Proceedings (In Chambers): Order to Show Cause
On September 25, 2017, plaintiff filed a Civil Rights Complaint while detained at the Twin
Tower Correctional Facility in Los Angeles, California. On November 28, 2017, the Court
dismissed plaintiff’s complaint with leave to amend for the reasons that plaintiff failed to comply
with Rule 8 in that the complaint fails to state a short and plain statement of each claim that is
sufficient to give each defendant fair notice of what plaintiff’s claims are and the grounds upon
which they rest. Additionally, plaintiff’s allegations appear insufficient to state any claim on which
relief may be granted. Plaintiff was ordered to file a First Amended Complaint by December 28,
2017. Plaintiff was admonished that if he fails to timely file a First Amended Complaint or fails to
remedy the deficiencies of his Complaint, the Court would recommend that the action be dismissed
without leave to amend and with prejudice. A review of the docket indicates that a First Amended
Complaint has not been filed.
Plaintiff shall show cause on or before January 25, 2018, why this action should not be
dismissed due to plaintiff’s failure to prosecute. The filing of a First Amended Complaint on or
before January 25, 2018 shall discharge the order to show cause. Plaintiff is hereby cautioned that
failing to comply with this Order and/or to show cause, will result in the recommendation that
this action be dismissed for failure to prosecute.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
