The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge

MDL No. 2100

ORDER

This matter is before the Court on Defendant Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals Inc.'s ("Bayer HealthCare") motion, pursuant to Case Management Order 12 ("CMO 12"), for an Order dismissing Plaintiffs' claims in the above-captioned matters without prejudice for failure to comply with their Plaintiff Fact Sheet ("PFS") obligations.*fn1 Bayer HealthCare contends that although the Plaintiffs in the above-captioned matters have served PFSs, the PFSs are not substantially complete and are therefore delinquent pursuant to CMO 12.*fn2

Under Section E of CMO 12, Plaintiffs were given 14 days from the date of Defendant's motion, in this case 14 days from October 4, 2010, to file a response either certifying that they served upon Defendants and Defendants received a completed PFS, and attaching appropriate documentation of receipt or an opposition to Defendant's motion.

Only one Plaintiff in the above-captioned member actions timely filed a response to Bayer HealthCare's motion to dismiss pursuant to CMO 12. On October 6, 2010, Plaintiff Angela Susan Torn (Torn, member action number 3:09- cv-10188) filed a response certifying that she had corrected the deficiencies in her PFS and that the necessary documents had been served upon Bayer HealthCare (3:09-cv-10188 Doc. 28) (certifying that Plaintiff completed and signed record release authorizations and federal disclosure statement, the deficiencies that had been identified in Bayer HealthCare's motion to dismiss, and that the same were served on Bayer HealthCare on October 6, 2010).

One additional Plaintiff filed a response stating that she had supplied the Bayer Defendants with an amended PFS that corrected the deficiencies identified in Bayer HealthCare's motion to dismiss on October 28, 2010 (Becerril, member action 3:09-cv-10039 Doc. 39). Although Plaintiff's response is untimely, the Court will refrain from taking the drastic action of dismissing Plaintiff's case.

The Court also notes that as evidence of compliance with CMO 12, Plaintiff's counsel attached the completed un-redacted PFS as an exhibit to the responsive pleading. The Court immediately struck and removed this attachment from the docket as it contained private information -- such as the Plaintiff's complete social security number, address, and date of birth -- in violation of the Court's privacy policy. The Court strongly urges counsel to review the Court's Privacy Policy located at Local Rule 5.1(d) and to avoid violating this policy in the future.

The Plaintiffs in the remaining member actions have failed to file any response to Bayer HealthCare's motion to dismiss pursuant to CMO 12. Because the remaining Plaintiffs have failed to respond, in any way, to Bayer HealthCare's allegations that the submitted PFSs are not substantially complete, the Court finds that the remaining Plaintiffs in the above-captioned member actions have failed to comply with the requirements of CMO 12.

Accordingly, the Court hereby Orders as follows:

1. The motion to dismiss filed in Torn v. Bayer Corp., et al. No. 3:09-cv-10188-DRH-PMF is DENIED as MOOT.

2. The motion to dismiss filed in Becerril v. Bayer HealthCare Pharms., Inc., et al. No. 3:09-cv-10039-DRH-PMF is DENIED as MOOT.

3. The following member actions are dismissed without prejudice for failure to comply with the requirements of CMO 12:

Becerril v. Bayer HealthCare Pharms., Inc., et al. No. 3:09-cv-10039-DRH-PMF

Bennett v. Bayer Corp., et al. No. 3:10-cv-10150-DRH-PMF

Thompson v. Bayer HealthCare Pharms., Inc., et al. No. 3:10-cv-10115-DRH-PMF

Further, the Court reminds Plaintiffs that, pursuant to CMO 12 Section E, unless Plaintiffs serve Defendants with a completed PFS or move to vacate the dismissal without prejudice within 60 days after entry of this Order, the Order will be converted to a Dismissal With Prejudice upon Defendants' motion.
