IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 9, 2009
FINISAR CORPORATION, PLAINTIFF,
UDS UNIPHASE CORPORATION, DEFENDANT
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Maxine M. Chesney United States District Judge
SECOND ORDER DIRECTING PLAINTIFF TO SUBMIT CHAMBERS ORDER AND THE COURT'S COPY IN COMPLIANCE WITH GENERAL STANDING ORDERS
On January 30, 2009, plaintiff electronically filed its opposition to defendant's motion for summary judgment, as well as two declarations in support of such opposition. Plaintiff has violated General Order 45 and the Court's Standing Orders, however, by failing to deliver to the Clerk's Office "no later than noon on the business day following the day that the papers are filed electronically, one paper copy of each document that is filed electronically . . . marked 'Chambers Copy' and . . . clearly marked with the judge's name, case number, and 'Chambers Copy-Do Not File.'" See General Order 45 § VI.G; see also Standing Orders for Civil Cases Assigned to the Honorable Maxine M. Chesney ¶ 2. Plaintiff is hereby ORDERED to comply with General Order 45 and the Court's Standing Orders by immediately submitting a chambers copy of the above-referenced documents.
The Court has previously advised plaintiff of its failure to comply with General Order 45 and the Court's Standing Order in connection with earlier-filed documents. (See Order, filed October 21, 2008.) Such reminder appears to have had little to no effect on compelling compliance therewith. Parties are expected to comply with court rules without repeated reminders. Accordingly, plaintiff is hereby advised that the Court will impose sanctions, including, but not limited to, striking from the record any electronically-filed document of which a chambers copy has not been timely provided to the Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
