AND NOW, this 31st day of October, 2007, upon consideration of plaintiff's motion for preliminary and permanent injunction (Doc. 2), and of plaintiff's motion for substitution of parties (Doc. 6), averring that defendant Howard H. Bosley ("Howard") died on October 3, 2007 and seeking to substitute David R. Bosley, Sr. ("David") and Pamela A. Bosley ("Pamela") as defendants in the above-captioned action, and it appearing that "[i]f a party dies and the claim is not thereby extinguished, the court may order substitution of the proper parties," see FED. R. CIV. P. 25(a)(1); Boggs v. Dravo Corp., 532 F.2d 897, 900-01 (3d Cir. 1976), and that "proper parties" includes the deceased party's legal representative or "a distributee of an unprobated distributed estate," see Indyk v.

2. The briefing schedule on plaintiff's motion for preliminary and permanent injunction (Doc. 2) is STAYED pending identification of the appropriate defendant or defendants in the above-captioned action.
