LIMITED STORES, LLC,
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
On March 16, 2017, this Court issued an Order noting that Plaintiff had served the
Complaint upon Defendant, the time for filing an answer had passed, and Plaintiff had not
moved for the entry of default. (Doc. 5). Consequently, the Court ordered Plaintiff to show
cause within 14 days why this action should not be dismissed. (Id.). Plaintiff filed a Response to
the Show Cause Order on March 17, 2017, providing notice that Defendant filed for Chapter 11
protection on January 17, 2017, in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware. (Doc. 6). Plaintiff explains that she filed an adversary proceeding in the Defendant’s
bankruptcy and requests that this matter be held in abeyance until such time as the adversary
proceeding is resolved through the bankruptcy or this action is allowed to resume in this Court.
(Id. at 2).
As a result of Plaintiff’s notice, the Court hereby RECOMMENDS that this case be
ADMINISTRATIVELY CLOSED unless and until Plaintiff notifies this Court that the
bankruptcy court has lifted the automatic stay or concludes the bankruptcy case. See 11 U.S.C.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
