(In Chambers) Order to Show Cause Re: Staying Action
Pursuant to the Court’s Order of October 17, 2016, all of plaintiff Melvin Glapion’s federal
claims in this action have been dismissed with prejudice. (See Dkt. 49, Court’s Order of October
17, 2016, at 8). On August 31, 2016, plaintiff filed an action in state court against defendant Kroll
Associates, Inc., asserting essentially identical factual allegations and claims as in this case.1
See Glapion v. Kroll Associates, Inc., Case No. BC632428, Complaint for Damages (Cal. Super.
Ct. L.A. Cty. 2016); (see also Dkt. 46, Notice of Duplicate Action Filed by Plaintiff in Los Angeles
Superior Court). It is well-settled that the court “may, with propriety, find it is efficient for its own
docket and the fairest course for the parties to enter a stay of an action before it, pending
resolution of independent proceedings which bear upon the case.” Leyva v. Certified Grocers of
California, Ltd., 593 F.2d 857, 863 (9th Cir.), cert. denied, 444 U.S. 827 (1979).
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED THAT, no later than October 21, 2016, the parties shall show
cause in writing why this action should not be stayed pending resolution of the state court action
filed by plaintiff on August 31, 2016. Failure to submit a response to this Order by the
deadline set forth above may result in the imposition of sanctions, the staying of this
action, and/or dismissal of this action for lack of prosecution.
Initials of Preparer
According to the public docket available on the website of the Los Angeles County
Superior Court, www.lacourt.org/page/ci0104, plaintiff’s state action is currently scheduled for a
hearing on November 9, 2016.
