Filing 29

ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE: In light of the Joint Stipulation to Continue the Trial Date, Pre-Trial Date, Specified Discovery, and the Mediation Completion filed on February 16, 2021 (Docket No. 27) it appears that defense counsel's statement in his De claration filed on February 9, 2021 (Docket No. 25-2) that he will be prepared to try this case on April 20, 2021 was false and misleading. Accordingly, counsel for Defendant is ordered to show cause in writing by February 18, 2021 why he should not be sanctioned in the amount of $1,500.00 and why the Order approving the substitution of counsel filed on February 10, 2021 (Docket No. 26) should not be vacated. No oral argument on this matter will be heard unless otherwise ordered by the Cour t. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 78; Local Rule 7-15.
