IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
AUSTIN EDWARD LIGHTFEATHER,
On June 8, 2022, the Court entered an order which required the parties to attend
a pretrial conference on January 18, 2023. (Filing No. 26). Pursuant to that order,
defense counsel had the primary responsibility for drafting the proposed Order on Final
Pretrial Conference, with additions and/or proposed deletions to be provided by the
plaintiff. Defense counsel was ordered to then submit the Proposed Order on Final
Pretrial Conference to the court by no later than January 11, 2023. The court did not
receive a proposed order.
The Final Pretrial Conference was scheduled to be held telephonically at 11:00
a.m. yesterday. Plaintiff is currently incarcerated and under such circumstances,
Defense counsel was ordered to “contact the plaintiff’s institution in advance and
arrange to initiate and place the conference call.” (Filing No. 26, at CM/ECF p. 2).
The court was not given calling instructions in advance of the scheduled pretrial
conference, so the court waited for a phone call from the parties. No one called.
Defendant has not complied with the court’s order, and Defendant has not
explained the failure to comply with the court’s order, (Filing No. 26).
IT IS ORDERED that Defendant is given until February 8, 2023 to show cause
why the court should not enter a default against Defendant. The failure to timely
comply with this order may result in an entry of default without further notice.
January 19, 2023
