United States District Court, D. South Carolina
November 19, 2014
Joanne Coleman, o/b/o B.G., Plaintiff,
Carolyn W. Colvin, Acting Commissioner of Social Security Administration, Defendant.
KAYMANI D. WEST, Magistrate Judge.
On June 4, 2014, Plaintiff, appearing through counsel, filed this action appealing a denial of social security benefits. Defendant filed an answer and copy of the administrative record on October 9, 2014. ECF Nos. 5, 6. Plaintiff's brief in support of her appeal was due by November 13, 2014. See Local Rule 83.VII.04 (D.S.C.); see also ECF No. 5. To date, however, Plaintiff has not filed her brief, nor has counsel communicated with the court regarding extension of the deadline.
Accordingly, it appears to the court that Plaintiff may wish to abandon this action. If Plaintiff wishes to pursue her appeal, she is ordered too file a brief in support of her appeal no later than December 3, 2014. Plaintiff is advised that if she fails too comply with this deadline, the undersigned may recommend that this matter be dismissed with prejudice for failure to prosecute. See Davis v. Williams, 588 F.2d 69, 70 (4th Cir. 1978); Fed.R.Civ.P. 41(b).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
