IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
November 18, 2010
JOSE ALVARADO, PLAINTIFF,
KATHLEEN SEBELIUS AND DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, DEFENDANTS.
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
On August 4, 2010, the court issued an Order Re Consent or Request for Reassignment, accompanied by an appropriate form. Plaintiff was ordered to serve the Order Re Consent or Request for Reassignment upon each defendant concurrently with service of the court's Scheduling Order. All parties were required to complete and file the Consent or Request for Reassignment form within 90 days from the filing date of the court's order. The ninety-day period has expired, and neither party has filed the required form.
The court's docket reflects that defendants have not filed a response to plaintiff's complaint, have not lodged a copy of the administrative record, and have not filed a notice of appearance.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff shall show good cause in writing, within fourteen days after this order is filed, for the failure to file a "Consent to Assignment or Request for Reassignment" form. Prompt filing of an executed form will be deemed compliance with this requirement as to plaintiff; and
2. Plaintiff shall file a status report, within fourteen days after this order is filed, setting forth all steps taken to serve the defendants in accordance with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(i).
