Being fully advised of the premises, the Court hereby ORDERS Plaintiffs to SHOW CAUSE on or before February 11, 2011, why the Court should not construe their failure to timely respond to Defendants' dismissal motion as an admission of its merits and grant the relief sought accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
