ORDER DISMISSING CLAIMS WITHOUT PREJUDICE
Plaintiffs Uluama Niutupuivaha and Luisa Niutupuivaha
(“Plaintiffs”) filed their First Amended Complaint for Damages
(“First Amended Complaint”) on September 18, 2013.
On February 3, 2014, this Court issued an Order to Show
Cause (“the OSC”), noting that there was no indication in the
record that Plaintiffs served the First Amended Complaint on the
only defendants remaining in this action - Defendants Countrywide
Home Loans, Inc., Bank of America, and Chase Bank (collectively
“the Remaining Defendants”).
[Dkt. no. 47.]
therefore ordered Plaintiffs to file a statement showing good
cause why this Court should not dismiss Plaintiffs’ claims
against the Remaining Defendants for failure to serve the First
Amended Complaint on the Remaining Defendants within 120 days
after filing, as required by Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(m).
ordered Plaintiffs to file their response to the OSC by
February 10, 2014, and this Court cautioned Plaintiffs that, if
they failed to respond to the OSC, this Court would dismiss all
of Plaintiffs’ claims against the Remaining Defendants without
prejudice, and this Court would direct the Clerk’s Office to
close this case.
Plaintiffs neither filed proof of service on any of the
Remaining Defendants nor filed a response to the OSC.
to Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(m) and the terms of the OSC, this Court
HEREBY DISMISSES Plaintiffs’ claims against Defendants
Countrywide Home Loans, Inc., Bank of America, and Chase Bank
WITHOUT PREJUDICE for failure to serve.
There being no remaining claims in this action, this
Court DIRECTS the Clerk’s Office to close this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED AT HONOLULU, HAWAII, February 11, 2014.
