MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on Defendant/Cross-Claimant Tory Garrard's Response (Doc. 107) to the Court's Memorandum and Order to Show Cause (Doc. 106) of February 8, 2011.
While the Court is less than impressed with Garrard's explanation for not timely responding to Defendants'/Cross-Defendants' Motion to Dismiss (Doc. 92), the Court believes he is sincere in his apology and that he will not engage in such conduct in the future.
Being fully advised of the premises, the Court DISCHARGES its Memorandum and Order to Show Cause (Doc. 106) and ORDERS that Garrard file his response to Defendants'/Cross-Defendants' dismissal motion no later than February 18, 2011. Further, the Court WARNS Garrard that motions to which he does not timely respond in the future may have their merits deemed admitted. See S.D. Ill. L. R. 7.1(c), (g).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
