ORDER OF COURT
AND NOW, this 21st day of December, 2007, upon consideration of DEFENDANT CITY OF DUQUESNE POLICE DEPARTMENT'S MOTION TO DISMISS PLAINTIFFS' COMPLAINT and Brief in Support (Document Nos. 3 and 4) and the Court's Text Order of October 2, 2007 which required a response to said Motion on or before October 22, 2007, and the Court's Order to Show Cause of November 28, 2007, which again instructed Plaintiffs to file a brief and response in opposition to the pending Motion to Dismiss and extended the response date to on or before December 11, 2007, and with no response having been filed by Plaintiffs and with due consideration and deliberation of the factual and legal arguments advanced in the Brief in Support of Defendant's Motion to Dismiss, each of which the Court finds to have merit and are specifically unrebutted by Plaintiffs,
