§§ 12181 et seq. This matter is before the court pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Local Civil Rule

Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m), service of process must be effected on the

the defendant was timely served but has failed to file a responsive pleading in accordance with Rule

default as to the defendant. (ECF No. 11); Fed. R. Civ. P. 55(a). To date, the plaintiff has not taken
any further action in this matter. Therefore, it is hereby
ORDERED that the plaintiff, within fourteen (14) days from the date of this Order, shall file
a properly supported motion for default judgment or otherwise indicate how he would like to
proceed. If the plaintiff fails to file the motion or to take other action to advance this matter, the
court shall recommend that this action be dismissed.
