Pellegrino v. Meredith, et al.

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
ANTHONY JOHN PELLEGRINO,
Case No. 1:15-cv-00218-LJO-SAB
ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE WHY
SANCTIONS SHOULD NOT ISSUE
LYNN R. MEREDITH,
RESPONSE DUE MAY 15, 2015
On April 13, 2015, Plaintiff Anthony John Pellegrino (“Plaintiff”) filed what purports to
18 be proofs of service. (ECF Nos. 5, 6.) These proofs of service make representations that
19 Defendant Lynn R. Meredith and County of Stanislaus were served by a Natalia M. Bower with
20 summonses in this action on April 7, 2015.
However, the Court’s records indicate that the Court has not issued any summonses in
22 this action.
Accordingly, any suggestion that Defendants have been served with a valid
23 summons appears to be a fraudulent misrepresentation to the Court, as well as Defendants.
The Court will order Plaintiff to show cause why he should not be sanctioned by this
25 court for his apparent misrepresentations. Plaintiff shall file a written response to this order to
26 show cause on or before May 15, 2015. Plaintiff’s written response shall explain the factual
27 basis of his claim that Defendants have been served with valid summonses and state why
28 sanctions, including dismissal/terminating sanctions if warranted, should not be issued for
1 Plaintiff’s conduct.
Based upon the foregoing, it is HEREBY ORDERED that:
Plaintiff shall SHOW CAUSE why sanctions should not be issued by this Court
against Plaintiff for fraudulent misrepresentations made in the proofs of service
filed on April 13, 2015 (ECF Nos. 5, 6); and
Plaintiff’s written response to this order to show cause shall be filed on or before
May 15, 2015. Plaintiff is forewarned that failure to comply with this order may
result in further sanctions, up to and including dismissal of this action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
