IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 5, 2012
GEORGE S. LOUIE, PLAINTIFF,
STOMER FAMILY 2000 REVOCABLE TRUST DBA STROMER REALTY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
On March 1, 2012, the undersigned held a hearing addressed to two motions filed by intervening non-party lien claimant, Elena Sadur, consisting of: (1) Sadur motion set aside the dismissal of this case (Dkt. No. 53); and (2) motion to declare plaintiff a vexatious litigant (Dkt. No. 52).*fn1 As stated at the hearing, the undersigned denied Sadur's motion to declare plaintiff a vexatious litigant and ordered Sadur to file supplemental briefing, within seven days of the date of the hearing, in regards to her motion to set aside the closure of this case. Shortly after the hearing March 1, 2012, and before the undersigned entered a formal order after the hearing, Sadur filed her supplemental brief (Dkt. No. 78). The undersigned's order denying Sadur's motion to declare plaintiff a vexatious litigant and ordering supplemental briefing was signed on March 1, 2012, and docketed on March 2, 2012. (Order, Mar. 1, 2012, Dkt. No. 79.)
Although the undersigned appreciates Sadur's eagerness to file her supplemental brief, the undersigned requires Sadur to file an amended supplemental brief on the deadline set forth in the court's March 1, 2012. Such leave will allow Sadur to address all aspects of the court's order. Indeed, Sadur's failure to address the precise questions presented in the court's order may result in the imposition of sanctions on Sadur, her counsel, or both.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Intervening non-party lien claimant Elena Sadur shall file an amended supplemental brief in accordance with the briefing schedule set forth in the court's March 1, 2012 order.
2. Sadur's failure to address the precise questions presented in the court's March 1, 2012 order may result in the imposition of sanctions on Sadur, her counsel, or both.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
