IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
SANDRA BELLE RIOUX,
THOMAS GREENE and JOSEPH
STEPANSKY, JOSHUA ALFER,
BRIAN MORRIS, and unknown
AND NOW, this 23rd day of February, 2017, upon due consideration of defendants'
motion for sanctions and the record as developed to date, IT IS ORDERED that  defendants'
motion for sanctions be, and the same hereby is, granted in part as follows: this action is
dismissed for failure to prosecute in a timely manner. A balancing of all relevant factors
identified in Poulis v. State farm Fire and Casualty Co., 747 F.2d 863 (3d Cir. 1984), leads
inescapably to the determination that such relief is warranted. Defendants' request for monetary
costs in addition to the sanction of dismissal is denied.
