MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
Concurrently before the Court is a Motion by Plaintiff Robert Cox ("Plaintiff") for Preliminary Injunctive Relief pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 65(b) and a Motion by Defendants Aurora Loan Services and Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. ("Defendants") to Dismiss Plaintiff's First Amended Complaint for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6). Plaintiff has failed to timely file Opposition to Defendants' Motion to Dismiss.
Pursuant to Local Rule 230(c), opposition to a motion must be filed not less than fourteen (14) days prior to the date of the hearing. The date of the hearing on motion was set for January 14, 2010. Fourteen (14) days prior to the hearing was December 31, 2009. No opposition was filed as required. In light of the fact that no opposition was filed by Plaintiff, Defendants' Motion to Dismiss*fn1 (Docket No. 15) is GRANTED with leave to amend.
Plaintiff may file an amended complaint not later than twenty (20) days after the date this Memorandum and Order is filed electronically. If no amended complaint is filed within said twenty (20)-day period, without further notice, Plaintiff's claims will be dismissed without leave to amend.
Accordingly, Plaintiff's Motion for Preliminary Injunction (Docket No. 11) is DENIED. A party seeking a preliminary injunction must establish a likelihood of success. Raich v. Ashcroft, 352 F.3d 122, 1227 (9th Cir. 2003) As Plaintiff's Complaint has been currently dismissed, no such likelihood of success is present.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
