On July 26, 2010, Plaintiff filed a request for default judgment against Defendants. (Doc. 22) He claims that this request is appropriate due to Defendants failure file a responsive pleading. However, the First Amended Complaint has not yet been screened to determine whether it states a cognizable claim. Consequently, the Court has not yet authorized service of the summons and complaint. Therefore, the Defendants' duty to file a responsive pleading has not yet arisen. Based upon the foregoing, the motion for default judgment is DENIED.
