On August 2, 2013, Plaintiff, appearing through counsel, filed this action appealing her denial
of social security benefits. ECF No. 1. On December 11, 2013, Defendant filed an answer and copy of
the hearing transcript. ECF Nos. 13-14. Plaintiff’s brief in support of her appeal was due by January
13, 2014. See Local Civil Rule 83.VII.04 (D.S.C.); see also ECF No. 13. Plaintiff sought and received
two extensions of time to file her brief. See ECF Nos. 16, 17, 19, 20. With the most recent extension,
Plaintiff’s brief was due on February 27, 2014. ECF No. 20.
To date, Plaintiff has not filed her brief. Accordingly, it appears to the court that Plaintiff may
wish to abandon this action. If Plaintiff wishes to pursue her appeal, she is ordered to file a brief in
support of her appeal no later than March 18, 2014. Plaintiff is advised that if she fails to comply
with this deadline, this matter will be recommended for dismissal with prejudice for failure to
prosecute. See Davis v. Williams, 588 F.2d 69, 70 (4th Cir. 1978); Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b).
