United States District Court, N.D. California
October 14, 2005.
JUNE JONES, Plaintiff,
CHEVRON TEXACO STANDARD OIL COMPANY, Defendant.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: JEFFREY WHITE, District Judge
ORDER GRANTING SUMMARY JUDGMENT
On August 25, 2005, Defendant Chevron Texaco Standard Oil
Company ("Defendant") filed and served a motion for summary
judgment and set a hearing for November 4, 2005 at 9:00 a.m. On
August 26, 2005, this Court issued an order informing Plaintiff
that she had an obligation to file an opposition to Defendant's
motion and that failure to do so may result in the dismissal of
this case. Plaintiff was informed that a motion for summary
judgment under Rule 56 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
would, if granted, end Plaintiff's case. See Rand v. Rowland
154 F.3d 952, 953-54 (9th Cir. 1998) (en banc). The Court allowed
Jones up until September 30, 2005, to file an opposition to
Defendant's motion for summary judgment and was told that if no
opposition is filed, summary judgment may be granted and
Plaintiff's case will be dismissed. The Court has received no opposition to Defendant's motion for
summary judgment. Further, the Court has reviewed the motion and
hereby finds that there is no genuine issue as to any material
fact and that Defendant is entitled to judgment as a matter of
law. Therefore, the Court hereby GRANTS Defendant's motion for
summary judgment. The hearing date of November 4, 2005 at 9:00
a.m. is HEREBY VACATED. The action is dismissed with prejudice.
Judgment shall be entered in favor of Defendant and against
IT IS SO ORDERED.
