UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS SAN ANTONIO DIVISION MALIBU MEDIA, LLC, § SA-19-CV-00623-DAE § Plaintiff, § § v. § § JOHN DOE infringer using, § IP Address, § § Defendant. § ORDER ADMINISTRATIVELY CLOSING CASE In light of Magistrate Judge Bemporad's Order granting an extension of time to effectuate service (Dkt. # 9), this Court also finds that an administrative closure of the case is appropriate. An administrative closure postpones the proceedings in a case, much like the effect of a stay. See S. La. Cement, Inc. v. Van Aalst Bulk Handling, B.V., 383 F.3d 297, 301 (5th Cir. 2004); Mire v. Full Spectrum Lending, Inc., 389 F.3d 163, 167 (5th Cir. 2014). A case that has been administratively closed "still exists on the docket. . . and may be reopened upon request of the parties or on the court's own motion." Mire, 389 F.3d at 167. The Clerk's office is DIRECTED to ADMINISTRATIVELY CLOSE this case pending further order of the Court. The case may be reopened upon request of any party or on the Court's own motion. IT IS SO ORDERED. SIGNED on September 9, 2019. _____________________________________ David Alan Ezra Senior United States Distict Judge 2
