Proceedings: (IN CHAMBERS) ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE WHY DEFENDANT'S MOTION TO DISMISS SHOULD NOT BE GRANTED 
Plaintiffs Neman Financial, L.P. and Shervin Neman (collectively, " Plaintiffs") initiated this lawsuit on February 28, 2014 in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. (Compl.) Defendant Citigroup Global Markets, Inc. (" Citigroup") removed the matter to this Court on April 2, 2014. (Dkt. No. 1.) Plaintiffs are appearing pro se in this action. ( See Dkt. No. 20.)
Currently pending before the Court is Citigroup's Motion to Dismiss pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(6). (Dkt. No. 23.) This matter is set for hearing on December 8, 2014, at 1:30 p.m. Under the Court's Local Rule 7-9, a party must oppose a motion at least twenty-one (21) days prior to the scheduled hearing date. C.D. Cal. L.R. 7-9. Accordingly, Plaintiffs' opposition, if any, was due no later than November 17, 2014. As of this date, Plaintiffs have failed to file an opposition. Pursuant to the Court's Local Rule 7-12, failure to file an opposition " may be deemed consent to the granting . . . of the motion." C.D. Cal. L.R. 7-12.
Accordingly, Plaintiffs are ORDERED TO SHOW CAUSE why Citigroup's Motion to Dismiss should not be granted. Plaintiffs' response to this Order must be filed no later than Wednesday, December 3, 2014, at 5:00 p.m. An appropriate response will include reasons demonstrating good cause for the failure to timely oppose Citigroup's motion.
