ENTRY OF DEFAULT
[ECF No. 25]
Plaintiff Robert C. Williams is appearing pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action

Currently before the Court is Plaintiff’s motion for entry of default, filed January 5, 2018.
On December 15, 2017, the Court issued an order for Plaintiff to show cause why entry of
default should not be entered against Defendants Gerardo Alcala and Stephen Garza. On December

2017, the Court vacated the December 15, 2017 order to show cause. Accordingly, because
Defendants have answered the complaint, Plaintiff’s motion for entry of default is denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
