(IN CHAMBERS) ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE WHY COMPLAINT
SHOULD NOT BE DISMISSED FOR FAILURE TO PROSECUTE
On January 24, 2017, plaintiff Vahe Tahmasian, a federal prisoner proceeding pro
se, filed a civil rights complaint pursuant to Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Fed.
Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388, 91 S. Ct. 1999, 29 L. Ed. 2d 619 (1971). His
complaint alleges that employees of the Federal Bureau of Prisons conspired to deny him
his right to freedom of speech and his right to petition the government for a redress of
grievances. On August 29, 2017, this court, having completed screening of the
complaint, dismissed it with leave to file a First Amended Complaint by September 28,
2017. Over four weeks having passed beyond this deadline, the court has not received a
First Amended Complaint or any other communication from plaintiff.
Accordingly, within twenty-one (21) days of the date of this Order, that is, by
November 20, 2017, plaintiff is ORDERED TO SHOW CAUSE, in writing, why this
action should not be dismissed for failure to prosecute and/or comply with a court order.
Plaintiff is cautioned that his failure to timely file a response to this Order to Show Cause
will be deemed by the court as consent to the dismissal of this action without prejudice.
In the event plaintiff wishes to voluntarily dismiss this action, plaintiff may complete and
return the enclosed Notice of Dismissal form by November 20, 2017.
If plaintiff files a First Amended Complaint by November 20, 2017, this Order to
Show Cause will be automatically discharged, and plaintiff need not respond to it
