ORDER DENYING 4 Motion to Dismiss Complaint. Putnam is responsible in part for the Bank's exercise in futility. Local Rule 33.3 directed Putnam to file RICO interrogatories with the complaint identifying which subsection (or subsections) of 18 U.S.C. § 1962 it relied on. M.D. Ga. LR 33.3. Putnam did not file the required RICO interrogatories with the complaint. Three months after filing the complaint and after a reminder by the Court, Putnam filed the interrogatories, but they still fail to identify [w]hether the alleged unlawful conduct is a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1962(a), (b), (c), (d), or a combination thereof. Doc. 10 at 1. Accordingly, Putnam is ORDERED to file a supplement to the interrogatories correcting this omission by May 31, 2017. Also, if Putnam is asserting a 18 U.S.C. § 1962(c) RICO claim, Putnam is ORDERED to provide, also by May 31, 2017, authority to support the position that its bare assertions of the existence of unidentified agents orchestrating the consent orders with the Bank state a plausible claim that a person employed by or associated with [an] enterprise... conduct[ed] or participate[d], directly or indirectly, in the conduct of such enterprise's affairs through a pattern of racketeering activity under 18 U.S.C. § 1962(c). Putnam should also address why the orchestration of two consent orders over several months is sufficient to state a claim for either an open or closed-ended pattern of racketeering activity. The Bank shall provide any contrary authority by June 9, 2017. Ordered by US DISTRICT JUDGE MARC THOMAS TREADWELL on 5/18/2017. (tlh)
