2021. [ECF No. 15]. Defendants have not responded, and Plaintiff has taken no action in this

default judgment or take some other action by September 3, 2021 [ECF No. 16]. The Court
stated that failure to move for a default judgment might result in dismissal of this action for
failure to prosecute. Now a month later, Plaintiff has not filed a motion for default judgment,
requested an extension of time to file such a motion, or taken any other action to prosecute this
The Court has considered the factors required by Second Circuit case law for dismissal
pursuant to Rule 41(b), and the Court finds that dismissal is warranted. See Baptiste v. Sommers,

dismissed, without prejudice, for failure to prosecute. Plaintiff may move to reinstate the case on
or before October 8, 2021, otherwise the dismissal shall be with prejudice.
