The Status (Pretrial Scheduling) Order filed February 3, 2009, scheduled a final pretrial conference in this case on December 6, 2010. (ECF No. 16.) That Order prescribed: "The parties shall file a JOINT pretrial statement no later than seven (7) calendar days prior to the final pretrial conference." Id. at 4:12-13. No pretrial statement was filed. Review of the filings in this action reveals the following: The February 3, 2009 Status Order required "Plaintiff [to] file a motion for default judgment against Defendants Ram Nadir and Kashmir Singh by April 2009." Id. at 1:27-28. Plaintiff filed a motion for default judgment against said defendants on February 2, 2009, which was denied without prejudice on March 27, 2009, based upon Plaintiff's
representation at the hearing on said motion that "he would withdraw [the] motion pending further developments in the case." (ECF Nos. 15,
