Failure to do so may result in the dismissal of this action. See FED. R. CIV. P. 41(b) (action may be dismissed for want of prosecution or failure to comply with court order); Larson v. Scott, 157 F.3d 1030, 1031 (5th Cir. 1998) (district court has authority to dismiss case for want of prosecution or failure to comply with court order). SIGNED on July 2, 2024.
