IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 19, 2009
JAMES BRYANT PLAINTIFF,
GORDON & WONG LAW GROUP, P.C., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Morrison C. England, Jr. United States District Judge
On September 9, 2009, Defendant Gordon & Wong Law Group, P.C. ("Defendant") filed a Motion for Summary Judgment in this matter, and calendared a hearing on said Motion for October 22, 2009. Defendant's Motion, however, does not include a Statement of Undisputed Facts, as required by Local Rule 56-260(a), which states unequivocally as follows:
Each motion for summary judgment or summary adjudication shall be accompanied by a "Statement of Undisputed Facts" that shall enumerate discretely each of the specific material facts relied upon in support of the motion and shall cite the particular portions of any pleading, affidavit, deposition, interrogatory answer, admission or other document relied upon to establish that fact.
In light of Defendant's failure to comply with this mandatory prerequisite for bringing a motion for summary judgment, its Motion (Docket No. 17) is DENIED,*fn1 without prejudice to bringing a motion properly in accordance with the Local Rules. The hearing date of October 22, 2009 is accordingly vacated.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
