SCULLIN, Senior Judge
On September 27, 2013, the Court heard oral argument in support of, and in opposition
to, Defendant's motion to dismiss. At the conclusion of the argument, the Court ordered
Plaintiff's counsel to show cause why the Court should not sanction him. In response to that
order, Plaintiff's counsel filed an affidavit. See Dkt. No. 21. After reviewing that affidavit, the
Court has decided not to sanction Plaintiff's counsel. However, the Court reprimands Plaintiff's
counsel for his failure properly to evaluate the legal bases for the claims he advanced before the
Court and advises Plaintiff's counsel that it will not countenance such conduct in the future.
Accordingly, the Court hereby
ORDERS that sanctions shall not be imposed on Plaintiff's counsel in this matter; and the
ORDERS that, for the reasons set forth in the Court's October 7, 2013 MemorandumDecision and Order, the Clerk of the Court shall enter judgment in favor of Defendant and close
IT IS SO ORDERED.
