The opinion of the court was delivered by: Craig M. Kellison United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiffs, proceeding in pro per, bring this civil action against employees of the United States of America related to real property interests. Pending before the court is the defendant's motion to dismiss (Doc. 10), set for hearing on March 24, 201. Plaintiffs have not filed an opposition to the motion.
Pursuant to Eastern District of California Local Rules, any opposition "to the granting of the motion shall be in writing and shall be filed and served not less than fourteen (14) days preceding the noticed . . . hearing date." See Local Rule 230(c). The local rules further provide that "[n]o party will be entitled to be heard in opposition to a motion at oral arguments if opposition to the motion has not been timely filed by that party." Id.
In addition, plaintiffs have noticed a motion to vacate the court's prior order substituting the United States of America and dismissing the individual defendants, and to remand this matter to state court (Doc. 11), and set a hearing for the same day.
