UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. CV 20-11156-CJC (JPR)
Date: June 7, 2021
Title: Terri Mizutani v. Andrew Saul
DOCKET ENTRY: Order to Show Cause
HON. JEAN P. ROSENBLUTH, U.S. MAGISTRATE JUDGE
ATTORNEYS PRESENT FOR PLAINTIFF:
ATTORNEYS PRESENT FOR DEFENDANT:
PROCEEDINGS: (IN CHAMBERS)
On December 9, 2020, Plaintiff filed the Complaint in this Social Security action.
On January 4, 2021, the Court issued a case-management order, requiring Plaintiff to
properly and timely serve the summons and Complaint on the Commissioner and file
proof of service. Plaintiff filed a proof of service on January 15.
The time for Defendant to answer the Complaint has now passed, and he has not
challenged service in any way or otherwise responded to the Complaint. See Fed. R.
Civ. P. 12(a)(2), (b). Any such objection may therefore be waived. See Fed. R. Civ. P.
12(h). But nor has Plaintiff moved for entry of default. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 55(a).
Accordingly, Plaintiff must move for entry of default within 10 days of the date
of this order or show cause in writing why this action should not be dismissed for failure
to prosecute. If she does neither, the action will likely be dismissed. Within 30 days of
any entry of default, Plaintiff must move for default judgment or, again, this action will
likely be dismissed for failure to prosecute.
