The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dean D. Pregerson United States District Judge
ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANTS' MOTION TO DISMISS PLAINTIFFS' COMPLAINT
[Docket No. 7]
Presently before the court is Defendants' Motion to Dismiss Plaintiffs' Complaint ("Motion"). Because Plaintiffs have not filed an opposition, the court GRANTS the Motion.
Central District of California Local Rule 7-9 requires an opposing party to file an opposition to any motion at least twenty-one (21) days prior to the date designated for hearing the motion. Additionally, Local Rule 7-12 provides that "[t]he failure to file any required paper, or the failure to file it within the deadline, may be deemed consent to the granting or denial of the motion."
The hearing on Defendants' Motion was set for March 19, 2012. Plaintiffs' opposition was therefore due by February 27, 2012. As of the date of this Order, Plaintiffs have not filed an opposition, or any other filing that could be construed as a request for a continuance.*fn1 Accordingly, the court deems Plaintiffs' failure to oppose as consent to granting the Motion to Dismiss, and GRANTS the Motion. Plaintiffs' Complaint is dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
