Order to Show Cause Re Dismissal For Lack Of Prosecution
Absent a showing of good cause, an action must be dismissed without prejudice if the summons
and complaint are not served on a defendant within 90 days after the complaint is filed. Fed. R. Civ. P.
In the present case, it appears that this time period has not been met. Accordingly, the court, on
its own motion, orders plaintiff to show cause in writing on or before December 13, 2017, why
defendants Independent Presenters Network, CJ E and M Corp., and Just for Laughs Theatricals LLC
should not be dismissed for lack of prosecution. Plaintiffs have indicated in the parties joint Rule 26(f)
report that they have reached a tentative agreement with these defendants. (Docket No. 27 at 3.)
Accordingly, Plaintiffs may satisfy their obligations under this Order by dismissing these defendants.
Pursuant to Rule 78 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the court finds that this matter is
appropriate for submission without oral argument. The Order to Show Cause will stand submitted upon
the filing of plaintiff’s response. Failure to respond to this Order may result in the imposition of
sanctions, including but not limited to dismissal of the complaint.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
