On March 7, 2011, this Court issued its Order Setting Scheduling Conference. Pursuant to the Order, and to Rules 16 and 26(f) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and Local Rules 16 and 26, the scheduling conference was set for June 27, 2011, at 11:00 a.m. and counsel were to confer and to file with the Court, no later than seven days before the scheduling conference, a Joint Rule 26(f) Report. No Report has been filed.
Counsel for Defendant has filed a declaration describing his efforts to meet with Plaintiff's counsel to prepare a Report.
The date previously set for the scheduling conference is vacated. Plaintiff is ordered to show cause in writing no later than July 6, 2011, why this action should not be dismissed, and why sanctions should not be imposed pursuant to Local Rule 83-7, for Plaintiff's failure to prosecute this action and failure to comply with the Court's order and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

Counsel are reminded that paper Chambers copies must be delivered pursuant to this Court's General
Orders and the Local Rules. Plaintiff's counsel is further reminded to review carefully the General Orders and Local Rules for this district and all of this Court's standing orders. Further failures to comply will result in sanctions.
