Buena Vista Distribution Co., 748 F. 2d 602, 604 (11th Cir. 1984), the defendant is GRANTED leave until February 4, 2010 to retain new counsel on its behalf. If counsel does not appear on the defendant's behalf, default will be entered against Biogistics, Inc. for failure to defend. DONE and ORDERED on this 21st day of January, 2010. /s/ Callie V. S.
