Jarrod Gordon v. Stan Sniff, Riverside County Sheriff
Present: The Honorable:
ALEXANDER F. MacKINNON, U.S. Magistrate Judge
Court Reporter / Recorder
Attorneys Present for Plaintiff:
Attorneys Present for Defendants:
Proceedings (In Chambers): Order to Show Cause
Defendant filed a Motion to Dismiss on November 7, 2016, contending that the
Complaint should be dismissed for failure to state a claim and, alternatively, that the damage
claims should be dismissed. (ECF No. 19.) On November 8, 2016, plaintiff was informed
by minute order that he had until December 7, 2016 to file an opposition to the Motion to
Dismiss. Plaintiff was further advised that failure to oppose the Motion to Dismiss could be
construed as consent to the granting of the Motion and could result in a recommendation that
the action be dismissed. (ECF No. 21.) Plaintiff failed to timely file an opposition (or a
statement of non-opposition) and failed to seek to an extension of time to do so. On January
6, 2017, plaintiff notified the Court of a change of address, providing his new address as:
Jarrod Gordon, BB-8328, Wasco State Prison, P.O. Box 5500, Wasco, CA 93280. (ECF No.
26.) On January 10, 2017, defendant filed a notice that plaintiff had not filed an opposition
and requested a ruling on the Motion to Dismiss. (ECF No. 27.)
Accordingly, plaintiff is Ordered to Show Cause why this action should not be
dismissed for failure to prosecute and why defendant’s Motion to Dismiss should not be
granted. Plaintiff shall respond to this Order in a written submission filed and served on or
before February 10, 2017.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
