CIVIL MINUTES - GENERAL

n/a n/a Proceedings: (IN CHAMBERS) ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE WHY CASE SHOULD
NOT BE DISMISSED FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
On September 29, 2011 plaintiff filed a Complaint for Review of Final Decision the Commissioner of Social Security pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 405(g). On October 4, 2011, the court issued its Case Management Order in this matter. The Case Management Order set forth, inter alia, a schedule for filing of the Answer followed by a Memorandum in Support of Plaintiff's Complaint. Defendant filed his Answer on February 10, 2012. Plaintiff's Memorandum in Support of Plaintiff's Complaint was therefore due on March 12, 2012.
To date, the court has received no such Memorandum from plaintiff. Nor has plaintiff requested or obtained an order from the court granting an extension of time to so. It therefore appears that plaintiff has violated the court's orders and is not properly prosecuting this matter.
Accordingly, the court hereby issues this Order to plaintiff to Show Cause in writing not later than April 17, 2012 why this action should not be dismissed for failure prosecute. Plaintiff may discharge the Order to Show Cause by filing, not later than
17, 2012, a written request for a reasonable extension of time for plaintiff to prepare, file, and serve a Memorandum in Support of Plaintiff's Complaint.
The court warns plaintiff that failure to respond to the Order to Show Cause April 17, 2012, or further failure to prosecute this action in accordance with the Case Management Order and other court orders, may result in dismissal of this action for failure to prosecute.
