MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on its own initiative for purposes of case management. Specifically, the Court is concerned with Cross-Claimant Tory Garrard's failure to respond to Cross-Defendants' Motion to Dismiss (Doc. 92).
Pursuant to Local Rule 7.1(c), Garrard's response was due thirty (30) days after said motion was served, but thirty days have passed and Garrard 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 Garrard to SHOW
CAUSE on or before February 25, 2011, why the Court should not construe his failure to timely respond to Cross-Defendants' dismissal motion as an admission of its merits and grant the relief sought accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
