IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 5, 2009
ROSA MANDUJANO, PETITIONER,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Anthony W. Ishii Chief United States District Judge
ORDER FOR PETITIONER TO SHOW CAUSE
On December 24, 2008, this Court issued an order that disposed of most of the issues raised by Petitioner in her 28 U.S.C. § 2255 motion and required Petitioner's former attorney to respond. See Court's Criminal Docket Doc. No. 150. On January 12, 2009, Petitioner's former attorney filed his responding declaration. See id. at Doc. No. 151. The Court shortly thereafter ordered the United States to file a response. See id. at Doc. No. 152. On February 2, 2009, the United States filed a response. See id. at Doc. No. 155. In part, the United States indicates that Petitioner has been released. See id. Further, a review of the docket indicates that filings mailed to Petitioner's last known address were returned as undeliverable with a notation, "not here, released." See id. at Doc. No. 154.
Under the local rules, all parties, including those appearing in propria persona, are under a continuing duty to notify the Court of their current address or telephone number. See Local Rules 83-182(f). The failure to follow local rules are grounds for the Court to impose all sanctions that are authorized by statute or Rule or within the inherent power of the Court. See Local Rules 11-110. Since Petitioner has not informed the Court of a change of address and has been released since July 2007, see Court's Docket Doc. No. 155 (United States's Opposition) at pp. 13-14, it appears to the Court that Petitioner is no longer interested in these proceedings. Given the strain on the Court's docket and the failure of Plaintiff to notify the Court of her current contact information, the Court believes it is necessary for the Petitioner to show cause why this case should not be dismissed due to the failure to provide a current address or telephone number as required by the local rules. See Local Rules 11-110, 83-132(f).
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Petitioner is to show cause in writing no later than ten (10) days from service of this order why this case should not be dismissed as discussed above.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
