United States District Court, Central District of California
December 22, 2014
PETER ROBERT LANDER
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting Commissioner of Social Security Administration
(IN CHAMBERS) ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE WHY CASE SHOULD NOT BE DISMISSED FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
HONORABLE SHERI PYM, UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
On February 25, 2014, plaintiff filed a Complaint for Review of Final Decision of the Commissioner of Social Security pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 405(g). On February 26, 2014, 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 plaintiffs Memorandum in Support of Plaintiffs Complaint. Defendant filed her Answer on November 12, 2014. Plaintiffs Memorandum in Support of Plaintiff s Complaint was therefore due on December 12, 2014.
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 do 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 January 6, 2015 why this action should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute. Plaintiff may discharge the Order to Show Cause by filing, not later than January 6, 2015, a written request for a reasonable extension of time for plaintiff to prepare, file, and serve a Memorandum in Support of Plaintiffs Complaint.
The court warns plaintiff that failure to respond to the Order to Show Cause by January 6, 2015, 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.
