CIVIL MINUTES - GENERAL
Ellen Matheson Not Present
PROCEEDINGS: (IN CHAMBERS) ORDER: (1) TAKING UNDER SUBMISSION SCHEDULING CONFERENCE FROM THE COURT'S JULY 13, 2009 CALENDAR AT 10:00 A.M.; AND (2) TO DEFENDANT TO SHOW CAUSE WHY SANCTIONS SHOULD NOT BE IMPOSED
On June 2, 2009, the Court ordered the parties to file a joint 26(f) report due July 2, 2009. While plaintiffs William and Arla Murray, Louis DiMichele, and Henry Gindt ("plaintiffs") have filed a unilateral report, the parties have failed to file a Joint Report as required under Rule 26(f). A scheduling conference in this matter is set for hearing on the Court's July 13, 2009, calendar.
The Court finds the scheduling conference appropriate for submission on the papers without oral argument. See Local Rule 7-15 (stating that the Court may dispense with oral argument on any matter unless otherwise required); Fed. R. Civ. P. 78. The matter is, therefore, removed from the Court's July 13, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. calendar.
Based on the Declaration of Non-Cooperation in Rule 26 Meeting and Report, the Court orders defendant Nassbridges to show cause in writing, no later than July 17, 2009, why sanctions pursuant to Local Rule 83-7 payable to the U.S. District Court Clerk should not be assessed and why default judgment in favor of the plaintiffs should not be entered for his failure to file a Joint Report as required under Rule 26(f).
The Clerk shall serve this minute order on all parties in this action.
