Case No. 12-cv-776-JPG-SCW

03-04-2014

TRUSTEES OF CENTRAL LABORERS' PENSION, WELFARE & ANNUITY FUNDS, Plaintiff, v. R.B. BUSH CONTRACTING, INC., Defendant.


MEMORANDUM AND

ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE

This matter comes before the Court for case management purposes. On December 4, 2013, Judge William D. Stiehl directed the plaintiff to supplement its motion for default judgment but did not set a deadline for that supplement (Doc. 10). On February 4, 2014, the Court set a deadline of February 28, 2014, for the plaintiff to file its supplement and warned that the Court would deny the motion for default judgment without prejudice if no supplement was filed. The plaintiff has not filed a supplement as ordered. Accordingly, the Court DENIES without prejudice the motion for default judgment (Doc. 9). The Court further ORDERS the plaintiff to SHOW CAUSE on or before March 21, 2014, why the Court should not construe the failure to file a supplement as an intent to abandon this case and why the Court should not dismiss this case for lack of prosecution pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 41(b).

IT IS SO ORDERED.
