IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 16, 2012
DANIEL BOONE, PETITIONER,
RICHARD B. IVES, RESPONDENT.
Petitioner, a federal prisoner without counsel, has filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus. See 28 U.S.C. § 2241. On January 26, 2012, respondent filed a motion to dismiss. Dckt. No. 17. Petitioner has not filed an opposition or a statement of no opposition.
Local Rule 230(l) provides that opposition to the granting of a motion, or a statement of non-opposition thereto, must be served and filed no later than twenty-one days after the date of service of the motion. A responding party's failure "to file an opposition or to file a statement of no opposition may be deemed a waiver of any opposition to the granting of the motion and may result in the imposition of sanctions." L. R. 230(l). Failure to comply with any order or with the Local Rules "may be grounds for imposition by the Court of any and all sanctions authorized by statute or Rule or within the inherent power of the Court." L. R. 110. The court may dismiss this action with or without prejudice, as appropriate, if a party disobeys an order or the Local Rules. See Ferdik v. Bonzelet, 963 F.2d 1258, 1263 (9th Cir. 1992) (district court did not abuse discretion in dismissing pro se plaintiff's complaint for failing to obey an order to re-file an amended complaint to comply with Federal Rules of Civil Procedure); Carey v. King, 856 F.2d 1439, 1440-41 (9th Cir. 1988) (dismissal for pro se plaintiff's failure to comply with local rule regarding notice of change of address affirmed).
Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that, within 21 days of the date of this order, petitioner shall file either an opposition to the motion to dismiss or a statement of no opposition. Failure to comply with this order may result in this action being dismissed.
