H-08-1879 MEMORANDUM AND ORDER Plaintiff Financial Federal Credit Inc., filed a motion for summary judgment against defendants Dale Milo Baker and Barbara Darlene Baker. (Docket Entry No. 14). On November 4, 2008, these defendants filed for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 7 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court of the Western District of Oklahoma, Cause Number 08-14980.

Given the bankruptcy stay as to three of the four defendants, plaintiff must file a statement no later than December 15, 2008 showing cause why this case should not be administratively closed during the bankruptcy stay or, alternatively, what orders may be appropriate.
