UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE NINTH CIRCUIT
July 23, 2009
SOUNTHONE VIET KATEKEO, PETITIONER - APPELLANT,
T. FELKER, WARDEN, RESPONDENT - APPELLEE.
Eastern District of California, Sacramento D.C. No. 2:08-cv-02776-JAM-GGH.
The judgment of this Court, entered 7/1/09, takes effect this date.
This constitutes the formal mandate of this Court issued pursuant to Rule 41(a) of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure.
A review of the record suggests that this court may lack jurisdiction over the appeal because appellant's premature appeal from the magistrate judge's findings and recommendations is not cured by the subsequent entry of a final judgment by the district court. See Serine v. Peterson, 989 F.2d 371, 372-73 (9th Cir. 1993) (premature appeal from magistrate judge's order not cured by subsequent entry of judgment by district court). To date, appellant has not filed a notice of appeal from the district court's May 22, 2009 judgment.
Within 21 days after the date of this order, appellant shall move for voluntary dismissal of the appeal or show cause why it should not be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. If appellant elects to show cause, a response may be filed within 8 days after service of the memorandum.
If appellant does not comply with this order, the Clerk shall dismiss this appeal pursuant to Ninth Circuit Rule 42-1.
Briefing is suspended pending further order of the court.
