs have
not filed a Second Amended Complaint.
Accordingly, plaintiffs are ordered to show cause, no later than January 21, 2015, why this action should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute and follow court orders. The filing of a Second Amended Complaint on or before January 21, 2015, shall be deemed compliance with this order to show cause. Plaintiffs are advised that the failure to comply with this Order will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed.
