IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
September 25, 2009
CE RESOURCE, INC., PLAINTIFF,
MAGELLAN GROUP, LLC; JOSEPH KNIGHT DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Morrison C. England, Jr. United States District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
On September 18, 2009, this Court electronically filed a Memorandum and Order allowing counsel for Defendant Magellan Group, LLC, Mr. Scott A. Conwell, until 12:00 p.m. today, September 25, 2009, to convince the Court that sanctions should not be imposed. In keeping with counsel's actions that instigated this Court's original Order to Show Cause, and this Court's assessment of his practice in its last Order, counsel has failed to file any response with the Court within the required time frame.
Accordingly, the Court imposes sanctions against Mr. Conwell in the amount of $1,500.00, $1000.00 for his past failures and $500.00 for failing to make any showing today. Said sanctions shall be paid to the Clerk of this Court within ten (10) days of the date this Order is electronically filed, and Conwell is further ordered to file a notice with this Court within the same ten (10)-day period that the sanctions have in fact been remitted. Finally, Conwell is ordered to comply with all ethical responsibilities attendant upon an attorney with respect to the sanctions that have now been imposed against him.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
