This action is therefore stayed 20 as against these defendants. See 11 U.S.C. § 362. Pursuant to the court’s order, the bankruptcy 21 trustee has filed a statement of updated information regarding the status of the other named 22 defendants in this action. Defendants Betsy and Sarah Wannakuwatte have both filed bankruptcy 23 petitions and the automatic stay provision applies to the pending action against these defendants. 24 The trustee indicates that the remaining named defendants appear to be related entities and/or 25 alter egos of IMG or the Wannakuwattes and that there is a significant likelihood that the 26 remaining named defendants will be consolidated into one or more of the existing bankruptcy 27 cases. Under these circumstances, staying the entire civil action at this time is appropriate. 28 ///// 1 1 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: 2 1. The status conference currently set for September 24, 2014 before the undersigned is 3 vacated. 4 2. This action is stayed. 5 3.
