IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
April 29, 2007
JEFF SCOTT AS SPECIAL ADMINISTRATOR OF THE ESTATE OF DONALD SCOTT, JESSIE TIPTON, AND KIMBERLY HUBBARD, PLAINTIFFS,
MERCK & CO., INC., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
Pending before the Court is Defendant Merck & Co's April 10, 2007 motion to stay all proceedings (Doc. 4). Specifically, Merck moves the Court to stay all proceedings in this action pending its likely transfer to In re VIOXX Prods. Litig., MDL No. 1657. As of this date, Plaintiffs have not responded to the motion. The Court considers the failure to respond an admission of the merits of the motion.*fn1 Thus, the Court STAYS this matter pending its transfer to the MDL.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
David R. Herndon United States District Judge
