Choudhry et al v. USA
RULING (see attached) granting 19 Defendant's Motion to Dismiss for Failure to Prosecute. The Clerk is directed to close the file. Signed by Judge Charles S. Haight, Jr. on March 9, 2012. (Dorais, L.)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF CONNECTICUT
CHOUDRY PETROLEUM, and
ABDULLAH ENTERPRISE, LLC,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
RULING ON MOTION TO DISMISS FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
The motion of Defendant, the United States of America, to dismiss this action on the basis
of Plaintiffs’ failure to prosecute is GRANTED. Specifically, Plaintiffs have failed to make any
response with respect to the answers to interrogatories and production of documents, which Judge
Dorsey directed them to make in his order filed on December 7, 2011 [Doc. No. 17]. Plaintiffs had
ten days within the date of that order to comply and have failed to do so. Counsel for the United
States further states that Plaintiffs’ counsel does not respond to attempts to communicate with him.
This failure to prosecute, on several levels, entirely justifies, indeed it requires, dismissal of this
action with prejudice for failure to prosecute. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b). The Clerk is directed to
close the file.
It is SO ORDERED.
Dated: New Haven, Connecticut
