MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on its own initiative for purposes of case management. Specifically, the Court is concerned with Plaintiff Michael Allison's failure to respond to Defendant Tory Garrard's Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. 52).
Pursuant to Local Rule 7.1(c), Allison's response was due thirty days after said motion was served, but thirty days have passed and Allison has not responded. The Court may, in its discretion, construe a party's failure to file a timely response as an admission of the merits of the motion. S.D. Ill. L. R. 7.1(c).
Being fully advised of the premises, the Court hereby ORDERS Allison to SHOW CAUSE on or before July 23, 2010, why the Court should not construe his failure to timely respond to Garrard's summary judgment motion as an admission of its merits and enter judgment accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
