DECISION and ORDER
DAVID N. HURD, District Judge.
Appellant Ridge View Farm LLC filed a Notice of Appeal on December 24, 2012. The Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of New York issued a Certification of Compliance on January 30, 2013. Pleasant Acre Farm, LLC entered a notice that it no longer had an interest in Appellant and therefore would not enter an appearance on the appeal. Appellant's brief was due March 19, 2013. ECF No. 4. Appellees' briefs were due twenty days thereafter. The appeal was returnable on May 24, 2013, on submission without oral argument.
Appellant failed to file a brief. Consequently, appellees' briefs never became due. Appellant has not requested an extension of time to file a brief, or provided any reason why a brief was not filed. Therefore, the appeal will be dismissed for failure to prosecute. Balaber-Strauss v. Reichard (In re Tampa Chain Co.) , 835 F.2d 54, 55-56 (2d Cir. 1987).
Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that the above-captioned appeal is DISMISSED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
