MEMORANDUM IN RESPONSE TO ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
This Memorandum is submitted in response to the Court's show cause order dated December 10, 2007. Plaintiffs do intend to prosecute this action. Although the action is subject to dismissal for failure to properly serve the defendant within the time permitted under by FRCP 4(m), Plaintiffs believe that in the event of such a dismissal, the action could be refiled notwithstanding the running of the statute of limitations for a Fair Debt Collection Practices Act claim pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stat.§ 52-592. Plaintiffs had intended to serve the action on the defendant and, if the action were dismissed, to commence a new action. The undersigned had directed one of his staff members to request a summons from the clerk of the court on November 19 and during a recent,
