RONALD MAURO, PLAINTIFF,
FRANCES KAYIRA, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge
Now before the Court are Defendant Kayira's April 27, 2007 motion to dismiss (Doc. 17) and October 12, 2007 motion for summary judgment (Doc. 21). Along with both dispositive motions, Kayira filed the required notices pursuant to Lewis v. Faulner, 689 F.2d 100 (7th Cir. 1982) and Bryant v. Madigan, 84 F.3d 246 (7th Cir. 1986) informing Mauro that the failure to respond to the motions may result in the Court granting the motions and dismissing his case with prejudice. (Docs. 19 & 23). As of this date, Mauro has not responded to either motion. Because Mauro is proceeding pro se, the Court ALLOWS Mauro up to and including January 23, 2008 to respond to both of Kayira's motions.*fn1 Pursuant to Local Rule 7.1(c) and the cases cited above, the Court ADVISES Mauro that the failure to respond properly may result in the Court granting the motions and dismissing his case with prejudice.*fn2
IT IS SO ORDERED.
