State law requires that plaintiffs move cases along promptly. The notice you asked about says that the plaintiff has been ordered to show why he/she/it should not be sanctioned for not doing so -- for not filing a proof of service and filing for a default judgment (which can only be requested after you have been served and have not responded within the required time). It is the court's way of pressuring the plaintiff to move the case along.See question
