The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lucy H. Koh United States District Judge
ORDER REGARDING STATUS OF CASE
Plaintiff J&J Sports Productions, Inc. filed a complaint against Josefina Trujillo a/k/a Josefina A. Trujillo d/b/a The Roundup, aka Paraiso Night Club ("Plaintiff") on March 10, 2011. 19
Defendant apparently served an Answer on Plaintiff, although Defendant has never filed the 20 Answer with the Court. See ECF No. 12. Plaintiff filed a motion to strike the affirmative defenses 21 in Defendant's Answer on July 19, 2011. A case management conference was held on July 27, 22 2011, at which Defendant failed to appear. At the case management conference, Defendant was 23 ordered to (1) file a copy of her Answer by August 3, 2011, and (2) respond to Plaintiff's motion to 24 strike by August 5, 2011. Defendant has, to date, failed to comply with both court orders. 25
Pending before the Court is Plaintiff's motion to strike, set for hearing on October 13, 2011.
The Defendant has yet to file her Answer, and therefore, the Court cannot evaluate Plaintiff's 27 motion to strike Defendant's affirmative defenses. Plaintiff is therefore ordered to file a status 28 update by October 5, 2011, informing the Court whether the Plaintiff has been in contact with the
Defendant, other than receipt of the served Answer, and if not, whether Plaintiff intends to seek a 2
Notice of Default in light of the Plaintiff's failure to file an Answer.
