either a status report detailing the discovery remaining in dispute or a notice withdrawing the motion
to compel. [DE-23]. Defendant's status report indicates that Plaintiff served discovery responses
after the motion to compel was filed, but that the responses were incomplete and that Plaintiff stated
she would be producing additional information. [DE-24]

pending the court's ruling on the motion to extend the discovery period, which ended June 15,2014,
discovery has been essentially at a standstill. !d.

responses thereto, it is hereby ordered as follows:
