IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 17, 2009
ALEX BAILEY, PLAINTIFF,
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, DEFENDANT.
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
On November 5, 2008, the court issued a scheduling order and an order re consent or request for reassignment. The orders were accompanied by a form titled "Consent to Assignment or Request for Reassignment," which allows a party to consent to proceed before a United States Magistrate Judge, or request reassignment of the case to a United States District Judge. Pursuant to Appendix A(j) of the Local Rules, and as directed in the "Order Re Consent or Request for Reassignment," all parties were required to execute the form and return it to the Clerk of the Court within ninety days after the order was issued. The Local Rules also required plaintiff to serve a copy of these documents on all parties to the action and file a proof of service with the court. See L.R., App. A(j). The required time has now expired and plaintiff has not returned the necessary form to the court.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff shall show cause in writing within ten days why the necessary document has not been filed with the court. The filing by plaintiff of an executed "Consent to Assignment or Request for Reassignment" form will be deemed compliance with this order.
