ORDER IMPOSING SANCTIONS AND CONTINUING STATUS CONFERENCE
An Order to Show Cause ("OSC") issued on January 25, 2011, directing Plaintiff to explain why sanctions should not be imposed since he failed to file a timely status report. (ECF No. 14.) Because of this failure, a previously scheduled status conference was continued to February 28, 2011, and the parties were required to file a joint status report no later than fourteen (14) days prior to the rescheduled status conference. Id. Plaintiff failed to respond to the OSC, and again failed to file a status report.
Since Plaintiff's counsel failed to respond to the OSC and has twice failed to file a timely status report, Paul R. Bartleson and/or the Law Offices of Paul R. Bartleson are sanctioned four hundred dollars ($400.00). This sanction shall be paid to the Clerk of this Court no later than 4:00 p.m. on February 28, 2011, by a check made payable to the "United States Treasury." Proof of payment shall be filed within five (5) days of payment. This sanction is personal to counsel or his law firm and shall not be transmitted to counsel's clients.
Further, since the status of this case has not yet been determined, the status conference scheduled for February 28, 2011, is continued to March 28, 2011, at 9:00 a.m. A joint status report shall be filed no later than fourteen (14) days prior to the status conference.*fn1
